I’m Mark Probst, an amateur photographer living in Vienna, Austria.
After shooting DSLRs for several years I’ve switched to shooting with
a Leica M6 for the past few months, mainly to find out what it’s like
to use a rangefinder. It turns out that I like it so much that I’m
plotting to buy an M9, since film is too bothersome for me to put up
with in the long term.
I am also a juggler and as such I hang out with and photograph other
jugglers, most of them much more able than me when it comes to
throwing and catching objects. I took these three images recently at
a small private juggling festival with a few friends. The first two
images were shot on TMax 3200, the third one, with the huge club
passing pattern, on TMax 400 pushed to 800. I exclusively use a
Voigtlaender 35mm/1.4 and do my own development. Mild post-processing
