life begins where the comfort zone ends

Better images in 5 minutes

Why do my holiday images look so boring compared to what I felt myself when I took them? How do you ask permission to take somebody's portrait? How can I make my landscapes more vivid? 

Typical questions I get from people during my lectures and workshops. And interesting enough you can improve your images very easily by simply sticking to 4 ot 5 simple rules. Avoid the sun, especially if taking close-ups, for example. And try to avoid the horizon in the middle of your image.

Dutch magazine Z!n publisehd a 6 page feature in which I tackle some of these common questions, plus their easy solutions. Here it is (in Dutch).
