The first thing that came to my mind during the Superbowl XLVII blackout was that this would be the perfect time for a Duracell commercial… Oreo reacted quickly with “You can still dunk in the dark” to the Superbowl power outage.

video editing is a b*tch

bloggers post interviews on their sites all the time, but I wanted to do something different and I am planning on doing a series of video interviews instead of the same old, written questionnaire. Having done a little bit of video before, I was confident I could pull it off with the iphone’s HD video, […]


photography and commitment

Markus Hartel Fotograf

commitment looks like a shitty word to begin with… to get the kerning right… anyways, the other day I was watching Jay Maisel’s slide show at the NYC photo salon and he talked about commitment, while showing a bunch of photos of people wearing make-up of their favorite baseball team (I had to look up […]

Release date: To be announced. “A friend of mine once said “You walk around the streets as if you belong here” and that’s what I do… I belong to the streets and the streets belong to me, and no one can take that away from me. “ Related Posts:HTC One unboxingMary PoppinsAlternate Superbowl blackout adsApple […]

I do not like the human race

“I don’t like their heads. I don’t like their faces. I don’t like their feet. I don’t like their conversations. I don’t like their hairdos. I don’t like their automobiles. I don’t like their dogs or their cats or their roses.” Charles Bukowski Related Posts:Alternate Superbowl blackout adsMerry X-Masvideo editing is a b*tchphotography and commitmentfourreel.tv […]

Fuji X-100 mini tiny review

hartel black and white street photography

met a friend last night and checked out his Fuji X100. sweet, I like it. I love the electronic viewfinder overlay… I really like this camera but switching to manual focus, oh my, I had to turn the focusing ring like a midget bus driver trying to get around Columbus Circle. the Lumix LX-5 does […]


75 Degrees of Intimacy

black-and-white street photography by Markus Hartel, New York City

One doesn’t go up to strange men, women, children, elephants or giraffes and say, “Look this way please. Laugh –cry– show some emotion or go to sleep under a funeral canopy.” From Naked City, Weegee “f8 and be there”, the great Arthur Fellig, better known as Weegee, used to say, which quickly became a popular […]


Coney Island Boardwalk 09

Many people asked me about a street photography forum… I think fora are too tedious to maintain, too time-consuming to administer and maybe the streetphoto watercooler microblog may be the right thing to do… feel free to sign up, get a gravatar and fire away with questions, links, your photographs, or whatever is on your […]


the influence of the streets

hartel black and white street photography

getting a good street shot might be the hardest thing in photography, ever. You don’t get paid for it, which doesn’t matter, but it’s hard work combing the streets for the right moment. There are no models that can be directed, no artficial light that can be controlled. You can’t burn rolls and rolls of […]


CanoNikon

street photography by Markus Hartel, New York City

As mentioned before, I was never satisfied with zone focusing on modern (EOS) autofocus lenses, since the distance scale is very inaccurate and makes street shooting without autofocus -which has its own challenges- pretty much hit-and-miss. Since the EOS system has a very short lens register, there are many 3rd party adapters for EOS cameras […]
