Smoke on the water

Got myself out of the house and got some shots around my home town. I was a little bit worried about going b&w with all of the shots, but the serie of photos gets a bit better with the same processing.

Travel gives inspiration

I have been to Gran Canaria (Spain) with my family. The weather was both splendid and not so good. Armed with my camera and Sigma 1.4/50mm together with VSCO film, it was big joy. I found back to my photographic interest. All by a sudden I was walking around, shooting as back in the good old days.

Travel is great for inspiration!





Evening light

I got a lot of inspiration from Choate House lately. When I found a new inspiring photographer(s) I usually ask myself the following question: why do I like theirs photos?

In this case I loved the honest contact they got when they are doing portraits, the way they handle the tones (object and background) but most of all the way they show respect for the light. Yes, photographing is painting with light but it is all about mastering the light. Soft light and harsh light, when to use it and when to avoid it.

So when the sun was setting yesterday I saw a Dandelion (the most photographed flower on flicker?) on my backyard. I grab my iPhone and took a shot with what I felt was very good quality on the light and I must say that I think the photo got a lot more interesting by the better light.

Take care and may the light be with you..
