As is often the way, the best photos are the ones you don’t plan. I was shooting for a big jewellery brand and the stylist was fixing this huge sapphire necklace so that it sat perfectly on the model’s chest. I just loved how the stylist’s red nails contrasted with the blues of the sapphires and the jacket. The shot was originally planned to be wider but I thought it was going to be punchier if it was cropped right in so that the hand and chest were disembodied. So while the stylist was fixing I quickly snapped the shot, taking everyone by surprise. It ended up being one of my favourite images from the shoot. I think it’s great to have a plan, a storyboard and a mood board to work from when you’re on set, but as photographers we have to trust our instincts and if they’re telling you to go off piste or trying something different, then trust them!
Area called "The Stone Ships". Located on the Black Sea near Sinemorets, Bulgaria. I was about to leave since there were too many clouds and I did not expect for the Sun to come out, when all of a sudden it made its way and beautiful sunrays cut through the skies.
Today something totally different than things I usually do. This time instead of focusing on wide view, I have decided to focus on details. I went for a walk by Water of Leith near where I live. I took my camera and my ND filter and I played with flowing water and long exposure. I am pleased with the results. I have a whole series of images which I will share with you guys. This is one of my favourites. It took my a while to set the leaves on this stone. Maybe it is not perfect, but wind did not help me with this task. The only thing that I do not like about this picture is a fact that there is a Autumn just round the corner. I do not even remember did we have a summer already 😂 Did we? I hope you will enjoy this series of images. Have great and easy Monday guys 🙂
One of the tougher shots to date. Both back breaking at the ice and in post processing. The angle is almost near to ground and the tripod with ball head would be too tall. So I took off the ball head from the tripod and placed it on the frozen lake. Next come the issue of balance, in order to get the right tilt and to prevent the camera from falling forward, I stacked a few pebbles under the lens, careful not to obstruct the focus ring.
Happy World Photography day my friends! Life has been very busy over the last months, so there was no time to create a new photo and pay homage to this very special day. .
Considering this, I decided to re-post one of my most famous images ever, made a few years ago in our unique Palafite Pier in Portugal, captured with very basic gear but also tons of passion. . "Plot Twist" | Photo made in the unique palafite pier in Carrasqueira, Portugal. This is one of the few remaining palafite constructions in the world, used by portuguese fishermen to keep their boats anchored.
