from the last roll of trix(+3).

still working on my series of sleeping people in the public transport.



having dinner at my fathers place again. his cuisine is exquisite as always. i love seafood.


on the way home i stumbled across this scene. it was very windy that night. it was a hard crash. i was really thinking about if someone might have died here.

The ones of the car are a bit chilling - also odd to see it just left there... post apocalyptic style. The last one is pretty sweet and would be nice printed with some real non-LCD screen blacks.

Are you doing a series on car crashes now? I like what I've seen.

@will: you're damn right. last night i was printing again since a few weeks.. and it feels just great having some nice frames printed on fiber. i have also enlarged this particular one and looks much better of course with some high d-max blacks ... !

@ryan: not really.. i have captured this particular one so often because of the atmosphere i felt. usually i see a wrecked car and don't feel much, this time it told a story to me.

i'm more doing a series of people walking at night:

vienna, naschmarkt

vienna, gürtel

vienna, karlsplatz

and the paris frame i can't find.. the two people walking in paris, louvre... similar to these

Kira said...

Severin,could you please tell the technical details of the shot "vienna,karsplatz"?

@kira:

camera: leica m6
lens: summicron 35mm f2.0
aperture used: f2.0
shutterspeed: 1/8th second
film: kodak trix400 exposed and developed at 400asa

it's a "panning" shot. you have a long exposure time and move the camera with the subject. it's easier with rangefinder cameras, because you see the finder while you expose, unlike SLRs..

i'm gonna have to try it with a slr cause i don't have other option this moment,but maybe one day:)

thanks!

Love all of your night work man, never fails to stun me. The way you work the street-lamp lighting is fantastic.

i see a UFO series coming...

Last one looks great.

Crash photos are stopping. Just yesterday I happened to drive by a crash-accident. Police had just arrived too. Signed me to keep going.

Wasn't bad accident I guess. Two cars were on the side of the road on ditch but seemed to be in quite good condition. Creepy, nevertheless.

wow..those are some really good shots you have here Sev! I'll have some up when i print my color prints and scan them.

btw, your leica's an FD mount, right? what fish-eye lens did you use for some of your previous shots?
