A New Year

Everyone is thinking about new resolutions for the upcoming year of 2011, and stating all that 2010 was about.

I skip all of that, as I think that one year only is not just 365 (366) days.


This time, I will not stay at home, alone; I’ll be travelling soon and keeping it simple as I’ve been doing so far.  No rush, no further questions. I don’t know how it will be, but it doesn’t worry me at all. I’m hoping to enjoy those moments. All I can say is that it’s likely to keep myself near seaside: I love the seaside.


Kids, keep up the pace: keep yourselves together.

Back shooting

Today I went back shooting with a friend of mine, something I haven’t done in quite a while. While at home – since I am unemployed from a full-time job, I mean – I have lots of time to spend with whatever I feel like to.
I have been craving to shoot portraits for weeks now (ok, let’s make it months) and today I felt so happy to have the opportunity of doing it.
As I said, I went with a friend and shot her (I can’t avoid smilling at the expression “to shoot someone”…). We based a session on Tim Burton’s book The melancholy death of Oyster Boy and other stories. We both love this book; we both appreciate Tim Burton’s work.
We will do another session on this subject soon, as we have more ideas to develop (yes, I said we, because she helps me too). 🙂

So, you can wait for some pictures from today’s session sometime soon. 🙂

Cheers and hear you soon!

Black and White photography, specially using film, is a must for me every now and then. I may take a while until I shoot a whole 36-photo film, but it doesn’t mean that I don’t like it. In fact, I love it.
I love the sound of my camera shooting, I love all the stories it could tell, I get stunned by it. It’s so simple.

Enjoy it. *

Food Photography – a comeback

What about a spree? Some kind of feast?

I went back to food photography a couple weeks ago. I do need to get more experience on the field, but i still love it more than I can possibly tell at the moment. It’s quite a challenge! Not getting the best conditions to shoot makes it an even bigger challenge, as I have to figure out how to improve what I have (which is not good nor even enough for an amateur shot, sometimes).

As soon as I get more used to this, I will be posting examples here.

Cheers, everyone!
