Über mich

After some interesting years in different areas of photography I made the decision to swap my equipment and… digital became analog again. Now, I’m on that point where I started almost 20 years ago. Ok, Photoshop replaced my darkroom but the rest is very “nostalgic” again….it was a very good decision!
I’m working with a Hasselblad 503cw and I only use availabel light! No auto-focus, using a light meter to find the right exposure and then changing film after 12 frames….. shootings are very unhurried and I try to keep them as simple as possible, no unnecessary stuff or gadgets, just me and the model. And the day after the shooting, I’m looking forward to this magic moment when the developped film-rolls come out of the tank.
All this may look like I’m going backwards, but it was a good decision to forward my photography. The shootings and the work with the models is very relaxed and always very funny but in the end, the results are of high quality and exactly as I want them. I encourage you .. take an analog body and shoot some rolls of b/w or color-film….it is great fun !!

Remember… Film is not dead, it just smells funny !!…cheers Rae

    I just came across your portfolio and I really like it. It's a good approach to skip the digital and work analog - at least in the first phase of photography. That should accommodate the creative and fun aspects of the work, as digital post-processing offers more than enough challenges.
    Your portfolio is already a few years old - do you still work like this?
    With kind regards

    I like your traditional approach and philosophy of the joy of "real" photography. For those of us old enough to know what you are talking about and experienced the magic of the dark room, I see what you mean.
