What is a “Selfie”? A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone. Selfies are often associated with social networking. In this campaign the selfies are made with good old analogue cameras.
Lowe South Africa developed a campaign for the Cape Times newspaper last spring in which famous photographs were re-imagined as selfies.
The Cape Times in South Africa ran an award-winning print advertising campaign, with the slogan: “You can’t get any closer to the news. The Cape Times. Know all about it.”

Enough said! Sometimes a picture tells more than a thousand words. Enjoy the photos.

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.
