Last Day!

Today is the last day of 2010. And my 3rd blog in a week on this new blog. So far so good. Tomorrow I am hoping for a bit of sunshine early in the morning so I can do over an idea I had last year. And I am hoping the snow will be still around tomorrow. 2 days ago I started to grow up a little regarding my business as a photographer. This year I tried to keep up with how much time I put into the business but I didn't succeed. Working with a paper agenda isn't something for me. Now I have a smartphone. The last two months I did manage to write down the money I spend for groceries etc. Two days ago I decided, no I relaised, I can do the same thing for my business admin. Of course I do it now in a basic spreadsheet but I should do it in my calendar. That can be synchronised with my gmail calendar. Good idea if I my say so.
I am also trying to figure out wich way I want to go with my business.On wich two main events I want to concentrate. For now I have documentary photography and events. Those two I want to represent on my commercial website. But somehow I am not convinced yet. Time will tell I guess.

For now I want to wish you all a happy new year.

I failed

I tried to have this blog published on my www.darkroomninja.com website. But I have failed. Have to try again or get help in doing that. Or what I can do is remove the clumsy blog on my website and put a link to here instead. Might be a lot easier. We'll see.
Yesterday I developped 5 rolls of film. Couple of them where shot in New York. Tomorrow I will make some contact sheets to see what I can use to print. I also have a roll of film with a collegue of mine. First studio portraits. Next year I will get explained at Art-school about making portraits. I am looking forward to that. I'm going to post some scans of the contact sheets later this week.

This is my attempt to write down my adventures in analogue photography. I am a professional photographer and I also go to an art school to broaden my knowledge. And especially my knowledge in old fashioned analogue photography. My interests are, black and white photography, polaroid/impossible, fuji instant film and Lith development. You can see some samples on my website www.darkroomninja.com. This website will be in dutch but plans are to have it translated(by myself) into english as wel.
I use different kind of formats for my photography. Digital for my professional work and small, medium and large format for my analogue work. Not really sure what I am going to write down here but I hope that you will enjoy it.
