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, […]

The Downside Of Dreaming

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 29, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

There are some dreams you simply do not want to remember when waking up, some dreams which make you break out in a sweat, leave you exhausted and confused. As a child I often had nightmares, fragments of which remained – and remain – in my memory. As an adult I have almost no bad […]

Is Yahoo Killing Flickr?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 26, 2015 in Internet |

I go visit Flickr every day, not just to see whether other people have shown any interest in my photographers, more to see what other photographers have posted. There are many quite exceptional photographers who use the Yahoo service, and have been using it for many years. Here I can gain inspiration as much as […]

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 […]

Things Are Looking Up

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 5, 2015 in Personal |

Another brief pause, but only because I have so much to do at the moment: college is not as easy as some believe! I have my first analogue photos back from the developer – I’m not quite so experienced to develop my own yet – and with some very good results. I’ll be posting a […]

Working On Two Fronts

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 15, 2015 in Publishing |

Every single time I promise myself I am going to cut back, going to relax, take a little more leisure time, I look back after a few days and realize that I’ve done the opposite. In theory I am relaxing right now, working on my degree course and steering clear of the Internet. But only […]

Finally, May I Present…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 14, 2015 in Internet, Publishing |

It seems almost as if it were yesterday that I first thought of writing and publishing my own works and, coupled with it, publishing monographs and short stories from other authors too. In truth it is considerably longer, and since then a lot of water has passed under the bridge. My publishing company has five […]

Selfies: Is An Apology Necessary?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 11, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I sometimes think that society hasn’t got it all together yet. In fact, I’m fairly sure that this is true, and that society – as a generalized term – will never manage to get it all together in any way, shape or form even when it comes to the most simple of things such as […]

Blogging: Installation Is The Easy Part

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 6, 2015 in Internet |

Anyone who happens to use WordPress will already know, when you want to set up your own blog on your own server, it’s easy. You unpack the package, point it through your chosen FTP client to the appropriate file and then click-through the installation URL in your browser. After that it gets a touch more […]
