On saturday the 23th of november my daughter and i visited the expo NASA: A Human Adventure. The Jaarbeurs in Utrecht was hosting this expo. We made a day out of it going by train and have dinner in Hoog Catherijne afterwards. It was a great expo wich i can recommend to anyone with a interest for space or just basic human history. I brought the E-P1 along with the lumix 14mm. Well the camera was struggling to catch enough light, all is at 1600 iso with max aperture f4 to get steady shots with an compromise on dof. All is in black and white, the higher iso noise is better camouflaged in b&w. Again not my best, but as a serie it should provide an interesting look into this expo.
This blogpost consists of the NASA part of the expo wich is shown around the world. For the dutch there was an extra expo about ESA. I will show some pictures of this in a next blogpost.
I took the Olympus E-P1 with me with the 14mm Lumix mounted. It was a grey day today so i didn’t expect good photos wich came to be the truth, still i think i wanna show you the black and white series i shot today. Different kind of stuff and i hope it’s watchable. Sooc shots here, only added the border. The E-P1 is still amazing in my humble opinion.
I have been at this ‘urbex/rural’ location before, Always wanted to go back. This evening it was darker as i hoped around the Hotel so had to do with iso 1600. The decision to make an B&W with toning came up in 3 seconds. So home again i loaded the files on my pc and started editing. Made a preset in Silver efex 2 wich i liked. I have shown a few of the serie on my Flickr account shortly after the visit, now decided to share all on my blog for you to see.
Lot’s of stories about ghost’s can be found on the internet, funny it is that we both felt like being watched shooting this series of photo’s, even the dog seemd spooked. You tell me how does that happen, because one reads about ghost’s and your mind plays with you, or………Anyways i do like my photo’s. Did manipulate some of them because the graffiti contained pure racistic and fascistic signs or remarks wich i really don’t agree with.
