So I’m currently spending much more time with the shovel than with my camera.. so I’m posting this quick’n'dirty..

cheers for viewing!

  1. What a great post. I wish that I could have had time to join your workshop.
    The door-framed-Simon-Pic is my favorite.

    Greetings Pascal

  5. Not even halfway through I told myself: “simply stunning work”, and it just kept getting better! Cheers Severin for posting!

  6. Hey!

    I love your photos!

    Random question, but you pointed out several times that the weather was not good for a couple of days in during this workshop… how do you keep your camera equipment safe and dry enough when the weather isn’t good? I’m always too afraid to bring mine out and yet, I think your shots prove there are great images to be captured in the rain.

  12. after watching this post i just can think of one thing… the current umbrellas really needs a redesign!

  13. Haven’t laughed so hard in a while like I did at the Chris chimping photo, man that’s just hilarious!

    Great stuff as always.

  14. many cool frames here, I love esp. these witty / “conceptual” pictures like breasts for 11 euro, sisco framing a guy, the old man in a mirror, Felix like young wine in the 1st picture with glasses; but I just LOVE your portraits! Felix in the 2nd picture: his expression is a definitely “decisive moment” of his emotions then; the “cheer up” pic composition of emotions, the Black guys, Anna and her smile, and – my favourite this time: 31357. What a personality! And yes, the noctilux tones and detail is great. But I like the “Eiffel Tower” as much. Nice entry :)

  15. Great Blog! – got to attend one of the SIS seminars one day.

    Comment by Joel — August 6, 2011 @ 10:22 pm
  16. Great to see how everything actually turned out.
    And thanks again for the useful hints, I really learned a lot in these two days.

  17. Niiice!
    I think we’ve been to Berlin during the same days, I remember that couple of rainy and cold days, what a coincidence! We also visited the same places, the Camera Work gallery, the Helmut Newton exhibit. Have you been to C/O Berlin? That’s the place I liked the most! I was expecting Simonsawlight to get in touch with me, we’ve been exchanging a few messages on the RFF, but eventually he didn’t and I didn’t as well, so I missed an occasion to meet you. Too bad, I would have loved to meet some fellow leica lover street photographers ;)
    Anyway, Berlin is such an inspiring city! I came back home with 10 rolls. I’m now in the process of post processing the photos. I already published some on my photo blog, but will be publishing more soon. Have a look if you’re interested and let me know what you think about them :)

  18. so many shots to see! what an adventure!

  19. Hey Sev,

    it is amazing to see how you were at the same place as we were, having the same amount of time, the same subjects and same conditions and you still bring so much better frames… Sad that the Mamiya broke down, I like the frames with that one a lot and would have loved to see some more.

    Fantastic work. Again.

    Thanks for sharing.

  21. Hey Severin,

    Hab schon ganz gespannt auf diesen Eintrag gewartet.
    Schöne und interessante Bilder, wie immer, diesmal ganz besonders interessant, weil ich bei vielen Bildern sozusagen dabei war.

    PS: Du schuldest mir noch eine Rolle Tri-X ;)

  22. Once again a great post. I am really intereseted about your scanning-workflow of all that analog material. It takes me 1h to get one roll into digital, plus one more for post-processing and I guess a guess you habe some rolls to process… Hats off!! Greetiongs. Volker.

  25. Your photos are the best. The only thing that could even rival them in coolness is the Grillrunner.

  34. I didn’t comment before but… oh, those crisp medium format shots are the best as usual.
    Severin, I sincerely like your work very much.
    You have a paid coffee whenever we meet :-)

  35. I’m having a boring monday morning at work so I decided to check if there was new blog entry. Well, there wasn’t but I still spent 45 mins reading this entry again.

    I hope my boss doesn’t read this. :D

  36. Hey Severin,

    As always, I’m pretty amazed by your photos and I believe that I learn more each time, when it comes about composition in street photography.
    As far as the developing process goes, I’d love to know which chemicals you use, at least for the developer (film). I’d be glad!

    Really looking forward for your next upload, it’s really due now.

  37. You have a great eye for composition and details, splendid work !

    Comment by maddoc2003jp — September 27, 2011 @ 2:59 pm
  38. Hey, Greetings from Mumbai. I loved your photographs, great eye and love the details. I esp. liked the portraits – great mood and character.

    I also shoot streets in Mumbai and it would be great to have your feedback.

    Comment by Mayank — October 2, 2011 @ 11:17 am
  39. So, did you come away thinking that the M9-P is something to own? Or even the M9? I’m assuming you shoot with a film M? What is your first choice lens for the camera?
