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.

Is your City Photogenic????

Some cities have more sexappeal than others, I have travel some cities in Europe and America and can say that for e there are Industrial, Historical, Business, Suburbian and also Sexy Cities.

The sexiest Photogenic Cities for me would be New York, Paris, Barcelona, Amsterdam, Seattle, Havana and Helsinki. Industrial Cities would be Detroit, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Toulouse. Business cities would be London,  New York again, Seattle, Caracas, Bogota, Stockholm , Copenhagen. Suburban cities : Miami, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Historical: Berlin, Paris, Brussels.

Picturing urban Portraits

skaters, portraits, secrets, tourists, and all the diversity of the Raval on a Saturday morning. The purpose was to be able to get in touch with people and get them to pose for urban portraits. Many times it is hard for us asking people to pose for us , because we imagine they will get mad or be nasty, but that is not always true. Urban Portrait is one of the mos fascinating experiences during urban explorations. Faces and people tell us a lot a bout cities and the local life in every place.

This group enjoyed breaking the fear to get in touch with people and understood ways and techniques to approach and deal with spontaneous portraits.

Urban Photography Summer Course Completed

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For three weeks on Tuesday and Thursday our urban photography course took place last July.

This time 19 people enjoyed the city trough their cameras and learned a little more about how to observe, capture and frame urban life in Barcelona.
Some of the participants were already skilled amateurs interested in getting better images and some others were beginners with compact cameras, who today were asking advice about the new camera they want to buy.

It is always a pleasure to notice people learning things they like and see them being capable of getting rid of the fear of touching buttons and changing settings in their cameras. I am always happy to get to the last session, see the results and hear them talking about apertures, composition and better colors.

at the borne

For me, the best session was held last Tuesday, when visiting La Boqueria market. They were starting to understand the need for observation, How to control the impulse of shooting without thinking but thinking and observing before pushing the button. We were there, looking for moments or situations that may catch our attention. But looking for this type of things never work. The way to find them, was staying still for a while and observing everything that happened around us, like being fully conscious of that place and that time. Only then, lots of incredible characters and situations showed up.

Looking at the pictures the group took, I certainly got to know them a little bit better…..
These were only 12 hours to short time to learn a lot but a lot of time to get closer.
