Frames from the Farm

A recent Belgiumdigital Shooting Day brought us to a vast cattle farm in the Haspengouw region, near the city of Sint-Truiden. It served as a major shooting location for the 2011 Belgian drama film Rundskop (released in English as Bullhead).

It did not take long for me to realize that the sparse light and the richness of textures inside the stables were calling for a punchy black-and-white treatment. And as it happens, I just downloaded the trial version of Nik Software’s Silver Efex Pro 2.0 for a spin…
