About me

I just want to state, that none of my uploaded photos will undergo any digital enhancement. I have to refurbish a lot of pictures all the time. I don't want to advertise anything with this gallery, it is just for pleasure. And my pleasure is longer lasting, when I have to do painstaking darkroom work and spend some time on taking the right slides that have their expressiveness without PS extravaganza... If however I upload 2D-Graphic (but only then), it might incorporate digital processing of some kind, with either analog drawings, pictures or calligraphy...

All the time people have been telling me, that I would get faster results with a diggi-cam, whatever... these days, everything has to be faster. I'd like to be patient for that matter!

Last but not least. I always appreciate sophisticated comments, regardless if praise or criticism. The abundant and arbitrary nonsense some people tend to leave throughout fc, does not contribute to any evolution of our skills, in my opinion. At times I feel like leaving this place because of all the shallownes that does exist around here. But then I explore someones profile and am a happy person because of all the beauty that I find.

Meanwhile I'm studying visual-communication/graphic design... now here, soon in Zurich, CH

All analog, specs are meaningless. the pictures speak. period.

||| Due to obligations in real life I will put this on a halt. feel free to write any thougths, but I will likely not write back too soon...thanks |||

    Hi Marcial
    Thanks for that nice comment on my picture; chuck
    but i actual really love my chuck taylors and also love wearing them. I really liked reading your profile its nice to discover people who still use the traditional methods. I also concur with your opinion on leaving good, opinionated and helpful comments or the lack thereof and i also know how it feels to log in and find you've had hundreds of clicks and zero comments, i find it annoying..(maybe i'll comment on my thats rather sad). Any way i also liked your photos they are really interesting and i liked them alot and would enjoy seeing more.
    Take care, Liz

    Herzlichen Dank für Deinen Kommentar zu "Silberstreif am Horizont". Es ist bei Dir genau so angekommen wie ich es gewollt habe! Freut mich sehr. Und ja, ich habe die Tonwertkurve verdreht um den farbigen Kontrast so herzustellen.
    Bei Dir finde ich toll, das Du nichts bearbeitest. Viele Aufnahmen von Dir bekommen so den Touch des Unbestechlichen. Mutig!

    Hallo Marcial,
    besten Dank für Deine Anmerkung zu meinem Bild:
    so rot ............................................
    so rot ............................................

    Die Farben haben sich an diesem Abend genau so rot präsentiert.
    Schöne Bilder die Du in der FC präsentierst.

    When I am back in Germany, one big topic on my to-do-list is to reactivate my darkroom!
    I understand your intention, your imagination and I agree with you.
    You have an interesting portfolio in here, worthy to look at.

    Kind regards

    ich danke dir. Schön so etwas zu hören : )

    p/s Interesante Bilder machst Du!
    Besonders gut hat mir gefallen - "Unendlichkeit" - "deeply, fervently, strongly desire" würde ich dazu sagen:)

    Tja, ebenfalls aus der Hüfte geschossen und schon Jahre alt - als ich noch jung war - mit 14 aufgenommen, mit meiner ersten Kamera - über das Dach eines geparkten Wagens hinweg - das einzige Mal, dass ich groß war, davor und danach gelang es mir nie wieder.
