A new gallery has been uploaded with 23 photos from Copenhagen, Denmark. As usual, I did not spend much time in the city, but it was enough to produce some images that I do really love. The photos are divided in four different groups: first, photos made in the streets and where the colors of the buildings become the main characters of the gallery. Mainly uninhabited streets are shown. Next group of photos shows people riding bicycles. Copenhagen is well known as a city with many many people bicycling through the streets, and sometimes it can even be a little bit disturbing, believe me (can you read WhatsApp while riding a bike?). Next group shows some images from the streets and landmarks of the city. And finally, the last group of photos are about the parks and trees and their relationship with the people. I hope that you like the photos. Maybe different project galleries will grow with some of the images captured in the beautiful city of Copenhagen
Some months after my last post, I write this one to tell you about my two brand new galleries and a few photos added to my project “Cities with soul.”
Barcelona is a gallery photographed during my Easter vacation trip to the city. Photos are in color and have been edited in Lightroom in such a way that the tonal range is high, recalling a little bit to HDR photos. In this trip I used for the very first time my new Nikkor 70-200 f4 tele lens. It is amazing the amount of information that can be stored in the 24Mpx of my D600 and the quality achieved by using this lens.
Munich is my last gallery of the beautiful German city. I travelled there for work, so I did not manage to have much time for taking photos… Nevertheless, I shot 500 images from which I have chosen these 24, a mix between color and B&W photos. I still do not know if I will have a more defined style in the future: I like B&W but I also love some photos in color. I cannot decide if all the photos should be one or another, so I try to work in an image-per-image basis and I use color or B&W depending on the image. I guess my style…
I have uploaded two photos to my ‘Cities with soul’ project, one from Barcelona (that is not included in the gallery) and another one from Munich. I really like this shot, but I will probably re-edit it in the near future.
That’s all for now, see you soon (hopefully)
In last months I have uploaded two new galleries.
Zaragoza is about my city. It is expected to grow and change, so it has been posted as a project. Anyway, I can hardly label it as ‘travel’, although many of you may find it a very nice destination for a two-three days trip.
Brussels is a gallery of photos made in during a couple of hours in the heart of Europe. I decided to post all of them in B&W though the day was sunny and clean.
Hope you like them. I have included a brief description of them in the gallery itself, so I did not post anything here.
Today I have uploaded three more photos to the project iPhoneography, two photos to project Trees & Forests and four more to Cities with Soul. In the later, one image from Hong Kong, one image from Florence and two images from Sevilla have been included to reach 27 photos for this gallery. If you want to see more photos from Sevilla you can visit the gallery in my flickr page. Hope you like the photos!

The three days I spent in Florence helped me to take my pictures with a little more calm than I usually do in my quick work trips. There, I tried to focus my technique and look for results in two ways: first I knew that Florence in July presents real hordes of tourists, so I brought a neutral density filter (6 steps) to try to ‘delete’ somehow the crowd (or at least integrate them in the picture otherwise). Some of these images are included in the gallery and here are some more.
The shots had between 4 and 20 seconds shutter speed and allowed, in my humble opinion, to impress more interest to pictures that otherwise would have been the typical postcard with tourists. On the other hand, I tried to achieve images that respond to the concept of fine-art and avoiding, if possible, the typical Florence photo. The more I use the square format the more I like the results, and I try to exploit it as much as possible. They bring a special balance to the final image in some cases and some photographs that at first did not say too much, improved heavily and came back to my mind in square format. As a photographer, I continue to grow in experience, and these three days let me explore my technique a little bit more. I hope you have enjoyed the pictures in the gallery, but just in case here you have a few more.
Los tres días que pasé en Florencia me sirvieron para tomarme la fotografía con un poco más de calma que lo que suelo hacer en mis viajes relámpago por trabajo. Allí, traté de focalizar mis imágenes en dos vías: por un lado sabía que en Julio y en Florencia habría auténticas hordas de turistas, por lo que llevé un filtro de densidad neutra (de 6 pasos) para tratar de ‘eliminar’ de alguna forma ese gentío (o al menos integrarlos en la fotografía de otra forma). Algunas de las imágenes están incluidas en la galería y aquí tenéis algún más. Las tomas fueron de entre 4 y 20 segundos y permitieron, bajo mi humilde punto de vista, hacer que las fotografías tuvieran algo más de interés y se salieran de la postal con turistas. Por otro lado, traté de buscar imágenes que respondieran al concepto de fine-art y huyendo, en lo posible, de la imagen típica. Los formatos cuadrados cada vez me gustan más, y trato de explotarlos en lo posible. Me aportan un equilibrio en algunos casos que me gustan especialmente y fotografías que en principio no me decían mucho vuelven a mi mente en formato cuadrado. Como fotógrafo en experimentación sigo creciendo. Espero que os hayan gustado las fotografías de la galería, pero por si acaso dejo alguna más.
