Christelle, a model from Canada (travelling around the world) was last WE in Belgium. So we decided to take the opportunity to work with her during a workshop. She is already working since 2005 for a lot of photographers. She has a natural look.Next month we have a new model. I made the corrections with Lightroom.

In the past the Dutch photographer Erwin Olaf worked primarily for fashion and advertising companies. Nowdays he’s working on more personal projects and they’re all pretty mind-blowing. This image is from his Hope series..It’s beautiful!To create this captured moment of hope, Erwin used 5 lights.
Camera: Medium format, with Kodak EPP 100 transparency film and an 80mm lens. Set on atripod 11 feet back. Shot at 1/30, f11, ISO 100.
Lighting: Our man’s key light is a small softbox at f13 (+1/2 stop) over his head and slightly frontal aimed at his face. A medium softbox at f8 (-1 stop) is set high and one meter to camera left, also aimed at his head, providing fill. For our woman, a small softbox at f11 is over her head and also slightly frontal and just to her right. Another small softbox at f11 is positioned behind the wall the man is standing against and aimed at her face. A large octabank at f8 (-1 stop) is high and two meters to camera left. This provides fill for her body as well as the entire wall and left side of frame. The models kept very still with the slow shutter speed so Erwin could capture the wall sconce lighting (though it was enhanced in post).
Comments: The models were two members of the now-defunct German comedy troupe, The Supernaturals
Last Saturday we gave a workshop with Danika. She is Filipino but she lives already six years in Rotterdam. The location was a meetingroom somewhere in Antwerp. Nice location with a balcony and steal stairway.Next month we have a new model. Check the website http://workshops.elimage.be/
Buying a third-party flashgun from China is a good way to save money, but often it means missing out on features. Until today, no Chinese-branded speedlight has supported “High Speed Sync” (also known as FP Sync or HSS) — the rapid pulsing that permits photographers to use flash at shutter speeds over 1/250 second.
The YN-568EX from Yongnuo (a company based in Shenzhen) is the latest product in their Speedlite EX range, following the TTL-enabled YN-565EX and manual YN-560EX. The new YN-568EX has TTL (including wireless slave mode) for Nikon or Canon, manual adjustment, an optical slave mode and a large LCD control panel. It is also the first hotshoe flash from a Chinese company that can synchronise up to 1/8000 second on Nikon or Canon cameras.
Journalist Christopher Moloney had an epiphany while walking through Central Park one day, “Every day I walked past tons of locations from popular—and not-so-popular—movies,” he explains. He decided to start printing out stills from the films and comparing them to their real-life counterparts. “Since then, I’ve re-created more than 250 scenes around the city.” His work—which includes movies as varied as Midnight Run, The French Connection, and Shaft—can be found at his Web site, FILMography.

Since a year there is a store in Antwerp where you can buy everything about Lomography. I know there are several places where you can buy the items of Loma, Holga and Diana camera’s, but this is the official store where only these things are available. http://www.lomography.com/more/stores/antwerp
When I was 12, my first camera was a Diana.
