I find myself surprinsily sad writing this post. I can’t believe the Weekly Photo Challenge is coming to an end. WPC helped me blog more, go out here and take new photos inspired on the week’s subject and, most of all, it helped me discover amazing blogs I surely wouldn’ have found out about any other way.
This was form the “Nostalgia” Weekly Photo Challenge and seems very appropiate to start this “All-Time Favorites” post
I regret the challenges I didn’t participate in. There were amazing subjects proposed every week and I had so much fun doing every single one of them. It feels weird to be so sad about this coming to an end (I’m almost tearing up here).
If you took part on any of these challenges, I hope you had as much fun as I did and I hope you continue to share your photos.
Here is a gallery of my favorite Weekly Photo Challenges.
I recently got the chance to work with a group of amazing, beautiful and very talented women: a jewelry maker, a pressional makeup artist and stylist and two amazing models. We did and incredibly beautiful photo shoot using srpingy-Barcelona as location and it coulnd’t have turned out more beautifully.
We went to a really nice park in the high part of the city and it was just the perfect set. There were trees and flowers everywhere! We did photos on different parts of the park to try and take it all in.
My purpose was to match the makeup of the models with the flowers in the park, to create contrasts and use that beautil spring, golden hour light. I did so many photos and was SO happy with most of them I ended up with more that 200 final images.
Hope you get spring vibes from this photos! And if you want to see a behind the scenes of it, you can check it out on this video I published on my Youtube Channel!
I love doing portraits. Straight on face portraits.
But it took me a while to get there. It’s not easy for any of the parts involved in a potrait to be completly comfortable with what’s going on. So at first, when I started photography you could see that. My subjects felt far aways, the framing was all over the place…It was messy.
In time that started to fade away and I begun to really love potrait photography.
However, there’s something really interesting on shooting people from a far, even from their backs. It gives a photo this misterious quality about the person.
What are they doing? Thinking? Are they happy? Sad? Nostalgic?
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.
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.
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.
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)
I’ve been meaning to open a photography YouTube channel for a while. However, I couldn’t come up with what to do on it. Finally, after some time I oficially opened my YouTune Channel!
I say “oficially” because I uploaded some videos previously from roadtrips and stuff, but now I now where I want to go and what I want to do with my YouTube channel. So, for the premiere I made a sort of behind the scenes video of my latest photo shoot for my friend’s web Vestier de Moda.
Today is our 4th year anniversary of moving to Barcelona and I like to make it a tradition to write something special every year and to share my favorite photos I posted on my blog so far. I’ve only missed it one year so far and I surely didn’t want that to happen again this year, so here we are!
Hubby and I were talking about these past 4 years this morning on our way to work. We were remembering the moment we were at the airport right before boarding, the moment we made a flight scale in Frankfurt and when we finally landed in Barcelona. It feels so weird to think about that moment now. I was telling hubby I think I entered in some kind of survival mode. I knew I had to step up to the occasion. That we were pretty much on our own and we had to do what had to be done.
I think it didn’t really hit me that we left until we moved to our own apartment. When we were done doing things we had to do as a priority, like finding a place to live and get all the documentation we needed, it was the moment to start living. And I felt kind of lost. With time, that feeling, that fear diluted. Weird enough, if feels both a long and a short time since we’ve been here. But with all that said, hubby and I toasted today for these past 4 years and many more to come.
Here’s a compilation of some of my favorite photos form this last year. Enjoy!
