On my way to school I found this frozen fella laying in the grass coverd in frost and I just had to take a picture.
Luckily for me I had my macro attached to my camera.
As I was pouring myself a drink I noticed how cool the drops on the glass looked and I thought “why not photograph that too”.
So here they are and again with the backlit flash setup I used earlier on the leaf photo.
And here is a crop of the first ( I was amazed by the texture of the drops)
So I decided to take a macro of a lead today.
And my goal was to photograph all the fine lines that are invisible to the naked eye.
To do this I lit the leaf from behind with my Metz 48 flash on wireless mode and the flash of light made all the lines on the leaf to shine through.
I think I achieved what I was looking for but it would be nice to try this another time with a better lens or maybe a variation of the color of the flash.
This wil be the first post to feature a bigger photo (no I will not adjust the size on previous posts).
So I just got back from a shoot with my buddy Cezan.
We went to the Kleine Wielen to shoot some long exposures of us running with torches (the burning kind).
This shoot was postponed a couple of time because the weather here in the Netherlands is damn unpredictable.
After riding around the park for a while we found a dried up fountain and this thing was perfect because the remaining water caused some great reflections. (as always click more for more pictures)
So this week was a big week for our project group, because we had to pitch our progress to the whole minor (50 people).
To do this we had to go to on of the dutch islands called Vlieland.
And of course I did my best to spend every free minute I had on the island to take some pictures.
As always click “more” for more pictures.
On our way to the supermarket me and my fiance noticed that there was and arts and crafts sale at the Blokhuispoort.
For those that don’t know what the Blokhuispoort is, the Blokhuispoort is a converted prison.
At this prison are the prison cells for rent to be used by local artists to be used as a workplace.
You can find more info on their website here http://www.blokhuispoort.nl/# but its only in Dutch.
Most of you probably noticed that I haven’t made a post for quite a while.
I didn’t post any pictures because my camera got completely destroyed by a freak accident during a storm.
What happened might you ask?
Everyone who knows me knows that I take my camera everywhere with me.
So two weeks ago I went off to school and as usual I grabbed my camera bag filled with my a65 with 50mm F/1.8 lens.
I also packed my Sigma Super-wide 24mm and went off too school.
On my way there I noticed it was pretty windy but in the back of my mind I thought “cool at least I have my camera with me if something happens”.
I went for a small walk today and decided to take my camera with me.
On my walk I took this picture I wanted to share here.
