Wedding of Anke and Bastian

The last couple of weeks I have been quite busy photographing weddings every weekend but finally I find some time to post some pictures here. This wonderful wedding took place in the beginning of June in Hamburg. Enjoy....

Wedding of Katleen and Dirk

A week ago I shot the wedding of Katleen and Dirk in Hamburg. It was a nice ceremony followed by a boat ride on the river Elbe with an old steam boat. The weather was a bit chilly but it was a lot of fun. 
Again I used the Fuji X100 along with my Nikon D3. In the end the Fuji was used for 40% of all keepers. That is very good. And I can only repeat myself but I really like the X100 for documentary work. 
In this series the last two are from the X100. Enjoy...

Street photography, Lyon France

This shots are from a visit in Lyon last year. I was teaching a tap dance workshop and at night roamed the streets for some photos. I like those because they are very graphical and abstract. I used a Ricoh GRD 3.

Wedding pics of the week #2

Last week I photographed two weddings.  I had great fun on both occasions and here are some of my favorite shots. Once I am done editing all the photos I will post more.
Again I used the Fuji X-100 along my trusty Nikon D3. As much as I like the Fuji for it's weight, size and output I would never want to miss the Nikon. It is such a reliable workhorse. Maybe it is time to look into the D4..... Enjoy!

Wedding of Tobias and Nicole

Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Tobias and Nicole in Hamburg.
I did a full reportage of 10h, covering the preps, ceremony and party. It was a great wedding and for the first time I used the Fuji X100 along with my Nikons. So how did that work.
Well from all my final final pictures around 30% were done with the Fuji. I really liked using it during the preps, in the church and at the reception. For real low light action I found it too slow. Also the Nikon D3 is just hard to beat for low ISO shots. But I really like the lightweight body and traditional camera layout. So I will use it for sure again next week when 2 more weddings come up.
I am also considering getting a X1 Pro with the 35mm 1,4. The idea of having small and unobtrusive cameras is quite intriguing. And seriously after a couple of hours the Nikon just gets real heavy on my back.....

Anyways here are a couple of photos from that wedding. Most of those are done with the x100.

Wedding pic of the week #1

Here is one of my favorites from this weekend's wedding shoot. I am still editing the rest of the photos and once I am done I will post a selection on this blog.
For the first time I also used the Fuji x100 on a job and I liked it quite a lot. I probably used it for 70% of the photos. But like I said I will post more of it later.
This shot was done with a Nikon D3.
