¿Cómo posar?

Taller de posado

La pregunta, aunque parece trivial, puede causar muchas problemas en esta temporada de bodas y encuentros familiares.

En el Segundo Taller de Posado organizado por el Casino Conde Luna junto a especialistas de trajes (Noviarte), maquillaje (Natalia MakeUp) y fotografía (Dani Martín y Fotoaurinko), pudimos resolver algunas dudas que aparecen en el momento de estar frente a una cámara.

En un ambiente relajado, acompañados por copas a cargo de Güela Manuela, los participantes pudieron practicar unos trucos que no son difíciles de apernder pero mejoran el efecto final. ¡Esperamos que el Taller os haya gustado! Album completo aquí. Continuar leyendo “¿Cómo posar?”

Taller fotográfico en Cerezales del Condado

Al igual que en los últimos años, durante el mes de agosto nos apuntamos al taller fotográfico impartido por Amando Casado y organizado por la Fundación Antonino y Cinia en Cerezales del Condado.

Este año el tema del taller trataba la abstracción en la fotografía. Durante el taller pudimos presentar nuestras fotos, escuchar las criticas de Amando y el resto de los participantes, y sobre todo comprender otras maneras de entender y practicar la fotografía. En grupo pasamos unos días agradables con las practicas: haciendo de modelos, utilizando el flash de mano, jugando con con la luz en un estudio y creando unas imágenes que se salen de lo habitual. Como en otras ocasiones, hemos sacado mucha información y motivación de este taller. Ya tenemos reservado Agosto de 2015 para la próxima cita. La galería de curso aquí.

Nikon workshops

Last three days were quite exciting. We were participating in the workshops organised by Nikon. Unfortunately we couldn´t go to the proper meetings (the course was in Barcelona), but we were following the lectures online.

Travel, portaraits and children photography were main topics. It was interesting to listen to the people who actually live from photograhy and taking pictures is a really big part of their lives. We could refresh our ideas of those kinds of photography, discover new points of view and get brand new ideas. Both photographers were really well prepared and it was pleasure  to listen to them.

Here you can check the pages of the professors:

Jesús G Pastor

Kris Moya

Workshop given by Jesús

On Monday, Jesús presented a photography workshop about timelapse.  The workshop was organised for the members of Legio VII. During it,  Jesús presented  short introduction about timelapse, gave some hints and presented some of his timelapses. Also as a demonstration, he prepared one short timelapse from the workshop. The practical part of the workshop probably will be anonced a bit later.

 

If you would like to check out timelapses done by Jesús, you can find them in our gallery of timelapses here.

Marine photography workshop

Marine photography workshop…

It was 4.30 am on Saturday when we got up to get ready for our workshop. We left León at 6 am to reach beaches of Asturias just before the sunrise. The view was stunning and we started to take our pictures. Unfortunately later the weather changed quite rapidly and almost all of us got wet because of the rain and strong wind. During the break of shooting we went for a cup of hot tea to the town of Cudillero (we have to come back there, the town is very nice!). Hopefully after this the weather was nicer for us and we could check out how we should use the filters and how to imrpove our composition. It was a great tiring day!

Please check some of the pictures we took:

Street Photography in León

Street Photograhy in León!

Yesterday  we participated in two workshops: Street Photogaphy and picture printing for professionals.

During the first one we could try how it is to be “street photographer”. It is a bit tricky kind of photography because of taking pictures of unknown persons, quite often without their knowledge. The main idea of it is to present and documment everyday life, places, people and animals how they are.

The second workshop was about printing our pictures. We learnt how to calibrate our screen, how to prepare pictures for printing, what are the common mistakes in the whole process.. It was very interesting especially for future exposicions.

And the last point of this weeknd was short photowalk across Powazki- the oldest and one of the largest cemeteries in Poland.

And here you can see some pictures from this weekend:

Night Photography during moths´ testing in Garfin

Last Saturday we were participating in great event- night butterflies´testing. We could accompany biologists during their research. The main idea of the event was to set a light trap and make some kind of inventory of species we could see. For us it was a chance to try night macro photography (yes, it sounds a bit crazy but it is fun!). In a very synpathic group with small bbq we spent couple of hours there. Lets hope that soon there will be more events like this!
