If you want to compose photographs with an appealing background, it’s hard to ignore the plant world. As a motif a meadow of flowers has a special appeal. And if you open the iris a bit more, the colors melt all the way into the depths of the image.
Batu Balkanli likes to work with such a bokeh range. In and around the Bosphorus metropolis of Istanbul and armed with his ZEISS lenses, he is constantly searching for the special bokeh.

Bernd K. Otto’s Carl Zeiss Kamera-Register
ZEISS has been making camera lenses of the highest quality since 1890. What is less known is that ZEISS subsidiaries were producing high-quality cameras since as early as 1902.
In 1971, Voigtländer AG, which had been acquired by ZEISS, and Zeiss Ikon AG stopped making cameras. Bernd K. Otto has documented the fascinating history of the different models of these cameras.

A documentary to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall
In the autumn of 1989, the Berlin Wall fell. David Hasselhoff’s song “Looking for Freedom” had already shot to the top of the German music charts in the spring of that year. Change was in the air. Political and personal freedom in the then divided Germany was within reach. Mark and Gabriele Hayes both share a very personal story from 1989.
Now, as documentary filmmakers, they are examining that unique moment in German-German history from an unusual perspective — by looking at the role of pop music in the final days of the Berlin Wall. In their work they value the flexibility afforded by the ZEISS Compact Zoom CZ.2 70-200mm T/2.9.
