Absurdity can be so much fun: Giuseppe Colarusso’s Improbabilità

Scarcely have I laughed as much as I did today, when I took a break from 12 to 3pm to surf the internet in order to protect my cream-cheese coloured skin. Giuseppe Colarusso‘s photos of absurd objects that will never come into existence, referred to as Improbabilità, came right on cue to put a smile ...

Kind Regards from the Adriatic Sea :-)

The time has finally come! I have been waiting forever for summer doldrums, a full account of money and the right stellar constellation to go to the Adriatic Sea. After my move to Serbia, the changeover and the whole lot of excitement that went along with it, I was in dire need of some downtime ...

Whatever crosses my DPMs’ path

After my seemingly everlasting macro-phase, everything is back to normal again. I take photos of anything that crosses my DP2M’s or DP3M’s path. At times cats, at times cars, and at other times dainties straight from the grill. 🙂 By the way, this time I left the meat slightly longer in the pot when it ...

Tip: Jon Uriarte’s The Men Under the Influence

When Jon Uriarte photographically investigated relationships and gender roles for the first time, he did so by taking photos of couples inside their houses and flats. It soon dawned on him that the photos he took couldn’t appropriately portray what he wanted to get across. He wanted to portray the confusion and desperation of men in ...

Video-Tip: René Burri tells the story underlying his most noted photos

I always imagined the person of René Burri to be like a musician who eschews spotlight and whose songs are practically known by everyone, only that no one can exactly tell the name of the artist when prompted to do so. He is without a doubt one of the best Magnum-photographers, but never really gained ...

Review: Sigma DP3 Merrill

I have been using the Sigma DP3 Merrill for a month now, enough time to conceive an opinion on the camera. Admittedly, I didn’t use it as an all-purpose camera as I did with the DP2M (1, 2), but primarily for macro shots, which is why I cannot tell exactly how well it does as ...

Image Quality Comparison: Sigma DP2 Merrill vs DP3 Merrill (15 Megapixel Pictures)

A few weeks ago, one of my readers asked me to upload some DP3M-photos in full size (15MP). Instead of just following this one request, I took some brick wall photos with the DP3M as well as with the DP2M, and additionally uploaded the most interesting photos I took so far with both cameras in ...

Aren’t good Photos worth anything anymore? (Chicago Sun-Times-Debacle)

When Chicago Sun-Times (CST) released its whole team of photo-journalists in favour of iPhone-amateur journalists at the end of May, a long overdue debate on the value of good photography has been subsequently kicked off. It doesn’t go without notice that creative work, photo-and videography amongst it, is increasingly regarded as worthless. Whether this is ...

The Super-Moon

Two weeks ago it was on everyone’s lips, the biggest full moon of the year. Hardly any website having some bearing on photography missed the chance of reporting on the so-called super-moon. Whether it is because of the excessive coverage (the bigger the hype, the more unappealing a topic gets for me) or because of ...
