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.

Tainted Love


I was looking for some daily inspiration around the web and found the last work of an amazing photographer: Mario Peña.

He created this series, Tainted Love, after a year of his debut.

– The inspiration for the story comes from two sources, an interesting love story that I had in NY, and the song “If I Had A Heart” by Fever Ray.

Colourful Surrealism


Mirando algunos fotógrafos por internet he encontrado a Greg Kadel, un fotógrafo de moda que trabaja sobre todo para la revista Número y para diferentes publicaciones de Vogue.

Su trabajo me ha llamado la atención al fijarme en las modelos, sus poses y gestos son en cada foto perfectos y estudiados hasta el mínimo detalle sin que parezcan forzados. Las poses, gestos y expresiones de una modelo tienen mucho peso en una imagen y muchas veces se nos olvida lo difícil que es conseguir la perfecta expresión o decirle a la modelo como debe moverse y actuar para que la sesión resulte satisfactoria.

Greg Kadel es un ejemplo de cómo la práctica y el ingenio pueden hacer que los modelos den lo mejor de sí mismos.

Os recomiendo que echéis un vistazo a su página y también a sus videos, son una fuente de inspiración asegurada.

Looking some pictures on the internet I found Greg Kadel, a fashion photographer who works mainly for the magazine “Número” and different publications of Vogue.

His work has caught my attention for the models, their poses and gestures are perfect and studied in each photo to the smallest detail without looking unnatural. The poses, gestures and expressions of a model can have a heavy weigh on images and sometimes we forget how hard it is to get the perfect expression or tell models how they should move and act for the session is satisfactory.

Greg Kadel is an example of how practice and ingenuity can make models give the best of them.

I recommend taking a look at his page and also his videos; they are a source of secure inspiration.

I made a photo session last Saturday for a friend, Marta Font. She is studying fashion and dressmaking and she needed some photos to present four dresses she had designed and made up as a final project.

The dresses were inspired by Disney movie Beauty and the Beast and in they all have a rose in the dress in common. The collection is called Rose Hantée. I hope you like it.

At the end of the session we made a picture of all the models together and another one with the designer.
