Frisian Flag 2018, Large Scale Military Exercise.

From Sunday 8 April to Friday 20 April, Leeuwarden Air Base hosted the large-scale international exercise Frisian Flag 2018.

I had the opportunity to visit this major event in the north of our beautiful country on April 16th. An early start that morning and on my way to the spotter’s hill close to runway 05.
After parking my car it didn’t take long before the first wave took off.

Except for the Polish MIG-29 Fulcrum’s (2x) all countries took off, returning within an hour and a half.
After all, planes were back and safely landed we had a break for about an hour or so before the second wave started.

Well, at the end of the day the total clicks of my camera were up with a bit more than 3200 photos taken. (o my god… )
Anyway, I had a great day and it felt good to be back close to the base again.

For a first impression of the photos, have a look at my Portfolio under Aviation_Military.
I’ll add more soon after I have sorted them all… (which is still a lot)

Enjoy!!

Portfolio Update

Portfolio Update

Had a busy week with two school events at Edze’s school.
One soccer tournament and one trip to the Zoo Diergaarde Blijdorp. I was totally down and out after these two days. Kids in the age of 8 – 9 years is a handful when trying to control them. Impossible!

At the Zoo the group got an education about camouflage in nature and what sorts of camouflage are used by animals. Have to say, learned some new things by myself as well.

And, a nice surprise was that there was a new family member born within the colobus monkeys.
See picture down below. It was a bit dark and behind glass, so quality is not that good, unfortunately.

What Else?

Anyway.
I have not yet posted pictures of both school events and the kids.  The school has the first pick of these 😉
But on the way to the Zoo and back to school, I made some pictures with my phone, one or two of them are posted in my Portfolio.

Galleries

After the last update regarding my galleries, some more pictures have been added to the galleries Wildlife_Birds and Wildlife_Birds of Prey.

What’s next?

Yes, Social media again.
I finished the Social Media.

Keep an eye out on this site because more will follow soon 😉

Equipment used by ShiftyNL-photography

The Equipment

Having looked around on this site and reading the different post about my galleries, you might wonder what equipment I’m using.
Not that it’s important when you just like to see the photo’s on this site.
You just might not be interested in it.

Anyway, I like to tell a bit more about the hardware I use to get these results.
I also use Lightroom, Photoshop and some other nice plugin or standalone tools.

Therefore I added a page to the website to show you what I use.

New photo’s added to my Portfolio

New photo’s added on my site ShiftyNL-Photography.

Since I started setting up this site and posting my first post in November 2017 a lot needed to be sorted out. The technical part behind this site but also a load of pictures.

In my last post of 2019-04-05, I added and updated some galleries.
And still, there are loads of pictures to sort out.

Saturday, 2018-04-07, I used my time to sort out all photo’s taken in 2016 en some from 2017.
Still, have loads to go through.
I re-edited some photo’s in Lightroom and Photoshop and added them to my Portfolio.

Look for them in Dogs, Wildlife_Birds, Wildlife_Mammals and Landscapes_Skylines.

In the Landscapes_Skylines a beautiful picture from the Overwaard windmills at Kinderdijk.

What else?

This week I have a football tournament and a school trip to the Zoo Blijdorp with my son Edze, which will probably add more photo’s to sort out 🙂

Yes, I have another Social Media channel. This time Pinterest.
Take a look over there. It’s nice.

What’s next?

Next week I’ll travel up north to visit the Frisian Flag 2018 and hope to get some new photo material from this event as well.

An update from this all will follow soon.

I’m also still working on the auto-post script.
It needs some scripting to have it all run smoothly.

Updated My Portfolio on ShiftyNL-Photography

Updated My Portfolio on ShiftyNL-Photography

In my last post, I mentioned that added some new galleries to my portfolio.
Today galleries with some more older and newer work.

Galleries

Two new Galleries are added to the site.

Bumble bee, My Portfolio

What else?

I finally implemented an auto-post option into the site, which makes it possible to re-post any news and/or update to 5 other social media accounts.
Some live testing is in progress so you might see some not so useful messages the next couple of days which will be deleted afterwards. 😉

What’s next?

Again I added a new social media channel. This time Google+.
Because I was doing an online Social Media Course, I learned that a Google+ account adds a lot more to any posting you do.
Facebook and Instagram do have their own policies which are not always the best for you.
Have look at my Google+ account.

The Galleries

A few days ago I added some new gallery stuff.
After having made all the picture sizes equal I added some new Galleries.
It’s looking even better now.

What’s next?

Social media. Again I added a new social media channel. This time Flipboard.
Because of the setup of Flipboard, I liked the idea to set it up.

Take a look at my Flipboard account!

Yet, I’m still looking for an auto-post script to have it all automated.
There are a few but these are limited to only 3 accounts.
Unfortunately, I have more than 3.

The Gallery

After working on my social media I also worked on the galleries.

The Wildlife_Birds has been added as a gallery to the Portfolio.
Which looks quite awesome.

What’s next?

I’m still looking for an auto-post script, most of all to get some posting automated.
Because of automating, I only need to align up posts and have the script do the rest for me.

And another social media has been added. In my previous post, I mentioned that I was working hard on this subject.
Have a look at my Tumblr account.

Now you think, Why are you using so many social media accounts?
That’s a good question.
Because I like fiddling with social media and web development, to some extent, I just love to be active in that way.

It’s fun!!

Small changes

Made some small changes today.

Galleries

Setting up the galleries is a fact, as I mentioned in my post of yesterday.
In the meantime a worked hard to get some more functionality to the site

Small changes

Social media buttons

Because I’m posting on different social media channels I added Social media buttons to the site.

One of the other channels, to which I post, is my Instagram account.
I will add more social media accounts in the future because I like the idea to have the photos seen by a lot more people than only friends.

Other changes

I made a few other small changes on the About page as well.
You can see over here a bit more where I’m coming from.

I’m Proud, I finally can say that the galleries are up.

galleries are up, Love, Galleries

I started uploading and a first small selection of my photos are online.

I took me some time to gather the photo’s I like most. As a result of that, it took some more time than expected.
I’m still in post-processing the photos or started over, post-processing them.

Posting

I will post more in the future on the ongoing of this site.
In the meantime, I’m posting on my Twitter account too.
Over here you’ll find photos as well, which are (not yet) in any gallery

I promise, more will follow soon.
