The Calendar Files … 2014 … Berlin

Well, just to recap … Some time ago a dis­cus­sion was going on, what to do with your favor­ite images you made over the year and how to appre­ci­ate them. All agreed, that the final appre­ci­ation can be giv­en by print­ing your images — some­thing most pho­to­graph­ers in the age of post­ing online tril­lions of…… Con­tin­ue read­ing The Cal­en­dar Files … 2014 … Berlin

A Contax 167MT and a Carl Zeiss Distagon 2.8/28mm in Porto

This time in Porto … some­thing went ter­ribly wrong. Get­ting back my films from the lab, they wrote that some images were under­ex­posed. See­ing the res­ults, around 1/3rd of the frames were near black and I’m still guess­ing what happened. The Con­tax 167MT with its Carl Zeiss Dis­tagon 2.8/28mm worked quite well with the Kodak…… Con­tin­ue read­ing A Con­tax 167MT and a Carl Zeiss Dis­tagon 2.8/28mm in Porto

Porst Pocketpak EL

It was dec­ades ago in my life when I bought this cam­era in my con­stant strive for becom­ing a bet­ter pho­to­graph­er — LOL. It was some­where between 1970 and 1975 when I thought, using my then cam­era, an Agfa Optima 200 Sensor, was not good enough for me and I strongly needed an “upgrade” to…… Con­tin­ue read­ing Porst Pock­et­pak EL
