Colours by Andrea D’Aquino


29 year old Italian photographer Andrea D’Aquino works between Barcelona, Hamburg and Stuttgart, and has been shooting professionally for about 10 years now. His work has been featured in publications such as QVEST, Vs Magazine, SCHÖN! Magazine, and Hypebeast Magazin.

His pictures are full of colour, perfectly in place, stunning and so sharp and clear, I love them.

X-ray photography


They say that photography is the art of reproducing an image, with any media necessary. Well it seems like Nick Veasy took this pretty serious and he build his portfolio with pictures of people, machines, and flowers all seen via an x-ray machine.

Is an image good enough?


Is an image good enough? Can it reproduce a feeling all by itself?

Carlos Herra seems to think different, his photography is good by itself but when he combines it with sharp and precise phrases and good typography it seems to give them more power more meaning.

I’m a firm believer than a great picture doesn’t need anything else and it’s probably that this technique just work for him, for his image, but the fact is that it works at least for the images below.

Daily Inspiration – People


Portraits, they seem really easy sometimes and mostly photographers only concentrates on the light, the background, edit, etc An if you are a Fashion photographer is so usually to see photos where the model has the same expression over and over again, because the most important thing are the clothes right?
Well yes, but a portrait is much more than Fashion or lighting, and when i found those pictures of Håkon Borg, I thought I should share them.

They are powerful, not for the colours or for the light, despite the fact that he use a good lighting; they are powerful for the expression of each subject. It’s unique and real, and I like that.

Daily Inspiration – Water


It’s been raining for some days in New York, not much but there’s water everywhere. And it got me thinking about underwater photography, I always wanted to try it, even if it’s only putting a doll inside a bowl. But you always have the problem of the glass between the camera and the subject.

So I was doing some reasearch and I found a couple of great underwater photography.

The First series is from one of the most elaborate sets in the world, British film production company Pinewood Studio where they capture breathtaking shots in a tank filled with 1.2 million liters (317,000 gallons) of water. The underwater stage, which opened in 2005, has been used for a huge number of TV commercials, music videos and films, including The Bourne Ultimatum, Atonement, Elizabeth and Casino Royale.

Vogue.com


I use to buy a couple of Fashion magazines a month to look over articles and specially the photography, the editorials, famous photographers as Steve Meisel or Mario Testino, etc

But here I found that the magazines where sometimes too expensive, around $8 each, and that I have no space at the apartment where to left them or their pictures. In Barcelona I have all of them safe and ordered and the best pictures hanging on my wall.

That’s why I started being a fan of  Vogue.com, especially Vogue.com/magazine. You can find videos of the shootings, slideshow with the best images, articles, etc

I would recommend to spend at least ten minutes if you have them, is worth it.

My favorites this week are: (the links of the images goes to the slideshow where you can find all the pictures)

Photographer:Mario Testino

Anne Hathaway
