About me

Every picture has a story behind...

Hi, nice to be here, I'm Marcus...

When I was 5 years old I was sometimes allowed to take a few pictures with my father's SLR camera. He used color slide films, so we had "cinema" events after each vacation - it belonged together somehow. So I also used slide films when I got my own SLR (a Nikon FG-20 in 1987). That's why I occasionally show scans of color slides from my archive also, but I had to learn that not all slides can be scanned equally well and that noise reduction with contrast maintenance is a new challenge every time.

A few years ago I ventured into the digital world with the purchase of a Canon EOS 700D and an EOS R later and I really enjoy taking pictures in RAW, trying new things and doing some basic post-processing.

And... Luckily, no post-processing is able to replace our own instincts when shooting ...

    Nice work,Thorny and keep on doing it. I'm still doing a lot of work converting to digital old positives, especially  Velvia  and  Provia, with very satisfactory results very much helped for it by the excellent film scanner NIKON COOLSCAN  9000. The  EPSON  4900 is also very good. I think  it's a pity to have so many old slides and keep them...."inactive"!
