amsterdam-biking part I

dear followers and readers out there,

here’s the first part of my amsterdam-biking-series. some of you already know that i adore biking (especially in amsterdam – it’s the best way to explore the city and to get around) and i love taking picutres of people on bikes. don’t you think they look very stylish?

apart from that, i got a full-time-job now, and i’m afraid there’s not much time left for blogging. i’ll try my best to continue blogging regularly!

i whish you all a wonderful sunday!

jump!

last sunday i had another workshop at my photography course, this time we shot portraits at the studio with different light settings and light sources.
i enjoyed it a lot, i’m getting more confident with the studio equipment and shooting people in general :)

this is zita, a gorgeous young woman – i fell in love with her hair immediately :)

at the christmas market

finally i was brave enough to take pictures of humans, isn’t that great?
i hope the new year brings some more portrait opportunities, i really wanna take more photos of people but for me it’s not as easy as it sounds. so if you have any advice, please let me know :)

and i know i’m a  bit late with christmas pictures, but i couldn’t find the time to share them with you earlier. i hope you enjoy the photos nevertheless, i know some people are really fed up with christmas (i am, too).

workshop: working with a detachable flash unit

i had another workshop at my school on sunday last week. we already had one where we took portraits with the studio flash unit, this time we only worked with our detachable flash units. i always had some difficulties when using my flash, so i was very happy about the opportunity to learn how to use it right. i specially liked the diffused light you get when flashing against a white curtain or against a wall. i hope you also like it :)

weekly photo challenge: eerie

some time ago i was asked by a friend to take pictures during her music video shoot. it was a great experience to see how a movie set is organized, there’s a huge effort behind it. i had an awesome time and really enjoyed being the photographer there.
i was waiting for the perfect opportunity to show you some of the pictures, and this week’s photo challenge seemed to be right.
