My girls. (You might remember our totally awesome album cover.)
Well, not really. But look at our album cover!
Last saturday I went to a nerfighter scavenger hunt gathering in Arnhem. It was lovely weather and a lot of fun to go through the park, station and city centre to try and find all the locations we were hunting for. My team consisted of four girls and we meshed wonderfully. I am still working on selecting and editing my photos of the day, but I wanted to share this bit of fun I was having with photoshop.
One of the places we needed to find was the pedestal of this statue of Hendrik Antoon Lorentz. Cindy took the picture with the rest of us posing. When she posted her photos to facebook, we were all commenting on how fierce we looked and how we’re totally a punk rock band and this is our first album cover. But Cindy herself wasn’t in the photo! So I photoshopped her in and since I was doing that anyway, I thought I’d make it look like an actual album cover. We’re the Spice Puff Girls! (Because there are three Power Puff Girls and five Spice Girls, and four of us.)
I love making silly jokes with awesome people, both in person and online.
Bonus Ben as a Spice Puff Girl (because everyone wants to be a Spice Puff Girl, which is totally what we call our fans as well).
The digital photos I took in and around the Rijksmuseum during our Nerdfighter Museum Gathering! I’ve finally switched to shooting raw. I know, I am so late to this party. I tried shooting raw years ago, but the version of photoshop I had then couldn’t recognize the files from my camera, and the software that came with the camera was excruciatingly slow on the computer I had then. So I kept shooting jpeg and built my workflow around that. Fastforward to now, when I suddenly realise that I’ve had my new computer with a much newer version of photoshop for a while now, so why not switch to shooting raw? I’m still adjusting my workflow, but I am enjoying the imense control I have over the files post shooting. 😀
And I am back with yet more pictures of a Nerdfighter gathering! In march we went to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and I brought my Olympus Trip (with the same Ilford roll as the pictures from my last post) and also my digital DSLR. Outside the weather was beautifully sunny, so I took a lot of pictures while we were waiting for everybody to arrive and also when we had finished with the museum and went outside to catch some rays again.
Here are the analog pictures! I’ll post the digital ones later this week. 🙂
