New on 500px : The Old Lane by martinpodt by martinpodt

The Old Lane, Sallandse Heuvelrug, the Netherlands.

SALE! If you want to have my photo ‘Keep on Dreaming’ on canvas, now is the time! Click here.

This is a place that you cannot reach very easily. Hidden in the forest, this lane is one of my favorite photo locations. Nevertheless, I had not been there for a while, so last weekend I went there again. When I arrived, the light was not very great though. I waited for almost an hour until the light was finally satisfactory. I hope you like it. 😉

New on 500px : Just be happy by martinpodt by martinpodt

Just be happy…

Markelo, the Netherlands.

I think I am getting old… It seems I can’t keep up with the pace at which things are changing here at 500px. It made me remember a quote of Guillaume Apollinaire: “Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.”

New on 500px : You can’t have a light without a dark by martinpodt by martinpodt

You can’t have a light without a dark to stick it in…

Especially with my autumnal photos, I always try to create a certain mood. A bit of a dark mood. Sometimes processing a photo takes a long time until I finally I’ve found the result I was looking for. When I start working on a photo, I never really know where it will end up. I only know the feeling that it should evoke. In that sense, my work flow is mostly trial and error. Sometimes it ends up in nothing. Sometimes I have to process a photo over and over to finally get to something I like.

This photo was different. When I started working on this one, I knew exactly what to do with it to create that slight dark mood and happiness at the same time. Just the proper balance between the two…

Well, I am not sure whether it also works for you too. So let me know.

New on 500px : Not all those who wander are lost… by martinpodt by martinpodt

Not all those who wander are lost…

Holten, the Netherlands.

This photo I took a few weeks ago in my village. I processed a few times but I was not really happy with the results. But then Lars van de Goor gave some great tip and finally I am happy with the result. I hope you like it too. And if you have not done so already, also check out the wonderful gallery of Lars.
