Amateur, passionate, freak and photography aficionado living in Hong Kong. I was born in Belgium sometime in 1977 and grew up there. At the sweet age of 15, I started to shoot around with an old SLR ignoring all rules of photography, getting some creative yet very limited results. Some time after, I evolved and bought my first Minolta (a Dynax 5xi if I can remember well). Then after a couple of years... nothing ... no more pictures. I had to study the great subject of International Business and Marketing. Luckily, I got back to a creative life a few years later when buying my first Canon DSLR. Moving to Hong Kong, I got my hand on the Hasselblads, Leicas et al and can now never leave home without one of these babies. So to summarize this long and boring recount of my life so far... I am a self taught amateur photographer, living with my lovely wife in the wonderful city of Hong Kong. I also like Jazz and coconut ice cream.

Coming from other similar websites, I find the quality and clarity of the website to be much higher and love the fact that people don't post the latest pictures of their cat yawning or pictures of their manhood (although cats are cute, it is quite boring to see 10000 favs on a cat picture because it is... "soooo kwoooot!"... well you get my point... and I have no interest in other guys private parts really).

Anyway... I am getting out of my point here. The gist is... I am happy I found 500px and love the website.

This introduction being done... let's go to the main topic of this first entry: the mighty nightmare of color management.

It all came on a gloomy night when I was working on a picture and decided to post it on a website to see if someone was interested in commenting on my talent ...
