Each week I will be posting one of my pictures here for two reasons. The first one is to give you an insight how I create my pictures. The second reason is to learn myself to be more actively involved in the picture taking process and in that way to understand my style and to improve my picture taking ability to let it become real photography.

Each picture will show the exif info and a description of my interpretation of the captured moment. Please feel free to give me any feedback, positive or negative! From each comment I can learn if the comment is open and honest!

Most of my pictures have been processed in Adobe Lightroom, with superficial tweaks. Although I am a supporter of minimizing the use of digital image enhancing and always strive to let the picture itself show it’s greatness, sometimes the camera is unable to capture all exposures like a human eye. To recreate the moment I sometimes use simple tweaks like highlights, shadows and contrast. Some pictures use HDR by blending different exposures. I do not add other digital elements in my pictures.

To get inspiration, I also look at other photographers. At the moment these are mainly:

  • Thomas Heaton, see his Youtube channel for his vlogs. He inspires me to think more about the set-up of a photograph and to plan a composition ahead and
  • Jimmy McIntyre, see his Youtube channel for his vlogs. He inspires me to think ahead of the use of different exposures and the impact of highlights and shadows.

Have fun at scrolling through my pictures! If you would like to have a print of one of my pictures, please contact me!

Kind regards,

Eelco Bakker
