365 Day 93

April 11th – Flowery forest part II Taking photographs of the Hallerbos during the flowering season of the bluebells had been on my wishlist for quite a while. I went there for a walk with the dogs on day 74 and took some nice shots of the forest covered in crisp white wood anemones. While this was definitely pleasing to look at and worth the visit, it was merely a scouting mission in preparation of the real enchantment of the forest. The flourishing of the bluebells…. To take the pictures featured in this post I made...

365 Day 92

April 10th – Baby portrait My son is such a grateful subject to photograph. You just can’t take a bad picture of him. Because my wife went to the physical therapist I was home alone with him for a little while and I couldn’t resist to mess around a little...

365 Day 91

April 9th – Weathered pole I passed this view when returning home after taking pictures of the orchard last Saturday. Today I took an earlier exit on the road home and stopped here. I thought that this weathered pole was a good foreground element.  I did get some bad lens flare but I was able to cover it up to some extent. One of the problems with taking pictures in Belgium is that you’re never more than 50 meters (165 feet) away from a traffic sign. This tree looked like a good subject for a photograph, sadly it’s...

365 Day 90

April 8th – Church part II Today I tried to recapture the church of Elene. I took a picture of it somewhere last week but didn’t like the narrow crop. I couldn’t get the shot physically wider because I was at my minimum focal length of 18 mm and I had my back against a wall. So to make this shot wider I had to work with multiple shots and stitch them together in Photoshop. I also wanted this in HDR so the final image is made out of 8 images in 3 different exposures stitched together. To be honest I went a little out of my...

365 Day 89

April 7th – Excavator Something I’ve been keeping my eyes open for is the opportunity to take a picture of an excavator. Something I could use on the website for some things that are under construction but are already publicized.  And what better describes something being under construction than a heavy-duty building machine. I saw this excavator after work and tried to position myself to take a cool picture of it. I’m not 100% satisfied with the composition, I couldn’t really find an angle that looked good. It will...

365 Day 87

April 5th – Blossom I saw the chance to escape the house during the golden hour and drove to an orchard I noticed nearby a couple of days ago. Pear trees with white blossoms neatly planted in rows divided the orchard in alternating green and white. The sun shone its last rays of light, the clouds were present in just the right amount, it all came together...

365 Day 86

April 4th – Belgian beer To celebrate the end of the week and the beginning of the weekend, I give you a fine looking blonde. Blonde beer that is, before the ambiguous minds start to wander off. It’s always tricky to photograph reflecting objects. The picture below is composed out of 4 different exposures with different lighting and it’s still nowhere near the real deal. The upside is, with every attempt to craft a decent picture of shiny things I gain a little more experience. Enjoy your weekend and bottoms...

365 Day 85

April 3rd – Daffodils I’ve been showing a lot of flowers lately. I can’t help it, it’s part of the season I suppose… They are beautiful anyway so I don’t really need to make up excuses here. Today: some daffodils I spotted in Zottegem city.
