Madonna in Frankfurt 1987
After purchasing a simple JJC reproduktion device I just took a few frames of old negatives that I shot in 1987 when Madonna performed in Frankfurt. I remember taking these pictures was pretty difficult as none of the accredidated media were aware that we had to shoot from about a hundred meters away from the stage. I was probably the only one who brought that enormous Nikon 600mm telephoto lens. Of course, those were analogue times and I used Fuji 1600 color negative film which even had to be pushed at least one stop. The quality is accordingly bad. These photos weren’t published before.
Reproductions taken with a Sony A7r IV and FE 2.8/50 Macro lens.

Frankfurt in neural Colors
As the partial lockdown in Germany due to the coronavirus and the release of Photoshop’s new neural filter “colorize” almost coincided, I had time to try and see what the filter can do. Here is an example of a color photo of Frankfurt taken just after nightfall. The original is shown at right above, the de-colorized version below, done in Photoshop. The neural filter then created a new version of the b-w picture adding computer-generated colors. See for yourself and let me know what you think.
