MBI Beton, 2014 (warning large serie)

August 2014 we visited MBI Beton, a legit visit and one of our first urbex trips. This serie has been on my hard drive for a long time now. I decided to share the full serie on my blog. Flickr or Facebook don’t seem appropriate for this size serie.
This series is completely shot with my Nikon D90 + 35mm 1.8 DX. One of the last times i shot such a big serie with it. I also owned my Olympus E-M10 those days but shot with both camera’s and did an in camera black and white serie with the D90 35mm combo. All that is edited is some straightening on the ooc jpeg files and the border.
Why publish it? Well i have personally always liked this serie a lot, not really an explanation for it but today i needed to share it.
The D90 and 35mm are history, both sold to invest in new gear.. Also Urbex has become my main shooting style now. This blog was neglected for a long time so now time to use it again.
The serie is shown randomly.

Hotel Dullemond, Laag Soeren.

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.

Used my Nikon D90 with 35mm 1.8dx.

Autumn…

Leaves, colorfull and ready to become obsolete are great subjects for photography. Every year i look for them again. I love the colors that appear in autumn a lot! All shot with the 50 1.4 on my D90. LR 5.2 was used to develop the raw files.

I want to ride…

Bicycles, a dutch thing? For one it are great objects for photography. These are in my garage. Details shots taken with my D90 and 50mm 1.4g af-s. All post processing is done using Lightroom 4. I almost never use CaptureNX anymore. Lightroom i like! Hope you enjoy these shots!

I have received a lot of new stuff, some new camera’s and film etc, previous post is with elitechrome i got. Now 3 new slr’s bodies with m42 mount. The Petri TTl seems the screwmount is bad, but the Mamiya MSX 500 seems in working order and curently filling a roll Kodak color gold 200 asa with it. Lens is my 29mm 1:2.8 pentacon. The Revueflex SD-1 seems in working order to but don’t want to many camera’s filled with film at once!

Well till next post!

Saturday 8th december. Didnt have much time to take out the camera into the snowy world. Thes photo’s are made when i walked the dog in my neighborhood. Used my D90 with the 35mm 1.8 dx attached. Capture NX 2 was used for conversion to black and white.

Grass

It has been a while since i posted at this blog. It was time again. Have been busy, but flickr kept on going. I mounted my Kiron 105mm 1:2.8 on the D90 and went into the garden, found this grass wich i aimed my macro ideas at. It was a cloudy day so shutters speeds barely reached fast times to freeze the movement, but it gave some nice shots in my opinion. All the photo’s are a little bit post processed in Capture NX 2. Moslty exposure compensation and a bit sliding with black and white point. And if needed USM.

Cows

Cows all over the place in Teuchl, seems they can wander around where they want. Except these, behind a nice strong fence. All shot with my 80-200 1:2.8d and D90.
