Las fotos mas atesoradas y que más queremos ocultar, normalmente cobran un valor increible, el valor de lo prohibído, no sabemos realmente si es por la intimidad que muestran o por que revelan la humanidad y simpleza de alguien, que a pesar de pertenecer a una élite no es más que otro ser humano en el mundo. Son estas imágenes que muestran nuestra fragilidad y vulnerabilidad las que controlamos con más cuidado. Qué tipo de imágenes atesoramos?
a big opportunity to enjoy travel photography
Erin contacted us trough our website a couple of weeks ago. She was interested in an activity related to photography for her daughters while they stayed in Barcelona. She has two teenage girls one into fashion and the other one into photography, really eager to explore the city and a thirteen year old son. They got a 4 hour Photocircuit for the whole family.
We picked them up at their hotel by the sea, and walked to reach the Ciutadella Park, one of the greener spots in town then we went into the Borne quarter and explored streets and for the first time many small shops.
As we walked along the city, from the beach to the historical walled area, we explained tips and concepts about the camera, composition, sequences, light and movement to the girls. both using good cameras , one of them a reflex and the other one a digital compact one, but both very handy at the time of shooting.
We certainly enjoyed the day sharing a great conversation and images under the barcelona sun.

We have been visiting most of the most exciting locations , museums and landmarks of the city.
Two Urban Photography Spring Workshops and many tours and visitors have enjoyed the beautiful weather and the new re-opened locations in the city. Dani was very excited about the cameras new features and I was wondering if the weather broadcast was true. We had a great afternoon both days.

It was Sunday of course, and Alejandra and her friend wanted to enjoy a typical Barcelonian Sunday, so they decided to take the ciutadella park circuit. This a perfect sunny sunday where the park gets filled with amazing people enjoying themselves, children, dogs, picnics and music.
markets happen not very often here but this time it provided a perfect scenery to explore high and low speed, sing the flash under the sun and learning about long and short distance portrait. we were lucky most people where friendly and relaxed about it. Alejandras camera was pretty small and compact but for the day we took the best of.
Now she is willing to buy a new one since now she really knows, she enjoys taking pictures in sunny days.
The end of february gave us the sunniest morning ever to photograph Botero´s Big Cat sculpture at Rambla del Raval. We were talking about using the flash, and how to get nice bright reflections on metals or dark shiny surfaces. This cat was the perfect model for the topic.
We were 15 and looked like a bunch of paparazzi''''s chasing the poor cat, some on top of it and some under it. The good thing is that most of us got to deal with metering correctly, exposing correctly and filtering the flash to control shine and reflections. Then we moved to St Agusti´s church looking for a closed space to continue working with filtering and controlling the flash. there things were very different. Not a pretty church but in a state of decay that gave it a very interesting look. Part of its painting are literally falling apart and others have been removed for restoration. Its space is like an abandoned monument, very silent cold and lonely.
Downtown Barcelona is a place you could visit as many times as you like and will always be full of surprises.
Architecture is the first thing you will be amazed about, hundreds of amazing buildings from different times and styles will catch your eye one after another. from Passeig de Gracia to Via Laietana, to the Roman Walls, to El Raval, you may get a neckache looking up. Quite enjoyable, downtown architecture reveals part of the history, the lifestyle and the stories behind the windows.Then comes people.
Barcelona has become a multicultural city where you can find locals from anywhere. Sometimes it becomes difficult to know who lives there and who is visiting. All races, all nationalities and most of all mixes This magic city has attracted Latinamericans, Germans, Chinese, Brits, french, Arabs, Italians, Americans, and people from Africa and the rest of the Mediterranean. You can find surprising couples and groups of friends, amazing hairstyles, tatoos, clothing and music in the local cafés.
And after that then come the shops, the restaurants and the landmarks….I live downtown barcelona since 2007 walk it everyday and honestly feel I still got a lot to discover here.
It was very fun developing a group activities for teenagers from STS Travel in Canada.
