My name is David Herreman, living in Belgium, a small country in Europe, directly above France. I have always loved nature and beautiful scenery, that’s probably why I was attracted to photography.
As a child, I was already impressed by the beauty of nature and the power released in the sky during storms. I remember the day, I was about 7 years old, when I was perched in a tree for admiring a sunset and the moment is still imbedded in my memory. It was as if I shared this moment with the author of these things. It was more than visual, it was an emotional moment.
Few years after, I received my first camera from my parents at Christmas. That was a great day! But time passed quickly until my teens. After my studies in computer science, I came accros inspiring photographs that have resurrected in me that wonderful moment from my early years. I then decided to get into photography again with my first DSLR.
A few months after posting my photos on social networks, my work was noticed and appreciated by many around the world until my work began to be published. I then decided to get involved in photography until now!
My favorite subject is landscapes. I almost never shot landscapes when the sky is completely blue. Cloud formation is very important to me and is enhanced by the use of a wide angle lens. This is why my Sigma 10-20mm almost never leaves my camera (Canon 7D)!
Whatever the technique used (HDR, DRI, ND-GRAD filter), I always use a tripod when possible. As wrote John Fielder, a tripod and cable release of the shutter are as important to the landscape photographer as the shovel is to a ditch digger.
One of my favorite filter is the B&W 77mm #110 3.0 (1000x) Neutral Density Filter giving great results for long exposures! Also I often use Cokin-like (reverse) graduated ND filters in order to darken bright sky so that both the sky and subject can be properly exposed.
Thanks for looking at my work!
