All-Time Favorites

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.

Thank you so much, Weekly Photo Challenge.

Spring Everywhere!

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!

A Face in The Crowd

Worpdress Weekly Photo Challenge - A Face in The Crowd

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?

This is my contribution for this Weekly Photo Challenge.

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.

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.

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.

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!
