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! 🙂

Composite

A composite in photography is an image that is made of two or more photos. I love playing wit photo’s. I use Photoshop to give them a black background. But I also love to give them a natural backgound. Usually try to find a photo of their naturalul surroundings (making sure it is a photo I’m alowed to use for this purpos). All photos were made in a zoo, writeen under the photos. Sharing a group of composites. Hope you’ll like them.

Barbary macaques

Barbary macaques, they start their lives as wrinkly old people. Cute, but not really the prettiest. After a while they become funny playful and mischievous kids. Nice to look at! They love water. In warm weather you can see them playing in it in the Apenheul. As adults they enjoy grooming eachother, they look so relaxed. You then see those dreamy faces. Beautiful brown eyes can look straight into the camera. Click!

Barbary macaques, photos taken in recent years and especially in the Apenheul.

Youngsters

Selection of photos made in the Apenheul. I think wednesday was my last visit of 2018. Again I loved every minute of it. The weather was amazing. Not to many visitors. Perfect! My photos weren’t all the way I hope they would be. Especially shoting the orangutan I thought: why don’t I have a better lens, more zoom?! I hope I will ne able to buy one before next spring/summer. Who knows? I might have to try and buy a winning lottery ticked. Any tips for that? 😛

Not all photos were shot yesterday. All are young monkeys/primates in the Apenheul.
