As you can see on this page I really like analogue photography. I own a lot of analogue cameras. Partly for the sake of collecting, partly for the sake of taking pictures. Yet the title of this blog is 'The end of analogue photography'. Well first let me state this: analogue photography will be with us for quite some time aftermore. But mainly as a niche of mainstream photography. Probably only for large format special purposes. For most of us analogue photography is over. I tell you why it's over for me. It's mainly the workflow. First of all I have to buy film, which gets more and more difficult (though not impossible). After I shot a roll, I must have my pictures developed. Then I must have the film scanned (or do it myself), and finally I'll have to work on the results so they match my taste. Last but not least I must archive the negatives. All this effort gives me results that are equal to pictures I took with a digital camera in the first place. Only a few years ago all this analoge fuss offered me better pictures, but today it's not the case anymore. Digital is as good or better than analogue. But most importantly: workflow is shorter. So why bother about analogue anymore? Well for me: I love to take out an analogue camera for a walk and shoot the old fashion way. Not because it's better, justfor old times sake.
Born in a small village in the north of the Netherlands I started taking photographs when I was 15. Always taking pictures for myself and those close to me. From 2012 on I had gathered enough courage to expose myself to the world wide web. Enjoy!
Why a blue eye? Well for one I'm a boxer and that means that one ends up with a blue eye every now and then. And for the other: my idea about writing a blog is all about punching en getting punched ;-)
