Learning Photography, Techniques, Composition and Gear

portriat of Hubregt Visser, used in welcome postWelcome to Single lens Relaxed Photography, or short: SLRP. My name is Hubregt Visser. I’m a full time scientist. In my spare time I like to photograph and recently I’ve developed an interest in blogging. So, as a result I’ve started this photography blog. My photography level I would describe as ‘advanced amateur’. I’m still in the process of learning photography.

Just another photography blog?

So, what makes this blog different from other blogs? The web is crowded with – very, very good – photography blogs. There is something I do miss though. I can find posts about how to things right. What I would also like to see is how to do things wrong. I mean: I’d like to see before (wrong) and after (right) pictures. I know that – in general – you have to learn from making your own mistakes. However, I think that in photography you can also learn a lot from other people’s mistakes.

What posts to expect?

I’ll be writing posts about technique, like shutter speed, aperture, depth of field and ISO. Then I’ll also post about composition, tips, things to photograph and post processing. With the exception of the technique-related posts I’ll try to include before and after pictures as much as possible. In that way I hope to be of interest for fellow amateur photographers. To start with I have, next to this welcome post, already uploaded posts on aperture, shutter speed and ISO.
