The 10 most expensive photos of all times

On a daily basis, I come across photos that I like and that I would ascribe a high monetary value. I reflect upon how difficult it must have been to capture the motive, how gorgeous the photo turned out or how groundbreaking the idea behind it or the underlying message is. At the art market, ...

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 ART Hands on!

You have read correctly! I had the opportunity to test Sigma’s fast APSC fixed focal length, the 30mm f/1.4 ART. It is too early to draw any conclusions, except that the new finish actually looks as valuable as initially seen on product images and also feels accordingly. Zeiss-like, if you ask me. The surface is ...

Website recommendation: Project Apollo Archive

As a hobby-photographer, you’ll often find interesting things to read or see on the internet, but hardly ever anything that leaves you flabbergasted. I was lucky enough to experience that only just today, when I came across the Project Apollo Archive page. It may be simple and tedious to navigate (tiny thumbnails, no gallery or ...

Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4 Contemporary Link Collection: Reviews, Sample Images and Videos

It’s about time I did something for the community, especially for those who are interested in the new Sigma 17-70 “C”. It can indeed be time-consuming and tedious to google all the information on an only recently published piece of equipment on the market. So that Fotogenerell-visitors don’t need to do just that, I compiled ...

Farewell to the Adriatic Sea

It was beautiful, but way too short. So I left fairyland, I am still in Bosnia today, but tomorrow I’ll be jolted back into reality. After Dubrovnik, I took fewer pictures than I hoped I would; instead I soaked up the sun, was swimming in the sea and refuelled loads of positive energy. Let’s get ...

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 ...
