I got two books about portraiture for my birthday (both are really nice, btw). Apperently, if you want to make it on the cover with your photography, you have to ask your model into or at least close to the sea and make her hold something odd in her hands. I will try to remember and apply this neat trick on my next occasion. Any volunteer models out there?
Results from a short photowalk to the Europaplatz in Bern. Here, a tram line, a bus line and two commuting train lines cross. People get off and on public transport vehicles. There’s a supermarket, a pharmacy, some fast food places, and everything is covered by the bridge of a highway. There is also a cultural and religious centre, with jewish, hindu, buddhism centres, and a mosque. A place where people meet.
All but one photos taken with a Fujifilm X-Pro 2.

A night and a day on the streets in Bern with the Fuji X100
This weekend I had the opportunity to take the Fuxi X100 out on a photo safari in Bern. Some of the phots were taken at night (after 11 pm) in the station, some on a very warm and sunny afternoon in Bern. I was positively surprised that a relatively large fraction of the shots were quite usable, at least from the technical point of view (sharpness, noise,…). Speaking of noise: the Fuxi X100 virtually has no visible noise up to ISO 3200. I was again amazed by its low light performance.
