Making a light tube painting is a wonderful process. It's much more than pressing the shutter button. You have to make an effort to make the coloring page perfect. And as far as I'm concerned, you don't have to color within the lines with light painting photography. You set the rules yourself. However, there are a number of things that can go wrong or have a negative impact on the end result. Let's deal with these one by one: 1. Do not intentionally rotate the tubeIf you look at the Rainbow and the Nordic series of tubes, you will see...

Photography has many facets and is therefore very versatile. Every photographer is also different and has their own style and way of working.

Sometimes people ask me: what is your best photography workshop or course? A really difficult question, but at the steel wool workshop I always have a big smile on my face.

What a super fun extra season of the Perfect Picture. It is not only fun to look at, but also to analyze for yourself why one photo is better than the other. And sometimes I want to climb through the image to give some extra clues... recognizable? I am a bit behind with the series (long live looking back) and yesterday it was my turn to make a light painting. Immediately I was on the edge of my seat. Super cool of course. They got to work with stars, bicycle lights and tube-like things. Unfortunately Tim was...
