A short cold break in the park in Ronse.
Aude was courageous enough to withstand the cold …

thank you for watching
My first 100% analog photoshoot. Shot with my Rolleiflex 3.5 TLR camera, on Kodak T-Max 400 film.
My model had taken the initiative to look for great clothing and accessories that fitted them well. Next to first time only analog, also first time with a model in a crowded place. Ik kind of enjoyed the public interaction.
I hope you like the images, thank you for watching, thank you Corry for being my enthusiast model on this drizzling day. Thank you Nathalie for the hairdo, thank you Hanna for the make up.
please come again soon, for more images with this and other analog camera’s
Another set of images taken on film.
The advantage of film is that it is slow paced. A lot of things need to be double checked. I still have a lot to learn, but with Aude I managed to get a decent amount of good shots. The weather was cloudy, so there where no hard contrasts and that helps. Shutter speeds need to be kept under 1/25s to get neat and sharp images, unless you are able to work on a tripod. For this shoot I partly worked with tripod, partly hand held.
These images ‘at the Castle’ are taken with my newly acquired Rolleiflex TLR with Carl Zeiss Planar 75mm f3.5 lens. I have the impression that the focus is a little more accurate than with the other Rolleiflex, and I manage to get a decently sharp image with the help of digital techniques. The images are taken on Kodak T-max 100 film. Click for bigger version.
The castle is the ‘Chateau d’Anvaing’, nicely surrounded by its water surface. There are some giant trees and remainder ornaments in the immediate surroundings.
Thank you for watching, soon I will post another set with Aude, taken with another Twin Lens Reflex that has at least 50 years: the Yashica 635.
Now that the days have turned dark and wet and cold, here in Belgium, time to look back at that great summer we had.

I got challenged by my brother to post a ‘nature’ picture each day for 5 days in a row. I have been photographing quite some landscapes in the last years, but my focus gradually shifted towards feminine beauty, so I decided to look for combinations of earlier landscape photographs and pictures of women that suited them well. These are the five images that made the series.
I kinda liked the excercise. I hope you like the pairings too.
have a nice weekend everyone!
… hidden in the deep black waters of the garden pool.
Thank you Jane, for being my beautiful model on this cold but sunny afternoon.
Thank you to the owner of this magnificent garden we could work in.
Thank YOU for watching this post.
All images Canon 5D II and Canon EF 24mm f1.4 L II at f4.0 ISO 100.
There’s a lot to come, so come again soon.
This image has an even more zen-look to it I think. The expression and the eyes closed make this image a witness to the models well being at that moment. Thank you Elisa, for being my model that day.
As I said yesterday, this image is taken at the exact same spot as the previous one. That is why I love working with available light, it gives you so much possibilities in a single space, …
