It is almost genetic, I guess. I was brought up in a family with a super 8mm camera and later a video 8. It was mainly my mother’s hobby but my father had to push the buttons. I always doubted his true interest for film, because he did not use the camera very often. Unless of course, there was snow outside. My father could spend endless meters of expensive Kodak film just to document his car under a fresh deck of snow.
I am more into filming people and I do not own a car. That would be a real burden in an overcrowded city such as Amsterdam with little or no space to park the vehicle. Like my father I rarely film, but this seems to be changing lately. I grew very fond of the film options most modern camera have.
Here is my impression of Amsterdam during a few days of snow.
