Once every summer there is the Busker Festival in Ludwigsburg. Street musicians from all over the world gather for a three day event in the beautiful park of the “Baroque in Bloom” park. It’s always fun enjoying the music, the mood, the spirit of these bands.
When Capture ONE Pro 10 came out end of last year, one new feature caught my eye: The support of the Tangent Element retouching panels. I have been looking for panels like this for quite some time, but usually they all lack support for Capture ONE. And when I read the announcement, it was just a question of time. So, a couple of weeks ago, I bought the panels.
I recently had the chance to test the new Fuji GFX 50S. German FineArtPrinter magazine organised a workshop for testing and comparing the Fuji GXF 50S and the Hasselblad X1D. Being addicted to Fuji X series for quite some time now, I was mainly interested in the GFX. And since I used Phase ONE during an Ireland trip last year, it’s time to check out what is the better medium format camera, Fuji GFX or Phase ONE?

Those of you who follow me on Facebook already saw some photos I’ve posted during the trip. Now I finally had the time and mood to go over all the photos.

With the weather changing the last few days, it is obvious now: Summer is going to leave, and autumn is knocking on the door. This means plenty of interesting opportunities lay ahead of us, just out of the door, waiting to be captured.
Here are a few black and white images of some of the spots we visited during our photo-tour through the Ruhr Region last month.
Last week I spent a couple of days in Duisburg to meet a few friends from all over the country. Beeing all photographers, we were shooting all the time and had great fun.
Recently I did a trip to the Färöer Islands together with a party of other photographers. Contrary to all my expectations we were extremely lucky with the weather. Beside the first day it was mainly dry and sunny, with only a very few rains now and then.
Yesterday I had the chance to attend a photo workshop of Arve Dinda about black and white portrait photography.
Recently I did a few studio shots of some flowers. The first few are all taken using just natural light of a cloudy day. The last two are taken with full equipment of remote controlled flash lights, softboxes and reflectors.
