Frans Lanting’s excellent composition

Today, I want to show you a photo that was taken (not by me) but by someone I know for a very long time and respect for his magnificent work. 

His photographs are so good that I've been scratching my head to find out how he does it for years and still can't seem to figure it out.

Here is one his photos I found super interesting. 

Photo: Frans Lanting - http://www.lanting.com/

It is a perfect example of well executed composition that is dead on muney.

I love it!

And I wanted to show you what a great composition with leading lines look like when shot by a professional photographer Frans Lanting.

The good news is that Frans put together a pretty extensive training called "The Art Of Seeing" where he goes deep into how to spot compositions like in the photo above and deconstructs his thinking process so you can easily understand it and learn from it in just couple of days. 

I can tell you firsthand that it's not easy to spot a good composition. It takes a lot of research, patience and determination... and sometimes you might feel disappointed and even frustrated.  

But with Frans help, it is like having the best of the best professional standing next to you and showing you how it's done. 

It can't get any better...

And if you get stuck or forget anything, you can re-watch these amazing lessons and study them at your own pace.  

Anyway...

If that's something of interest to you, then click on the link below and get your hands on the course. 

I know you won't regret it...

How do I know that? 

Because it was one those life changing course I went through myself and I must say that I've learned more in two weeks than in the last 3,5 years when I was trying to learn by my own. 

That's why. 

Here is where you get it...

Which of these two photos shall I pick?

Please… look at these two images below and tell me which is better.

I keep looking at them and can’t decide which one to include in my new book.

 

 

There is an interesting story behind each of them I’ll tell you about later.

But for now, I would love to know what do you think?

Just hit reply and let me know…

I won’t go anywhere… (patiently waiting for your reply)

Best,

Libor Bednarik…

P.S. The problem is that I’ve got space for only one photo.

It is a last photo and I can’t decide. Perhaps with your help I can finally finish the book and send it to the printing company.

Talking about the printing company, there are some amazing designers helping me with it.

Isabelle is one of them. She’s so kind, so helpful, willing to go that extra mile to make sure you guys get the best quality possible.

I believe, I’m dealing with the best printing company in Netherlands.

We agreed on the size of the book which is going to be 310×265 mm. This means, it’s going to be way bigger than my previous book “Sittard365 – One Year Photography Project” I published in 2014…

…which also means much better viewing experience and even higher quality.

In 2014, I chose 135g MC paper which is a fantastic paper but this year I’m going for the best quality possible with 200g MC museum quality paper.

I can’t wait to get my hands on this one-of-a-kind book.

Anyway,

As soon as the book is my hands (the first test) I’ll cancel the 30% discount and the book will go back to the original price, so if you haven’t ordered yet, now it’s the best time.

So, here is the truth:

If you want to take better photos, especially in low light situations like sunrise, sunset, or at the blue hour, you better have the following:

Tripod, good camera and fast lens…. and of course the most important from them all, knowing what you’re doing!

Because if you don’t know what you’re doing, none of the above will matter.

Not even the best camera in the world is going to take the photos for you. It will help, but I’m sure I’d do better with any basic, entry level DSLR.

Why?

Because I know how to spot great compositions, light, and I know how to set up the camera for the best result.

Luckily, there is an amazing course you can get your hands on and start learning immediately, if that’s what you desire.

It’s from Marc Muench and it’s called Landscape Photography.

I went through this training few years ago and I must say it’s really good!…

…and that’s because the information is pure, specific and doesn’t overlap.

One thing I used to hate a lot was when I bought a new course and realized that a lot of the information was overlapping with a course I bought from another photographer.

And so… Landscape Photography from Marc Muench is different and very unique.

Anyway…

If you want to level up with your photography, Marc will give you a lot of “aha” moments and put you on the right path… and answer your questions.

But it isn’t cheap…

It’s more than I like to pay.

But It’s worth every penny!

It’s that good!

Sittard-Geleen – New Bicycle Pedestrian Bridge

Couple of months ago, a new pedestrian bridge was built in (Sittard-Geleen) connecting Sanderbout with the south west of Sittard.

As you can read it here “http://www.zja.nl/en/page/3703/the-bicycle-and-pedestrian-bridge-sittard-geleen“, the bridge simplyfies the contact with the city’s Fortuna stadium and Sports area Limburg…

It’s a blast cycling on the new path since there wasn’t any before and the only access to the Stadium was by going around.

