This Photographer Shoots Portraits in the Style of Old Master Painters
Gemmy Woud-Binnendijk is a Dutch fine art photographer whose portrait photos may make you feel like you’re walking through a museum. Her style is inspired by the masterpieces of old master painters.
She combines the Chiaroscuro principle and the technique of Sfumato to create depth using light and dark contrasts. Woud-Binnendijk aims for “soft and imperceptible transitions” through layering colors and tones.
Woud-Binnendijk was born in the mid-1970s and has five children. After her work became widely published, she caught Nikon’s eye and became an official brand ambassador in 2017.
