2017-05-06 Travel: Lanzarote Miniature Monument Valley

On May 5th we departed from Munich to meet with Stefan Gesell and a group of fellow photographers for a model sharing event to take fashon, erotic and nude images of 5 beautiful and talented ladies on the beautiful island of Lanzarote. We were based on the southeastern coast of the island in a small village called Arrieta.

The first session took place on May 6th at a location we dubbed the Miniature Monument Valley. It is to the left and right of the road from Guatiza to Teguise.

Here are some photos i took this afternoon, the first one of each girl is postprocessed and the others are ooc previews, some of them taken with an art filter. All were shot with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 II and the 12-40/2.8 lens.

2013-11-02: A bad case of GAS or "Bigger is better"

You may ask yourself why someone using a mFT camera is writing about GAS and FF sensors. Well, today we met at Stefan's studio for a workshop on how to create realistic scars. It was a bit late for Halloween but we had lots of fun and Nadja (Spiegellicht) did a great job teaching. During lunch one of the participating photographers asked for advice regarding an affordable FF camera because he thought his own APS-C model wasn't good enough anymore and he wanted a bigger sensor but had limited budget. I was a bit puzzled because i simply adore his pictures and never assumed he was feeling his gear was not producing good enough quality.

2012-02-11 The OM-D E-M5 Sensor Mystery

Last Friday i had the chance to test my latest object of photographic desire: an Olympus OM-D E-M5. I honestly admitt that i was actually less interested in taking pictures than in finding out what the supposedly new sensor can achieve in terms of high ISO and DR, whether it is on par with or better as the E-P3 … AND last but not least who designed it and who builds it.

On Friday evening i actually considered dissassembling the camera, when my friend Catherine called me. She happens to be a kind of priestress of an ancient and forgotten cult and lives south of Munich in the middle of a beautiful area with lots of forrest, hills and small lakes. Catherine is really something special, not only because at 55 she looks even better than Madonna but also because she has the uncanny ability to learn things by simply touching them (works with human hands too) and she owns a crystal ball that – according to her – sometimes allows her to see the future as well as the present and the past.
