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!

 

Day 7: Not knowing!

So, vacations are over and so is one post a day challenge!

One of my favorite things about doing this challenge during a week of vacation is that I never know what my post is going to be about until the day is about to end. When I do this, I wait almost until before going to sleep so the post has relation with what I did that day.

That makes it a little bit more difficult, but is also more fun! I got to relax a lot this week. Sleep, stream, hang out with Mango and hubby… It was a perfect week.

Here’s a summary of my favorite photos from the challenge!

 

Day 5 and 6: Streaming photography!

Ok yes I know. I missed one day. But that’s good because the only reason I missed it was because it was a very good and when we arrived home at night I was so tired and sleepy I dind’t got to sit and post on the blog.

One of the things I did during the day was a photo stream on my Twtich Channel: Mafirette.

I worked photos from our trip to Vall de Nùria on Lighroom while chatting to people and explaning what I was doing! I’ve resumed streaming this week because I so excited about one of my birthday presents: a Ninendo 3DS XL with a capture card!!! I wanted one of those for a long time. So I got enthused with streaming again. Then at night, we went to a delicious restaurant to have dinner with my parents and there was wine (hence the not bloggin yesterday xD)

Here’s a gallery with the phtoso I developed yesterday! Hope you like them!

I’m bloggin early today because we are going to see the new Spiderman movie! So I thougth I’m not going to have time to post tonight.

Tomorrow is the last day of my challenge!

Day 4: Cooking time

Free time is a blessing when it comes to cooking.

I made pizza today! Is not something I usually do, because it takes a lot of time and dedication. But today was the perfect day to have home made pizza. I didn’t take a lot of photos because (as usual) I wsa very hungry and just wanted to eat hahaha. So I only took a few minutes to do this one. Food photography is very difficult and you have to take some time to prepare the scene, decorate a bit or it just wont look good. Light is super important too and sadly, mi kitchen has no source of natural light. So whenever I want to take  photo of a dish I making, I have to set it up somewhere else in the house, which makes it all more difficult.
