Roadtrip Nature Photography

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

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 🙂

 

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.

Day 3: Mango time

One of the best things about being on vacation is to spend more time with mango.

He’s one year and a half now and he has changes do much since he was a pup. He more calm an loving now. He just wants to be near us and lay down or be pet. Today we took a nap together! He was so still at one point, I even forgot he was there. His breath calms me and he always warm and cozy.

These days we are taking longer walks, we sit and watch people go by and I’m so happy to spend more time with him.

(He was a great model today! He sat still and posed while I took his photo :D)

Day 2: Home and huge ice creams!

Today was a very relaxed day. We stayed at home for most of it and I felt appreciating it a lot. Knowing you can just sit or lay down with no schedules or appointments for at least one week.

My parents came over for lunch, hubby and I watched anime, we went shopping with a friend and I had the biggest and yummiest ice cream I’ve ever had! We also watched a horror movie called Hush at the end of the day and it left me with a weird feeling. So I decided to come write and share my photo of my One Post a Day Challenge Part 2 and see if I could relax again (it’s not working really well).

How’s your week coming along?
