Portrait photographer London. Black and white close-up portrait photographs, took in London. For this photo, I have used a Canon full frame 6D and a 50mm lens f 1.4, at f.2. I have used one flash, the normal Canon flash, mounted on the hot shoe. No fancy flash setting at all. There was also a black backdrop, but still, nothing fancy, just a roll of black paper hanged on the wall.
About the position of the hands, the model was just holding his shirt collar, which was dark as well. The effect is what you can see. A nice straight portrait with nothing but the face and the hands.
On november 2013 I visited Fuerteventura where I had a chance to take some family portraits of my friend Andrea and his gorgeous daughter Kaya. They driven me in a really isolated ranch in the countryside, with a couple of horses and some other animals, and was perfect for some genuine portraits (I don’t like the typical posing family portrais), and after we moved to the amazing beach of El Cotillo on the north side of the island, a very windy beach perfect for surfing.
We were travelling by car, carrying a couple of cameras and a lot of fun, and even the little kaya tried to take some photos, and she was quite good, actually.
But my portraits in Fuerteventure didn’t finish, because We also visited a beach close Corralejo, where there was a kites exhibition and the day was sunny and windy, perfect for kites but also for others family portraits. There are also a couple of portraits of my girlfriend, during our trip throughout the island of Fuerteventura.
About our little trip in Fuerteventura there are also some photos about the life in Corralejo and throughout the island: you can see these photos here.
