Happy Monday #23

I wish I were in the U.S. to take part in this:

Remember when I blogged about meeting Sarah from the blog Make Take Travel?
(If not, see Happy Monday #11)

Well my feature is now online :)

Here’s a sneak peek of the interview, click to see the entire article:

É pena esse retiro criativo ser nos E.U.A. (clicar na primeira imagem para mais informações) se não acho que ia gostar de participar! Há uns meses atrás escrevi sobre o meu encontro com a Sarah do blogue Make Take Travel (ver AQUI), está agora disponível no blogue dela o artigo que publicou sobre o meu trabalho e uma pequena entrevista que me fez (clicar no excerto acima para aceder ao artigo completo). Boa semana! 

Happy Monday #22

Today I want to share this article about communication on a photo shoot, written by Emily Soto. She’s a fashion photographer based in NYC and I thought this compilation of tips & tricks was a very nice read.

Here’s a screenshot of the first paragraph, click the image to access the entire article on 5oopx:

 Here are some excerpts of my favorite tips she gave:

Body language and other non-verbal communication is especially important because it gives a ‘mood’ to the photo. I often mimic the pose I am wanting (…).

At the start of a shoot, I’ll show the model a ‘mood board’ (…) I’ll describe the emotions I’m looking for.

If you can find something simple for the model to interact with, leaning on a wall, or sitting on a step, for instance, it can make them feel much more comfortable and natural.

I always make sure we have music on when shooting in studio, to make the environment more comfortable.

Estefânia

Rewind to December 2014 when I was in Portugal for the holidays and spent a few hours with my friend Estefânia. We went for lunch together but before we stopped for a small photo shoot!

It’s very tricky to shoot at that time when the sun is high in the sky, but it was our only opportunity so we had to make it work anyway. These ones made it to the TOP3 of the final selection ;)

And we totally forgot to take one together!

Fotografei a minha amiga Estefânia em Dezembro, logo a seguir ao Natal. Fomos almoçar juntas, mas antes decidimos ir tirar algumas fotos. É sempre um desafio fotografar quando o sol já vai alto, no entanto era o único momento que tínhamos disponível por isso tivemos de nos adaptar! Estas 3 foram as favoritas e apercebo-me agora que nem sequer tiramos uma juntas!
