Shoot Close

The first time I actively used the the WiFi options of my OMD-EM10. I shot the following shots all via triggering with my phone over WiFi. You can come real close and just looking at your phone and shoot.

Reading and Studying

Shot a couple of pictures in the Central Book Library in The Hague. A vibrant, though quiet, environment. A lot of people enjoying the books. And also a lot of youngster working together on their homework. And also some just doing nothing and looking around. A place to be quietly around people.

Japan Market Leiden 2015

The Japan Market (Japanmarkt) is an annual fair organized by Japanmuseum SieboldHuis. The event is a festive commemoration of the Japanese emperor’s visit to the Rapenburg in Leiden in the year 2000. I took some pictures of the cosplayers. Kept them in colour, though did desaturate them. On my Flickr site I will publish these (most likely) in black and white.

Feature Request for OMD-EM10 MkII

For street photography its important that you can stay unnoticed. Therefor unwished sounds and light (when doing e.g. photography during evening/night) should be avoided. What I miss on my current OMD-EM10 is the following two features:Silent Shutter Mode;Ability to switch of the back screen completely;The shutter of the OMD-EM10 makes quite a bit of sound. Especially if you put it to continuos mode. As such it can disable you staying stealth. Something similar is true for the back screen. Besides that it also consumes power it also can draw attention in dark/evening conditions.…

Photosites

So what photo sites to use. There are a lot of choices. I currently have some four photo sites in uses: Famous Flickr, 500px, Instagram and Facebook Page.I keep gravitating to the Flickr site. It has a very active community and lots and lots, and I mean lots of pictures.

{{ content.title }}{{ content.caption }}

Then right after that you have the beautiful site of 500px. Also a lot of pictures. Not so many "family" pictures. Feels a bit more professional oriented.

And off course Instagram. Instagram has a…

New Street Photography Book Published

Published a book on street photography. This time I also included not only pictures but also background information on gear, exposure settings, guidelines like sunny 16 rule and zone focussing. I created the book in Apple Pages and converted it to PDF to upload to blurb.com. That is quite a hassle as you need to be very careful and precise on page settings etc. The book is available as physical book, as e-book and also via Apple's iBook store. The book can be found via: nl.blurb.com/b/6124772-my-s...

Perhaps the Bookwright tool might be more handy…
