Alina is a more quite and slightly intoverted person. Nevertheless, I like her very much. Her sedate manner fits my kind of photograohy just perfectly. Furthermore, she is very patient, relaxed and always tries to get the most out of a shot.
Initally we planned an outdoor shooting, but the bad weather forecast made us change your minds and we booked a small one room appartment. We started at the early afternoon, took a few shots, grapped some food and continued shooting until the sun was gone.
All images were taken either with a Noctilux-M 1:0.95/50, or 1:1.25/75 on a Leica SL camera.

    Your Model is really awesome! Love what you created here!ReplyCancel

    Very, very good set of photos. Quiet and introverted?? Certainly does not give that impression. Her mimicry might not change but her body language is incredible. Impressive.ReplyCancel

    Your work is always a very big inspiration for me. The light, the model and location choice, your perspectives and the general mood are just phantastic. Keep up with your great work.

    Beautiful, so simple, therefore, so beautiful…

Laughing is definetly one of Jil’s favorite things to do. And so it have been some very pleasant hours we spent together last Sunday in the nearby hills.
After I picked her up from the neighboring city, we’ve beed heading east until we reached a nice and remote place. Here we enjoyed the gorgeous weather, a big juicy watermelon, cool drinks from the fridge and a great time while taking the one or the other picture.
The day before I repaired the van’s steering mechanism and exchanged some major parts of it. So I was slightly concerned that we don’t get far. But everything went smoothly and so over all it was just a perfect day.
All images were taken with a Leica SL together with a Summilux-M 1:1.4/35, a Noctilux-M 1:0.95/50 and 1:1.25/75.

    Lovely Jill!
    I like espacially the photos up from number 43 in her blue flowery dress.
    Very beautiful old-fashioned romantic outfit!
    I enjoy it!ReplyCancel

Last November I made one of my long lasting dreams come true and purchased a VW T2 Westfalia Camper Van from 1976. Because my new little friend spent 40 years of his live in sunny California, the body was in a quite good condition with little rust, but the interior was pretty shabby. It took me half a year to exchange the floor, refurbish the furniture, get new curtains, exchange the seat covers, built a new table, lay 40m of new cable, replace the insulation, install a second battery, a charger, a fridge, … and finish all the thousands of little repairs which needed to be done in my view.
Just a few days after I finished the interior, Sonya, one of my favorite models, visited me and we took a short joyride. I was quite happy that we got such a great weather. The first time she was at my place we had a rainy day and stayed in my studio. This time we fully enjoyed a warm and sunny day on the road and in the countryside.
Sonya is a quite petite, but none fragile girl with full of enthusiasm and passion for her work. I adore her open-hearted, lively and curious nature as well as her introverted moments which gave some of my pictures the peace and silence I love so much.
All images were taken with a Leica SL together with a Noctilux-M 1:0.95/50 and 1:1.25/75.

    Danke fürs Zeigen. Eine klasse Kombination aus Retrobus und dem hübschen Model. Und fotografisch sehr schön umgesetzt.

    Das könnte ich mir auch gut im Toskana-Style und an Sommerabenden vorstellen. Ich freue mich schon auf (hoffentlich) weitere Sets 🙂

It was one of these typical German days, cold, windy and wet, when Sonya and I met at my place. So we decided to stay inside and do some shots together in my little studio. And I really don’t regret this decision. I absolutely love our results. 🙂
Besides a cheerful, funny and highly motivated model, I had a bed, two lights, some fog and a Leica SL together with a Noctilux-M 1:0.95/50 available for this shooting.
Hope you enjoy this picture series as much as I do.

    A wonderful set with beautiful Sonya who I also recently had the pleasure of working with. I’ve previously with another model worked with these kind of shadow effects and I think you created some exceptional images. Congratulations to you both.ReplyCancel

    Stunnning seductiveReplyCancel

The shooting with Evelina was actually much more talking than picture taking 🙂 We met at my place on a Monday afternoon, had some coffee and tea, and a long and very enjoyable chat about almost everything under the sun.
Long after dusk, we finally decided to take some shots. We set up two tungsten lights and played around with different perspective, mirrors, jalousies and backlights. It was a fun evening. Evelina is a really nice model, easy going and with a lot of enthusiasm.
All shots were taken either with a Leica SL + Leica M 0.95/50 or a Sony alpha 7 II + Canon 1.2/85
