One of the things that makes photography great is it opens doors which normally stay closed. Visiting places you normally wouldn’t see. And smell. Yesterday my camera brought me to a waste processing plant. I was asked to take a couple of photographs for a big regional newspaper (De Gelderlander).
A bit out of my comfort zone. Normally I’m pretty much in control. Being more of a studio photographer. But to go out there and just do it, really helped me in adjusting quickly to low light situations, different color temperatures and a non controllable situation. Plus I learned a little something about processing and recycling waste.
Before the group suited up and visited the actual plant, an insightful presentation about waste, plastic and recycling.
Am I still needed? 😛
Tons of waste, live on tv 😉
Looking at the impressive machineries.
Good thing the smell stays there…
Again? One more time and I quit 😛
I really hope they painted everything this colorful to cheer up the employees a bit. Given they have to work in that special and thick odor.
It really was a maze.
Okay, that’s it…
