Fashion with the Credo60 and Nadine PartIII

In the final part of this series some outside shots with natural light.

Shooting with the Credo60 in natural light is a really nice thing to do.
As mentioned before in the previous posts about the Credo60, the display is a huge improvement over the previous leaf digital backs but also the speed in which you can work is something I really love, even on the card there is no buffer, meaning you can just keep firing until the card is full (well I think you can, I never tried it but let’s say that if there IS a buffer you will probably NEVER ever fill it up), and with a speed of 1 second per frame there is a really nice flow to the shots. It’s quick enough to nail some shots where the wind is a vital part of the story like in this series and it’s still “slow” enough for the model to get into her “groove”.

Fashion with the Credo60 and Nadine Part I

Last Friday it was time for me to really test out the new Leaf Credo 60.
First of all let me say that the image quality is truly stunning and without any doubt a step up from the AptusII series, but most of all I’m very happy with the display and the extra speed in boot up and shooting. I also did some parts outside and it’s a delight to be able to use the screen on the back of the Credo, it’s bright, zooming goes quickly and the quality is great.

For the first part (I will divide this series up in parts) I want to give you the tip to really explore your surrounding areas. People that know me a bit better know I’m always planning some time during to day for some workouts, that can be rowing, cross trainer or biking. With the biking part I always try to also scout new locations and what is better than just drive around your area and find new interesting locations.

Episode 1 of the DOORhof is always open

Today is an exciting day, I just finished uploading the very first full length episode of our brandnew videopodcast called “The DOORhof is always open”.
ADDED : You can now also find the podcast in the iTunes store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/the-doorhof-is-always-open/id542659551?l=en


I’ve been the guest on many videopodcasts and always loved the way you could interact with the guests, the audience etc. but having my own was just an idea that stayed in my mind and I never thought about doing it. However as our company grows we also have some more help with editing and filming, meaning I don’t have to do everything myself any more, and this made me realize that making my own video podcast now would be possible.


The first thing you have to start thinking about is topics…. I don’t just want to sit there and stare into a camera and mumble something about stuff you guys already read on my blog, so I decided to choose different topics per video podcast, and because you already know (via the blog) what I do and think I thought it would be cool to have some guests with me each podcast. Now this means we have to come up with ideas, and this is were you guys can play a role, let me know what you want and I’ll add it to the list and who knows. If you’re an expert on analogue photography, landscapes, architecture etc. and want to invite me over to learn me (and the viewers) about your passion also just contact me and we will try to plan a visit (preferable in the Netherlands).


For the first podcast I took a topic that I’ve grown very fond off over the last few months, Streetphotography.
You will see 2 small videos on street photography I did, a store visit where we visit our friends at CameraNU.nl and a photocritique by me and 2 of the guys from CameraNU.nl

The sound we are working on, and will improve.
Many thanks by the way to Aletta Armee for designing our Logo and leaders (YOU ROCK).

Article for digital photography school

I don’t do a lot of guestblogs at the moment because simply put time is limited (very limited). But sometimes I make an exception, and so it happened that I did this blog post for the Digital Photography School. It’s my 3 tips to become a better photographer, of course there are many many more, but these 3 will make a good start 🙂
