Axel Hollmann – Benzin. Ein Fall für Julia Wagner

Hier habe ich bereits den zweiten Roman von Axel Hollmann, vor fast drei Jahren schrieb ich an dieser Stelle über Rissiges Eis. Mit Benzin hatte ich nun den ersten Band der Reihe um die Journalistin Julia Wagner vor meinen Augen. Auch Rissiges Eis hatte eine weibliche Heldin, eine gewisse Vorliebe des Autors scheint sich abzuzeichnen. […]

Birth of Coke

Besides new real life scenes, I also followed up on the Zero Art, where I put the bottle, the cow and the glass into art (which needs not to be a painting). I’ll have those in this series as well.

The one and only image at the time was The Davinci Coke, inspired by Dan Browns novel and the movie. Well, there was a second one as depicted on the first post of the series: Ceci n’est pa une coke, inspired by René Magritte’s famous painting.


The final photo of my original Daily Zero series. Fittingly named Acocalypse.

Zero Gravity

I always wanted to do some magic. So here comes a hoverying bottle to play. No photo manipulation, just a matter of perspective. Unfortunately, I did not take a photo of the setting to reveal the tricky part.

And I tried different approaches to reach this effect. Here comes the first take on it, where I still thought I would erase the stand later on using a graphics software. Not so cool. But the clamp played an important part in the final version.
