Welcome to my collection of sky photography!

 

Over the years, I've taken many photographies of the sky in its different shapes, light and colors. A selected set of shots can be viewed on the following pages. Most of the pictures were taken either during sunset or sunrise, depending on the particular motif and light. All pictures displayed on this web site were taken over the course of three consecutive years in the vicinity of Frankfurt, Germany, regardless of season.

All the photos were taken on ordinary color negative film (35mm, mostly ISO 400, but depending on the light and other aspects, I've occasionally used more sensitive material such as ISO 800 and even ISO 1600 as well) and professionally processed using a high-quality lab. The images were digitized by using a negative scanner. During this process, great care and effort were taken to preserve minute details (including any minor flaws a picture might possess). Colors were retained as much as technically possible to preserve the mood and thus the characters of the individual images. Due to the nature of transfer process, tiny derivation in color from the original are posssible, thus an actual print might look different from the image displayed on this website.

 
 

All prints are available for purchase. Availbility of prints is restricted to any destination on this planet :-), postage may vary according to shipping requirements and size. As these are ordinary 35mm negatives, the following standard print sizes are available: 4x6, 5x7 and 8x12 (all sizes in inch; both glossy and matt finishes are possible). Other, non-standard sizes (such as posters) are available on request only.

As the actual prices of the prints depend on size and shipping, please contact me for details (when dealing with huge print sizes, please bear in mind that due to the enlargement process, images can get very grainy especially if the negative has a high ISO rating such as 1600). Please include the names / IDs of the pictures in your order as well as sizes and the numbers of copies you would like to order.

In addition to these non-commissioned more artistic projects like this web site, I do contract work as well. Needless to say, I specialize on nature photography, but I am into people projects too (especially black and white portrait photography). In addition to ordinary, state-of the art digitial work including any post-processing of the shots, I also foucs on the more traditional approach of analogue film-based photography (as the shots on this web site were done). I am flexible on the location of the work and my rates are top-notch. If you're interested, please contact me with the details of the project you have in mind.

hope you enjoy the images as much as I did taking them and preparing; never mind maintaining this web site.
