Ornithologie (Naturhistorische Sammlungen)

325-03 325-04 325-07 325-09Once in the museum, even animals turn into objects. Should you like to read about the role of photography in establishing objectivity here is book I can recommend: Lorraine Daston and Peter Galison, Objectivity.

      Thank you! All pictures were taken with TMax 400 Film (I had to use a tripod in the museum). I over-exposed the bright background by 1,5 to 2 stops and counter-checked on the bird to make sure it would not be underexposed by much more than 2 steps. I do not own a spot meter, so there is always a bit guessing involved. Later, I have the films developed with TMax developer and the scan them, usually just removing dust and the blur that comes with the scanning process. I almost never change brightness, contrast, and only crop the image very occasionally. I hope this answers your question… Cheers, Tobias
