A Dutch nerd studying for application development. Photography is a hobby, but I like it, along with biking through the countryside, it takes your mind from your computer. If you look through my gallery you will see that I mostly do nature photography.

- Nikon 1 V1
- 10-30mm lens
- 30-110mm lens (main lens)

- Lightroom 4

Hi all, it's been a month since the last journal so here's what I've been up to lately.

In general
It was a slow time this end of the year, it was pretty cloudy the whole time, which put a big dent into the image quality I could shoot with, although I did make a few good photo's I've yet to see if I will upload them to the site. I really anticipated that there would be snow up here, but sadly rain was the only thing that graced the skies...

The 30th also marked my 22nd birthday. Because I haven't been into photography for too long, people have gifted me some really awesome gifts:

- A lens hood for my 10-30 Nikkor 1 lens
- A flash unit for my nikon 1 V1
- A manfrotto carbon hybrid monopod
- A Canon slingbag (while I ironically own a nikon camera)
- And last but not least a set of beer glasses and a beer gift set

The bag is perfect for my small camera and I can store a lot of things in it. Because it can be adjusted like any camera bag, I can arrange the space neatly to make everything fit snugly. The monopod works like a charm, and I don't need to put any spacers onto it either, so that's awesome as well. I've used it to take some photo's of the fireworks and it worked really well to stabilize my shots while sitting down. The flash unit also works like a charm and it is very handy to be able to twist and turn it to get the ricochet the flash just right, because the camera is struggling the most while shooting indoors.

I will most probably upload fireworks photos for a little while when I'm done editing. I spent an hour shooting, resulting in 800 photos, so it is going to take a while. After that, I'm going back to primarily nature photography, cross my fingers that the temperature will still drop this winter and hope for some really nice snow and ice to make for some nice backdrops.

I wish you all a very happy 2014 once more!

Welcome to Rising-Artists! RA is dedicated to helping and supporting beginning to intermediate artists by hosting a number of weekly events, including weekly features, feedback corner, critiques and more! We're (At least I am!) so glad to have you here on board, so if you have any questions feel free to note or comment us! Tight Hug 

(This is where Lawli gets bored of all that boring, absolutely mundane stuff and elopes with her nonexistent boyfriend to Jerusalem-Or Grandma's basement' where they hold mock wedding ceremonies and dance the tango. The Ultimate Question: (Or so they say) Coke :coke: emoticon replacement or PepsiPepsi ? )

P.S. Also, I insist on a cookie  from Granny Simply's cookie jar, filled with wonders never seen before! *Pumps fist in air*
P.P.S. :happybounce:  These days it seems like everyone's from some foreign land, so I'm a bit overwhelmed. The Netherlands? Awesome!

Thank you for the welcoming comment.

I really like how rising-artists operates, and I think there will be quite some participation from my part. I'd love to tell you how I noticed you guys... But, I forgot.

Anyways, the ultimate answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe and everything would be: 42! coca-cola! I actually don't really know what the deal is with calling it coke, because it's also the name of drugs, but just me being a silly foreigner.

Anyways, I'm indeed Dutch, and there are quite a few Dutch people to be found, if you know where to look. For example: the very popular nature photographer thrumyeye is a Dutch person.

No problem, and it's awesome if you'll be able to participate.

Ah, I think it's just me being American and an idiot. I actually had no idea coke meant that...

thrumyeye? Wow, they are really awesome photos. And really, you're the 5th person from the Netherlands that I welcomed today.
