Poetry and Phototgraphy
I'm Dutch amateur photographer and I like to write poetry. I write my poems in English since 2000 when I first found and joined poetry sites on the internet. I often use my own photography to write my poems to.

Autumn in The Netherlands

Autumn in The Netherlands | Poetry and Phototgraphy | Scoop.it
I think Fall (Autumn) is one of the most photographed and praised seasons and it deserves to be, because Fall is showing us in its own colorful way that all things are transient sooner or later.
Titia Geertman's insight:

Autumn photos combined with my poems. This is not the most beautiful picture, but I had no other at the moment to express Fall.

My New found love of Street Photography | T. Whitaker

My New found love of Street Photography | T. Whitaker | Poetry and Phototgraphy | Scoop.it

 

Since the purchase of my Fujifilm X-E1 and have built up my kit for it I have changed a lot as a photographer in my style of shooting as well as my ability to see shots out of just my general surroundings. Going from a large DSLR to the small mirrorless was quite a jump for me, and then adding manual focus lenses was another very big jump that I had to get used to. One major difference that I noticed when photographing in the street with a DSLR compared to the Fuji was when you pull out the X-E1 no body takes any notice of you, blending into the scene becomes so easy. And being able to blend in and go unnoticed while photographing in the street is a very important to get those candid moments. I love using the Fuji with the manual focus lenses, you really have to take your time and think about the shot you want to take. Photos aren’t just snapped away with a heavy trigger finger like when I am photographing sport, I have to slow down and think which can being some terrific results. I have found that even though I am not as quick with the manual focus combo compared to my quick autofocus DSLR’s I think more about my photography as a whole and not just technique and simple settings. Another thing I love about this kit is how easy is it so travel with, walking around for 5 and 6 hours with my small Think Tank bag carrying my X-E1 kit compared which is a lot smaller and lighter than my DSLR even with just one zoom lens (I have the 2.8 L’s) and the fact that the Fuji produces such beautiful photos in such a small size is brilliant. Practice with the manual focus lenses has also made me faster with focus than I originally thought I would be which is also a nice surprise. Even though I have only recently taken to street photography I have taken some photos that I really like and I feel that this type of shooting has really improved me as a photographer and made me more aware of my surroundings. I am developing the ability to see something out of nothing which has made me a better photographer and my confidence in my work has also improved.I will be heading to the UK towards the end of this year and I am very much looking forward to walking around London again with a much smaller kit. I did it last year with my DSLR and large lenses and got some nice shots that I was happy with, although I do very much like the idea of walking around London for 6 hours with a bag that weighs less than half the one I used last year. Below are some of my street photos from my last trip to London.

Titia Geertman's insight:

I love B&W photography. Though color photography can be beautiful (if it's not too manipulated by photo editing programs), the B&W has a much stronger impact I think.

Poetry and Photography - my books

Poetry and Photography - my books | Poetry and Phototgraphy | Scoop.it
Poetry and Photography: two beautiful forms of Art. I won't call myself a Poet, nor a Photographer, I'm merely an amateur performer in both skills, but writing poetry and photographing nature's beauty have given me so much pleasure in my life.
Titia Geertman's insight:

This is about my own poetry and photography combined to what I call 'Rhyming Images'. I selfpublished 5 books on Blurb.com, each representing another subject, like the nature around me, water, sunsets, spiders (I do love to photograph spiders and their webs).
