the great divide

Shot last Sunday in the Netherlands – near Tilburg… in an area called the Loonse en Drunense Duinen. When we drove to the location it was still windy, cold, cloudy and grey… as soon as we arrived and started shooting, the sun came out and provided us a beautiful shooting afternoon….

Shot on Fuji Acros, Kodak PX125 and Fuji 400H… first time I developed C41 color film myself after I stumbled across a video on youtube where it looked reasonably simple… so yesterday after work I went out to get a Rollei C41 Kit and developed the first two 120 films… not difficult at all. This opens quite exciting new possibilities – I did not shoot any large format on colour so far because prices for development are crazy…so hope to load some color negative film into my film holders soon!

I loaded quite a lot of images into the post… could not really decide which ones to leave out.

the gorgeous model: Model DK

after seeing her website, I was a bit intimidated as she looks very serious on her pictures, extremely professional and all… but she was so nice and relaxed – great fun to shoot with! …she had the sweetest dutch accent I have ever heard…. if dutch would always sound like that, it’ll be my favorite language ….  🙂

I am still scanning… so maybe I add a few images later.

    Excellent. Bravo. These shoots you’re doing outdoors are adding a whole new dimension to your portfolio. I’m almost missing seeing the bed and breakfast 😛

    Great work as usual. I really liked “perspective” and “trees”, both of which were beautiful and a very pleasant surprise!

    Great work Jan – her website scares me too, but you’ve brought something much softer and more human to these images.

  12. 2. June 2011 / 03:16

    Jan – great work as usual. I love these looks of her more than her port on the website. She should be happy with these – outstanding.

    This one remains unique in your portfolio. I see the link to her site is down. Did she get a new one or is she out of modeling?

  20. 8. March 2012 / 23:05
