In love with Kodak Tri-X + D-76

 

Feeling at home with Kodak Tri-X @ISO 400 + Kodak D76 🙂
The look gets in a direction where I want it to be!

It took me about 14 rolls of film to say that. Mostly Tri-X, some Ilford HP5-experiments and the tough decission between Rodinal and D-76.

Though I’m definitely a grain-lover Rodinal just gave me a way to hefty grain-structure with a loss of detail. Now that I tried to slightly overexpose my frames D-76 gives me a fine but still visible ultra classy grain-structure 🙂

Enough of experimenting! I can finally start to put more detailled work into the Tri-X + D-76-Process 🙂

Overexposing is not a crime!

I should complete the sentence by saying “Overexposing is not a crime … when you shoot film!” 😉

On the last weekend I could finally fully expose my two test-rolls of massive Kodak Tri-X-Overexposing. Okay: “Massive” maybe a bit exaggerated as I’m a coward and started by doing a full stop overexposing after mostly measuring the shadows.

Latest Photowalk with the Fuji X100T

After the last photowalk here in Hamburg I ended up with a lot of nice colour-shots. It was a bright and really sunny day so the conditions seemed to be pretty perfect for classic film-like looks like I was able to produce with some VSCO Lightroom-Presets and adjustments 🙂

I also ended up with a mixture of street and architecture photos which perfectly documents my walk I think.

Hope you enjoy this little selection 🙂

From todays sunny photowalk with the Fuji X100t in Hamburg.
I went home with mostly colour-shots. Don’t know why but most of them just seemed to look a lot better in colour. This is my absolute favorite from today. I had to wait a pretty long time to get the right person in the frame but it was worth the wait I think.

Will be uploading the other shots from the walk soon.

BTW: I finally managed to get a second battery for my fuji as battery-life on this small camera still sucks which means: 2 hours of shooting and I’m empty… So from now on I’ll have 4 hours! 2 hours more to catch the right stranger in perfect light!

Most inspiring Street Photographers 2016

What’s the best training besides taking pictures yourself? Right: Looking at the work from the masters of photography!

I always love to study the pictures of the big icons. They always have well sorted portfolios filled with images that just keeps me thinking WOW!
So I was pretty happy to spot the newest blog-entry from the streethunters.net-Blog with many big and influential-photographers around the world.

About two weeks ago the blog-initiators asked their readers to submit their favorite photographers in the genre of street photography. They finally managed to put together a list out of 20 of the most influential street photographers 2016.

I had a lot of fun visiting all the photographers portfolios and checking all the different approaches and styles 🙂 Sure, there are many names on the list which will mean nothing new for you but there are still artists to explore!

You can check out the complete list HERE.

I’m pretty happy that so many Fuji-Photographers made it on the list including Valèrie Jardin –> I wrote a review about her newest book about the genre of Street Photography which you can check out HERE.

Fuji X100t Photowalk 16.05.2016

 

I had a pretty concentrated photowalk yesterday with the Fuji X100t focussing on blending people into the city-environment.
I don’t think that this genre is a pretty rewarding one but it is totally challenging to me as I often try to search for a sense of timelessness.

I ended up having three shots I am totally happy with which is a good result for me 🙂

You can check them out below.
