One of Us #49: Dipsausje



Dyxum member Dipsausje writes...

The invitation came as a surprise to me, I tend to visit Dyxum actively for a week or two only to be gone for months again. But Iím really honoured to be invited to take part in these series., maybe I also should join in another Dyxum meet or two sometime...

So about me, my name is Jelle, born and living in The Netherlands and currently Iím an Industrial Design student at the Eindhoven University of Technology. Next to that and photography I also have (too) many more hobbies and work-like activities to fill my time...

I have been interested in photography from an early age, on holidays with my parents I would fill up the disposable camera in no-time because I took multiple shots of everything interesting ďin case a shot had failedĒ. At 16 years I bought a Sony superzoom compact, quickly followed by an A100 and eventually an A850 and a Minolta 7. At first I was happily buying new gear all the time, but now Iíve actually slimmed down my lens collection and havenít bought anything over the last 2 years or so. Nowadays I only visit the photographic parts of the Dyxum forums, and tend to spend money on trips not gear (or at least no gear for this hobby)...

Looking at my photography Iíve done (and keep doing) a lot of different things. The biggest change for me is that I started with a lot of long lenses, photographing details and nowadays Iím doing a lot more with wider angles and trying to place things in a context. I donít think
however I can speak of a clear subject or style for my photography.

This year I made my first trip outside Europe (China) and I noticed that at this trip my photography was also different. I took a more documentaryí approach, focussing on the people and the difference in culture, rather than looking for clean and pretty pictures.

Something I admire is photos of seemingly mundane scenes or streets. Photos that at first glance might appear boring but have just enough to attract you to a possible story (hidden) in the details. These are often scenes from streets that donít appear on the cities postcards, but
somehow still intrigue me. Maybe itís because they tell something about the day-to-day life of the people living there, things they might not even notice themselves anymore. Itís not something Iím good at myself, but something I admire in the work of some other photographers and would like to learn more.

Thanks for the opportunity and the kind comments.

On the images: I don't know if I had posted these already here sometime (most of them probably). But I do believe #3 is a world premiere, I found it in my archives and I don't think I've used it anywhere before.

I like your approach to the more "industrial" shots.

Good to read about you. Post more often please.

Love those industrial decay photos. Interesting on how your photography focus has changed.

The spam post in this topic brought it back to my attention, it's already gone again but ended in my email. And I thought it may be nice to tell that I'm currently working on a picture-a-day project. Started in October like so many here, but I'm planning to keep doing it as long as possible. No restrictions on lens or anything (I'm actually mainly using my phone), I'm mostly curious if this will affect the way I look at my environment and if the photography I do in this way will change over time. You can find more about it here.
