Can you tell me how this photo was shoot?
Here some photos that I took last weekend in Oaxtepec, Mexico.
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.
Panama is celebrating the “Fiestas Patrias” which is the independence of Panama from Colombia. Here some images that I took yesterday in a parade.

Here some images to celebrate The Day of Dead, one onf my favorite traditions form my country (Mexico).
Tell me in the comments which is your favorite? You can see more photos in my Instagram account! @torobravoohotography
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…
Which one is your favorite?
“I am forever chasing light. Light turns the ordinary into the magical.” – Trent Parke
Photography definition is “painting with light”, it is certainly light what makes ordinary photographs extraordinary. – Erik Kim
One thing that I have learn shooting street photography is to see the light, either in black and white or in color, light is the “cherry on the cake” as it will make your images even better.
Light can transform your images, so pay attention to good subjects, good background and good light to make remarkable shoots.
The last advice is to try to shoot in the sunrise or in the sunset, in those period of times is where you will find the best light to shoot¡

There is one animal that is very difficult to shoot but is a great complement for tryout street photography portafolio… it’s a bird and it’s name is the Pigeon.
One thing that I like form pigeons is that are like dogs, are common subjects that you can find in every country where you shoot.
Try to shot pigeons… a the beginning will be difficult as they are always moving and they do not like you to be close to them.
One technique is to shoot in burst mode, take many photos and select the best!

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¡
Here some shots:
Here my favorites from that day:
