Esta fue mi primera experiencia con fotografía de desnudos, un tema bastante exigente, y que muchas veces se piensa que es fácil de lograr con una modelo linda y una buena cámara fotográfica.
Estas fotos las tomé en el año 2005, ya tenía experiencia con iluminación y composición, y contaba con un equipo rudimentario de luces contínuas compuesto de una lámpara de 400 vatios como luz principal y una luz direccional de 50 vatios como luz auxiliar.

The following are photographs of the Getty museum, in Los Angeles, one of the most beautiful and interesting museums I have been to, not only for its architecture but for the great pieces of art that are exhibited there. Continue reading “The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles”
Hoy revisando mis archivos de fotos descubrí de nuevo este estudio que hice para Andrea Rincón, y quise experimentar un poco con estas fotografías que tienen muchos defectos de calidad, sobre todo cuando se comparan con las fotos que toman las cámaras de hoy en día. Para disimular la calidad agregué algo de grano, y luego enfoque (smart sharpen). Todas estaban en blanco y negro, pero a último minuto decidí aplicarles color con un filtro llamado gradient map (supongo que en español es mapa de degradado).

These are some photos I took some weeks ago in the football game Redskins vs Lions. I actually did a decent work, after tailgating and having four beers (2 ales and 2 IPAs) for breakfast. I have to admit that 50% (if not more) of the photos I took were of the redskins cheerleaders. I used my 70-200mm lens, with middle and large apertures to focus on the players (and cheerleaders) and separate them from the background.
This is Annabel, a lovely cat my wife and I are fostering since July. She lost her home some months ago and was rescued by HART, she was living in a kennel for several weeks before my wife brought her here.
In the beginning Annabell was really shy, but she was not scared to explore our apartment and actually felt comfortable, even interacting from the distance with Nina.
I was not used to have cats, and I was expecting they were like dogs, wanting to be picked up or be pet. Cats are independent, and they actually allow you to pet them when they want, not when you want to. Continue reading “Lovely Annabell, looking for a new home”
This is my ugly mutt Nina, we adopted her when she was 3 months old, she was supposed to be a German shepherd mix but I think she’s got a little bit of everything.
We started looking for dogs last year, assisting to adoption events organized by Homeward Trails, and meeting some rescue dogs. In the beginning we felt in love with a dachshund mix we met in Herndon but unfortunately our application was rejected because she was already in the process of being adopted. Homeward Trails helped us finding similar dogs, and recommended some events so we could go and meet them. Continue reading “This is my mutt, Nina”
