Fokko gave us the assignment to follow someone on the market place and shoot multiple photos – without being noticed – that together would make a little ‘story’.

I like to read a lot about how other photographers go about post-processing their work. So I thought I’d share my post-processing workflow with you guys.
Last weekend I travelled to Rotterdam to take part in a street photography workshop lead by the famous Dutch street photographer Fokko Muller*.
I took part in two of his ‘Street Photography Fundamental’ workshops a couple of years ago, but this time I upped the game and decided to register for Fokko’s ‘Advanced’ workshop. Unfortunately, all of his Advanced workshops were fully booked, so I asked to be put on the waiting list.
