Back home

Back home again after an intense month.
We started the month off with the workshops and the introduction of the Sony Alpha99 in Dubai, a beautiful country with great photo opportunities and nice people, after Dubai we were home for little less than a week before we left for New York for the live video webinar at the MAC group for Leaf/Mamiya (soon you can find this online), working with Joe Brady during this webinar was a delight, I love it when you have two presenters because you can bounce back and forth which makes the epxerience in my opinion a lot more interesting. We filmed several interviews for our videowebpodcast “The DOORhof is always open” during the webinar including some very interesting insights about light meters  and of course Joe himself, but we also visited my good friend Rick Sammon which I also dragged in front of the camera to share some of his tips from the kitchen table.


After the webinar Annewiek and I got to spend some (I think well earned) free time in New York, and I have to tell you New York is one of my favorite cities to just walk and shoot some street photography. Thanks to Google+ we were shown around by some great local photographers and even got to see the devastating results of Sandy which will be embedded in my mind forever :(, on the final day in New York we got to spend a good part of it with one of my absolute heroes Jay Maisel

Some of Nadine

Today some images from Nadine.
These were shot during our Advanced II workshop.
During this workshop there is always a “challenge” for me.
It’s a workshop all about compositing, meaning I shoot the model on a neutral background and while she changes her outfit my “challenge” is to find a new background, cut the model out and make the complete composite.


This also means that the results I’m showing from these workshops are always a little bit rough around the edges 😀 but I think they are still fun to post.
