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

TURNING A DECADE WORTH OF PHOTOS INTO A BOOK – PART II

Two weeks ago I started working on a book project about my aviation photos. You can catch up by reading the blogpost I wrote earlier. I don't want this book to be just a random collection of photos I made over the years. It doesn't necessarily have to tell a story either, but there needs… Continue reading TURNING A DECADE WORTH OF PHOTOS INTO A BOOK – PART II

HOW DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH A LOCKDOWN?

How do I photograph a lockdown? I asked myself that question when the lockdown started here in Belgium around the 15th of March. I knew from the beginning that I wouldn't be able to shoot any documentary work in hospitals or anything. So I thought I'd end up with a series about emptiness. You know,… Continue reading HOW DO YOU PHOTOGRAPH A LOCKDOWN?

TURNING A DECADE WORTH OF PHOTOS INTO A BOOK – PART I

With Corona turning 2020 into the year of cancellations, I found it to be a good time to look back at my photo work. I already edit some old photos from travels, but now I also took the time to go through 13 years worth of aviation photos and a decade worth of air to… Continue reading TURNING A DECADE WORTH OF PHOTOS INTO A BOOK – PART I

TESTING THE NEW GOPRO SETUP

I recently bought a chest strap for my GoPro and tested it a couple of weeks ago while taking some pictures at a local botanical garden. I was finishing a roll on a Kodak disposable camera and also shot some polaroids on the SX-70. I'll make a full blogpost about the disposable soon, but I… Continue reading TESTING THE NEW GOPRO SETUP

MAKING AIR TO AIR POLAROIDS

Ever since I got a Polaroid Impulse camera I had the idea to take air to air polaroids. I never got to it because of several reasons. I can't hang out the back of a Skyvan shooting polaroids because theres always a chance that the polaroid goes flying out. It's also not practical to have… Continue reading MAKING AIR TO AIR POLAROIDS

HALLOWEEN IN NYC

When I went to New York I expected to take a bunch of photos on Halloween and even though I knew I wouldn't be at the parade I still had an image in my head of what it could be. For halloween evening we had planned to go to a pumpkin festival about an hour… Continue reading HALLOWEEN IN NYC

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

’92 PORSCHE NEON BTS

The first day of my summer holidays I spent the evening shooting an '92 Porsche. Ever since I saw 'Drive' by Nicolas Winding Refn years ago, I wanted to do a shoot with neon lights, but never happened until now. It was actually after showing pictures I found on Instagram of a Porsche shoot with… Continue reading ’92 PORSCHE NEON BTS

TAKING A PHOTO EVERY DAY FOR 1500 DAYS

On January first 2015 I found myself sitting at a table at my grandparents house. I put a fisheye lens on my iPhone 5 and snapped a picture of my family celebrating the new year. As you can see the fisheye didn't work that well and the photo isn't particularly a good photo. But I… Continue reading TAKING A PHOTO EVERY DAY FOR 1500 DAYS
