The black and white fine art video tutorial – Fluid Time V is a “making of” tutorial about how I created the image Fluid Time V – Aligning Paths
In this tutorial I present my vision for this image and for the series whose part it is, I analyze the composition of the image and I make a general presentation of the way I processed it with my method Photography Drawing. More than just processing, this is a presentation of what happens from when the first idea is born till the finished image is ready to be delivered.

How to create award-winning series of photographs
This is an insight into how I conceive, compose and process my black and white fine art images to create award winning series. An overview on how to create (en)Visionography and how to process with Photography Drawing (PhtD) to create images that match your inner world as artists.
More details about how I create my photographs you can find in the book From Basics to Fine Art written with co-author Joel Tjintjelaar.
You can read more about the image Fluid Time V in my previous blog post about it. Also you can have a look here at the series Fluid Time, an award-winning series (it was awarded in IPA, PX3 and Black and White Spider Awards this year) created using the tilt-shift lens Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II and where the leitmotif of the series is the blur effect this lens can create when tilted., which is, as you might have noticed, a characteristic style of my work over the last one and a half years. I’m explaining in the video why I use the blur effect as a tool to transpose in image my vision for the series and what the idea behind the creation of this series is.
