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.

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.

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)
Emma Stone

Photographer: Norman Jean Roy

Photographer:Mario Testino

Reese Witherspoon for Vogue


For the May 2011 issue of Vogue, photographer Peter Lindbergh pulled out all the stops, bringing one of today’s biggest modern day movie stars to the circus!

Promoting her new movie, Water for Elephants where Reese acts with Robert Pattinson.

Mix Reese Witherspoon, Dolce&Gabbana dresses, Peter Lindbergh and an elephant and you that’s what you are getting: beautiful pictures of Resse where in most of them the elephant seems more comfortable than her. Must be the shoes.

Although the light and the colors of the images are not that bad, Peter Lindbergh always makes a good job with lights.

Dramatism


Follow my blog with bloglovin

The other day I was looking through some videos of masters in photography, some interviews and I caught one of Ralph Gisbon.

Ralph Gisbon is a known photographer of portraits and life, his images are controversial, full of dramatist, movement and life. His portraits are addictive and sometimes you can feel embarrassed but you cannot stop looking at them, they have a lot of power.

In this video, you can see it beneath, he answers question about his photography, how he started, why he shoot in film, who admires, etc but the answer that got me was when the interviewer asked him why he shoot in black and white.

He could have answered that because he likes, because it creates tension and contrast, but his answer really get my think:

¡New Photo Shoot!

In this new one shoot the model is Britt Lower and the makeup artist is Emmanuel García.

The shoot was made with a low key light idea, the key light is behind the model at her left and the light bounces into a white reflector in front of the model at her right.

Light set up

I exposed the aperture towards her face, the bounce light, and let the key light to be overexposed.

In the edition process I saturated the eye shadow and the background and give it her different DOF for the hair and movement and some colors to the blacks.

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!
