My Bio

Dutch hobby photographer. Loves bokeh, shallow depth of field, surrealistic landscapes, sunrises and sundowns, wide aspect ratio's, cinematic shots and nature shots. I do not prefer to use a tripod and I never use a flash. At the moment I only use prime lenses.

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. However, I also use ''normal'' digital lenses. My main points for a lens are sharpness wide open and bokeh. My favourite focal length is around 50mm and I rarely use lenses not wide open, only landscapes I stop down.

I buy/sell, repair and use the old lenses. I only use old lenses on a digital body, I do not use film or anything. If it looks like it, it is just done in post production.

Here you see a marvelous view of a forest leading to a mountain. A clean sky, warm glow at the left and colder glow at the right. Beautiful mostly green coloured, different shades of green, trees. The framing is superb, using a wide frame really gives you a feeling of a wide landscape. Go check out https://www.deviantart.com/sirgerg His framing all over the board is superb with nice atmospheric landscapes. An interesting and perfectly composed portrait. A part of the cloth is in focus and another part creates beautiful depth of field. A really interesting and stunning looking picture. Cooler colours, and maybe overall a little de-saturated,

I always select my favourites very careful. A picture needs to tick a few boxes before I place it in my favourites. Here are a few of those favourites: https://www.deviantart.com/dobytek/art/no-title-738484739 A very straighforward picture. A person in the middle, centered, with a relatively uniform background. In terms of colour, the whole picture is in the same colour style. The marvelous thing about this picture I find the atmosphere. It looks like the person is standing in a (bomb)crater and the pieces are still flying around her. The pose is good, it has the perfect amount of depth of field and the whole picture has almost the same c

Learned something new today worth sharing I think. When viewing images in certain image view programs, the colours and so can be (way) off. For example I was looking in Microsofts Windows 10 standard image viewer and the pictures looked all different...

You have excellent framing and must travel a lot for some of the pictures you've taken.


Not besides the summer holiday and the forests near my home =P

:wow: :+devwatch: Thanks a lot winker Fella (Reaction)

I can't find to button to post a new journal or status update. I can only edit old posts and statuses. Please help me.

If you're on the app, there's a long, grey button underneath the Post tab that says 'Share a Status Update with your watchers'.

THANKS! It works!

I still wonder why I can't find the button anymore in the browser. Is that totally gone since the update or is it also hidden somewhere? I tried many times to find it, but in browser I can't find the journal and status button.
