Welcome and Thank you for visiting my website.
Here you will find some information about the person behind the camera:
I'm Steven Carlier,
I live in Belgium, together with my wife and I have a day-job that isn't photography related. However I got addicted to photography since I had my first point and shoot and it has been my passion ever since.
I mostly shoot the beauty of nature but I like to shoot out of my comfort zone as well.
About the website:
I've been using pbase since 2005 and in 2013 it was time for a new website, here on squarespace.
If you want to join the ride, click "like" on my Facebook page. I'm dutch speaking so please forgive possible writing errors.
In my blog I talk about the story behind the image, about the process and I give some tips and tricks.
A lot is however personal, so in the end, as you being a photographer, do what works best for you.
About the gear:
The camera Takes the shot but it's up to the photographer to Make the shot.
Meaning, Knowledge and gear will give you a technical beautiful shot, but the creativity is coming from the person behind the camera.
I don't care if someone is using a Canon, Nikon or Sony or what so ever. It's really not about the brand, it's how you use it.
I do like the feeling you get when you see your work on a print. That's why I still use an epson R2000 for those bigger prints.
About editing and workflow:
I'm no master in photoshop so my editing is very basic. Though I consider it as an important part of the process.
Now days it goes like this:
- I select (keep or delete) my images in photomechanic,
- I edit in Lightroom and mostly it stops here by exporting to DNG and JPEG,
- I backup at 2 different locations.
