Short Report of a Day at the Set
All models, props, requisites and lots of water are settled near the quai of Veere.
The sailing event of the historic fishing boats - Van-Loon-Hardzeildag - has not yet begun.
It is going to be a hot day, 33° C (or 91,4° F) , and there is hardly any wind.
We are going to have a fotoshoot of the knitted fishermen's jumpers of Zeeland, made of... wool!
In some cases even knitted of wool from Iceland, which has got a wonderful insulating quality...
And we are happy to have Louis Drent of Louis Drent Fotografie as our professional photographer,
to whom I am happy to function as a personal assistant, "prop manager" and "carrier of the light" :-)
on a day like this.
There is not much time and opportunity for me to take photo's, but here are a few impressions:
Silence at the set.
Briefing of the models.
And after the shot: as quickly as possible get rid of any unnecessary clothes!
Big compliment to the girl in the traditional dress of Arnemuiden,
who wears an underskirt, a black woollen skirt and a big apron... :-)
In the meantime the sailing competition has begun.
Still, hardly a breeze...
the final set... no Dutch theme without a "fiets" (a bicycle),
but to get it right you have to practice...
and practice again...
before you put on the jumpers!
And I guess I have to practice, practice again, and again to get this photo anywhere near "right"
