Thank you Gary . I have fallen in love with industrial architecture . As I live in the far south of Germany , a part of Germany with very little industry , I can only find gravel pits
(very many) , concrete mixing plants and asphalt works . I some locations , you are not allowed to shoot , even if you show your images you have already taken in other places . No chance . But at the location you see in the blue serie , I was welcome . They even offered me to stay longer than their opening time . Then there is no traffic , which produces an extreme amount of fine dust .
I will prepare other ALPA images for upload .
Regards . Jürgen .
Dirk . Thanks for that link . I am sure , there are many interesting places around Dortmund , Duisburg Essen and other cities in the "Ruhrgebiet" .
They are all too far away for me . I don't like to travel that far anymore .
I usually visit an interesting location a couple of times . We all know the "hunting" for good light or weather and therefore I prefer places within a daytrip .
Shooting with an ALPA ( or other technical camera ) is a bit like shooting with a 4x5 inch camera .
It is a shooting technic "back to the roots" .
And of course , you make the same mistakes , as you did with a 4x5 camera . Haha .
But it is a challenge , a lovely challenge over and over again . Including LCC . I just love it .
For most of my ALPA images , i use a tripod . But the images from the blue serie were all shot hand held .
As the image circle of the HRDIGARON 28mm is too small for shift operation , I used the ALPA 12 TC . (very much like a HB SWC)
I also shot this brewery house with the HB 905SWC + CFV50 .
The same is valid for the following image . An old brewery house , integrated in modern city architecture .
Handheld tilt of the camera . The transform function of PSCC brought the verticals back .
Hello Dirk .
I understand . For the first series , the focus is on the asphalt plant and machinery . In the second series , the focus more on the mankind created "landscape" around the machinery . That "landscape" changes every day . That is very exciting and requires , that you visit the location perhaps several times . Best time is on a Saturday or Sunday anyway .
I don't dare to travel a lot during this corona pandemic times . So I was searching for some images I took some time ago and which I never posted before .
Here is one of them . A typical square format image . About 8mm vertical shift .
