Upcoming wet plate talk in Graz, progress and the moon on a space zoom smartphone

In today’s video there is a little preview of my current project, info about my wet plate lecture in Graz and how smartphones change images.

For “non-photographers” some features are really great and very helpful. But then I ask myself why are these features not called by it’s name. Other functions, like changing or even modifying facial features, are almost creepy. What do you think?

In the gallery underneath are a few examples of my moon photos and the equipment. Of course you can take pictures of the moon with small cameras/lenses nowadays, but I was a bit skeptical about the pictures from smartphones back in 2021.

Here the link to my lecture about wet plate photography in Graz.
