No one else


Last post I was presenting you four great photographers I follow in flickr for a long time ago because their job was really good.

This time I would like to introduce a photographer from my contact word,  I’ve a word document with a list of the photographers I like the most and the ones  their job always inspired me.  I know this one for a really short time but his work is so different from what I’m used to and so beautiful at the same time that I loved from the beggining, his name is Atton Conrad. Mostly of the people know him for a shot he did: light graffitti fashion, but if you keep looking on his work there’s a lot more.

I love the way he tooks a normal image and turns into something unique and special, it makes me want to start planning different shots at the same time.

Enjoy his images!

I was amazed when I read that the colours of this image were taken with the camara and lights and that they weren’t made with photoshop.

Welcome to a dream place


I usually post my images here and talk about photography and how I made or edit images. And well today I was thinking about what I can post and I realized I never told why I start this blog in the first place: I started because I love photography! Not just taking photos and edit them but also look at others photographers, their photos and their stories, the ones that explain how they took the image or edit or simply why they like it. So I decided to do the same, to have a place where I can share everything I like about photography.

Why I’m writting this? Because I also realized that I never showed their work, the photos of those photographers who amazed me with their pictures and stories. So for today this post is gonna be about them. I hope you enjoyed their pictures as much as I do.

I’ve been following his work even before I got a flickr account. I totally love his images, the colours, the model and how he get those expressions, the composition, and I could go on, but the best is to look at this work because it talks for itself.

Also check his flickr page and tumblr

Courtney Jade

One of the myths in photography is that wedding and celebration photographers are the ones that weren’t good enough for fashion or advertising. Everyone has heard that,  and I used to believe it but then I found courtney jade. She photograph wedding, newborn, couples, etc and her photos are so beautiful so full of love that totally dismiss the myth, she is really talented and I admire how she can interact with the people and get the best of themselves.

Edu Gómez

He’s a spanish photographer that lives in Malaga. I’ve been following his work since the first week I had a flickr account. His work is amazing not just the expression he gets from the models but also the edition process. I’m fascineted with the colours of his photos and the texture of the fabrics, skins, etc.

in love with the colours

If you look at his flickr page or his blog you would see a lot of more images.

Keaton Andrew

And the last one but not the least, Keaton Andrew a photographer from Atlanta that  specializes in photographing music groups. I like how each photo for each group is different from the others, he have a really good way to photography them in situations that you would never imagine.

Breathe Carolina (Fearless Records)

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!
