Street Photography in Rotterdam

Street Photography in Rotterdam

In my post last year about Black and White in June, I asked myself how it would be when doing street photography in the big city Rotterdam.
Eventually, it took me a while before I dared to dive into this kind of photography.

Workshop

Taking pictures on the street is definitely something unusual.
Therefore I submitted to a workshop on street photography.
After some searching on the internet, I found a workshop, organized by Fokko Muller.
Thereafter, I entered the big city Rotterdam.
It appeared a scary thing to do, actually.

During this workshop, I had to do various exercises.
Each exercise had a different approach on how to take pictures.
Preferably ignored by the people who were my victims.

The results

In the end, I was absolutely happy with the results and street photography was less scary than expected.
When you approach the people in some way, they don’t even bother that you’re taking pictures. This also depends on how you aim the camera towards people.
The one-third rule helps a lot because you’re not aiming directly towards the people.

Album

Thus, I’ll upload the album of this session somewhere in the next couple of weeks. I’ll not post all of them though. Just the good ones ( in my opinion)

What’s next?

I have some nice events coming up which, some of them, I already mentioned in a previous post.

  • Next week I’ll drive up north to the 2019 Frisian Flag
  • In October, this year, I’ll have another amazing workshop shoot with Claudio Picolli. I’m really looking forward to that one as well.
  • 2 more flight shows are scheduled to visit.
  • Spring is here, therefore I’ll get my macro gear more frequently. With my new Fuji XT3 combined with some macro tubes and analogue lens (Super Takamura 55mm), I enjoy myself a lot.If you like to find out what gear I use, in my post of 2018-04-09, I told something about the equipment. Something has changed though.
Anything else?

I’ll try to post any activities as soon as possible.
However, you can follow me on social media or keep an eye on my portfolio

Enjoy!!
