Photographing in times of Corona

Due to Coronavirus , it was not possible to travel anymore. Therefor I startet photographing digital and with telephoto lenses. What is better to try such a combo than with birds? I really enjoyed forests around my place, Leipzig and after some months a gallery of about 35 species of birds is available on the website.  

I started with a Fujifilm X-T3 with a 100-400 but later changed to Nikon D500 with a 200-500 VR lens.

Mid 2019

Still working on the book which is more work that originally thought a had some nice trips also.
Beginning in march with a visit of Persian New Year in Mazar i Sharif / Afghanistan I also went to Istanbul again and later in summer on a trip from Germany to Turkey via bus and train.
All the film is already processed and in preparation for a release on the website.
I also tried some new developer and film - Tetenal Ultrafin T Plus with Kodak Tri-X but I am thinking on staying with Ilford DD-X and FP4 film. 

The journey from Tajikistan to China last autumn also went on the Ilford website, so please check this for deeper information.

November 2018

The year is almost over and I didn´t wrote any news this year so far. Now it is time to give you some info what I did this year so far. In spring I went to Afghanistan/Uzbekistan and Tajikistan. The trip itself was okay but I went really sick and had to return earlier. The shots on the journey were nice but when you are sick you are actually not shooting too much. I played also around with color negative film which was okay but not comparable to the qualitiy of black and white. So months were passing by and I decided to give it another try. 
In September/October I went again to Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Kyrgyzstan and then CHINA (Xinjiang). Back to the roots, equiped with a Leica M4 and Ilford Delta 400 film.
I didn´t went sick and the trip was great. Really impressing China part and also Afghanistan was perfect. 
Now I am working on a book about the last years so stay tuned!
