A Dandelion’s Life

Macro shots of the different phases in the life cycle of a dandelion. Shots taken on a cloudy day using the Nikon D300 combined with the Sigma 150mm 2.8

Club69 K’s choice

Last Friday I was one of the lucky bastards to enjoy an exclusive K’s choice gig for only ’69 x 2‘ persons in the small marconi-studio of  the belgian radio station StuBru.
I was really blown away by their performance -once they are on stage, their energy level  is incredibly high- and I really wanted to enjoy the show itself. Nevertheless; I also took some time to take a few front row pics!

From start to finish

Since I am passionate about both ‘sports’ and ‘photography’, I am evidently  interested in photographing sport events. In this blog post you can find the photo series I made of the Cross in Betekom a while ago.

Although I don’t have much experience in this very specific branch of photography yet,  I aimed this time not to make only the ‘traditional’ sport images.
I tried to play around with lines and shadows, expressions and typical things.

I choose Black & White for uniformity of the series.
Also in my opinion; patterns, light, expressions, … come out better without the distraction of color.

Thanks for looking, feel free to comment!


The rhythm of light

Another triptych I made for photography classes. This time I had to photograph the same object on exactly the same spot with exactly the same point of view only changing the lighting setup in the studio. This way different characteristics of the object had to come forward in the different photographs.

can you notice  the suggestion of motion of the pendulum due to illumination with the pilot light?
In the first photo I wanted to show the varnished wooden surface. It reflects the light of a softbox placed at the right side at the back.

In th photo above I created a silhouette by illuminating the background evenly to accentuate the specific form. To make the object recognizable, I created a very small strip light to make the logo and pendulum visible.

In the last photo harsh backlight illuminates the contours of my object. Using reflector panels I created sufficient light to make the metronome recognizable.

If one is interested to see them side by side; just click!

Strobist portrait of girl scouting

This portrait of a girl scouts group (Belgian youth movement) was made using off camera flash. I underexposed the environment to create a more dramatic background. An SB600 flash with diffuser (on a too low -I know- ) light stand was used as a fill light.

I took this photo standing on the high white cliffs of Dover. The low viewpoint in combination with the foggy, almost invisble horizon creates an optical illusion;
It looks like the Ferry’s navigate right into the sky…

Keep on dreaming,
have a good night!
