What’s the story Morning Glory¿?


New Portraits pictures, the light was really diffuse and she was been working for a couple of hours, so we sit on the set and started taking pictures. I never worked with this background and in black and white it actually worked pretty well.

Stars


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!

Subway Stories


Subway Stories are just a bunch of images of New York, with no apparent sense among them. With movement, static and full of life these images are trying to explain a day in a city.

Rose Hantée


Hice una sesión de fotos el sábado pasado para una amiga que esta estudiando moda y confección. Necesitaba las imágenes para presentar los cuatro vestidos que había diseñado y confeccionado como proyecto final.

Los vestidos estaban inspirados en la película de Disney La Bella y la Bestia y todos tienen en común una rosa en el conjunto, la colección se llama Rose Hantée espero que os guste.

Los diseños son de Marta Font.

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.

Last Cultural project I did for college. This time the subject was actions in time, how you can freeze an action and how you can describe one with the time exposure of the camera.

Jump

Long exposure: two images in one.

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.

Derek Wood

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.

Johanna Williams

Niki

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.

Melissa & Mark

Brian & Lea

You can see more pictures in here web page and follow here in facebook!

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.

Claudia

in love with the colours

Carmen I

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.

DeadBuryDead "Last Man Standing"

Breathe Carolina (Fearless Records)

Terrassa


As every tuesday we walked around Terrassa trying to photograph our Visual Culture assigment (today was  scale contrast and colours contrast). Normally we did the assigment and the pictures doesn’t worth for anything more, but today was so sunny and the sky was so blue and everything was so colourful and beautiful that I tried to do something more and I ended with some worthful pictures.

I love trees in spring, even in the middle of the cities they looks so beautiful!
