Afgelopen oud & nieuw heb ik Jordan geholpen met het installeren van een foto-studio in z'n eigen kamer. Natuurlijk moesten we het uitproberen, en dit is het resultaat:
My friend Vlad trains at Raw Power Baarn. A few months ago I went to one of his training sessions, and I was very impressed by not only their strength of body but also of the mind. Vlad knows exactly what kind of signals his body sends, which pain he can push through, and when to stop.
Most of the photos I shot on Ilford Delta 3200. Back then I still used an old light meter that turned out to be very inaccurate in dark situations, so unfortunately the film was heavily underexposed. I'm quite happy with the result I got, though, it came out much better than I expected (after I did a lot of measurements and printed with the highest filtration for the most contrast).
One of my favourite photographers, Stephan Vanfleteren, seems to shoot Kodak T-Max 400 film (the film is labeled Kodak 400TMY as you can see in some of his portraits). I wanted to give the film a try too, so I met up with my friend and willing subject Matthijs for a Sunday morning photoshoot in the park. Here is the first result.
A week ago my friend Janet asked for a photographer on Facebook. The next day she stood in front of me, modeling outdoors in Amsterdam. I had packed all kind of gear - digital camera, flashes, light stands, umbrella, reflectors, analogue camera, the whole shebang. Only I had forgotten to bring any memory cards... so I left all the digital stuff in the bag, and only used my trusty Chinon CS with Kodak Tri-X 400 film.
I got the negatives developed and scanned, and here are the results!
My old website has been online for april 2006. Since that time it has grown considerably. My focus also moved from software engineering to photography, and this new design makes that a lot clearer. Some of the webpages may not yet be available. Don't worry, most of it will be ported in the next few weeks. If you're missing something, let me know and I'll give it priority.
I've also put the photos online of a photoshoot with model Selina. This was the first time for me doing a model-shoot with my old Flexaret IV twin-lens reflex medium format camera. I must say I'm very pleased with the result! Having only 12 frames on a roll is a nice break from shooting with a 7 FPS digital SLR.
Yesterday Ork and I went to a Strobist meeting in Breukelen, The Netherlands. We had a lot of fun, joining 18 photographers and 16 models, in an old abandoned industrial building. Fervently used by graffiti artists and as an illegal dumping site for tires it was quite a nice setting.
This photo was made in an old ship factory in Amsterdam Noord (the NDSM Wharf). We picked a suitable old and faded green wall as the background, set up the lights, and started shooting.
The key lights are two Canon Speedlite 430EX strobes. They were pointed up into tall U-shaped corrugated cardboard sheets that were lined with aluminium foil to form DIY strip lights; both strobes were set to 1/4 power. The fill light was provided by a Speedlite 580EX-II at 1/16 power through a shoot-through umbrella.
I shot with my Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM on a Canon EOS 7D. The 1.6x crop factor makes this a very nice portrait lens. The aperture was f/8 to get sufficiently deep depth of field and sharp results, and the shutter speed of 1/250 second ensured that no available light got onto the sensor.
Here is a wide shot that shows the setup. I used the 7D as the master, and I was surprised how well it worked. Because I used my 85mm f/1.8 I could move back a little (compared to my standard 17-55mm zoom), which made the slave strobes more into the "field of view" of the popup flash. The 430EX's "looked" at Marit instead of my camera, so I added some aluminium foil to bounce the master flash into their IR sensors.
Thank you for reading!
Today we went to Artis again - the Amsterdam zoo. I just love shooting animals!
