Janine Jansen

Last august I had the pleasure of photographing world famous violin player Janine Jansen for the biggest newspaper in the Netherlands.

Below are some photos from that session.

As usual I was present during the interview (Journalist Eva Jinek) in order to hopefully get a lead on how the photos could match the interview. Before the shoot I had wondered on what to do with the violin. What could I do with the violin without getting too much a cliché photo of a violin player. That all turned out unnecessary since Janine understandably didn’t bring her very expensive Stradivarius to a day of interviews.

Anyway, during the interview I kind of got the impression that Janine was very happy to be seen as the girl next door. Famous, very talented, but still very normal.

So I decided to keep the photos natural. The interview took place in an hotel in Utrecht and with the last daylight I opted for a plain white wall outside in the garden.

I used one fill in flash softened by a white flash-trough umbrella coming from the front right. (quantum flash T5d)

new pinhole seascape photos

Sand, water and air mixed with time.
The sea is near my house. If the wind isn’t blowing in it takes me less then 20 minutes on bicycle to reach it.
Unlike the subjects for my portraits the sea has always plenty of time. It never comments, is never unwilling, has no retouche demands. Only one thing, It just can’t sit still. Everything moves, all the time. Even the clouds on their way to somewhere don’t pause.
I shoot these seascapes on film with a pinhole camera. It’s aperture is F235. On a bright day that can still result in an exposure time of one second and when cloudy exposure times rapidly increase.
In time a small selection of these Pinholephotos will be printed large size 1,5 meter x1 meter.

Pinhole Seascape Photographes

 

Every last Sunday of April is World Pinhole Day so here we go:All photos are made with a modified Agfa Clack camera. The lens is removed and is replaced with a very tin piece of metal foil which has a very small pinhole in it. It’s aperture is approximately  F/180 or F/250. This small aperture lets only a little bit of light through so even on a bright day the shortest exposure time on a 100 iso film would be around a second. When it’s cloudy, or very cloudy or when the lights starts to fade exposure times rapidly increase. Most of the photos here have exposure times between 2 and 16 seconds. During twilight exposure times can be even minutes.The AgfaClack pinhole produces 6x9cm negatives, 8 photos on one roll of film.Clack-seascape-17Clack-seascape-18 Clack-seascape-21 Clack-seascape-14 Clack-seascape-15 Clack-seascape-16 Clack-seascape-19 Clack-seascape-20Clack-seascape-22  Clack-seascape-02Clack-seascape-01 Clack-seascape-06Clack-seascape-03 Clack-seascape-04 Clack-seascape-09 Clack-seascape-07 Clack-seascape-08 Clack-seascape-11 Clack-seascape-10 Clack-seascape-12 Clack-seascape-13agfaclack1 agfaclack2 agfaclack3
