Hilariously epic wedding photographs

The original title was ‘Epic wedding photographs’ but I don’t really want to do clickbait, so I did the research and it turned out what Google thinks people consider ‘epic’ in wedding photography is when the bride and groom stand in a sublime and / or unlikely landscape. So I thought, maybe I should say … Continue reading “Hilariously epic wedding photographs”

Best photograph of 2020

Last summer I shot a mountain landscape in the French Alps with my Sony A7. For the longest time it looked like this would be the only photograph worth mentioning this year. But this morning I shot a photograph of my wife’s knee with my viewcamera which turns out to be at least as worthy … Continue reading “Best photograph of 2020”

Mountain landscape

Last summer I shot this landscape during sunset. It is to become part of the series ‘U’ I have been working on for several years now. ‘U’ features mountain landscapes constructed from several photographs where references to human civilization have been removed, thus ‘timeless’, under a night-sky that is shot by NASA telescopes and post-processed … Continue reading “Mountain landscape”

Videography (part 1)

Many photographers have moved into videography, at least partly. This is no doubt fuelled by modern DSLR’s being excellent video cameras and nowadays even preferred over ‘regular’ video cameras in many cases on the one hand, and society moving towards motion image replacing text or still images because of the attention grabbing capabilities that come … Continue reading “Videography (part 1)”

Photographing a watch

Photographing a watch is a meticulous work especially regarding focus and lighting. Because the dial (also called face) must be sharp (probably, depending on the mood you’re going for but for the sake of simplicity, most times it is excellent to go with a dial fully in focus, it is the most significant part to … Continue reading “Photographing a watch”

Cambo Ultima 23D Leaf Aptus 22

Many years I was hesitant to buy into a large format / medium format viewcamera system, such as the Cambo Ultima 23D with Leaf Aptus 22. After serious consideration five years ago I chickened out and bought a Pentax 645D. When I finally sold the Pentax to get this system two years ago, not all … Continue reading “Cambo Ultima 23D Leaf Aptus 22”

Photographing a screw

The previous two years I have worked as a marketing person for Jeveka, a technical wholesaler in fasteners and tools. We’re talking about screws here mostly. Important for the screw is the head, where you can see the screw drive type and markings if any. Also the fact that screws are round. This is clearly … Continue reading “Photographing a screw”

Jeff Wall and an Apple

This morning I stumbled upon this photograph while I was looking for some older work. I photographed this after seeing Monologue from Jeff Wall. I liked the idea of the stage with the streetlamp and the lit window in the background and the darkness, which is not often seen in his photographs. In my photograph … Continue reading “Jeff Wall and an Apple”

Always looking for the best fitting connection

For my current employer Jeveka I wanted to create a visual identity for a couple of larger (then) upcoming projects, specifically the catalogue and a new website, while we are also in the process of defining the corporate identity. Jeveka deals in fasteners and tools. Their vision which I helped put into words last year … Continue reading “Always looking for the best fitting connection”

My life as a model

2017 did not see my traditional end of year post. Photography died on me last winter even though there are some loose ends that need tightening and some research to be done. And I have to tell you about the Leaf + Cambo + Mamiya setup I pieced together last year. Well, maybe later. Last … Continue reading “My life as a model”
