My name is Uwe Reichmann, born in Leverkusen, now i live in Switzerland.
I work in the world of Telecommunication.
In Summer 1996 i started to photograph.
At first i borrowed a Canon compact camera from my parents.
And this one i used till i bought my first own camera in march 1997 the Yashica T5.
This camera was since then always
at my side,
but at the end of my time at the army i sold "her" to a fellow-soldier.
In December 1997 I buyed the Canon EOS 5, a very good camera which i could truly recommend.
But after a while my claim grewed,
wanted something different,
i could "satisfy" this claim with the NIKON F5.
Both cameras have their pros and cons, but i wont name them now.
The Telelenses are my favourite lenses. My absolute Favourite was the AFS-Nikkor 80-200mm / 1:2,8D-ED,
Highspeed at highquality optical performance.
But to recommend too as a "always
service", is the AF-Nikkor 28-105mm / 1:3,5-4,5.
A good wide angle zoom with light tele focal length.
It got a special Macro mode in the 50-105mm focal lenght and its offers to a scale till 1:2.
The 28-105mm is a real good "wool-milk-pig" ;-)
Since a time I occupy myself with the Medium-Format.
A friend told me once: "If you once startet with the medium format, you´ll never like your 35mm Pictures...." unfortunately, she was right... !! ( it will become expensive...!)
I exposed a few Photos with the 645 pro TL and i was really surprised about the Quality of this format, but this effect didn´t come across in the 11th. Gallery... not really...
In the end of 2000 I´ve bought another Mamiya, the Mamiya RZ 67 - The more bigger format and quality !
FAQ: What do you think about digital photography !?
I don´t like the digital
photography at this
time. If you going to post something very fast into the internet,there
nothing else wich is better,
but if you going to order a poster from your super shot, you got a real "BIG" problem, the low resolution of those pictures...
But this will change during the next years and so i will wait till i get more performance and quality for my money ! (LOL, that was my opinion in 2004)
but now we go ahead:
I prefer to photograph landscape
scenerys and citys at night, and i like Portraits too,
and when i´ve overtaken some approvals, a Portrait gallery will be implemented...
When i´m photographing Portraits,
prefer the available light, a flash isn´t good at all...
...he might "flash" away some nice moods...
I´ve already photographed some marriages, to the full satisfaction of my customers.
are: photographing, riding my bike, meeting friends, cooking and watching movies.

With best regards,
to my personal Pictures
