The Originators’ Northern Soul & the Fujifilm X-System

The Originators are a Dutch Northern Soul band from the Amsterdam-Utrecht area. Actually they are one of a very limited number of live-bands working that musical field today. Back in June I had the opportunity to see them live on stage for my very first time and thought it might be a good opportunity to check out the super-low-light-gig-shooting abilities of the X-Pro 1…

My first entry for this weeks photo challenge. Shot on the location of Zeche Zollverein (Colliery Zollverein) in my former hometown Essen, once the biggest coalmine in the world. I have spent a whole daytime there shooting recently. Without exageration I can say that it was quite a fruitful day. I will post much more of this in the future and at that opportunity…

Premiere today. The first bilingual post here. And it will become the new standard on this blog. From now on, all posts are going to be written in German and English language, except when there’s very little words that do not need translation. It was about time for a new entry to the Fujifilm X vehicle fleet. The wide-angle range needed an expansion. After…

Back from the USSR

My dearly beloved X-Pro1 asked for a little attention so I decided to treat her a nice vintage portrait lens, the Zenit Helios-44M. Those lenses were produced in old Soviet Russia from 1958 to the early 1990s and are best known for their very special bokeh and excellent portrait skills. Unsurprisingly the lens comes in heavy-duty production quality. I am sure it can be…

Priest in a hurry

Recently I had a little time-out and used it to stroll through the streets of downtown Munich when I saw this priest rushing from left to right and back again over the Odeonsplatz. I wondered what he was doing until I saw the film team in a distance. Actually the guy was an actor in the role of a priest. He had to hurry…

WPC: Selfie 2

One thing I hate about the Fuji X-Pro1 and those razorsharp Fujinon lenses is that they will reproduce every little winkle in your face when doing selfies. They will leave no doubt about you growing older day by day. At the moment I am doing a pretty unusual job. I’m sketching storyboards for educational videos. Yes, you guess it: on paper. With pencils and…

The blue jacket

Happy new year and hello again everybody. As you may have noticed I took a longer break of two months from blogging. Well, I’m back and I promise to post regularly again in the future. What happened in the meantime? I finally fulfilled one of my dreams and got myself a fabulous Fujifilm X-PRO1 together with 18mm and 35mm Fujinon-lenses. For financial reasons my…
