A lot of people are very good at shredding apart Camera Brands online just based on specs. But do those even matter? Nowadays, whenever a new Camera gets released, the online Trolls start coming out of their caves ad start complaining that X doesn't do Y or that Y is better than Z. In real… Continue reading Your Camera doesn’t matter.
It is important that you expose your images as good as possible to achieve the best results. Even if you follow the 3 C's of photography, those being Contrast, Content and Composition, a wrongly exposed picture wont look good. If you overexpose, you loose your highlights. If you underexpose you loos your shadows. To alter… Continue reading The Exposure Triangle.
Contrast and Content are two of the most fundamental aspects of Landscape photography, but Composition is key. Without the proper composition, pictures just wont look good, so there are some rules to this. Just remember: rules are meant to be broken. At least in photography. Composition is what turns a snapshot into a photograph. But… Continue reading Composition is key.
For me, there are three fundamental aspects to Landscape Photography outside the Exposure Triangle. One of them is Contrast, and the other two are Content and Composition. In other words, the three big C. This post is about Content. Content is paramount. Without content, Contrast and Composition are worthless.

Most bring their camera,… Continue reading What’s in my camera bag.
I shoot RAW. And those files are big. So after a while, my 64GB SD card get's filled up. And since I don't want to buy new storage every other week, I use external hard drives to back up my photography. A San Disk Extreme Pro 64GB U3 SD card costs about 25 Euros on… Continue reading Backing up my photography.
Photography is an awesome, yet somewhat expensive hobby. Luckily, there are only two things you need to get if you want to take the step and upgrade from your phone: A camera and a lens. Most of the time, camera manufactures sell their camera with a more simple lens in a kit. That would be… Continue reading Primal photography.
I am a firm believer in that a photograph only truly comes to life once it is printed. But in my early days, a lot of those prints ended up in some random shoe boxes, never to be seen again. That has changed. I now put them up on my bedroom walls. To print my… Continue reading My wall of inspiration.
I really like to include cars and other things in my landscapes for scale. I usually take what ever is coming at me. But I definitely would love to include more classic cars in my photography. Classic cars are just beautiful and unique, unlike most modern cars which mostly look the same, no matter who… Continue reading I love classic cars.
