1. When spring had arrived in Vienna, I thought about showing the beauty of nature, landscapes, ...

    But then I realized that on a macro scale, it's incredible what is going on which you normally never realize!

    I started initially to just reverse mount my 50mm f1.4 lens (taping it to the adapter on my Lumix GH1), but then for quality reasons I bought a used 50mm f3.5 FD macro lens with a 25mm extender.

    Almost everything was filmed in my garden, apart from the first sequence which was on a small hill very close to my house - I realized that the flowers there became extremely rare and are under severe protection! Just in the middle of Vienna ...

    Fascinating - hope you enjoy my take on that!

    Music by Thomas Newman

  2. “Prie Dieu” explores a world where insects are connected to a divine power by delicate threads. No insects were hurt during the shooting, all threads were done during post-production.

  4. I combined everyday soap bubbles with exotic ferrofluid liquid to create an eerie tale, using macro lenses and time lapse techniques. Black ferrofluid and dye race through bubble structures, drawn through by the invisible forces of capillary action and magnetism.

    Time-lapse sequences: Nikon D90, Nikkor 60mm macro lens and custom built intervalometer.
    Motion-control: Arduino driven scanner platform and mirror rigs
    Score: Ableton Live

    The last moments of a Dragonfly's life captured on film. I did not hold this insect captive, it was just laying like this on my deck.
