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

2019, New road ahead

Wow, was 2018 a busy year!

Finally 2019, New-road ahead and lots of new things to do.

Now, 6 -7 weeks after moving in my new home everything is slowly getting its place again.
I’m used to having a lot more space, therefore, I have to be creative with the available space.
My house is a lovely place though. I even have a real garden with quite some little-feathered friends ūüôā

Last year I went to several events, visited an old friend, started a new job and moved to my new home.
Regrettably, I was not able to keep the updates going.
Too busy and too much going on to get everything arranged for the move to my new home.

My Photography

My photography never stopped.
Luckily, I still have loads of unposted pictures, therefore, posting every day will not be a problem. Follow me on my social media accounts to find out what has been posted.

2019, New-road ahead, lots of new things to happen!
New events

With regard to planes and helicopters, the next visits of airforce bases are already planned.

January 9, we had the Farewell Sea-King at the Airforce base Koksijde
The three of us left early so we had some time for a coffee, halfway the trip. Certainly, we arrived on schedule. This event started at 12.30 and we left (earlier) at 18.30. (We had an evening shoot as well!!)

I tell you, it was a very cold day I can tell. We were standing in the open field, just beside the runway. N-W wind straight in our faces, with a few hail and rain shower.

See some of my pictures down below

However, I’ll tell you more about it soon. he pictures from Koksijde were made with this beast of a machine.
