Serene

Mafe Roig Photography Blog

I can’t even remember the last time I went to see the sunrise before this. I’ve been meaning to do so for a long time but every time I tried to get out of bed so (so) early on a saturday or sunday I bailed.

What I needed is to plan a photo shoot at that time at the beach to finally do it. This photo is one from a Trash The Dress shoot I did with a dear friend. I will be sharing that very soon!

This is my Serene moment. And I’m so happy I got out of bed that morning.

Windows

With the intent of trying new things during photo shoots, I tried shooting through Windows. It’s so much fun and makes the photo so much interesting. You can play with the reflections, contrasts and colors to create a different-looking image.

I did this shoot with my friend from A Plane Ticket a while ago and I’m thinkin it’s time to schedule a new one!

 

Roadtrip Nature Photography

It’s been a while since we went on a roadtrip.

Mountains Mafe Roig Photography

Last weekend we went aways for a day and visited beautiful places that gave me the opportnity to practice nature and landscape photography. I took my time to snap each photo and then processed them using Lightroom.

I don’t know why, but every time we go on a roadtrip, the experience makes me feel more at home. The planning, getting the car, listeting to loud music while admiring the road sceneries, it feels right.

I also managed to do a short video for my new YouTube Channel. (Which I’m really excited about!)

I hope you feel at home too and have a beautiful week.

Perks of Mobile Photography

I have to confess that, for me, mobile photography represents a big challenge. It’s very difficult for me to find an angle I like when I shoot with my phone. Being such a wide angle lens makes is hard to frame a subject or a scene and I find myself taking so much time to do one shot.

However, mobile photography can be quite practical when you don’t want o can carry your professional equipment with you. That was the case for me last Sunday when I went for a walk with my parents.

I used my One Plus 3 phone and then processed the images using Adobe Lightroom. I just plated a bit with contrast and temperature to give the photos this kind of old look and feel.

I was happy I used my phone to document this day. It was a good day 🙂

 

Shooting with A Plane Ticket in beautiful Barcelona!

A few weeks ago I did a photo shoot with my friend Vero from A Plane Ticket.

Vero A Plane Ticket Mafe Roig Photography

She is about to re-launch her YouTube Channel and we did some photos with that purpose. We went to a place in Barcelona near the museum of design and an emblematic building called Agbar Tower.

I’ve been wanting to do a shooting there for a long time now. It’s a great place with great views, nice backgrounds and natural light. Here are some shots:

I also did a short YouTube video for my channel  (you can suscribe here) where I show you a little behind the scenes of the photo shoot! Hope you enjoy:

I used my Canon EOS 70D with my 50mm, f1.8 lens and Adobe Lightroom to develop de photos.

Textures

I’m not always too inclined to take photos of Textures. But it’s something that my brother has passed on to me a little bit. He’s a graphic designer and he has this great appreciation of textures. Many times that we are walking together and I have my camera he starts pointing textures (that I don’t even notice) for me to shoot.

This past weekend we went outside Barcelona for a barbecue. That was a very good scenery to take photos of textures. There where a lot of trees and leafs of the ground.

So this is my contribution for this Weekly Photo Challenge!
