Behind The Lens

I took this photo in the Rembrandt museum in Amsterdam.
It was about 3 pm.
This photo was taken in the original atelier of the dutch painter Rembrandt. The windows of his atelier were at the north side, providing the ideal light for painting as well as photography.
I have a Lumix DMC-TZ100, all my photos are taken with this little miracle of a camera...The best thing about this camera is that it has a good Leica lens and it is very easy to carry with you because it practically fits in your back pocket. I didn't use any extra equipment, I took the photo spontaniously free out of hand.
I was very inspired visiting the Rembrandt house in Amsterdam. Walking through the remains of such a great artist makes one humble... I saw some wonderful antique items displayed which he used when making his own paint. I wanted to show a clean but old looking still life. The wonderful blue light formed a nice contrast with the warm colors and nice textures of the antique items.
I didn't post-process this photo much, I played a little with the light intensity and I cropped the photo in Lightroom.
In my camera bag
I don't have any equipment in my bag (yet) I am a beginning photographer and I am learning to use a camera, to look for the good light, composition and point of view. One day when I know how to use and set the camera well enough, I will start to think about a bag filled with technical things instead of the need to understand how it works first...
When I walk through a museum or anywhere else, I allways look around me very carefully to see the building blocks of which the world around me is build up. I try to look for the details, without forgetting the whole picture. If you look at a subject to photograph, you have to try to realise what you want to achieve, Try to find the good light, the right point of view and the best composition... In this case I wanted to capture the wonderful light in a nice and clean still life. Once I get home and open my laptop, the magic of today's world begins... I allways crop it later into the size and composition I like best. Crop the photo in different ways, so you can choose the best one the next day when you can have a fresh look at them!
