Shooting with my new AF-S Nikkor 55-300mm lens… (Nikon D3300 camera). The upside is that you can take these pictures from quite a distance, the downside is that you need to have a very steady hand to take sharp pictures. I will make some more pictures with my 50 and 35mm primes soon.
Babies. The cutest creatures on earth. Love them totally – and in closeup as well. I did a couple of young family and pregnancy shoots and I really feel privileged to witness so much tenderness and love. What happens when we grow up? Do we still live with expectancy and do we realize how good and pure our existence can be? Photography freezes precious moments. Life moves on and so do we. In the meantime, let’s focus on what really matters.
It’s been a while… I still have this photography website but didn’t pay a lot of attention to it for a longer time. However, I still need to pay for the hosting and it’s a waste not to do something good and creative with this space.
For the last couple of months I haven’t been working due to burnout issues. It’s hard to concentrate and it also turns out to be difficult to kick some habits (I tend to put myself under too much pressure, worry too much… and obviously need to relax and trust more…).
Photography is still my favourite pastime, but I recently rediscovered my love for drawing. I’m sure I will pick up my guitar too soon… I love music because it relaxes my mind and eases my soul.
These four guys with their green surfing boards really stand out in this picture. I took this photograph during a quick visit to Scheveningen beach some weeks ago. When I arrived, I was just too tired to go for a walk – that’s how serious my problems had become… I only took this picture and returned home. Now this image speaks to me. ‘You don’t have to carry it on your own’. And, ‘Everything continues, even if you are not personally involved’… It also tells me to calm down, take some breaks and ‘ride the waves of life’.
De tweede bruidsshoot die ik mocht doen. In perfecte omstandigheden (al zag het er eerst naar uit dat de dag in het water zou vallen) en met een prachtig paar in zonnig Zuid-Holland! (Tot vandaag dacht ik dat dit Zeeland was. Oei).
