September 2012, update

Hi folks. I reprocessed (and replaced) the above shot this week to transfer it to canvas and large prints.

The wide angle lenses I use (back in 2011 I used the Sigma 10-20 on DX, now the Sigma 12-24 on FX) give quite some distortion, especially in the far corners. It's not always easy to get rid of it.

This time I went through the whole process again to correct the Ferry House, and bring it back to its true proportions.


Why am I doing this? Well, because I have my first exhibition Saturday, September 29. Where? Over here in this old Ferry house itself! :) Due to the 350th anniversary of the Hoge Brug in Overschie there's all kinds of festivities. One of them is the Ferry House opening its doors in the afternoon. The owner asked me to show my Overschie photo work over here, and I gladly agreed.




Everybody's welcome of course to meet and greet and you can win a nifty canvas too. At the end of the day I'm selling my large prints (50x75 and 30x45) at special prices.


I'll keep you posted. I'm busy with processing, flyers, prints and marketing the whole thing, so I'll be on and off. Ta!


November 2011, nice story...

The Ferry House (Veerhuis) which I regularly shoot in Overschie was sold to a new owner.

I got contacted by him recently, and was asked if I could deliver a blow-up of one of my recent shots he loved (see below), to put it on the wall of his new home. Of course I gladly accepted the assignment! Yesterday I brought a huge canvas of the image (see below) to the Ferry house (wasn't easy, it's located on an impossible spot!) which is heavily renovated at the mo'.


I got a 'guided tour' through the house (from 1747) and I found out that Anton Pieck had lived here, which was news to me. There was a huge stone in the living room wall saying "Anton Pieck, November 1982". You can find Anton Pieck's take on the Ferry house and church over here. It's really nice (from 1948). A very nice experience all-round! Thx Joost, succes with the renovation!
