Guru’s Picks

In previous blogs I have already written that I participate in challenges on Gurushots.com. I have now moved up to Master. One more step to go and then I am Guru. To become a guru you need Guru’s Picks. These are photos that have been chosen as the best by other Gurus. You need it for the Guru level. I have 7 and I enjoyed sharing them here on a post. It is a mix of styles and subjects. Lots of fun 🙂

Monochrome monkey babies

Babies, what’s more beautiful …? It does not matter whether it is human or animal babies. It’s all cute. I am a big fan of primates and monkeys. I can watch them for hours. If there are also little ones, then it becomes extra special. I share new edits of a number of monkey babies. Hopefully you will enjoy this as much as I did when I took the picture. Under each photo you can see in which zoo the photo was taken.

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.
