Last weekend Amsterdam was visited by a great group of over 250 Blender professionals and enthousiast, for the Blender Conference 2013. This year it was my pleasure to give a workshop about my research, and how I use Blender to visualize my result.
For the attendants (and other interested people), I've put my presentation, the Blender file and accompanying SQLite database online: https://stuvel.eu/files/bcon_2013_sybren_workshop.7z
You can still see the workshop online on Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wt8WdSvaRms&feature=player_detailpage#t=620 (the first 10 minutes is just people leaving the previous workshop, and me setting up).
These are the first photos I've taken with my Hasselblad 500 C/M. I was actually planning of shooting in black & white mostly, but since I had some unused colour film in my fridge I thought it would be a good idea to practice with that. Turns out I really like the result! The colours are vivid, but still look natural, and the bokeh of the lens is simply terrific. I love this camera!
Some weeks ago I woke up early on a saturday morning. That's nothing like me, as I love to sleep in late. But still, I wanted to catch the light glimmering off one of Holland's largest canals and reflecting into the trees, and to get the right angle of the light I had to get there early.
This photo shows the relaxed atmosphere of the northern part of Amsterdam, while in the background there is the busy central train station. Be sure to check it out large.
A few hundred meters further north along the same canal I found this spot. Again the light reflected beautifully off the water. Everybody I met that morning was friendly, and there was a great atmosphere. I think this photo reflects that well.
I've bought myself a Nodal Ninja 3 panorama head. Today I gave it a first test run, and it worked very well! That's my bike, by the way ;-)

The details about how I created this photo are after the break.
Een groep van 36 kunstenaars uit 6 landen zijn bijeen gekomen om onze stad op te fleuren. Op dit moment werken ze in Amsterdam Noord bij het Mosveld.
Natuurlijk kon ik het niet laten om wat foto's er van te schieten.
This panorama shows something that I quite often see; the people here are waiting for the ferry to cross the IJ (the lake that separates the northern part of Amsterdam from the rest).

This time I used Hugin for remapping and aligning the photos, but I merged them by hand in The Gimp. It's quite an easy process, and it gives you much more control. I took the photos without a tripod or any other form of support, so not everything lined up perfectly, which is where the manual control came in handy.
Today we went to Artis again - the Amsterdam zoo. I just love shooting animals!
The weather is getting pretty bad in my home town, which means that it's a great time to shoot some very interesting night shots! So, who's up for a photo walk through Amsterdam?
Of course, we can start during the day, get some nice food in the city centre, and shoot some more after the sun has gone down.
Being Dutch isn't required!
De Uitmarkt is the opening of the cultural season in Amsterdam. We went to see Bl3nder, and they totally rocked! It was the first time I saw Def P (the world's best rapper) live, and it was everything I hoped for :) Their drummer was absolutely amazing!
Of course, I've taken a few shots
