been to germany over the weekend.. visited this wonderful lady on the back of the car here:

won't break chronology though.. so, i'm starting with some random photos i took before the trip, in vienna.

trix, normal.

1/30th panning shot. it can't always be perfect.. still good enough i think.

i wished i had a trix+3 or somerthing similar for this shot, but i only had the 400 one, already shot a few frames.. so i went with 400iso here. 1 second exposure time.. couldn't believe my eyes when i scanned it... handheld.. who the fuck needs IS ?? shoot M ;)

8h trip to germany, by train.. it's horrible.. here the olfactory train-toilet-mirror self shot. i'm very flattered by the tones for a trix+3 here though.

one more a rangefinder was the only useful tool for this photo. i never could have focused with a slr here i also doubt any AF would have focused correctly here. shot through a "dotted" glas.. funny that you haven't seen as much detail with your eyes than on the photo because f2.0 blurred the glas-print structure. exposure was more guessed here, since the camera metered on the white surface and would have totally underexposed it.

i'm curious what this looks like on paper !

so miriam and i have been to a concert. many DJs (electro shit) and deichkind as main gig.. they had water toilets, amazing !

the music was crap imo, but some people still were partying.. btw: she's looking straight in my camera.. i'm a lucky bastard this time, since shooting 1/8th in the mosh pit is kinda.. yeah

well.. FINALLY... after hours, they started to play. "krawall und remmi demmi" in a picture here:

(i jumped with the crowd and took this one at 1/8th, panning deluxe i'd say :D )

decided to leave the mosh pit. wasn't such a great concert for me.. so i started walking a round and shoot a few frames.

some staff making fun of other staff..

the "official" photographer.. with his dslr climbed up the construction.. maybe he had a nice view

but i doubt he has a photo like that, ready to be printed on real photo paper ;)

found my first victim for a shot. seemd like relationship problems or something.

took one of these. i knew it was blurry.. but then again, i didn't want to take another one for the sake of shooting these two "main subjects" of most photographers around.. kinda boring.

more motif seeking.. the holy 1/8th here once again. the typical "i'm writing an important message with my fancy cell phone" pose:

some people decided to rest a little.. in sweaty smoky air and 150dB sound.. hmm.. very calm it was !

some decided to sleep a little..

in all kind of poses..

did i mention their great air condition ?

miriam after the concert :D.. glad i was shooting and not in there between topless homer simpsons.

back in vienna again.. back to business. trix+3

random shot.

it's winter. time of alcohol. met an old bud again. we took the opportunity and visited one bar after another to waste many bucks on alcohol.. like i said, back to business.

we've been the last ones there, as you can see..

how very retarded:

next bar. next beer.

they served lots of vodka. he went to the bar and fridge like a pendlum clock.. and the vodka got emptier and emptier

she was busy for hours, writing a text message..

other "guests" enjoyed their stay too

well we had to leave again. to the last bar that had opened till 5am on sunday. at a wurstel stand, a lady showed us a map with all bars around the corner and their opening times.. that was nice.. so we found another one and had another drink there.

stumbled across this paint tub..

seemed like it had learned to fly !

the other night. on the way to the darkroom.. wasting the last frames

kinda funny. this car and the other one with the paint.

I like many of the concert shots, and how they're different from what you normally see, lots of great motives

hay, I just wanted to ask you about taking portraits in public, mainly the photographs on trains. Here in england i think people are very suspicious of people taking photographs. I was just wondering how you go about getting those shots? do you try and take them covertly, or do you find that people just don't mind?

Are you going to have a new deviantART account? or are you going to say 'fuck it' to that site?

Ryan Marr said...

you got some great shots at the concert. this is one of the obvious favorites

the paint shots are great too the contrast is great.

The paint tub shots were hilarious :D

wirklich sehr gute fotos, die du da vom konzert gemacht hast. ich finde du hast die atmosphäre sehr gut eingefangen, besonders die schlafenden/ruhenden leute gefallen mir sehr gut. speziell das hier:

Und die Bilder vom Farbeimer zeigen mal wieder wie wichtig es ist, immer seine Kamera dabei zu haben. Die Situation ist ja wohl genial!

trix+3 würd ich auch gern mal schießen. leider macht meine yashica nur 800 asa mit und ich glaube meinen ersten film davon hab ich durch zu langes fixieren etwas versaut. aber naja, man lernt durch seine fehler :-)

hättest du vielleicht mal die muse dir ein paar meiner negscans anzuschauen und mir vielleicht zu sagen, was ich falsch gemacht haben könnte?

what have you used to cover Leica logo?
I use black tape... but on a chrome M6 looks like shit.

Tomé Duarte said...

love the "staff making fun of other staff"!

was in lisbon this weekend, also in a concert with DSLR and OM2. Man, i'll never use DSLR in a concert again! fucking WB jungle.

getting laid saved my weekend though.

Henri said... is fucking good!
( that one too, of course!)

klaus said...

Knusper Bilder, da gibt es echt keinen Grund mehr für IS oder ähnliche Faxen... Wie hoch ist denn eigentlich nun der nominelle ISO Wert vom Großteil deiner Bilder?

Die Konzert-Bilder sind sehr gelungen, vor allem und gefallen mir recht gut - bei letzteren wirkt das Bokeh sehr malerisch (oder ist das die sagenumwobene Leica Optik?).

War so frei, dich auf meiner Seite zu verlinken - gute Nacht!

Suzan said...

Great shots from the concert! Really like the couple of ones with the silhouettes. And that portrait of Miriam with that content, tired look after a good night dancing your ass off.
"Sehr gut" paint :D And than those cars. Hahaha, just great. Shot of the moustacheguy is one of my favs too!

Hey Sev. Nice ones, as usual :) Some are classic. Like the first one, for example. I bet she loves that shot.

Btw, i got my new shiny DA account (adamkozlowski) and i'm putting new stuff there. Care to check that out and comment? I'd be grateful.
