Postcards from China IV – Yereth Jansen

Today’s installment of Postcards from China features Dutch photographer Yereth Jansen. After working in web development for a number of years he was able to turn his passion for photography into his main profession. Focussing on fine art, portraits and fashion, Yereth is a storyteller who writes with light. He thinks pictures should speak for themselves, whether it’s about the pure beauty of an image, the silent message beneath, or both. Based in Kunming for a number of years now, he is also a partner and Managing Director for the popular website GoKunming.

Yereth took this shot at the central square in Shaxi. Shaxi is a small jewell of a town near Lijiang and one of Yereth’s favorite places. There is so much to look at in this photo… the classic wooden buildings and the paving stones and of course the moonrise and stars are spectacular.

Shaxi Moonrise

That’s just a sick photograph. Shaxi Moonrise was taken with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM lens. It was shot at f/8 (+1) at 16mm for 30 seconds and at 1600ISO. The RAW file was processed with big bumps in clarity and vibrance to achieve this remarkable final image. You can see more of Yereth’s work on his Facebook Fan Page and on his personal website. Both are worth a visit.

I know I am behind with these Postcards but I never imagined I would be on the road for more than a month of the summer! I am doing my best to get caught up and hope to feature a couple of photographers a week until I am back on track. New posts of The Photographer Interview Series are also coming soon and I’ll be sharing more images from our summer excursions.
