Tweetup

2010, Photography


While gaining more strength in my back, a couple a photographers from my local area arranged a small meet up on Twitter, a tweetup. It was a nice opportunity to get out again for the first time photographing and meeting other photographers (@ALF_fotografie @Henkie21 @pixellaar @snadaa88).

Even though it was mostly cloudy, the light was pretty smooth and pretty. Different ages, different experiences, different styles of photography, and the wonderful connection that we all enjoy photography. No gear crap, but just having fun. This was a great and fanatic group.

We photographed in an area where I used to come very often in the past, but I feel my photography has changed. I used to do a lot of landscapes, but nowadays people, emotions, and details matter much more to me. I feel that I want to capture the human presence around us. I think we are nature too, even though we don’t seem to care.

Next time we want to hit the street and shoot there, the human conditions. Instead of the rural to the city for street photography.

  1. Great pictures of a wonderful day. Thank you very muh for the great day. Love the pictures what you have made (it’s me on the second picture 😀 )

  2. It’s good that we change and hopefully progress. I really like the photo with the reflection of the two cows that are framed between the two banks of a canal. It’s a unique interpretation of a quite normal Dutch landscape.

  3. As a regular visitor of your blog, I’m often impressed about your creativity. You prove, it’s the photographer, not the camera.

    I really like the picture with the cows upside down, reflected in a characteristic Dutch landscape.

  4. Your intrepid nature had inspired me to take up an invitation to join a friend on a photography adventure in our local city a few weeks back.

    Another friend of his joined us and during the course of conversation we discovered that he and I live in the same community. We are now planning some excursions of our own.

    Thanks for being inspirational Wouter.

    1. You’re welcome. The interaction is fun, although I usually take a lot less photographs when I shoot with other photographers. Less focused and occupied with different things. Chitchat and that kind of stuff.
