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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Optical Illusion: Photomontage or one single Photo?

Inductive reasoning is what enables us human beings to master new and uncertain situations by making assumptions and generalisations and thus cope with the complexities of our world. Stereotyped thinking is, after all, what structures our thinking processes and what makes them quick and efficient. But it is also a feature of the human brain ...

Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 Collection of Links: Reviews and Sample Images

As it turned out, I made a mistake in my previous article on Sigma’s 18-35mm f1.8. The lens is not supposed to be available from end of July but from beginning of July onwards. The RRP of €999 is still correct, while retailers from the UK and Poland quote their prices at €750 before it ...

Insects and Green Stuff with the DP3M

A few days ago, I got the request to upload some of the pictures I took with the Sigma DP3M in original size. As I recently only just photographed bugs and flowers, I don’t have any photos readily available to demonstrate the camera’s sharpness and the lens (middle and edge sharpness…) performance. As soon as ...

Macro, green and cars with the DP3M

Previous Saturday, the sun dared to come out for a few hours. I used the time for taking some macro shots with the DP3m. Sometimes it rained more, sometimes less. When at my wits’ end, people tend to come up with unusual ideas, at least that’s the case with me. Since I already liked the ...

More topical than ever: David Maisel’s The Lake Project and The Mining Project

While I took a break from reporting on the record-breaking flood in Austria and my home country, I stumbled across two projects by David Maisel as if determined by fate. “The Mining Project” as well as “The Lake Project” both deal with the same topic: human-induced environmental destruction. © David Maisel © David Maisel From Maisel’s favourite ...

Despite the rain I dared to venture out with the DP3m

Our dear sun took some time off, but the urge to go outside for a photo bout with my new toy was too strong. 🙂 As expected, no photogenic motives whatsoever came my way in such weather. Never mind, it was still fun. 🙂 You can view additional DP3m photos on my Pinterest account or Flickr set.

DP3 Merrill: I had to strike again! :-)

Waiting for the cash-back bank transfer, I am holding the DP3M in my hands and cheerfully taking photos. Only the weather, which currently goes haywire, spoils the party. After the hot spell of past weeks, it’s raining cats and dogs at the moment. This is why I could only take some sample pictures inside my ...
