  • Zurich Christmas market and lightshow

    Last year we didn't attend many Christmas market events, however, we were told about the light festival (Illuminarium - Yuki ist da) which took place in Landesmuseum Zürich. The show itself was rather ok - music and animated story behind it  and the laser show for the finale. The surrounding though, was much more interesting.…
  • Raspberry Pi based home made light meter for analogue camera

    As soon as I bought my first medium format camera, Yashica MAT 124G I realized that there will have a problem with exposure meter. First of all, camera was released in 1970, so the light meter is not very accurate. Secondly, it uses mercury 1.35V batteries which are no longer available and only expensive and…
  • Analog Diary II

    After some time I have finally sent two new films (Kodak Portra 400 120) for developing.

Obersaxen is situated in a valley and basing on Light Pollution Map, it is one of the very few places in Switzerland where light pollution is minimal. As always, I took…

  • Tiny Planet – short guide

    As I have promised last time, today I would like to show you how to create a Tiny Planet – like picture. You will need basically two things: panorama picture and Adobe Photoshop. The best panorama, from my experience, is the one based on the 360°. The reason is quite simple – in this kind…
