When seasons go by...

4

How you can capture the progress of the seasons with your Action Sampler! Inspired by the flowering trees in spring, I was thinking that it would be exciting to have all four seasons in one picture!

So I taped three of the four lenses on both sides (better safe than sorry), wrote down which lens I had left open, put in the Film and marked the start position. Since I was a little inexperienced with repeatedly loading a single roll of film, and it also unhooked at the beginning, I was unable to load it in the exact same place later.

Then I set off, with a notebook under my arm, and shot through the film in a Volksgarten (public park) in Dusseldorf. For each picture, I made a note of what kind of scene I had shot on what position.
As I was rather impatient, waiting to see the outcome, I did the other three exposures within the next two or three months – because of this, I was almost sure that there would be too many potential errors for the result to be what I had intended. But then I held them in my hands!

As expected, the images have moved around a little. Next time I need to mark the starting position much more carefully. Moreover, next time I will use a slide film, because I found the colors fade a little, and I will actually attempt to shoot all four seasons respectively!

Here are the unprocessed results from the scanner:

For some, I then used my computer to push around some of the images on the top and bottom to align them:

Even if the pictures didn’t come out perfect, I’m glad that the first attempt went well. Hopefully I can show you better pictures in a year!

    Changing Seasons: Durham in Autumn

    Durham is a beautiful but tiny university city in the north of England famous for its amazing cathedral, which is one of Britain's best loved buildings. When I was studying at the university, I loved to go for crisp, autumnal walks around the cathedral and the river, kicking the leaves and basking in the golden glow of the season. The Lomography Redscale film perfectly captures the beauty of this time of year.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Finally, My Own Petzval Lens

    In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
