My name is Rob Baar, an enthusiastic photographer
I bought my first SLR when I was 24. I knew almost nothing about photography, but also by the capabilities of the camera and the pictures I was quickly hooked on photography. In those early days I also read a lot about photography, have also gained a lot from the books of Mich Buschman. Through his books, I also taught basic principles of darkroom. Soon I had my first darkroom in the attic built. Later I had access to a darkroom near the house where I have spent many hours.
Work now only digital. Started out with the Nikon Coolpix 995. Soon I noticed the lack of an SLR. After the Nikon D70 and D300 I shoot with the Nikon D700, and the new D800 a great full frame camera. With the 24-70mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/2.8 VR and a 50mm f/1.4 I make the most photos. For portraits now I use the new nikon AF-S 85mm f/1.4G.
Have done in the past, sports photography, occasionally a wedding photography but I prefer portraits and reportages. I love to capture people’s emotions. On my trip in India Nepal and Indonesia are many examples.
