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.

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:

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.

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.

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.
