Bl3nder in de Melkweg

Bl3nder gaf gisteren een spetterend optreden in de Melkweg in Amsterdam. Natuurlijk werden nummers van hun nieuwe album Gekkenhuis, hun “gouwe ouwe” Leipe Shit Ouwe! en werden we getrakeerd op heerlijke funky en jazzy jams.

Vlad Buda

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.

Vakantiefoto's

Dit jaar zijn we weer naar Kroatië gegaan, en hebben we een heel aantal bol-panorama’s geschoten. Daarnaast ook een hoop zwart-wit foto’s met mijn Hasselblad 500 C/M. Hier onder vind je er alvast twee, de rest moet ik nog afdrukken en scannen.

First photos with a Hasselblad

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.

Trying out T-Max 400

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.

Sheepies in Utrecht

The campus of Utrecht University has a small field with sheep, and today I got up close and personal. One of the big sheep was even tame enough to let me stroke and pat it!

Long romantic weekend in Paris

Marit and I had a long, very romantic weekend in Paris a few weeks ago. Photo-wise all I took with me was my Chinon CS, two lenses (50mm f/1.

Joe McNally shows history of NG from 1992

One of my photographic heroes, Joe McNally, wrote a blog post looking back 20 years at National Geographic. He also has a video from back in 1992 about the process of National Geographic, from the photograph via editing, more editing, and then finally to print.

Photoshoot with Janet

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.
