Explorando el Raval con Claudia

A Claudia le encanta tomar, fotos pero hasta el momento no sabía como repetir esas fotos tan chulas que siempre había hecho. ¨…las hago pero cuando me preguntan como la he hecho, no lo sé…” nos comentaba, mientras atravesamos la plaza del Macba, Claudia tiene 18 años, sus padres le regalaron la cámara y sus amigas un Photocircuit para que despejara todas las dudas que pudiera tener sobre la fotografía.

Nos encontramos en Pl. Universidad un sábado en la mañana y en poco tiempo ya había entendido el funcionamiento básico así que nos lanzamos a recorrer el Raval, parando en lugares para tomar fotos y aclarar conceptos, mientras nos reíamos con las anécdotas del camino, los pescados de la Boqueria, la fuente de la Massana y las flores de la Rambla. Fue una mañana divertida y muy enriquecedora para ambos.

Gracias Claudia y esperamos verte de nuevo!! con muchas fotos espectaculares 🙂

Picturing the Ciutadella Park on a sunny Market day

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.

Picturing Botero´s Big Cat

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.

Shooting Skaters with Ranan

Ranan came from New York to spend a couple of months in Barcelona.

He was certainly interested in developing his photography skills and took the Raval Photocircuit. As his main interests were architecture and moving objects: the perfect target were Raval Skaters, they usually skate around Macba and other squares downtown, specially during the summer. The afternoon light provided two main scenarios one completely illuminated with the sunshine and the other back light images. In addition a high speed was needed to freeze jumping and figures they constantly made.

In the background there was alway architecture both modern and classical, sometimes mixed, it was a nice idea to set them in an eclectic environment instead of the traditional graffiti-like backgrounds everyone uses.

After skaters, Ranan focused on architecture and discovered that it was very cool to meter reflections and create contrast between the light inside the reflection and the actual ¨real¨light in the building.

We ended our tour in Drassanes the Old Boat factory.

Downtown Barcelona is a neverending story

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.
