ABOUT MYSELF

voightlander“Art is the most beautiful deception of all. And although people try to incorporate the everyday events of life in it, we must hope that it will remain a deception lest it become a utilitarian thing, sad as a factory.”

– Claude Debussy

Hi! My name is Herbert and I’ve learned photography as a child from my father back in time when we’ve had to deal with analog film, manual focus and stuff.

The photo above shows a very young me unloading a Voigtländer Vito B camera which was my very first camera. The photo was shot by my father with a Rolleiflex medium format dual lens camera and someday I’ll provide a better digital scan of it for sure.

The Voigtländer Vito B was an awesome camera. The 50mm Color-Skopar lens was already sharp like hell and offered tons of detail and resolution to that time.

When digital photography emerged and since the introduction of mirror-less cameras, photography gained my attention again. Today, photography is my hobby and passion. I’m currently using a Sony NEX 5N with the Zeiss 24mm/f1.8 Sony A7 with the Zeiss 55mm/f1.8 lens but also some M-mount lens types with an adapter.

I hope you’ll enjoy my images and please feel free to leave some comments.
