Markus Hartel book shelf

Analog video glitch

video glitch Markus Hartel

I’ve always liked the work of David Carson… for example: The End of Print: The Grafik Design of David Carson Many of the pieces from the 90ies have a wonderful analog lo-fi quality to them that I always adored. Quite ironic that I have adapted to a digital workflow for most things. Recently, I came […]

I always advocate cloud storage for off-site media and photography storage, and my libraries have grown so much over the years that single hard drives in my desktop don’t cut it anymore. My old Drobo’s were too slow and I had an Apple XServe file server sitting around, and while it seems to be the […]

A dog day…

It was a dog day… in a good way! Lots of pooches out in the streets, while walking & shooting around the city with a Leica student for a whole day. All in all a very rewarding experience. Related Posts:Seen on 8th Ave.Seen on 7th Ave.Seen on 5th Ave.Seen in NYC Fashion DistrictSeen in SoHo

Less gear, more skills

L1000632

I read a post today on Mail Chimp’s blog and how they successfully use the php programming language for their rapidly growing e-mail enterprise, and the comments quickly got out of hand, bashing their tools of choice to the tune of “this language is better than…” “you should…” and to top it all off, someone […]


Moto X interactive print ad

_MG_8929

I came across this interactive Moto X print ad in this month’s Wired magazine… there seems to be a light panel behind the phone’s image and individual colors can be turned on by pressing the correlating colored buttons at the bottom. very cool! craziness! This thing is powered by 4 CR2025 batteries, has a multi-color […]


Multi Tasking

Markus Hartel street photography, New York City

The Leica M240 is back from the shop and as good as new – new rangefinder, new top plate… Despite the cameras heft, I love the responsiveness, the fast shutter and high ISO quality compared to the M9P I have been using for the past few weeks. The M240′s DNGs convert nicely to black-and-white and […]

New York Lottery

color street photography by Markus Hartel, New York City

I really like the M9P that I received from Leica on loan, while the M 240 is in the shop for a rangefinder replacement… The M9P’s chrome finish feels indestructable and is very nice -just like the classic Leicas-, and the colors have that richness that only a CCD sensor can produce, the camera also […]
