My Bio
Who am I?

Well, to be honest I don't exactly know the the answer to that myself. Just a guy who likes to try everything, learn everything, and have as much fun as possible whilst doing so.

I'm in college at the time of writing, doing a system administration course. Basically I learn to keep everything digital from exploding. Luckily it's not becoming a time vampire (yet), so I still have time for photography! Speaking of which....

...I bought a D90 after 4 painful months of shooting with a 8 year old compact which seemed to know what I wanted, and then do exactly the opposite, as slowly as possible. The crossover to a D90 was like going to heaven, but without the dying part. Seriously, this is great. I've since bought an external flash and the Sigma 70-200 F/2.8, and they've served me well!

As for my photography style, I like to call myself a Freestyle photographer. It's a mix of Freelance and my own style, because I do not emulate other people's styles. I just go out, try new things, and most of the time end up with good results.

If you wish to use my work for anything, or hire me for an event in the Netherlands drop me a line, I'm sure we can figure something out!

Live life, do your thing and have fun,

Citruspers

Cell phone series

Cell phone series

Today I uploaded some shots made with my cell phone. I deliberately decided to use my cell phone, simply because that's the camera I always have with me! I can have a 1600$ camera at home, but that will do me no good if I see a picture and don't have it with me! Chase Jarvis said it before me: the best camera is the camera you have with you! Besides, it's still about the photography, not the technology ;) So, here are 4 shots, all shot AND edited on my cell phone. Are these the best shots I ever made? Probably not. Do I like them? Yeah, I'm happy with them! ........ And for the few gearheads here, it's a Nokia N900 with a 5 megapixel cam

10K views and a rant

First off "yay", I hit 10K! Thanks to everyone, uncliding the folks from tweakers for visiting. Now that that's out of the way, it's time for the rant I think everyone on DA makes. People are getting too fake on me. There are many poeple following me, and yet I do not receive a lot of views (or faves for that matter). Now I can explain some of it. Let's face it, my recent winter work has been quite crappy. I think I had a small photography dip or something. anyhow, looking at my shots, I'm improving again. My point still remains: if you follow me, please comment. Even if you don't like the shot, please leave a comment. Tell me how to do b
