Books


A couple of weeks ago I did a fashion editorial for a bookclub in the United States.

The editorial was meant to be a number of pictures with a female model and books. She was supposed to interact with the books not just in the normal way like reading, but each one of the image has to have the books and she with a fashion outfit. An each one must be different.

We made the editorial in an urban space in Barcelona, a square  near the beach. We had the common issue of photographing outdoors: the sun, in some images it was too hard, in anothers too hide and of course after 5 o’clock of the afternoon it was gone. We also have trouble with all the material because we had to let it in the middle of the street, and some issues about where the model would change and make-up. We’re lucky in that aspect because a restaurant in the same square let us to use the invalid toilet as a make-up changing room.

At the end the session was really good and I really enjoyed.

I took mostly of the photos helped by David Company. The model, Anna Alsius, I already worked with her and is always a pleasure to do it. The same thing happens with the make-up artist, Carmina Camps. I’m always happy to work with such a great group of people!

Here are some of the pictures I did and edited, there’re some I already have to but I’m having no time right now!

Christmas lights


An studio shoot about christmas dresses, it was really difficult to took the photos in a really slow time and with so less light just for trying to caught the lights!

Of course it was even more difficult because the models arrived late and just 2 of them(we are 4 groups so we need 4 models). That inconvenient forced us to shoot an editorial in less than 2 hours!

And of course the edit part was again hard ’cause everything needed a different edit: the background, the model, the dress, the lights, …

Finally this was the result: 4 photos that I don’t love it but i don’t dislike either.

At least we learn how to shoot and edit with slow time and low light and how to manage the time for a shooting!
