Welcome to my blog where I present examples of my work.

I have a home studio, with small and large softboxes (including remote triggers), a wind machine, various rolls of background paper and more.

You can check out my Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/ruud.vangaal .

These days I’m also using Instagram a lot, so if you’re mostly interested in just browsing images, check out https://instagram.com/ruudvangaal .

Lastly, I have an account on Tumblr as well: http://ruudvangaal.tumblr.com/

  1. oHai!

    I came here to thank you for following me, but am finding I really do love most of your work as well! I think the female body incredibly beautiful, and you do a fantastic job capturing it. ::smiles:: Every photo of yours has such an intense feel to it- Almost feels as though I’m staring into each of their souls. …Just wonderful!

    Consider yourself added back, as I very much look forward to seeing more of your work! ^_^

    • Those are very kind words, Bettina, I don’t think anybody has ever complimented me on my photos like that, so thanks so much for your comment! 🙂 We share the same admiration for the female body it seems then. There will be more work indeed, I still have a backlog of photos I need to finalize with Photoshop, and more shoots are coming… Always trying for something slightly different each time.

      • They haven’t? Well, that’s terrible! ..Cause you really are quite good. You are most welcome! And that’s great to hear! I myself play around with slightly different ideas, but I don’t discard old ones. I swear the photos speak to me when I’m editing and choosing which to use. I honestly almost never plan any single one of my photos… Really, almost none of them! lol

        Looking forward to more of your work! ^_^


  2. [This reply is for Zeebam, somehow WordPress doesn’t like going too deep perhaps] Well, I do get compliments about my photos, but not in grand words like this, so thanks again. 🙂 Choosing photos is indeed quite easy, I flip through them and a good one almost immediately drawns attention, so I don’t have trouble picking my favorites. As for planning shots, I do tend to start out with existing ideas, then work from there. And play around with lights a lot (as I’m in a studio) to get some mood into it. Amazing how much variation you can achieve with relatively little.
