My favourite art filter on my Panasonic camera (GX8) definitely is Dynamic Monochrome. It's the only art filter I use on the Panasonic. I like the contrasty almost film like look of the pictures it produces. When looking at these pictures they look like they were made in the old days, before the invention of smartphones and digital cameras. This is even more emphasised with the proper subject. Like the picture of the old car at the bottom of this page.
Just a short story told by pictures and one liners, visualising how our weekend was.
It has been quite some time since I last posted a blog on my website, mainly because I didn't take as many pictures as I did a year ago. I was too busy enjoying life with my lovely girlfriend Steffie and also because my photo buddy Simon was stranded in the UK because of Covid restrictions. During my 4 week summer vacation, I decided to pick up my camera again and get into the photography vibe again.
This summer vacation Steffie and I stayed in the Netherlands. We visited various places and one of the first places we visited was Harderwijk. The picture below was one of a water feature with vintage posters printed on tiles. I didn't take too many pictures in Harderwijk and the the picture below was the only one really worth keeping.
I became a lot more productive in the other places we visited.
The days are getting shorter and shorter, while the nights seem to last forever. So as to make lemonade out of lemons, Simon and I decided to organise a City by Night photowalk. Giving participants the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Amersfoort, while learning some tips and tricks from grand master Simon and enjoy the good life with the always relaxed me! ;-)
I have been too busy with all kinds of stuff to allow myself to sit down and write a photography related blog. Well, here it comes, at last. Some time ago, Simon sent me a picture, made in our office, of a girl called Angela. She was one of his colleagues, but she was gonna leave the company soon. Simon said, I always wanted to do a photoshoot with a girl with red hair. Angela might be it. A couple of weeks went by and Angela let Simon know she was willing to take part in our little project. A week ago we scouted two possible beach locations. It was a cold windy evening. I didn't take a jacket with me and I was freezing my bits off. Even though the environment wasn't really hospitable, we saw plenty of potential for nice photoshoot.
