Photoshop action set for creating (fake) long exposure clouds in post - use with care!
I've created a set of photoshop actions to create subtle looking long exposure streaks of clouds in post production. Please use with care and consideration, this action set is meant as a reference or source of inspiration to create those clouds yourself or better yet: to shoot them in-camera with the Formatt Hitech Filters​ for example:) http://www.bwvision.com/photoshop-action-download-long-exposure-cloud-streaks/

EU law proposal: Freedom of panorama (taking photos of public buildings on public ground) at stake
Sign the petition if you don’t want this to happen here:
https://www.change.org/p/european-parliament-save-the-freedom-of-photography?recruiter=93818876&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_term=des-lg-no_src-reason_msg&fb_ref=Default
On July 9 EU parliament will vote for a proposal that will restrict the Freedom of Panorama. This means that when you take photographs of public buildings on public ground for commercial purposes this is only allowed when you have the approval of the copy rights holder of the building.
This is a flagrant breach of my freedom of expression as a photographer but also if you’re just taking holiday snaps you want to post on Facebook or any other website.
How will this law be enforcedpra... more »

Colours of New York City
The colour rendition of my Visual Acoustics VIII - New York City Sunrise image. 
More colour work to come.
Facebook or any other photo sharing site on the Internet doesn't do justice to my panoramic images. Even more, no photo sharing site does do justice to my images at all. Best to see them live, for example at the Rotella galleries in NYC and Las Vegas where you can see my images in sizes up to almost 100 inches (2.5 meters).
I used my iSGM B&W workflow method for processing this image. Yes, it's applicable to anything;)

THE ARTIST’S INTENTION AS SUBJECT MATTER AND THE DECISIVE DETAIL IN OBJECT MATTER - A PERSONAL MANIFESTO ON FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY

An attempt to demystify and understand the creation of art and fine-art photography in particular. A theoretical and practical manifesto to defining, analysing, approaching and creating fine-art and other photographs that are considered meaningful. And finally an insight to my personal belief that art should communicate a statement, preferably an emotion and that in art, the artist’s intention, the subject matter, matters most: subjectivism.
It’s my personal Photography Manifesto of Subjectivism that you can use as a guide and make it yours, or just forget about it and reject. It’s not an absolute truth, just my strong conviction and personal statement. Read more on my websitehttp:... more »

Queen of New York City

The Chrysler building. If you consider the Empire State Building the King of New York City, then the Chrysler is the Queen.
Shot with 17mm TS lens and 16 stops of ND filters., 7 minutes exposure time.
Don’t ask why I left the signs and billboards in there. I’ll explain this and more in a few short essays on art in photography in the next weeks on my website. Highly theoretical but it’s time to switch from the technical part to the theoretical part, from aesthetics to passion.

From Vision to final result in 13 minutes
The second demo video of my new black and white quick adjustments and conversion panel for Photoshop CC2014 or higher.
This time I selected a photo that I processed 6 years ago and took me around 12 hours to post process using one of the first versions of my iSGM B&W workflow method. I now do this with my B&W Quick Adjustments and conversion panel in less than 13 minutes in combination with my usual iSGM B&W workflow. You can see the complete processing in this video of 11 minutes: I cut out 2 minutes in which I was either waiting on my computer or taking a quick nap:)

Vision, Visual Styles and Critics in fine-art photography
Following up on my previous post I’m talking about Vision and visual style in my latest blog post but in a more extensive way. I also talk about how Dutch writer Gerard Reve helped form my 4 principles for creating art, about Edward Burtynsky and Salgado, about unsharp photos, portraits without catch lights and yet are still considered masterpieces, and I talk about self proclaimed photography experts on the Internet.

