Fotoserie 07

Vandaag vond ik het wel weer eens tijd voor een fotoserie. Een niet te lange serie want deze bestaat maar uit twee foto's. Het waren de beste foto's dus ik dacht waarom zou ik deze serie langer willen maken..

De foto's zijn gemaakt tijdens een wandeling door een mooi gebied vlak bij onze ouders. En het is inderdaad al een tijdje geleden :)
Kijk en geniet!

Lovely raindrops

Regenachtige dagen hebben zo ook hun mooie kanten. Zie de foto's hieronder om de charme van regendruppels te ontdekken.

Rainy days do have a beautiful sight as well. See the photos below to discover the charm of rain drops.

Walk through the fog

Waar denk je aan wanneer het winter is? Vast aan donkere, ongure dagen waar je niet naar buiten wil. Maar gelukkig zijn er ook mooie winterse taferelen die prachtige foto's opleveren. Naast de sneeuw, draagt mist ook tot het maken van prachtige foto's!.

Laatst hadden wij ook zo'n moment. We werden wakker, keken naar buiten en zagen bijna niks!  Toen dachten we; dit willen wij vast leggen! Warm aangekleed maakte we een lange wandeling door Rotterdam Noord en onze camera's hadden het maar druk.

Zie de foto's hier beneden om geïnspireerd te raken.

When you think about winter, you often think about cold and dark days. These days you don't want to go outside. Luckily there are also beautiful days with snow or fog of which you can make beautiful photos!

So here is proof that it's not always bad with the weather in winter. We woke up, looked outside en saw almost nothing! It didn't take long for us to decide that we had to capture this!

See the photos below to get inspired!


Inspiration: walk around de Kraaijenbergse Plassen

Een mooie, zonnige en koude zondag maakt het altijd tijd voor een inspirerende wandeling. Zo'n zondag was het ook begin januari, dus warm aangekleed en Floris in de startblokken startten wij onze wandeling bij de Kraaijenbergse Plassen in Linden (Noord Brabant). 

Velen die in Cuijk en omgeving wonen kennen de Kraaijenbergse Plassen als de zwemplek om op warme dagen een frisse duik te nemen. Maar in de afgelopen jaren is er veel bijgekomen, en zijn er nu in totaal 9 plassen te vinden. Met een totaal aan 15,5 km aan wandelpaden weet je zeker dat je een goede wandeling kan maken, en natuurlijk voor de liefhebbers ook kan fietsen.

Mocht je benieuwd zijn geworden en woon je niet zo ver van Linden af kijk dan eens op www.kraaijenbergseplassen.nl en zie wat je er nog allemaal meer kan beleven!

A nice, sunny cold winterday is always a good time for an inspiring walk. Begin January was it time to take this walk. We dressed up warm, and took Floris for our walk to the Kaaijenbergse Plassen in Linden (Noord Brabant).

Tijdens onze wandeling zagen we ook nog wat schapen, altijd coole beesten! En natuurlijk mag Floris ook niet gemist worden!

Instagram Update nr 20

A new week, a new update with a lot of nature and animals. Two things that always inspire us and we never get tired of!

Beauty is everywhere

I love looking around and noticing something and realizing how beautiful it actually is.
I kind of forgot that I had these roses. When I got them they where white, but I like them better this way. And I wonder how long they will stay this way.

Camera lenses for your iPhone

A while ago I saw a blogpost about camera lenses for your smartphone, as soon as I read it I went online to find them.
On Ebay I found this great and really cheap lens set, click here to go to the seller.

This is what you get: 3 lenses: wide angle, macro and fish eye (macro lens can be detached from wide-angle), 2 lens covers, 6 detachable magnetic rings and 2 magnetic key chains. 

This is what you get: 3 lenses: wide angle, macro and fish eye (macro lens can be detached from wide-angle), 2 lens covers, 6 detachable magnetic rings and 2 magnetic key chains. 

Here are some examples that I made with the macro lens. I think it works really well, it works only from up close to the object. But you really get some nice little details.

The wide angle only works when the macro lens is attached. And the photos below are the kind of photos you can make. You get a lot more in one photo when you are using this lens. On the left you see a photo without the wide angle, on the right the wide angle is used.

And the last one is the fish eye lens, it gives a really cool and funny effect to your photos. See below for some examples. Be sure to put lens on in the right way, otherwise the corners can get a bit of.

I really like this set and I'm going to use it a lot! And for only 4,99 (dollars) and free shipping you can't not buy it!

Instagram Update nr 17

A lovely sunny week, but also a lot of rain. Which ment a lot of beautiful clouds hence pretty cloud photos. Not only is the way they look inspiring but also that you never know what will come out.

On sunday Astrid was having dinner in Nijmegen at 'de Firma', a really nice restaurant located near the river "Waal". In the time she was sitting there a beautiful array of clouds passed by.

Is it a dream or a nightmare? Maybe the way you feel today could decide that.

The beauty is on the flowers

During my walk today I got really inspired by all the insects on the flowers. They were everywhere, busy as bees. It's amazing to see the focus they have when they go from flower to flower. At first I wanted to photograph some flowers but when I saw these insects my focus switched to them. Luckely they're always on the flowers! Most people find them a bit scary but if you look closely you can see the beauty in them.

Instagram Update nr 12

While our manifesto is coming along nicely, we are thinking about new projects. What themes to use or maybe there's something interesting a photoseries we can use. We are figuring that out in the next couple of weeks. 

But first our instagram update of last week!

 

Clouds are very interesting! How they come in all their different forms and colors. You would think that you've seen them all, but that never happens.

Nothing is what it seems. A photo with an effect that makes it more than just a view over the water.
