LiVe For Photography:

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!

Nevertheless, they their point!

I attended a playfull parade in which the funeral of the NATO was ‘celebrated’. Literally!
