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.

Photography – Mario Peña (mariopenaphotography.com)
Styling – Van Van Picz (vanvanla.com)
Make up – Devin Joplin (devjop.com)
Model – Katie Flanigan @ Click LA (clickmodel.com)

Snowing In New York

Last week it snowed a lot in New York, in one sunday the whole city turned whiter and whiter.

I took several pictures the same sunday at night of the streets near my place, and took a photographic trip around New York next morning to see and capture how was the city.

There is still plenty of snow on the streets, but is melting a little each day.

Enjoy the images!

More fashion Pictures i edited the last days, here the model is Rennie Sweeney and the makeup artist is Emmanuel García.

I’m still not getting used to the beauty pictures actually, I think they aren’t what I expected or maybe I wasn’t able to get the best out of them, i will have to work harder with models.

Probably next time I would get closer… I think that I could bring some power to the image because it looks too much perfect. ..

What do you think?

El otro día estaba yo leyendo unos artículos en XatakaFoto.com y me encontré con este: El artículo habla de cómo crear un bokeh creativo con tu cámara, en otras palabras crear un desenfoque con formas geométricas.

Y no entendí cómo funcionaba, en realidad sigo sin entender cómo funciona, pero decidí probarlo. Me compre una cartulina y recorte un círculo para mi objetivo de 50mm y en medio del círculo una estrella. Lo pegué al objetivo con cinta de papel e hice un par de fotos.



Apartment 8b with stars


Como veis al desenfocar la imagen, hay estrellas, pero no muchas realmente. Supuse que era porque el invento funcionaba mejor con luces aisladas, y así es, y con más fuerza, en otras palabras: de noche.

Así que decidí salir de noche a sacar un par de fotos y como necesitaba luces pensé que Times Square era lo suyo. El experimento fue de lo más divertido, saqué muchas fotos, algunas ya se ven todas iguales; pero sigo sin saber muy bien cómo funciona porque como veréis en una de las imágenes si enfocas el sujeto este aparece enfocado y sin estrellitas.

¡En fin os dejo con Stars in Times Square, espero que os gusten!

Black and White

I went out one afternoon to the Financial District and decided that I will only shoot in Black and White. So I changed the camera presets and started shooting and shooting just thinking about shapes and shadows, no color.

When I got back the images in Raw where in color, of course, but I turned all of them in bw. I choose the ones I was gonna edit and put the Raw setting at zero back.

Then I edit all of them in black and white. This result, hope you enjoy it!
