Last Saturday I was one of two photographers documenting the yearly Sinterklaas activities at our head office. In this blog I will share some behind the scenes photos, so you'll get an idea of the preparations for this feast. Click on "read more" to continue.
A couple of day ago we went on a trip with our department to waste water treatment plant Vroomshoop. This trip was to see what we were all working on, our company designs these plants, and to celebrate a year of hard work and getting good results. It was quite a trip, partly over highways and partly through beautiful small towns. After more than one and a half hours driving, we arrived at the plant. After eating some local bread, drinking hot coffee and listening to a brief presentation by the plant owners, we started our walk. As luck would have it, this was right at sunset giving opportunity to make some nice sunset pictures. Click "Read More" to see the rest.
Last month we participated in a photo competition of our local veterinarian. The theme was "people/pet relationship". The winning photo may be used on cards/invites to pet owners to remind them of the yearly vaccinations of their dog or cat. The winner of the competition also gets a price.
My wife came up with the idea of us and the dog sleeping together in bed. I worked out a plan and thought it might be possible to pull of by making use of a tripod and the remote app on my phone. With te app we could see what the camera was seeing and trigger the camera when ready. We coached our dog into our bed (the sheets needed to be cleaned anyway). But she was very suspicious and a bit nervous as she didn't knew why would want her on the bed (that's normally not allowed), and was probably suspicious, because we wanted her laying in a specific position. Our first plan was to all leigh on our backs. But Nikki didn't want to do that.
Eventually we had her on the right spot. My wife and I then laid beside her and we pulled the sheet over us and the dog, and once I thought it looked kind of okay, I shot three pictures. Very soon our dog wanted to leave, she had enough. We didn't want to force her to stay, so we had to make do with what we had.
