The focus of my work are insects (macro-photography,particularly of moths & butterflies), landscapes and birds, mostly takenwith a mirrorless camera using modern lenses and lenses manufactured in the 1980s. A new aspect in my portfolio areimages of flying birds (videography), inspired by Xavi Bou's works that wasdisplayed in a special exhibition in the Phyletisches Museum Jena in 2020.

In 2020, I have developed a light cylinder with support of Daniel Veit (Jena). It is designed for the photography of small objects such as butterflies under perfect light conditions. We are using high quality daylight LEDs reaching maximum scores in colour rendering indices. In particular, violet and red shades are far better detectable than with conventional LEDs or tubes. Illumination is even, smooth and shadowless, and lamps can be regulated continuously. The background is neutral grey and it it reflects over the visible as well as the UV range. Objects can be shifted up and down independently of the camera and scale bar, and the camera only needs to be focussed on the scale bar once. Delivery time and price upon request.
