How to shot dogs? Here some tricks that I use to shoot my dogs.

This post is dedicate to my two canine friends: Ruperta and Pancho

And here some tips on how you can improve your shoots:

  • Be patient. Dogs and animals in general are very curious and trend to move very fast, so its not so easy to shoot as when you are shooting landscapes or objects without movement.
  • Use fast shutter speed. By setting your camera in Manual mode or Speed priority you will control the speed. Try to shoot in very fast speed this will allow you to capture the pet in movement focusing just in the action.
  • Use continuous shoot mode. Shoot many images per second, and the select the best, you can always delete all others.
  • Use tricks or food to get the dog attention. Very useful to accommodate the dog to the place where the best background is…
  • Shoot in a low aperture mode. This will allow you to focus in the pet and make the background blur.
  • Select the best time of the day / Light is key in good photos. Try to shoot in the sunset or sunrise. This will give you some great color tones to your photos.
  • Edit some photos in black and white. Edit trying to increase the blacks and the contrast, you can achieve very dramatic pictures.

Now you can buy some of my photos in the following link, if you can’t find the one that you like please let me know in the comments section or in my instagram (torobravophotography) and I will upload it, here the link;

Painting with light – Photography

Sunrise and Sunsets are the best time of the day to shoot, the reason is that the light is soft and it help to create beutiful images with different colors.

Over the last year I have been shooting in the same place (the balcony of my apartment in Panama) in different hours and in different days.

The result combined with after editing in lightroom is a random set of pictures, everyone different form the other.

As you already know I am passionate about street photography and the fact that is “impossible” to shoot the same image, as everything is moving so fast and all the different variable (ISO, shutter speed, aperture, edition, camara, lense, post-edition) affects the result. This time I wanted to demonstrate this not in the streets but shooting the Panama landscape.

Here more images, all the images were taken either with my Nikon D7100, or with the Leica Q.

Tell me in the comments which one is your favorite, and what else would you like to see in this blog.

Street Photography inside and Airport

Airports are great places to shoot, the reason is that you will always find people in movement and if you are lucky you can find great places inside the airport in which the light and shadows live.

Here some images recently rock in Panama airport, Panama is refurbishing it’s airport to be the host of America’s, and this is the new section…

Panama, Veracruz Beach Photography

When you think that you live in a place where there are not to many opportunities to shoot, you need to explore new places.

I recently discover a great place to shot in Panama, its just 20min driving form the city; it’s the closest beach from the city. Is for sure not a “beauty” beach like the ones in the caribbean ocean, but I discovered that is a great place to shot in the sunset¡

Buenos Aires, Argentina. Street Photography

By torobravophotography 

I have been shooting for the past 4 years street photography in black and white. Recently I discovered that shooting in color using -2 exposure composition and increasing the blacks while editing it’s great to create great street images in color. Below you will find some images that I took in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

If you want to learn more on how to do this, just send me a message to my instagram account and I can give you more tips.

Panama – San Blas – Kuna Yala

I have been living 9yrs in Panama, during this time I have visit some places, but without doubt my favorite place is Kuna Yala or also known as San Blas. For me this place is like heaven or like arriving to the paradise….

I want to share some photos of this place so you can get a flavor of it and put it in your bucket list…

Kuna Yala is composed by aprox 300 virgin islands dominated by the native people named “Kunas”….
