Waiting For The Rain

… and practicing Daguerreotype frame effects while at it. Which gives me plenty of time, as for months to come we will go through yet more skin crackling drought, tons of dust and harsh, cold winds … only to gradually be replaced by scorching heat before it eventually and hopefully  starts to rain. When? You […]

Silver Efex Pro? Not For Namibia!

… or how not to run an online shop. To start of with, I have downloaded the trial version and have worked with the software for 15 days. It is very good and a welcome upgrade to Theimagingfactory’s B/W converter, which I have been using happily for quite some years  now. I will write a […]

Harsh Tranquility

I took this picture at the Namibian coast (Atlantic), at a place called Mile 108. If this very part of coastline, also called the Skeleton Coast, would be a child or a pet, you would probably refer to it as having “a face only a mother can love”. It is harsh and cold, most of […]

More Candid Camera

It’s interesting, how you shoot more pictures of the first born – me at least. The boys’ granddad even mentioned to me that in his case child photography decreased gradually from number one to number four. I remember running around with the camera glued to my forehead during the early days/months/years of Maximilian. Pictures were […]

Maximilian & Lobo

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, […]

Review @ dpreview.com

… or does the Mark II feel somewhat “plasticy”? As usual and due to the fact that I rarely buy equipment at or shortly after release, I’m way behind the drag curve with this. Also, I look after glass and gear extremely well and thus work with a given model for a long time. I […]

The Mask

The Mirror Conspiracy or Am I on To Something? Playing around with HDR and Tonal Mapping lately, I am revisiting many of my Namib Desert and Namib Naukluft images, which never made it to the digital darkroom. Not because they are just plain bad, but because mostly there is at least one thing wrong with […]
