About hansvandam

Er is veel veranderd sinds ik op mijn 9e jaar mijn eerste camera kreeg. Een "clackje" met een heuse geelfilter erin gebouwd. Uitermate modern voor die tijd, zeker wanneer je bedenkt dat het toestel ook nog de keuze bood tussen een opnametijd van 1/25sec en 1/50sec. Je kon er werkelijk alle kanten mee op. De filminleg - een rolletje van 12 stuks 6x6 opnamen, waarbij achterop de camera in een rood venstertje de nummers verschenen - was nog het meest moeilijke. Wat was ik trots op mijn eerste foto die ik na een week kon ophalen bij de plaatselijke fotograaf waar de camera ook gekocht was… THE MAGIC WORLD !!!!! In de nieuwe digitale wereld lijkt alles maakbaar. De essentie blijven zoeken in een beeld en deze op een unieke wijze weergeven met de technische mogelijkheden van vandaag, vraagt een continue blijven volgen van ontwikkelingen. Er gaat echter niets boven ons magistrale oog dat zoveel meer kan zien dan een camera. I love it…. Een dag zonder fotografie is een dag niet beleefd…..

STAIRLING

Not every stairling is the same. Sometimes you come across things from ancient times. For example an old house from 1800.

Then you meet original castings along the stairs and it is worth photographing.

ENJOY!

SHAPES

I look into Barbara Hepworth’s sculpture. The pious radiate towards you. That suits a Sunday morning. Art makes you happy, although her life was not always happy. Besides the color of the stone, the shapes are of great beauty. Good to keep that up all your life. I like the shapes and lines. It really is a gem.

ENJOY!

LINES II

Undoubtedly it will be the work of an artist. All credits to him or her.

The line pattern here is also of unparalleled beauty. Sometimes you just miss it. It remains impressive when the sun seems to do her best.

ENJOY!

LINES

 

I love the play of lines in photography. It is not only a popular subject, but you look at photos differently too. Lines add an extra dimension to photos in general. You can also discover lines at De Hoge Veluwe National Park. They seem to be extra visible in a black and white display.

ENJOY!

D.O.F.

Much has been written about Depth of Field in photography. Applied here.

I like shallow depth of field because it isolates the subject from the rest of the photo. It gives you the opportunity to play with what you see, where the eye is drawn to.

It is one of the possibilities that makes photography so much fun.

ENJOY!

SHADOWS

Nobody is waiting for shadow in real life. Like suddenly a cloud slides in front of the sun and the temperature immediately drops a few degrees. Of course it will be delicious in warm regions. Shadows are indispensable in photography. It gives depth to everything. The most beautiful is of course a diffuse light where the shadows are still visible, but here on the wall where the shadow is visible it is also a grateful subject.

ENJOY!

CHAIRS

First the design. I thrive on that. Immediately I see the image in black and white in front of me.

The age of course and the shadows too. That pattern in the wood!

All in all a gem of a ranking, just somewhere in a restaurant. A photographic present, that’s how it feels.

And you have to take it right away before it’s gone. That’s how it often happens in photography. If you see it, photograph it. Before you know it’s gone. Later on you can take another good look.

I must have made more than one.

ENJOY!

ROCKY VIEW

 

Looking over the sea always has something magical. It awakens something in you. Often something familiar. Something you always wanted to do. Often when you see an island in the distance. Something unknown evokes sensation and you become curious about what could be there. The elements of nature always shower you with a form of purity.

ENJOY!

RUSTY AND SOLID

“Everything here is all rusty,” he said. I thought it looked solid and enjoyed the colors.

Especially the green appealed to me.

Apparently it is something that was used in agriculture. In any case, it looked solid.

A MESS

“It’s a mess”, he said.

The colors of the fallen leaf appealed to me.

It all suited the environment well.

ENJOY!