But anyway…

Right after it was completed I took few photos of the bridge when the light was the best.

Hope you like the photo…

Greetings…

And if you can’t find any you like, then stick around anyway as I’m uploading new photos on this blog almost every day.

Sunrise In Sittard Stadspark

I’ve been living in Sittard for almost 6 years now… so I kind of know where to go if I want to take photos like the one you see above.

Sittard Stadspark is my favorite location to go to. There is everything down there.

From time to time you get to see beautiful sunrays when there is enough morning fog in the air. If you live around, go there early in the morning for a walk…

…and don’t forget to take your camera.

Anyways…

Yesterday I got some people calling me asking if I do prints on canvas.

Yes I do… If you go to: https://sittard365.pixieset.com/printstore/

and choose any photo you like, you’ll be presented with two printing options.

Either you can have it printed on a premium quality paper called… Fuji Professional DPII Glossy Pearl

Or on canvas in various sizes…

totally up to you…

Here is the link: https://sittard365.pixieset.com/printstore/

Anyway…

I took this photo because it looked peaceful and I can imagine to hang this photo in a room where there is lot of light, a place where one can relax. If you have a place like this, then this photo could be perfect fit…

Just saying…

Actually I might print this one myself as this is one of my favorite photos from Stadspark.

All the best…

Every year I keep visiting my favorite places along the Maas River.

There is cycling path that goes all the way to Maastricht which I really like.

This morning was super foggy with the Sun barely shining through.

Perfect atmosphere.

Time To Have Fun

This morning I was in the Ligne Library working on my photography project for one advertising company in Amsterdam.

They sent me an email asking if I can shoot ten photos of Sittard-Geleen and capture the historic sights.

I have a pretty descent archive of photos from Sittard-Geleen, so I knew that this is going to be a piece of cake.

And it was…

I’ve done my research, asked few questions and based on that I picked ten photos pretty quickly.

I sent them the license agreement and was on my way to do my own things.

MTB bike trip to Belgium and then overnight stay in Monshau.

Yeah!

What can be better than that…

Enjoy life, my friend…

Best,

Libor Bednarik

P.S. When you know these 5 powerfull techniques Frans is sharing in his magnificent course…

http://sittard365.com/the-art-of-seeing

You can literally say goodbye to frustrations… I mean it!

Give Your Photos Life!

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” — Don McCullin

So true!

You can literally take thausands of images but if none of them has certain wibe or feeling, it’s unlikely anyone will connect to it…

Shoot with your heart not your eyes…

Best,

Libor…

P.S. Give your photos life, so that people stop when they see your images… If it’s while they scrolling through their Facebook feed or on Instagram.

You could make your photos stand out if you follow these simple techniques Ben Willmore teaches in his amazing training…

Here is a link to it…

*************

About the photo:

I took this photo in Limbricht village on the way to Born. It was a cold, frozen morning with the blue sky. I was waiting for the sunrise while taking few photos around…

 

Chase your dreams

Chase your dreams! – unknown

 

I took this photo out of complete spontaneity without any planning…

And I hope it’ll make you realize how beautiful sunrise can be…

Don’t miss the next one…

Go for a morning walk and I guarantee you’ll come home rejuvenated, energized and ready to face the day…

All the best…

Libor Bednarik

P.S. If you want to know how some of the best photographers in the world use Lightroom to organize their images and make their photos look amazing, then this Lightroom training Ben Willmore put together is going to be the most important you have ever seen…

http://sittard365.com/ben-willmore-lightroom

So True

“The best images are the ones that retain their strength and impact over the years, regardless of the number of times they are viewed.”

================

The video training that Ben Willmore put together could literally turn the shittiest photo into a master piece.

Ever happened to you that you came home with crappy images? Happened to me million times.

So what do you do?

You watch the training to the teeth. You learn every little trick he shares and then apply it to your workflow.

In fact, he has an amazing trick you can use right away. This simple technique will take your images to another level.

I went all in and created my own workflow based on this.

Your brain is going to burst out of excitment and in the first week you’ll be ahead of most photographers who really don’t know what they’re doing.

Anyway…

Here is the training…
