BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT3-R

A couple of weeks ago I had an unexpected last minute shoot with a friends Bentley Continental GT3-R. I was very lucky to have a camera with me and a spare battery (Fujifilm batteries do not tend to last very long). GEAR I had the 18-135 and the 35mm with me and ended up using… Continue reading BENTLEY CONTINENTAL GT3-R

SHAPING AN IMAGE; SELECTIVE EDITING

Compare the two images below and there is no doubt that the second image is better in every way possible. The first one just doesn't have that extra punch that the second one does have. (I do realize I should have worked the shadow behind his head away. I can't stop noticing it.) It happens… Continue reading SHAPING AN IMAGE; SELECTIVE EDITING

HOW I EDIT SCANNED FILM IN LIGHTROOM

Last blogpost I made was about shooting with a Kodak Disposable camera. That post focussed on what I learned and some of the experiences I had shooting with the camera. This one will focus on editing the scanned film. The editing is done in Lightroom and as you can see in the videos below it… Continue reading HOW I EDIT SCANNED FILM IN LIGHTROOM

WHAT I LEARNED SHOOTING A DISPOSABLE CAMERA

A couple of months ago I saw an advertisement for a Kodak Funsaver disposable camera. It was priced at 11 euros and because it seemed cheap I ordered one. Except for Polaroid I never photograph with anything else than digital cameras, so I was excited to see how I would like this. Of course these… Continue reading WHAT I LEARNED SHOOTING A DISPOSABLE CAMERA

AIR TO AIR SHOOT WITH THE SU-27

There are only a handful of jet types I still wish to see flying next to me and the Sukhoi 27 has been on that list for a very long time. But last September, as a member of the Aviation Photocrew, I finally got my opportunity to photograph this big jet! Since the opportunity arose during… Continue reading AIR TO AIR SHOOT WITH THE SU-27

STAYING CREATIVE IN AIR TO AIR PHOTOGRAPHY

There's nothing so exciting in aviation photography as getting close to the planes. And no matter how much fun it is to stand between jets, it is more fun to have one on your wing. I had the luck to do air to air photo shoots for the last 10 years and even though it's… Continue reading STAYING CREATIVE IN AIR TO AIR PHOTOGRAPHY

HOW I EDIT #1

In this series I'll post videos that show how I edit my photos. In this first short clip I show some very basic editing. Depending on the interest I'll post more of these that show more of the complex edits (selective editing, retouching, etc). First one is from a recent bike shoot. https://youtu.be/Et7yxOCf2sQ   Thoughts,… Continue reading HOW I EDIT #1

BLACK APP REVIEW

In short BLACK is an iOS app that lets you put black and white filters over your photos. The filters are based on analog black and white film like apx400 or Ilford HP5. Design BLACK has a super sleek black and white design. The different filters are prominently visible on top of the screen and… Continue reading BLACK APP REVIEW

HOW TO CREATE AN INSTAGRAM AESTHETIC

For the past 5 years I have tried to gain a following on Instagram and failed miserably. It's only since about two years that my following grew above a couple of thousand. Since that first post in 2014 I have learned a lot and mostly that a beautiful feed rakes in more followers than one… Continue reading HOW TO CREATE AN INSTAGRAM AESTHETIC
