4 friends improving their photo skills in Barcelona

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Marc, Gerard, Peter and Enric got together in Barcelona to share a long weekend and improve their photography skills with us. All of them using different cameras joined us at Plaça Real on saturday after a nice lunch. They were ready for walking across the Gothic quarter and the Old Jewish neighborhood making all types of questions and pictures, to understand those concepts that gave them some trouble when shooting alone.

These guys had a lot of fun, joking around and competing for the best picture of the city. Old friends together enjoy twice as much and learn faster.  Their photocircuit ended inside a very crowded cathedral where WB and color were the main topic for questions.

A nice afternoon with a very fun group!

Exploring the Cathedral with Nuria

Even Nuria did not have a big reflex camera, she was planning her Easter holidays with her family and wanted to have full command of her camera. Monuments are big building were a real challenge for her so we explored Barcelona´s main cathedral which is full of details, lights, people and photographic challenges. A beautiful experience on a sunny march morning.

Trinitat redescubre Barcelona

A Trinitat sus amigas del trabajo le regalaron un Photocircuit porque siempre que salen juntas o hay ocasiones especiales ella esta con su cámara haciendo fotos y compartiéndolas con los demás.  La vimos llegar con una gran sonrisa y muchas ganas de aprender cosas nuevas durante la tarde. Como es invierno, decidimos hacer fotos exteriores primero y aprovechar los cambios de luz para explorar las técnicas más relacionadas con color, exposición y sensibilidad y posteriormente nos lanzamos a explorar imágenes con baja luz, y exposición prolongada. Redescubrimos juntos, el circo del puerto, perseguimos una caja con misteriosos puntos rojos que se nos escapaba al zoom, perseguimos coches y motociclistas en vía Laietana y nos reímos mucho mientras recorríamos el paseo de la Barceloneta y retratabamos Sta Maria del Mar.

Lo mas guapo de todo, la experiencia de compartir una tarde juntos en una ciudad tan bonita, el mejor regalo de la semana.

listos para el verano? algunas recomendaciones

Aside

Control del color
Las vacaciones de verano nos dejan normalmente con recuerdos de calidez, luz y color, por lo que es esto lo que debes capturar en tus imágenes. Los paisajes que son verdes completamente en primer plano y con un cielo azul puede que resulten atractivos mientras estás ahí, pero raramente funcionan como fotografías. ¿Qué colores son más efectivos? A continuación te presentamos una guía de fotografía.

El rojo es un color cálido y dominante… incluso un pequeño toque de rojo en una imagen atraerá la atención. Puede ser la puerta roja de un edificio o una flor roja en un prado.

El azul es frío y relajante… a menudo parece que se desvanece en la imagen. El verde, el color de la naturaleza, es también un color relajante. Los azules y verdes realmente brillantes pueden funcionar por sí solos. Sin embargo, los tonos más pálidos se complementan mejor con los rojos y amarillos.

El amarillo es un color brillante y llamativo… el amarillo puro no se ve a menudo en la naturaleza: los tonos de este color a menudo tienden al naranja o al verde.

El marrón es el color de la tierra y las plantas leñosas… funciona muy bien como marco para otros colores, pero raramente proporciona una imagen atractiva cuando se usa como tono principal.

Y finalmente…
Asegúrate siempre de que llevas pilas de repuesto ( o el cargador de la batería) y una tarjeta de memoria de repuesto para que puedas continuar con las capturas.

Gothic Quarter Tour for Oscar and his wife

one digital and one analogic camera

one digital and one analogic camera

Oscar has a reflex film Nikon we wants to fully understand before buying a digital reflex. he got his camera from his father years ago and never fully understood how it works. So he got his Photocircuit from Muchomasqueunregalo.com and came along with 2 cameras.

We met at the Jaume I metro station, near Plaça St Jaume to walk across the Gothic Quarter. First they asked me to explain about basic functions like Aperture, Speed, ISO, Depth of Field, and White Balance so while we walked we took pictures of a very sunny Barcelona understanding concepts at the Felipe Neri Square

Half an hour later all technical issues were solved, we had some nice pictures and the hunt for city images started. They wanted to capture the Jaume I square, Santa Maria del Mar, The Cathedral and Paseo del Borne.

Both digital and analogical cameras worked well, specially chasing the geese at the cathedral´s back patio and capturing portraits of the crowd that surrounded a soap bubble street artists at Paseo del Borne. kids were running after the bubbles and Oscar could capture every smile and jump they did.

Reflections at Sta Maria del Mar

Reflections at Sta Maria del Mar

Santa Maria del mar was a hard task for Oscar trying to capture the reflex of the stained glass that the afternoon light project in the interior of this church, very soft and delicate blue and orange lights created strange shaped in the columns and Oscar was delighted. While he took the pictures two weddings occurred the low light and his wish for details of this interior demanded very long exposures.

Black and white (Ilford HP 400) , and color film (Kodak Gold 200) together with a Sony digital made the day for Oscar and his partner, many questions came up and were solved drawing one smile after another on their faces (my best payment ever).

When the 3 hours ended it seemed to me they wanted more, but the afternoon was over, we had walked for 3 hours and the light was fading so we went for a

refreshment and said goodbye looking forward for the next tour, maybe with a brand new digital and a black and white film.
