Atlantic City

its been quite some time since the last blog post… and now there is a new one with unusual content. hope to be able to post more regularly in 2013…

Last week I have been to Atlantic City for work. We have arrived on the Saturday afternoon leaving us with some time prior the actual meetings to start… so I had some time to head out to take some pictures. It was quite cold, but the light is already so different than it is in Brussels…. in the  long run I really have to live somewhere beautiful.

I used a Nikon FM3a with an old manual focus Nikkor 2.5/105 with Fuji 160C and 400H, and the Linhof Technika V with Portra 160NC and 400NC.

    Hi Jan,

    I’ve followed your work for quite some time, it’s inspirational and has proven to be a driving factor in changing my own photographic direction. I suppose with these shots your going where I have been, and visa versa 🙂

    All the best, Jason.

    Hi Jan, this is the first time I send you any message. I am not copying you but you are my true inspiration since a long time. And for that I really thank you. Your work is great, your are an artist. You seem to represent the qualities in photograhy that I really want to follow.

    If you could and want give me an advise what is the secret of the great colors you achieve in your color photographs: is it light, or is it the film and its overexposure, is it the scannining?

    No matter the answer your work showed me the way and gave lots of joy in my photographic life. Thanks again!
