α9 – Sony’s Mirrorless Canon and Nikon Dinosaur Killer

α9 – Sony’s Mirrorless Canon and Nikon Dinosaur Killer

For ages Canon’s and Nikon’s snobbish pro-DSLR argument has been that mirrorless simply isn’t yet there and likely will never be there. Well, that’s a dinosaur argument since the announcement of the Sony α9, a true challenger to Canon’s and Nikon’s long-held last bastion, the high-end pro market. The announcement of the α9 both marks […]

It’s the Camera Strap That Makes a Pro, Stupid!

It’s the Camera Strap That Makes a Pro, Stupid!

It must be true. Read it on the Internet. And I quote: “The quickest way to tell an amateur with a fancy DSLR from a pro before they even begin shooting is to watch where they hang their strap (…) Amateurs put it over their necks, like the woman in the photo: Must be the […]

Aram Pan Goes to North Korea

Aram Pan Goes to North Korea

We reported on Aram Pan in the past: an energetic young Singaporean and photographer who, accidentally, kind of fell in love with North Korea. Right, the hermit regime where no one dares to travel to. Must admit, travelled to North Korea twice and it was a unique experience. Now Aram Pan is a North Korea […]

Shy Street Photographer

Shy Street Photographer

Street photography and shyness, they don’t match, do they. Street photography requires an outgoing personality, eager to not mind what passersby think, not shying away from even confronting people. People can get upset if not aggressive when they see a stranger’s camera pointed at them. Some photographers just don’t care. Others are careful enough to […]

What Trump Means for the Media

What Trump Means for the Media

As photographers we’re all, in the broadest sense, media representatives. For this reason allow me the following thoughts. The 45th president of the United States of America isn’t a protectionist, but what can be produced back home shall be produced back home. Even before assuming office, POETUS Donald J. Trump received the support of car […]

Eight Camera Hacks in 80 Seconds

Eight Camera Hacks in 80 Seconds

Improvisation rules. There is a gadget for everything, yet often most simple and basic things can do the same job as an expensive add-on. Back in the early days I used butter to get that dreamy David Hamilton look. Just smear it around the lens, and you get a perfect dreamy erotic look. Here are […]

Kodak Renaissance

Kodak Renaissance

It once was the biggest name in photography. Kodak. Gone are the Kodak days, yet the prominent victim of the digital era celebrates a kind of comeback. Not like Polaroid, a company that as well is back from the dead, but licenses about every product imaginable, such as a Polaroid 3D printer, a Polaroid drone, […]

The Art of Seeing

John Berger, the politically committed critic, novelist, screenwriter, lyricist, dramatist, essyist, activist and, above all, photographer, John Berger is dead.

What Really Matters

What Really Matters

What’s the point of New Year anyway. Next new day felt like the day before. Celebration? A break can help to adjust goals and leave sorrows, sadness and pain behind and restart with a smile. Yet pardon my French, I reckon many are forced into these behavioral patterns, such as having to celebrate Christmas and […]
