Lately I have been taking to many pictures of nature and landscapes. And, although I’ve found that I like it more than what I thought, I must admit i’m a fan of portrait photography .
Recently I started looking for models to do a photo shoot. It’s been too long, too much for my taste, since I last did portraits, and I was desperate. However, after several proposals and a request via my Facebook page, someone answered my plea.
My cousin, Anna, volunteered as a model. We decided to use the beach as our stage and do a very natural session. We started about five o’clock in the afternoon, when the sun was beginning to set and that allowed us to take pictures with quite a variety of light effects.
For the wardrobe we went for full white clothing, contrasting with well defined red lips and the many colors of her eyes. Always having in mind the feeling we wanted to achieve with these photos, the light, the color of the sky and the breeze came together in perfect harmony creating the mood we needed.
It had been some time since I last did portraits so it took me a few clicks to get warm. But after a while everything started to flow, and without realizing it, I spent two hours photographing Ana. Here is a small gallery of my favorites.
Portraits is a style that I definitely want to perfect. There is still much to learn and I will continue practicing.
