sorry for that. I promise you, you will see some more blogs very soon!
A lot of things happened in the meantime. Like an exhibition during Photo Shanghai, several publications in magazines, some new pictures made for the storytelling series, new BIG studio and a lot more. So I have been quite busy in the past half year.
For now I want to share the making of a picture (actually two pictures).
I had this picture in my mind for already a long time and wanted to include it in the storytelling series. click here for the series
But I was asked to make an exhibition picture for a very talented Dutch photographer who uses tulips for making his art. just have a look at his work: www.basmeeuws.com
So this time we used the same setting for making 2 almost identical pictures.
One for the exhibition of Bas Meeus and one for my storytelling series.
It always fascinates me how colours do change while using the wet plate process.
The umbrella was black, and the Tulips did have all kinds of colours.
Many thanks to Bas Meeuws for posing (and sorry for the wet clothes.... :) )
To Oogenlust for hosting their garden again.
To Paul Jongerius for helping me with the Tulips.
And to Ferry vd Vliet for being the model in this picture and the digital picture he made during the shoot
