Dutch hobby photographer. Loves bokeh, shallow depth of field, surrealistic landscapes, sunrises and sundowns, 21:9 aspect ratio, cinematic shots, macro pictures and nature shots. I do not prefer to use a tripod and I never use a flash. I only use a zoom lens on a trip/holiday and normally only shoot with primes at wide open aperture.
I like to collect old lenses to experiment with on my camera. Especially the lenses with their own character, like swirly bokeh and the Zeiss 3D pop effect. I really like the metal feel and focussing of the old lenses. However, I also use ''normal'' recent lenses. My main points for a lens are sharpness wide open and/or bokeh.
