Stadspark Tree

I was always fascinated by this old tree that is standing there by it’s own. It looks very unique and one of a kind…The Sun was about to set behind the horizon but still strong enough to light up the scene and create those amazing long shadows that look so great. I hurried up to set my camera so I don’t miss the Sun. The light was perfect and so I started to experiment with exposures.

Thanks to my remote control for Sony NEX system, it made the whole capturing experience easier and saved me a lot of time. Before I used to wait 10 sec before taking another shot. Now with the remote control, it’s instant. I quickly change the exposure and hit the shutter…

I love this this tree, it’s my favorite in Stadspark and I always wanted to capture it in a beautiful light. Perhaps at the sunset…I hope you like this shot too. Please if you do, let me know and give it a thumbs up…

Today I was playing with Photoshop and was trying new things. I’ve created 20 new presets for following projects I’m working on. One of them is a timelapse sequence and this is one of the frame from it. I hope you like it. Please if you do, let me know and give it a thumbs up…

Koningsdag Stadspark

At first, I was a bit skeptical about capturing the whole thing because of people crossing from one side to the other. I thought about the calculations the software will have to make in order to figure it out the overlapping of these images. Taking a lot of stationary panoramas of the buildings, I wasn’t expecting that Photoshop will manage to create seamless panorama with so much of movements. None of the person in this image is cut or distorted, which is incredible, if you think that it’s made from 13 images.

The cool thing about this image I like a lot is that some people have been multiplied across the panorama. I think it creates amazing effect.

I hope you like this image, please let me know what do you think.

Dominicanenwal At Sunset

This is my favorite panorama so far! Not only for the challenging fact, but also for the colors that came out perfectly. (At least here on my computer) I didn’t need to do much when it comes to contrast and brightness. Just a few adjustments here and there and I’m totally in love with this shot. I was trying different exposures and came to realize that it’s better to underexpose these images even if there will be noise. I have experimented with +0.0, + 1.3, and -1.3 exposures and when I edited these images the ”-1.3” looked the best…The colors seemed richer and I really like it.

I hope you like this image too, please if you do give it a thumbs up and share it with your friends on FB…

I like to use long exposure photography just to differentiate from other people who takes photographs of the same things. I found few pictures online from this spot and all seem to be very similar. that’s why I like to try something different. One of the way is to do light trails. Simply set your camera to a longer shutter speed and wait until a car comes by. This creates an amazing effect and it makes your picture to stand out from others out there.

You don’t always need to wait for a car, you can use other sources of light. Torches, head lamps, colorful pocket lights, etc. Anything that produces light is great. After seeing some of the tutorials from Evan Sharboneau – Trick Photography And Special Effects I started playing with different kind of sparklers. They are awesome. As soon as I master some of the techniques and I feel confident to share it here, I will.

Back to this picture. I was going to town and took this way instead of taking Limbrichterstraat. I completely forgot that the other building opposite site has been filled with blue. As I came closer, I wasn’t sure if the light is going to be strong enough for the camera to pick it up on the school. After seeing the first shoot, I was impressed! I slowed down the shutter speed even more and while I was waiting I thought It could be great to wait for a car to pass by. It took about 5 minutes before I saw a car.

I really like the lighting on this picture and so I wanted to share it with you.

Sunset from Dominicanenwal

Yesterday I went for a walk, not even thinking about taking any pictures. Just wanted to clear my head and relax a bit. I walked around the city wall. The golden hour was approaching and I was getting closer to this spot. As I came from a corner, the sunset was at it’s best! I quickly grabbed my tripod, camera and took few exposures…I hope you like this image too. I think it came out nice…Please if you like it, give it a thumbs up.

Wow half way into the project!!! I can’t believe it how fast the time is going…You have been absolutely great!!! Supporting, sharing, likening and spreading a good word about this project everyday. Thank you all for being with me on this amazing journey…

Today I went for a dramatic look. I wanted a picture that would work well with a new and old architecture in one panorama. When I tried this idea for the first time, it ended up really boring. The sky was blue and it did not give me any feeling. I thought about some other variations, but nothing seemed to satisfy me.

Few days ago when a stormy clouds passed through Sittard, I thought about this place again. It was perfect!!!  The Sun find it’s way through the hole in the clouds and lighted up the scene like I have never seen before. I went there immediately and couldn’t wish for a better weather. I loved the drama…I took many shoots that day. This is one of them…I hope you like it, please if you do, let me know and give it a thumbs up.

Sunset from Limbrichterstraat

It didn’t look like anything amazing is going to happen. It was mostly cloudy and everything looked dull. I was behind the computer editing pictures when I saw an opening in the clouds with the Sun shining through. It looked promising, so I decided to go out. Few minutes later and the clouds were broken into pieces. Finally the Sun came through. I headed to the city center to capture some of the dramatic scene the clouds created. The conditions were getting better every second and so I hurried up. I arrived to the first place, took couple of shoots and run to the next one…

I took several pictures from many places that I like to show you. I guess I will slowly release them and see if you like them or not.

If you like this shot, please give it a thumbs up and let me know…
