Black and White in June

Black and White in June
Thumb up! Black and White
Thumb up!
Black and White

After some nice streets events, and day trips with Edze, I had quite some pictures to sort out. Some of them looked awesome in Black & White.
So I thought, let’s post one black and white photo each day in June!

The subjects

I’d read some articles about street photography, just to find out what to take into account before trying anything.

If you’re interested in street photography I would advise you to do some reading on this subject. A lot of articles can be found on the internet.
Keep in mind, it’s not what you do photograph but more how and when, with regard to privacy etc.

You can find some articles on my Flipboard page, Photography Tips, which I have been reading.

Actually, it’s just a matter of doing, scan your surrounding constantly and you’ll start to see more scenes worth photographing.

During the cycling event, I took my time and stayed in one place for some time, just to see what was happening around me. Of course, there were the situations with objects or persons which were easy to catch (like the cyclists) Others I found a little bit more difficult because I was close by and was hoping they didn’t notice me, staring at them through my lens. Exciting!!

During the day trips with Edze, most of the time I did not have the opportunity. A kid jumping around, yelling for his dad to see or do this and that is a challenge on its own. It was a lot of fun though.

The results

After gathering a lot of images of all kind of subjects I was very pleased with the results.
I had given myself the opportunity to do this experiment and I loved it!

What’s next?

More Black and White photos will follow definitely.
Most of the photo’s where taken in the place where I’m living. A small village. So much to see.
Imagine what will happen in a big city like Rotterdam!
I’ll plan a visit soon! So keep an eye on this site to find out what will happen. (can’t wait to find out? Have a look over here because it happened!!)

My portfolio has been updated already so if you can’t wait to see them, you’re welcome to have a look at my portfolio “Black & White”

Enjoy!!

 

SteenokkerZeel – Airport Brussel

SteenokkerZeel – Airport Brussel

During the visit at Steenokkerzeel – Airport Brussell, the final approach of a plane in a Red Devils colour scheme, of the Brussel Airlines.
Together with my friend, we stayed there for an hour or so. Just watching commercial airliners come in for the landing.

O and did you see the last post too?
That post was also about SteenokkerZeel – Airport Brussel and there are other flying thingies as well.

What’s next?

Still to figure out a lot.
The SNAP auto poster is still a pain. It works but I need to get the different account set up correctly.

If you like to check out SNAP as a plugin on your site, take a look over here.
I have a lot of fun with it.

Anything else?

Yes, I’ll upload some new photo’s to the albums and portfolio in the next couple of weeks. When I find the time.
Keep an eye out on this site because more will follow soon 😉

You can also follow me on social media as I have already or will post pictures on a daily base.

In case something comes up I’ll let you know with an update post.

Have a nice day!!

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.

colobus monkeys, Update

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.

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.

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.

ShiftyNL-Photography is getting shape.

ShiftyNL-Photography is getting shape

After the startup of this site as I mentioned in my post 2 days ago, a lot of work has been done.

Even though building a website has been made simpler over the years, I still needed a lot of time to get my way around.
Slowly we’re getting there and I’m happy with it.

Colorful, Shape
Colourful

 

 

 

 

 

Getting shape

Finally, as a result of a lot of research,  the site is getting a better appearance in my opinion.
Since the sorting of all my photos is getting better and the processing too, I’m adding pictures in several galleries as well.

You all Keep an eye out on this because there will follow more soon 😉
