Who am I?
I am just another one of those wannabe photographers that roams the internet. I do have a rather busy personal life which does not allow for taking many photo’s. I like to take pictures and share these with you. The pictures I will select mean something to me, they are either a fond memory or the picture itself is worth the upload. Feel free to comment.
How it all started
I started with a crappy Sony Cybershot but this camera did not really work that well. It had problems with low light situation and the majority of my pictures were blurry. Oww and it devoured batteries. It was only natural to upgrade to something more up to date, a more fancy camera, still small. The notion to walk around with a big camera was not appealing to me. Hence I bought a Panasonic Lumix FX37. A buy that I do not regret. It served me well during my travels, small, quick, fast and good battery.
Just before my big trip to Russia the father of a friend of mine borrowed me his dSLR, a Canon EOS 400D. It was a big one, a size I do not prefer but heck why not and took it with me. In the beginning it felt awkward to shoot with this camera. Too big, I did not feel comfortable but that feeling disappeared with the amount of pictures taken. In the end I shot 2500 pictures in a period of 3 weeks.
When I got back home I was sold. I needed to have a camera and it had to be a dSLR. After extensive searching and trials I opted for the Nikon D90. I cannot really explain well why I chose this model but the reviews and the images I have seen where very good. Thus on the 18th of november 2009 I bought a Nikon.
Ah well, sometimes you walk past something and you stop. You don’t know why, but when you take a closer look it strikes you even more. You can’t put your finger on it. There is something, something that catches your eye. Something which you would like to tell your friends about. But telling alone will not just do justice, a picture is even better. There must be a reason why the saying a picture says more than a thousand words exists.
I want my pictures to show something, to express an emotion. I want that it means something, that it touches you. I do not expect them to change anything but if the reaction it calls is: “wow, wished I was there” or “would love to go there and see it myself”, well then; then I am happy.
