Last Wednesday my manager offered me a new contract at work leaving me working for 4 days a week. This means I will have 1-2 days a week to spent on other stuff. I’ve decided I want to dedicate these hours to photography and video. So here it is, me working on a new version of the website where I offer various services.
If you have questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m still starting up and I have a LOT of boring paperwork to figure out, but it’ll be worth it.
Many thanks to friends and colleagues for their support.
Oaky it’s been a while but life has been crazy! I moved to Emmerich, I STILL don’t have internet there and I’ve been busy at work as well. Working 40 hours a week is quite a lot, especially if you do a lot of crunchtiming.
Photography still has it’s place in my daily routines and I occaisionly still take pictures. Especially in the weekends of course. So here are some very recent pictures all taken around my new house. Enjoy!
Trying out a new studio setup with a black background and an improvised softbox. So far I’m quite happy with it but I’ve got lot’s to learn… luckily!
Heikki’s helmet when he still raced for ING Renault F1. I got this helmet from Isabelle Connor after an assignment I did for her. That made me so proud!
Here you can see Heikki’s autograph really good, awesome!
A bit edited to my likings, but probably less than how much you’d suspect… the light setup, less contrast and the white balance already does a lot.
Last but not least, where the magic happens:
Comments/questions are very welcome of course! Hope you enjoy.
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.
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…
