Traveling

Been busy

As a New Media consultant, producer and expert it’s still difficult to get a job. If photography is involved: great. If not: well it’s still my hobby. So I’ve been very busy getting my stuff together and trying to get a job. Either way still I took some pics.

Some power plant near Sittard… taken from the train.

And a nice friendly spider in our back garden.

Canon 50mm 1.4 USM lens!

As the title already indicates, I got a new lens. And it’s a beauty! The Canon 50mm 1.4 lens. Why is this one so special? The 24-105 covers a wide range and 50mm is in that range… Well the aperture is really nice.

Explanation
The lower the aperture number, the more extreme the Depth of field (DOF) effect is. What is in focus will always be sharp, but what’s out of focus will be blurry. The lower the aperture number, the blurrier out of focus objects are.

Anyway… Back to the actual photo’s. Here are some test shots I made with this lens:


Picture of my desk… kind of messy, 2 camera’s, phone and coffee.


A car in our street. I edited the numberplate for privacyreasons. It looks quite miniature I’d say..


Small shed in the garden…


Don’t eat them! 😛


Painted this one myself…


Attempt at product-photography..


The cat singing.


How cute… Yes it’s real btw.


Water tower in Ijmuiden.


The harbour in Ijmuiden, I ate fish with my girl somewhere there…


And at the beach.


That’s it for now! Bye-bye, and leave a comment!

Still kicking? Yup.

Okay fact, I’m not out of the game yet. Even a 2-3 minute submergion of my camera couldn’t stop me. On the bad side, I did lose my 28-135 USM IS lens. On the bright side, I could finally justify buying a new L lens so I went for the 23-105 and got it for a bargain! This guy was really friendly and gave it to me for a very very good price.. lucky me!

Still it was enough to allmost get me bankrupt lol.

Here some new pics, let’s start with some taken with my 1DMKII and the 100-400 IS USM L lens.

And another one..

And here it was tired of posing… so it went off.

And then this image, it’s one of the first images I took with my 24-105 lens… I love it now already!

And here’s a final, kind of random picture I took with the 5DMKII and an extremely cheap 28-80 lens.. lol.

That’s it for now!

Famous last words, bye 5DMKII.

Due to an accident, my 5D MKII went to the bottom of a small river. I dived in but it was already submerged. Goodbye Canon 5D MKII. I loved it, it was all I had so here are the last pictures I could get back from the camera.

Day before, Joost calling…

Cows the day before, not edited by the way…

And another picture.

This camera was my everything. Photography became a way of life for me and I loved this camera to the bone. As a student I can’t just get another one… I can’t afford it so for now this will be the last post. It’s a sad day.

Cheers all, it was fun.

Amsterdam + Spider

Allright quick post from the last few days. Starting with 3 pictures from my trip to Amsterdam. I’ve met up with a friend who I’ve known over internet for quite a while… we met, had lunch, walked through Amsterdam and had a great time. This is what I had for lunch:

After that I made this picture of a building close to Waterloo Market:

And on my way back to Weesp I took this picture while waiting for the train…

And this morning I saw a spider hanging around on a window, so here’s Spidey:

He started being mysterious…..

Then I fully exposed him:

And then he started doing karate:

I filmed this spider too, will post the movie later-on because it’s kinda cool!

See ya, till next post!
