Monochrome in the Eijsder Beemden

This year, until now, wintertime was mostly wet and grey. It is not inspiring for photography.

This photo walk I decided to embrace the dull conditions and to do some black and white photography in the Eijsder Beemden. So, before leaving home I already set my XT3 to Fujifilm monochrome + red filter film simulation.

On arrival completely unexpected the sun came out. But, only just for 5 minutes. Just enough to take one photograph of a scene I always pass by without trying to get an interesting composition. I had just enough time to put my camera on the tripod. Somehow in monochrome setting the scene was interesting. It is the first one in this short post.

I’m in the process of making a photo book of the Eijsder Beemden. Looking at my favourite photographs of the Eijsder Beemden, I still miss some photographs to complete the book. It will take some more time to finish this personal project. So, again I spent a lot of time exploring the Eijsder Beemden for new compositions.

This time I did not take a lot of photographs. Normaly, I take a lot of shots of one scene to get the best possible lighting conditions, but with these grey conditions it is not necessary. All photographs are taken with my favourite Fujifilm 35mm F2 lens.

During post processing I experimented with some colour grading. The warm toning gives an extra mood to the photographs.

I hope next photo walk will be in sunny conditions.
