Photography: Filling Shelves With New Cameras

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 31, 2015 in Photography |

The title of this post is, as anyone can tell my glancing through the images which follow, completely wrong. The cameras are all new to me, but they are far from new. None of them are digital, none of them can be used as a telephone and you need fairly big pockets to store them […]

Copyright: Who Owns That Building Right There?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 2, 2015 in Photography |

Copyright is, at the best of times, a complicated subject fraught with problems for the layperson and pitfalls for both copyright owners and those who wish to use an image, an extract, an item for a specific purpose. In theory everyone knows that a photograph, taking just one example, is copyrighted, even if they do […]

My Internet Superpower Should Be…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 18, 2015 in Photography |

The first thing I thought when I saw this photograph on Flickr’s Explored today was: I wish I had taken this. I wish I was the person standing behind the camera who was able to capture this single image, this moment in time forever. For me, as a very inexperienced photographer, it has everything that […]

Bargaining Powers

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 9, 2015 in Photography |

Sometimes you can have all the luck in the world, sometimes it is a clear case of bargaining against the odds to get what you want for the best possible price. In my case, over the last few weeks, it has been a bit of both, and my photograph today shows the results: two new […]

Selfies: Blow Me A Kiss

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 3, 2015 in Photography |

I’m not so sure that it is a generational thing, more something everyone goes through at some time in their life, like playing in mud or eating worms. You stand in front of a mirror and pull a few faces, check your hair, turn and check your ass. Well, that is the way that it […]

Selfies: The Camera Is Dead, Long Live…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 30, 2015 in Photography |

In theory everyone who takes a self-shot, a selfie, uses a smart phone. That is what the manufacturers want us to believe, and that is what we mostly see out on the streets, in front of tourist sites and near to major catastrophes, fires and traffic accidents. The figures show that camera sales are dropping, […]

Analogue Photography: On The Streets

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 9, 2015 in Photography |

I was pleasantly surprised that this image, of two homeless men reading in the Lloyd Passage in Bremen, worked. One of the things that has always bothered me about taking photographs is the noise a shutter makes. I always have the impression that it is very loud, perhaps simply because I am right next to […]

Analogue Photography: The First Attempts

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 8, 2015 in Photography |

A few days ago I mentioned that my first attempts at analogue photography have come back from the developer, and promised that I would post a few of the results here. As an absolute beginner, and teaching myself by ‘doing’ rather than just by reading, it is something of an eye-opener to see what really […]

Breaking The Silence

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 5, 2015 in Photography, Publishing |

It’s hard to believe that someone is working their butt off when you see no results. However, as we all know, many things cannot come into being if those in the background, the unseen people, do not do their work, and so it is here at the moment. In between writing papers and sorting through […]

Seen Through The Eyes Of Someone Else

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 28, 2015 in Photography |

The other day I wrote a short post on a photograph I had taken; a book with glasses and a pipe. I wrote that it was a quick shot – six or so images to find the best one overall – and hardly planned. All I was doing was experimenting with light, since I am […]
