Last July my family, aunt, uncle and cousins from Canada came over to the Netherlands on holiday. To celibrate their 40th wedding anniversary my aunt and uncle arranged a BBQ for the entire family. As one of the presents my other aunts and uncle arranged a folk dance group to perform old dance and songs. The dance group, from the Salland region, wore traditional costumes. Before their performance I took some pics of the dance group. All pictures are taken with the 50mm F1.8 lens and are processed in Lightroom. Enjoy!
One of the photography course subjects was night photography. Armed with tripods we strolled down the Jordan area in Amsterdam to shoot some nice pics.
Some months later I joined a Flickr meet Amsterdam trip. With 6 guys (Stewart, Jeroen, Rod, Vit and Arjen) we started walking in the Amstelstation area, after this we took the subway to the Waterloo square and walked to the Rembrandt square where we ended the trip with some beers.
Shot at the new Central Station Bus Terminal during the 3rd Scott Kelby World Wide Photo Walk, Amsterdam location. The HDR pictures have been created from 3 RAW files and are processed in Photomatix, Photoshop and Lightroom.
The last couple of weeks I’ve been using my 50mm lens somewhat more. I’ve tried to use it at F1.8 to get the biggest Bokeh effect. Let me know what you think!