Westminster Palace, Big Ben, seeds, vision and meaningful connection
This write-up consists of 2 parts: the technical part, which most people find interesting and I find boring, and the part where I’m thinking out loud, which most people find boring, but which I find interesting. Or perhaps you find none of it interesting. It’s all good! I’ll start with the technical part and further down this write-up you’ll find the rambling part.
Part 1: Technical info.
Observation: a scene and subject shot to death. A composition that even my great grand mother would consider a cliche.
Facts: a 3 images horizontally shifted and tilted long exposure stitched panorama shot from Westminster Palace and the Big Ben, London. 
Central image: no shift, no tilt. 360s exposure. Left image: maximum shift left, maximum tilt left. Right image, maximum shift right, maximum tilt right. Result:... more »

Part 2: Thinking out loud/rambling part.
I haven’t been very active on social media for the last 6-7 months.
Here’s a thought that crossed my mind many times in the past 7 months of social media celibacy: What is vision? Do I have one? I will spare you the details of all the thoughts and mental struggle that came after that and get straight to the point: vision is often confused with visual style. A visual style is the result of a vision. When people talk about vision then in most cases they’re actually talking about a visual style and just few people are really talking about vision. I did that too, hence in retrospect, I didn’t talk about vision, just about visual style. A vision is highly personal and can’t be copied, it’s an attitude, a belief, a feeling, a way of thinking that can be translated into a visual style but can never be copied. More importantly, I think: a vision needs a connection with the world we live in to make it a meaningful vision and not just a hollow aesthetic creation. It should be a comment. A statement. A feeling. Trying to copy a vision is like trying to be someone else. Who would want to be someone else?
A visual style on the other hand can always be copied, no matter how complex the original vision that resulted in the visual style. Vision is a seed, the soil it grows in is its meaningful connection, the flower that grows from the seed is its predestined result, its form of expression: the visual style.
What am I? Who am I? Where do I come from? What do I want, what do I feel? What moves me and what do I want to change? The honest answers to those form your vision. The artistic expression derived from that notion will have a visual style that shows its origin and its meaning: The seed and the soil it grows in. Your vision: your uniqueness as a human being and your connection with the world you live in. If it doesn’t show, then you’ve (sub)consciously replicated a visual style. You can try and replicate the flower and manufacture a plastic flower: it will look the same but it won’t feel the same. So that’s what I’ve been doing lately. Finding the seed that I have in me and fertile soil to plant it in. I’m still struggling to find it but I’ve grown this colourful picture in the mean time.___

St Paul’s Cathedral, London 2015

Happy New Year to everyone! Yes, even including to my enemies.
A few years ago I stopped making New Year’s resolutions. We should be making resolutions for life, not just for the New Year. So I made myself the following resolution two years ago: life is short, don’t waste your time to anything that isn’t worth your time. Enjoy life, pursue your passions and dreams. Live according to your passions. Create beautiful things that can move myself and hopefully also others. Because that’s the only thing that’s really worth an effort in life. When I’m moved by beautiful art, I feel alive, I feel like I’m really living. What’s more beautiful than creating things that can move people? Even though I didn’t know, and still don’t know, if I could ever do that, create art and pursue my passions, I wanted to give it a try. So at that point I quit mydaytime job that I ha... more »

Happy New Year to everyone! Yes, even including to my enemies.
A few years ago I stopped making New Year’s resolutions. We should be making resolutions for life, not just for the New Year. So I made myself the following resolution two years ago: life is short, don’t waste your time to anything that isn’t worth your time. Enjoy life, pursue your passions and dreams. Live according to your passions. Create beautiful things that can move myself and hopefully also others. Because that’s the only thing that’s really worth an effort in life. When I’m moved by beautiful art, I feel alive, I feel like I’m really living. What’s more beautiful than creating things that can move people? Even though I didn’t know, and still don’t know, if I could ever do that, create art and pursue my passions, I wanted to give it a try. So at that point I quit my daytime job that I had for the past 16 years, and throw away my academic training as a criminal lawyer and an IT expert and all expectations that people had of me of building up a respectable career, not so much to be a ‘professional photographer’, or to be an ‘artist’. No, just to be spending my life doing the things I love, that made me feel alive. I left all securities and I was now facing a financially very unsure future, because now I had to make money with my passions, with the things I love to do. Without wasting any time, and my life, at business meetings at the office that I loathed, without wasting any time in traffic jams during rush hours. Without being held accountable for whatever I did on a day except to myself, to life and of course to the Tax administration (some things never change). No more wasting time and my life, just for the sake of making money and building up a career.
I never regretted that decision. For the past 2 years I only do things I love to do: create some nice photos, write a bit and teach a bit about it, and travel places. And even though I’m doing financially better than ever before I quit my daytime job and career, there’s still a lot of insecurity. Who knows, maybe next year this time I’ll be writing this from inside a cardboard box, living on the streets. Or maybe I’m still doing what I love to do, writing to you from my sunny studio in an exotic location. The point is, you never know what the future will bring you, only what you do right now. I’ve tried to really start living, and maybe I’ll die living, but it’s always better than being dead all your life.
So I really wish you all to start living and pursue your passions and dreams, not only this New Year, but for the rest of your life. Today’s not too late, but tomorrow can be.

