Earlier this year, travel and documentary photographer Mitchell Kanashkevich released Understanding Post-Processing: The Video Series. Making the Most of Your Images in Adobe Lightroom 5.

I got to know Mitchell’s work just over five years ago after reading an article on David duChemin’s blog. His first eBook was called Understanding Post-Processing and contained very practical information on how to post-process your images using Lightroom. In this first excellent publication, he gave us the opportunity to look over his shoulder as he applied techniques and functionalities within Lightroom to enhance his images. It certainly was one of the better eBooks I have bought back then. Since then, Mitchell has published several other eBooks, some of them in collaboration with Digital Photography School. Later, he launched Eyevoyage, a new company he co-founded, which also publishes his new and future eBooks and videos.

On the road to Ziguinchor, Senegal

A while ago, I travelled with a cargo vessel from the port of Antwerp to Finland and back. It was an eight-day journey on board of the Transfennica Timca. My report of this trip is already published in Dutch but not yet translated. If you have any questions regarding this trip, you can use the comment section below or send me an e-mail. I’d be happy to help you wherever possible.

All images were shot with the Fuji X-Pro 1, XF14mm F2.8 R, XF23mm F1.4 R, XF35mm F1.4 R and XF56mm F1.2 R.

An article on PetaPixel caught my attention yesterday, entitled Photographer Notebooks for Conveniently Recording Your Film Photos’ Metadata. It’s about a small notebook for film photographers, designed by ILOTT Vintage, which allows you to write down date, aperture, shutter speed, exposure compensation, film speed, and so on.

It immediately reminded me of my days of film photography when I used a second-hand Nikon F5, a professional camera body offering the possibility to store film metadata using one of the four available memory storage options. The image below comes from the Nikon Photo Secretary manual showing these four options. This little piece of software makes it possible to read out the camera’s memory using the Nikon MC 33 PC Connecting Cord (10-pin remote connector from the camera to the 9-pin serial port on the computer).
