it's blogtime again !


my last entry surprisingly cought some more attention than i would have thought. still makes me happy that even the clown and the ninja couldn't resist loving it.. (i must admit it was quite genious!)


back to non-da-related life. this blog will feature a few prints i've done lately. been in the darkroom a lot recently. printing for chris and keith.. and still have to print for clayton !! fiber is just so much work but fucking worth it !


also i got this camera "lomo fisheye 2" for fun.. never thought i'd buy that sorta stuff... but how else should i get rid of the tons of expired films and cheap rolls i got for free everytime i'm at the store... ?

i thought it'd be waste shooting those with the leica. yeah, leica. got a new one. chrome this time, with 35cron 2nd generation. seems all good to me.. haven't seen any scans yet.. but i feel that it's good shit.. it must be, it's DEUTSCH !


so now to some visual entertainment.. some fishy shots.


theres the camera btw:

and there the M! with 40/1.4 nokton i had for one day.. nice lens even for a non-leitz ;)




dude. streetshots with this camera are the shizzle.. who needs a M anyway ?









now to the prints. remember this one ? the only fiber i have scanned. since it's a small one (18x24cm).. all the other fiber are too large to scan... which is kinda crap because i'd prefer to share these... but rc does it too.. still much better than scans from the neg.







please compare to the neg-scan... >> DA-scrap




(this print was on gradiation 2 overall, 5 overall and burn downside, and 1 burn on the top)



some architecture snapshot.. but with correct exposure and enlargement damn eye candy if you ask me..



shooting at family meetings often turns out to be boring.. anyway, this time i had some nice b/ws.. this is my fav:





and again. see the difference to the negscan


believe me now that judging bws on a screen and on a scan is nonsense ? print is all, scan is nothing more than a preview.

what up sev? i love the photos you include in your blog.

and, yeah, of course clown-boy and ninja see your stuff ... i put it prominately on both my journal and the blog ...
so ... well ... ya' know.

i opened your print!!!!!! fucking gorgeous ... it's going to the frame shop with me tomorrow!

and ... you're going to hate me ... but ... i have to roll your print ... its 16x20 inches ... i'm sure there's a shop there which can put it under a press for a while.

thoughts?

apixx said...

sind das die photos die du am MI entwickeln warst ?

yeah die prints sind auf jeden fall besser als die neg scans!

weißt du schon was genaueres wg MI(16.8)... ?Wie gesagt wäre da etwas langer in wien.

sonst kann ich nur sagen: Keep up the good work.


WOW des hört sich beschissen an: Keep up the good work... ah gott.

Lomo Fisheye ist schon irgendwie lecka und das schon in der ersten Version! Die Zweite muss ja noch mehr Spass machen...

Was würds mich eigentlich nen 20x30cm bzw. 30x45 print von dir kosten ?

Wenn du deine abgelaufenen Filme nicht los wirst..Ick nehm sie gerne ^^

mama mia, the prints :o

artis said...

for already great photos, the prints looks noticaably better!

m said...

ich stimme flipo zu,
wenn du deine abgelaufenen filme nicht loswirst nehme ich sie ebenfalls gerne. ;).

Since I kinda suck at scanning I'm a definite believer of the "print is everything, scan's nothing" :D
Nice to see some photos of you again. I especially like the familythingone.

making a scanned neg look like a scanned print on a computer monitor isn't hard..

sebastian said...

Und ich dachte schon der comment in meinem Blog wäre ein Scherz, da "chan" an deinem Namen hat mich doch leicht irritiert :-)
Die Lomo is ja mal echt ein süßes Spielzeug und Streetshots mit Fisheye, mal was neues ;-)
Die Prints sind wahrhaft schön, besonders der von ezra gefällt mir sehr. Ich werd, wenn ich in 3 Wochen wieder in meine Heimat ziehe wohl mal den örtlichen Fotoclub unsicher machen und jemanden dazu versklaven mir die Laborarbeit näher zu bringen.
Hab die erste Rolle von meiner Yashica GX zurück und die ersten Shots erstmal auf dA gepostet. Werde demnächst ne Galerie in meinem Blog aufsetzen, hoffe du schaust mal rein.
Freut mich, dass du wieder ne Leica hast. Bin gespannt auf die ersten Fotos.

though nothing beats my fisheye, I'm looking forward to buy this fuckin' lomo!

clayton said...

great works as usual. i've thought to buy one of those goofy fisheye cameras once but didn't. looks like fun anyway!

take your time with my prints.. as long as you don't forget forever! i am too busy these days to do much of anything anyway, including framing art or sending money overseas.

all the best!

shad king said...

love the mood / feel of the family meeting shot...of course the contrast and sharpness too. the print is gorgeous.

highlights in neg scans get muddy with ps work...but the print scans look awesome.

i need to start printing man.
