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.

Birds at the Orchideeën Hoeve

Photos taken at the Orchideeën Hoeve. Birds this time. With the last expansion, a lot has of birds have been added. The enclosure is called Makirijk (Lemur country), but it is also a large flight cage with beautiful colorful birds. For me the birds are the most important, because I have already photographed many lemurs in the Apenheul. And then also from very close. It is nice to see how the animals get a lot of space here too. It looks good.

I will definitely go to the Orchideeën Hoeve soon. A wonderful place!

A short visit to Artis

Yesterday I had a wonderful day with friends in Amsterdam. It was completely perfect. The journey by train and in Amsterdam itself for the first time with the North-South line without delay. Then the day starts nice. Furthermore, it was especially nice. We have been busy with the preparations for building a website. We had a nice dinner. And in the afternoon I was invited to visit Artis. And then this lady does not say no, of course: P.

Sharing a number of photos that I made. We were lucky in Artis. Beautiful animals and as a cherry on the cake a beautiful sweet little baby.

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.
