  1. Nice B&W. I like the focus on the main character and the overall atmosphere

  3. I like this technic.

    Tense capture. With a sort of indifference to it. Wicked cool Markus!

    Like the grainy texture, it’s different for you. Half of them look freezing and the other half don’t seem to be bothered by the cold at all. Great juxtaposition!
    Just curious if you’ve ever had someone get upset over you taking their picture….

  6. I never really got bothered by anybody (well once, in Harlem a few years ago). oftentimes people would see me with a camera and stare at it, but I guess they can’t figure out what’s going on. On some rare occasion people may cover their faces or turn away and I’d oftentimes still get a shot.

    A picture containing a multitude of contrasts.

    Splendid! Works on many levels. Looks like someone put a seed pod under her bed.

    Fantastic Marcus! May I ask which camera-lens you used? My guess is the Leica

  12. jon kobeck says:

    also, looks like you used flash ?

  13. thanks! this was actually taken with the Ricoh GRD II and no flash.

    Hello Markus,

    Have you ever had the chance to use the Ricoh GR1v? If so, I was wondering what your feedback would be. Thanks, p.
