Weekend Unknown

Weekend Unknown

June 28, 2019

This is the last weekend before going back to Italy on vacation: for the next two days we have no plans whatsoever so I will challenge myself with an extreme street hunt. It will be street photography weekend: I do not know what the results will be but I will post the shots. Let’s get […]

First of June

First of June

June 11, 2019

This portrait opens the month of June with two cats (!!) posing for me! Shot with the X-T2 and a quick home setup with 1 off-camera flashlight: super easy and fast. Post pro in Luminar was a matter of a few minutes. Sometimes not having a lot of time helps increasing our efficiency. Only some […]

From the Ground

From the Ground

May 29, 2019

The 737 Max is still grounded since March this year: a huge mess that took the lives of more than 300 people. A tragedy I should say. The Boeing headquarter is 5 minutes walking distance from home and what strikes me the most of that huge building , since my first day here, are the […]

One

One

May 24, 2019

I like some of my pictures much more than others, regardless of what people say and beyond any objective technical analysis. ‘One’ is my 2019 preferred ‘creature’ so far, and is making me consider a black and white only photo project… Shot in Venice Beach with the Fuji X-T1 and 56mm f/1.2, the picture was […]

On the Light, again. Another post inspired by the light, by its effect on the environment and ultimately on ourselves and our feelings and mood

Cheryl’s

Cheryl’s

May 7, 2019

Cheryl is a small restaurant in Fulton, a town close to Corpus Christi: somewhere Marta read that in the summer of 2017 when hurrican Harvey landed, Cheryl’s was one of the few structures that survived or at least, that was not wiped away. One year and a half after that disaster, Fulton and the surrounding […]

Shoot RAW!

Shoot RAW!

April 19, 2019

I recently read an invite to shoot with purpose, to go beyond the technical aspect of the picture and capture what really matters. The concept is not new and always actual: it might take the shape of a contrast between our gear and our soul to eventually break free from fake constraints or have a […]

Los Angeles Contrasts

Los Angeles Contrasts

April 15, 2019

Photography trip to Venice beach, Hollywood and Santa Monica, capturing the contrasts between the rich and beautiful versus the poor and uglies

In the hood: Venice Beach

In the hood: Venice Beach

April 7, 2019

February trip to LA: we were based in Venice Beach. Literally a few meters from the legendary Muscle beach of Schwarzenegger and Ferrigno, the beach of Baywatch, the boardwalk and streets of American History X. All the basketball players in the world think at these courts whenever the word ‘playground’ is spelled. Here pros and […]
