    24HourProject 2022

    The 24HourProject is a global photography event where photographers publish one photo every hour to document the world around us and raise awareness for climate change. My friend Marian (@m.von.d on Instagram) was the Organiser and Ambassador for Frankfurt so I joined in and prepared for a day of photography in Frankfurt, excited for both […]

  • Lunch break walk

    Lunch break walk

    In my lunch break I took my Fujifilm X30 for a walk through town and tested a new black and white preset I created. I love the strong blacks and subtle, almost soft greys it gives.

  • I swear I know how to spool film

    I swear I know how to spool film

    …but this time I just couldn’t make it work. When you develop Film it needs to be put in a plastic spool so there’s space between the layers of film and every piece of film gets in contact with the developer. I spent 45 minutes trying to spool some 120 film and then gave up […]

  • Testing yet another Konica FS-1

    Testing yet another Konica FS-1

    Some time ago I bought a bundle of untested cameras on eBay that included a Konica Autoreflex TC, a Konica FT-1, and two Konica FS-1 alongside some accessories like flashes and a 35-200mm zoom and macro lens! When everything arrived I got some batteries and tested the cameras. One of the two FS-1 had a […]

  • Random city shots

    Random city shots

    Sunday morning I walked a bit through the city with my Fujifilm X30 and shot these photos with a in-camera Portra 160 preset. I’m quite happy with the results. Have a great start into this 3 day week! ✨

  • Broken mirror selfies

    Broken mirror selfies

    Whenever I find a mirror on the street I just have to take some selfies. On todays photo walk I was lucky enough to find two broken mirrors and decided to snap a few shots with my Fujifilm X30. I quite like how they turned out!

  • Revue 6×6 aka Seagull 4a

    Revue 6×6 aka Seagull 4a

    I didn’t really plan on buying a new camera, but then the Revue 6×6 in seemingly good condition for a decent price was listed on eBay near me. So I contacted the seller, we agreed to meet so I could take a look at the camera and I was very positively surprised! The condition is […]

  • Portrait of me

    Portrait of me

    My wife took this portrait of me using the Zeiss Ikon Nettar 515 folding camera. Shot on Fomapan 100 rated as 200 (pushed one stop), developed in Caffenol for 15 minutes.

  • Using Konica AR lenses on my Canon EOS 1000D

    Using Konica AR lenses on my Canon EOS 1000D

    The other day I found a Konica to EOS Adapter on eBay. I’ve wanted one of these for a while but wasn’t able to find one – either new or used, so I jumped on this one and contacted the seller. After a bit of bartering we agreed on 25 euro + shipping costs and […]

  • Meet the camera: Revue 400 SE

    Meet the camera: Revue 400 SE

    The other day I recieved my new old camera: A Revue 400 SE! It’s a rangefinder camera with full aperture automation, which means I can set a shutter speed and ISO and the camera will chose the aperture. The viewfinder shows a small square in which two images are shows that need to be aligned […]
