Flowers on black

If you have been following me a bit longer, you know I love to edit my photos “On black”. I feel many subjects look better when the are placed on a black backgound. This time I’m sharing flowers on a black backgound. Ik hope you’ll like them.

Promotion videos

Today I made a number of promotional videos for my website. For me it was practice to see what is possible with Ripl. That is software that was initially only to be used on a mobile phone and the like. I had tried that before, but I found it inconvenient to always copy pictures to my phone. Now it can also be done on the PC. Very nicel, because there you have all the photos available.

I have taken a subscription (which you stop any day) on the pro version. At first it was disappointing. I thought: “is this all there is”. But I had not yet discovered all the options. There is a lot and it is very user-friendly. If you also want to try it, that’s free. It is also fun to play with. RIPL

Here under a number of test videos. I’d like to hear your thoughts about it. There is also sound. Lots of fun! 🙂

Mike & Co

Recently I went to Dierenpark Amersfoort again. They have beautiful animals. This time it was I enjoyed it a lot as usual. My absolute favorite in Amersfoort is Mike. Mike is a now alderlychimpanzee with a beautiful appearance. In 2015 I made my favorite photo of him (the last photo in this blog). Meanwhile the years are starting to count, I think. He is very calm and I have only seen action when there was something to eat.

Mike was the leader of the group in the past. He is still a full member of the group, but a son is now the new leader. There are chimpanzees of different ages in the group. The youngest is Wingu. A grandson of Mike.

I share a number of photos that I took. The first is one from Mike. This was the only good photo I made during my last visit. He was constantly right behind the window. Maintenance was carried out in front of the enclosure. He made a complete study of al the activity.

A photo of Wingu. He always has something naughty about him. I love it 🙂

It looks like a contemplation. I am always early and the chimpanzees are not really awake when I am there. Hence a number of photos that radiate tranquility.

A photo of Mike from 2015. He collected his favorite snack. It looks like it is smoking. So funny!

On Black

A selection of photos shot in recent years all edited on a black background. I like this kind of editing. It brings out the animal. It also is nice that you can hide an ugly background with it.
