A Happy New Year to you all!

Here is a shot from last weekend at this girl’s home. I find it always nice & challenging to do shoots in such a confined space. It offers nice opportunities to create some shots that you would never make in a more sterile studio environment.

Lighting is an issue at these locations, but my Canon 6D still works admirably. And fortunately I like a bit of noise in my images.

When shooting on a gray background, the nice thing is it is easily detachable in Photoshop to subtly adjust. Here I went for quite a bit of subtle post-processing : ProRetouch from Totally Rad (not affiliated but I love their subtle actions), then in the second pass a Sean Archer action. The latter gives some subtle extra lights and less smooth background (actually requiring you to more or less shoot on a 50% gray backdrop) . With lovely model Simone.





It might seem that nothing much is happening here, and you may be right. 😉 Most action takes place on Instagram and less on Facebook (and less, and less…).

Still, I like this one quite a bit, so time for another post here. Hope you like it as well. 🙂

It’s from July this year with Sunsenescence and Anthony. I love the softness and had a hard time switching between high and low contrast. I usually like high contrast, but here a softer look felt better.


Autumn 2018

Here is an image I shot at the end of last summer. Today marked the ending of winter here in the Netherlands, where the sun was as nice to the skin today as it was back in autumn last year.

After some reading in the sun in the garden things got pretty chilly, so a nice excuse to go through some images and put one up here.

Although global warming isn’t a good thing, it’s nice to see the sun again; perhaps it will be as good a summer as it was last year.
