Tejo Coen

A short introduction about myself : born 26/02/1944 in Merksem/Antwerp, lived in a family with 2 younger sisters, now married and father of 5 children,
and grandfather of 8 grandchildren. I live in Brecht near Antwerp.
My first photo-impressions started in the dark-room of my uncle, also called Theo. I had the chance to help him a bit with developing and drying his pictures.
He was a professional, had a small studio and a very small dark-room.
Later on, I used to have my own, very well equipped dark-room, where I spend a lot of time. When photography became digital, I switched too.
I’ve been active in sports for many years, and that’s why it’s my fave subject. But, as you can see, I like all kinds of photographic subjects.
After a lot of practice, I’m a fanatic with post-processing. I use photoshop CS5, Nik-software and Topaz-labs to finish my pictures.
But, like in the good old dark-room days, I still use the "dodge and burn” method, to give my pics that finishing touch.
I also like to combine multiple pictures and create a new end-result,.
