About me

My name is Rob Nagelhout, Date of Birth 12-07-1952. I'm living together with my wife Jose in Heemskerk, a small town nearby the coast between Amsterdam and Alkmaar and of course in the Netherlands. In 2005 I became disabled and took up photography as a hobby after 37 years of making holiday snapshots. I like to learn as much as possible. My camera at this moment is the Canon EOS 7D with a battery-grip. The lenses I use are the: Sigma EX 10-20 F/1:4-5.6 DC HSM and the Sigma EX 50mm F/1.4 DG HSM and the Sigma EX 105mm F/2.8 DG Macro 1:1 and the Sigma EX 180mm F/3.5 DG HSM APO Macro 1:1 and the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM. On all lenses I've got UV- and Pola-filters. I use only the A or M-mode and I take my pictures in RAW and then my second hobby comes in. I edit those pictures on the computer with Adobe Photoshop CC and the complete Nik Software Suite. After several years my taste has developed from color into monochrome photography, and from all kind of subjects into abstract and in the first place people in all kind of situations and always using available light. I'm always photographing them with permission afterwards.
And sometimes I'll return to other subjects and it could be even in color now and then :-)

ps. I don't believe in votings as they are done here so I won't take part in that section and please don't propose any work of me

    No need to say thank you for my comments but it would be nice if you took some time to look at my work and a comment or critiques are appreciated a lot

    Maybe an idea to skip the whole favorite business because members are buying proposals and pro-votings with it

    The general quality of daily uploads is decreasing rapidly and that's a pity. The only solution is honesty. Badly exposed is badly exposed and out of focus is out of focus and has nothing to do with moods. What belongs in the dustbin shouldn't get compliments and stars or FC will be the laughing stock in the world of photography. And talking about the social aspect has nothing to do with a photo-site. If small-talk is the goal Facebook is the place to be.

    Don't ask me to be your friend because I don't know you. Isn't meant personal but......If I like your work I'll follow it and give honest critiques and help when needed.
