Assignments – continued

Another assignment for the Academy: “Viewpoint of a dog”. Below my interpretation of this theme, taken quite literally…

The twin-lens reflex camera with its top viewfinder makes these kind of pictures of course quite easy, one does not necessarily have to go lying on the floor (in this case sand) to get these viewpoints. Working with medium format as well allows for a very shallow depth of field as can be seen from the above example.


As mentioned in a post earlier, one of the assignments for the Academy of Arts was to take pictures of reflections. So one weekend we set off to the Belgian coast (one way or another we always end up in Middelkerke though, maybe since i went there all the time with my parents during my youth?), with the idea to photograph refelections in the water pools formed in the tidal zone of the beach. Add to the that a paper boat beautifully crafted by my wife, and the result is something that symbolises the sea very good i think…

A shot of the typical appartment buildings along the walking dikes of our coast can not be missing of course:
