One thought on “Fearful Visions Workshop, Berlin, Germany

  1. – George: oh yeah, but for the moment she relaly likes being photographed, so all is well Yeah, focussing is damn hard ain’t it? The first two days I relaly had problems, but it gets slightly better. Definitely takes a lot of practicelew: ben en fait, quand tu arrives a bien tout controler, ca sort des images avec un rendu vraiment special. Par exemple celle-ci, le rendu est pratiquement le meme qu’avec mon vieux hasselblad et du film NB. Pas mal pour un petit appareil qui tient dans une poche ben: ce qui est bien avec les montures M, c’est que tu peux trouver des vieux objos pas trop cher (tout est relatif, oui). Par exemple des vieux voigtlander, contax, nikon, ou meme certains vieux leica. Toi qui fais du film, tu pourrais facilement trouver un vieux M3 ou M6 pour pas trop cher.. Mais bon, t’as deja le Mam7 qui est deja bien compact, alors
