California Dreaming | Los Angeles


Hello there everyone, 

this post was supposed to go online after we got back from LA in July last year! Unfortunately we have both been extremely busy and therefore had absolutely no time to share that one.We hope you don’t mind reading about that trip a little than it actually happened and that you still enjoy it! So we are giving you a break from all the usual gear talk and give you a little overview about our time in LA instead. We will share some insights in what we have done, what we ate and what we think about this cozy, little town in southern california. So if you’re planning a trip to the west coast, dreaming about getting famous in hollywood or if you’re simply stuck in traffic on the 405, make sure to read on and leave your comments after the post.

Los Angeles Making-Of | Sigma 50mm 1.4 ART Review | Sony a6000 XAVC-S test

Hello everyone, 

from the title you can already guess that this post is about to get cramped. 🙂 It is not only our first post to be done in america, since we have been in LA for about a week. It is also a new making-of video from marie’s first shoot, lucky you it is a bikini shoot, but it also features a few words on the 50mm 1.4 ART lens from sigma and since that isn’t enough we also throw in a few words on doing video with the new XAVC-S codec on the a6000.  So head on to the full post to read all about it and see some pictures from the shoot itself. And don’t forget to watch the video at first:

Marie’s LA Gear

Hi there everyone this is Marie. We are currently right in the middle of our final preparations for our trip to LA starting this weekend. We will be on stay for about 4 weeks and we planned the whole thing as a mixture of vacation and self promotional work. Since we’re leaving in a few days it was about time to check our gear and we thought it might be interesting for a few of you to know what will be in our bags for the trip. In addition Sigma Germany have been kind enough to let me play with their new toys which I will test drive over there and hopefully I will be back with a lot of new pictures and Alex and me might even do a little review about the new Art-Lenses.

Making Of – Dorothea Michalk

Hi Folks, it’s us again this time with our second making-of video attempt. Marie shot the new collection from Dresden based Designer Dorothea Michalk a few weeks back and I used the opportunity to shoot a little behind the scenes footage to show you how we’re working and how much fun we usually have on set. Head over to the full post to get some more information, the gear we used (spoiler alert – Nikon all over the place) and to see some more making-of pictures.

Cape Town – a fashion shoot with the Olympus OMD EM-1 | VIDEO

Hey there fellas! As you might know we are in cape town at the very moment so we got lots of stuff to do. Since I promised some making-of stuff at the very beginning I used Marie’s first shoot with the gorgeous Lisa from Ice Models Capetown featuring the Olympus OMD EM-1, Olympus Germany was kind enough to give her for the trip,  to make a little behind the scenes video. My hands are super shaky as it seems and my grading skills are far away from perfect but this might give you an idea how it looks like when we’re shooting.

Zeiss Touit Lenses on the Sony a6000 – a review

Hello, this is marie. This time it’s on me to serve your evening reading needs. This post is about the zeiss touit lens line-up for mirrorless cameras. Zeiss Germany was kind enough to let me use the 3 currently available lenses on my trip to asia in december 2014. I just bought a a6000 so this came in very handy. Follow the link below to see what i think about them and if they made me miss my D800 and my beloved Nikon 2.8/70-200.

Hello Bangkok!

Hi there folks,

 we’re glad you made it here in the first place and we would like to welcome you on our blog. We will start right away with our first post, we have been spending 4 weeks in asia as our yearly vacation and that involved being in Bangkok for about two weeks which was also the perfect place to test our new Sony a6000 camera.  Since this is a blog mostly about photography, some gear and a few traveltipps of locations and stuff we found worthy to visit and share we will jump head-on into this post.
