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.

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.

The Day of Dead – Mexico

The Day of the Dead (“Dia de Muertos” is celebrated in Mexico between October 30th and November 2nd. On this day, we as Mexicans honor our deceased loved ones. For me is my favorite time of the year in my country and is the perfect time to make memorable photos, as people is a in celebrating mood, and if you go to the streets you can see all the rich culture, colors and traditions of Mexico. It’s a very colorful holiday and is like “party” in which we celebrate those who passed away.

Also cemeteries are decorated and people use to go there to be with their loved ones; people make altars in their homes, one day before the “The Day of Dead” putting food and/or things like cigarettes, alcohol or any other thing that the passed one enjoyed while living.

One of the many traditions in these days are the “Catrinas”; those are skeleton lady’s that wears lots of makeup to make her skin look whiter.

In this post I want to share some photos that I made with my wife, and also I want to thank my loved Gabriela for being the model and for always supporting me to do what I like the most (“being a photographer”).
