365 Day 99

April 17th – Lonely tree I took a stroll along some rural roads after work not really knowing where I was going when I came across this tree at an intersection in the middle of nowhere. Taking a picture of this tree was kind of a long shot because of the curse of the Belgian road signs. As an experiment I tried to clone the signs out. Most of them were pretty straightforward “Content-Aware Fill” but the red one took some time to clone away. I had to reconstruct a piece of road, some of the brown field and half a...

365 Day 98

April 16th – 10 weeks Another Milestone in the life of Mr. E who just turned 10 weeks old. We had a blast taking this picture and so did Elliot. Having fun during a shoot makes for a cool picture as it seems. I really like the rays of light coming through the curtains and hitting the couch behind Elliot. This fits well into my changed MO of textured...

365 Day 97

April 15th – Mother and child I think my wife has become very grateful for my photography “obsession” at this stage. She knows that Elliot’s growing-up will be well-documented. The only problem that we have now is that I’m ever so absent in pictures with Mr. E. Or maybe I’m looking at it the wrong way, maybe there’s just a great amount of pictures of my wife and kid while there is a normal amount of pictures that feature me. You see there’s a positive side to...

365 Day 96

April 14th – Cucumber Lately I’ve grown a little bit tired of the studio look with a plain white or black background. So now I’m trying to create a little more original backgrounds which look cool out of focus. For today’s image I tried to capture cucumbers in a more homey environment. I added a red kitchen towel as underground to emphasize the home sweet home...

365 Day 95

April 13th – Tulips Flowers are becoming one of the most featured images in the project. They’re an easy subject, you can find them in your own backyard and they’re beautiful. They’re the ideal subject for a 365 project where it’s not always easy to find an original subject.

365 Day 94

April 12th – Gait Klein Kromhof’s CD release My mother’s husband is quite a successful harmonica player in the Netherlands. Last Saturday there was a concert to present his first CD and they asked me to take some pictures of the show. This was quite a learning opportunity and I took it with both hands. I read up a little on concert photography and once again realized that my camera and lens are not really the right equipment for difficult light situations. Luckily I have a pretty decent flash to make up for the shortcomings...

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...
