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 voyage, 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.

Below you will find my monthly list of links to articles, photo essays and reviews I find interesting, inspiring and worthwhile to read. The emphasis will primarily be focused on photography. The list is somewhat shorter than previous months. That’s because I have been busy lately with activities not related to photography. Still, I hope you appreciate the list I compiled. Those of you using the Flipboard app can now follow my personal magazine I created recently. Just click on the image below to enter. Enjoy!

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).
