Recreating a 17th century painting in the 21st century by using only stock photos would be an interesting project under any circumstances. But doing this with “The Concert” is a more than just interesting. First, it is one of the iconic paintings of Johannes Vermeer, a Dutch painter most people know by “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. And second, the story behind this painting is quite mysterious, since it went missing and it has never been found. All this makes Erik’s recreation of the painting even more valuable.
According to the results of a survey Sony published in 2012, as much as two thirds of non-professional DSLR users have never or rarely taken their camera out of auto mode.

X-ray has certainly brought a revolution and it’s a very useful invention. However, the X-ray and photographic film aren’t exactly best friends. If you travel by plane, you know that your luggage needs to go through an X-ray scanner.
Unfortunately, the X-rays can do damage to every unprocessed film, including the one already in your camera. The images you develop from such films will be foggy, grainy and with dark or light patterns and patches. This is why you need to protect your film and make sure that it doesn’t get scanned on the airport. Mark from the Analog Process will show you how.
