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 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”).
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¡
