Vienna Café

Several years ago I went to Vienna and photograph the Christmas market, and whilst there I asked a friend to take me to a traditional Viennese coffee house. She said she thought there was only one left, so off we went. I sat there and soaked up the glorious ambiance of the scene, and managed to get a couple of snatched shots of the patrons. As part of my Fine Art series I have just reprocessed one of the negative scans from that visit. This would have been shot on probably Tri-X at 400iso and hand held. I forget the camera, but I think it was a Canon Eos1 and the lens was probably a 85mm f1.8, but I am afraid that (unlike these days of digital exif files) the exact details are lost in the annals of time. Post-processing was in Aperture 3. You can of course (and forgive the plug) buy a signed copy of the image on my gallery. – and use the ART25 promo code to get 25% off at the checkout making prints from around £37.50!


About Gerry Walden

I am a stock photographer with far more years of experience than I would care to mention. Located in Southampton (UK) I am sandwiched between two national parks and my home town is a major seaport. I shoot mostly people related images, and travel when I can. I am resident photographer at a major concert venue in the town which means I get to shoot a variety of musicians.

      Thanks for your very kind comment. I must confess that I am a little at a loss as to why anyone would want to start film photography these days but if I can answer any questions then please feel free to ask.
