Why I am returning to my terribly neglected Flickr stream and not setting up an Instagram account
How often do you hear critical voices when it comes to Flickr. The dinosaur of photo sharing has become less important over the ascent of Instagram, Snapchat and co. What once was the only and probably best photo sharing site has gone through a tough renewal and rejuvenation and might now be able to attract old friends again. This is my story why I am returning to Flickr. Read More
The way we expose film has a tremendous amount on the quality and mood of the final photograph. Of course exposure affects image brightness and contrast, but also quality and color.
Carmencita Film Lab and photographer Johnny Patience both did a wonderful exposure series to demonstrate the effect of under and overexposure to film. Please follow this link to check their series and read their recommendations. You can also find a good film guide from "Mein Film Lab" which explains a lot about the different characters of film.

He talks about his creative voice and photography as a creative outlet for himself. Read More

"The hidden treasures of San Francisco´s Little Italy"
The mouthwatering flavor of freshly baked “Foccacia” touches my nose while walking down Filbert Street, looking at the beautiful “Saints Peter & Paul” church. North Beach, San Francisco’s Little Italy, does everything to be enchanting and unobtrusive at once. The spirit of this place is present at every street corner. Well known for its culinary highlights, its small bars and restaurants and its pulsating nightlife, North Beach can be seen as a natural counterpart to the Piers of Fisherman’s Wharf and the busy streets of Chinatown.
