What do you think of this: Tel-Aviv beach trip

We were on vacation recently. It was more of a stay-cation – we are new to Israel so it was a perfect time for some local tourism. Instead of renting a car and heading to some holiday resort, we slept at home and took day trips. We spent the afternoon of our third day at […]

Motion

The Flickr blog has a blog post linking to a gallery of photos that capture people in motion using different styles, which I really like: Capturing movement in our photos can be challenging, but it’s a great way to convey emotions. Here is a selection of some wonderful shots that capture motion in creative ways. To see […]

Inspired by Basti Hansen

I noticed Basti Hansen‘s Tel-Aviv Gay Pride 2015 Parade Video on Facebook a few days after the parade and just watched it. It is a fun video and it prompted me to look up more of Hansen’s work: He shoots a combination of video and still photography and his work is pretty dynamic and leaves […]

Bicycle handlebars

I love virtually everything about this photo of bicycle handlebars titled “Kalverstraat” by Lucas (): I really like using a shallow depth of field in many of my photos. My favourite lens is my f1.8 50mm lens although I am still learning how to capture as much detail as I need at those lower f-stops […]

I knew I had to do something absolutely insane for Michael (Gray) & Jane. With Jane being my wife’s identical twin and […]

Tips for back- and frontlit photography

One of the things I enjoy about my photography is learning how to take better photos by taking ones that tend to go into my virtual filing cabinet, marked as learning experiences. Fortunately there are loads of guides and tutorials online for photographers and I just came across a simple, though really helpful tutorial video featuring […]

Colours and contrasts with flowers

I went for a walk the other day with my camera in my neighbourhood and came across some beautiful subject matter. I’m not sure whether I really ever do subject matter like this justice when I shoot it but I feel compelled to capture it as best I can regardless. Two things stood out for […]

Not so easy shooting Jasmine

I spent some time shooting a Jasmine bush today and I found it tricky taking decent shots. My style seems to be pretty focused when it comes to flowers and Jasmine bushes are really busy plants to shoot. I think I captured a couple good ones, at least photos I like. I’ll see how they […]