I’ve recently had the pleasure to ask multiple awarded fine-art photographer Michael Levin a few questions for a short interview on the challenges he’s facing with people trying to emulate the aesthetics of his work, his own favourite photographs, an advice to aspiring fine-art photographers and on his new KOYO virtual workshop that intrigued me as a new way of teaching workshops

REVISED AND UPDATED COMPLETE GUIDE TO LONG EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPHY 2016 EDITION

I’ve just finished the updated and revised version of my Long exposure photography tutorial that in many ways is different from the previous version released last year (viewed >120,000 times in a little more than a year): I think it has a better and clearer structure now and also has much more information, tips and tricks on everything related to shooting long exposures but also on recommended gear like cameras, tripods, tripod heads and even extensive information on something so small but essential as Quick Release systems. I’ve included many tables to make the information even more clear and transparent. Tables on specific long exposure effects and my preferred weather and light conditions for example.

London Skyline with The Shard - London 2015.
[Shard - noun - a broken piece or fragment, as of pottery or glass.]

Architect Renzo Piano on the design of The Shard: “We will use clear glass – low iron glass. It’s also called extra white glass in England. This is very different from regular glass, which is very green (…) So depending on the day, the light and the position of the sun, the building will look different.” In other words: The Shard’s colour and mood are constantly changing, sensitive to the changing sky around it.
Processing method: same as for my B&W photos - see on my website: http://www.bwvision.com/products/
Photographed with the Formatt-Hitech 16 stops Firecrest.
ISO 200
f/6.3
Exposure time: 6 minutes 25s
Lens: Canon 24mm TS-E lens with upwards shift.

This is a flagrant breach of my freedom of expression as a photographer but also if you’re just taking holiday snaps you want to post on Facebook or any other website.
How will this law be enforced practically when you take pictures? It’s impossible but when you take pictures of let’s say London’s skyline, you’re likely to be harassed by zealous security or police officers, especially when you take out your tripod. It’s simple, since no one is wearing a sign on his head indicating he’s a photographer with commercial purposes they will look for characteristics that give them reason to suspect you’re having commercial purposes. Of course that’s very likely when you have a tripod or something larger than an iPhone! And if you actually have commercial intentions or just want to avoid being harassed, then try finding the copyright holder of the buildings in your photo - good luck with that!
How will this law be enforced when publishing pictures of public buildings? You will face legal action if you post your London Skyline photo on your Facebook page or any other website and if you don’t have the prior approval of the copyright holders of the buildings.
Come on, have they all gone mad? So this is how my photos will look like in the future if useless bureaucracy gets their way: even blacker than usual.___

Colours of New York City
The colour rendition of my Visual Acoustics VIII - New York City Sunrise image. 
More colour work to come.
Facebook or any other photo sharing site on the Internet doesn't do justice to my panoramic images. Even more, no photo sharing site does do justice to my images at all. Best to see them live, for example at the Rotella galleries in NYC and Las Vegas where you can see my images in sizes up to almost 100 inches (2.5 meters).
I used my iSGM B&W workflow method for processing this image. Yes, it's applicable to anything;)

Redesigned website - Focused on sharing knowledge
Some of you might have noticed it but I've redesigned my website www.bwvision.com. Not only did I give it a more contemporary look and feel, but also made it such that it's clear that my website is not a gallery of my own work but a website focused on sharing knowledge on the art of B&W photography, long exposure photography and fine art in general with clear and intuitive navigation. It's not completely finished yet (still need to add the calendar/news/event section and a few more features) but why not have a look and tell me what you think of it? And if you want to see some specific articles/tutorials/topics let me know! This page will be an extension of that website. Special thanks to Douwe Dijkstra who gave me some valuable advice on the design of the logo. That's a man who knows his trade!
