Check out behind the scenes from out photoset “Pretty Sweet“. It wasn’t an easy photo session; the petals didn’t want to stick to my model’s face the way I wanted them to & her eyeshadow was hurting her eyes, so she kept rubbing them between pictures. In the end though, the pictures turned out really cool.
Petals in her hair
Portrait session with my muse, we went outside to shoot these pictures. Poured some petals all over her hair & face just because… we were trying new things. Edited on my iPhone 6s, very quickly because I’m too busy for heavy editing at the moment (and not in the mood for it), but I’m really enjoying the effects I can make with my phone.
I shot those pictures with my Leica but decided to download them on my iPhone so I could edit using two apps (Mextures & VSCO), instead of Lightroom because I haven’t been in the mood for heavy editing. This was really easy and quick, and I’m pleased with the film-look / grainy results.
A month later…
Hello 🙂 I’ve been absent again from the blogging scene… I like having a blog and being able to post what I want, but only when I feel like it. Blogging for me has always been an on & off thing, and that’s why I disappear from here for a while sometimes.
I realize I can’t achieve anything by treating my online platforms this way, but it’s not like I’ve ever actually wanted to make something serious out of it. All of this stuff are a hobby for me.
I went to Romania and Hungary while I was on this month-long blogging break, I visited the city of Timisoara and Budapest and shot plenty pictures. I spent an excellent time in Romania and had a wonderful couple days in Hungary (thanks to my friend mostly, who took this picture of me).
I’m in the mood to share some of these adventures with you, they’re too great to keep to myself… check back another day to see my updates, or sign up by email to be notified when something new is up.
Also, besides changing my blog’s header and layout color, I’ve also updated the categories; there’s only two now : Pictures & Videos. I want to focus only on what matters the most to me, and that is it.
Here are a couple shots from a very urban area in Zurich, Switzerland. A lot of cool graffiti and street art there, I absolutely loved visiting the place with my best friend. Bright colors in an industrial setting…
I have received and read your “complaints” – apparently, many of you aren’t fans of seeing all the time portraits of that same person I’ve been shooting with recently (aka my muse). You’ve asked to see a different type of work from me, about half of you want me to share more travel pictures but the majority wants me to do self-portraits again.
I’ve heard you loud & clear, and from now on I will be alternating between portraits of my muse and anything else that is not. I’m happy that you gave me feedback about my content, and I will do my best to respect your wishes.
I “messed up” my model a little bit for this photoshoot – I had this idea of shooting pictures of her in a bathtub, with this rock girl look. She wasn’t up for the grunge part, she thought we were gonna do something glamorous but I just needed her to trust me on this, because I knew it would look bomb in the end.
I am so happy that she let me do the whole thing my way, creatively speaking it was awesome for me because I got to do something for once that was really my style & I feel like I truly work my best when I’m able to do what I want, just the way I want it.
Of course it’s almost a luxury for indie artists like me to manage to get things done their way, that is why this photo session was so special to me and I can’t wait to share more pics from this soon !
