MUFE makeup courses

Make Up Forever’s professional make up courses continue to be a big success in Portugal, thanks to its representative Expansão York, with classes both in Lisbon and Oporto.

This time i present you with the great work from Ana Soares, one of the students that finished her course last month. Here are some shots i took.

For this photos i used three Profoto Pro Heads attached to 2 Profoto Pro-B3 Air blocks. 2 of the heads, with regular Zoom reflectors were used for the background and the other head was used as keylight with a white Beauty Dish.

On each side of the model i had a white reflector board and, from beneath, a Photoflex Silver reflector disc.

As usual i used my good old Canon EOS 7D with a Canon EF 24-70mm  f/2.8 L USM.

Lady of the manor

A new editorial i shot for BLESS magazine just got out. Named “Lady of the manor” it depicts a young woman living in a house full of wonders and random nonsense.

It was shot in an old house, fully decorated in a vintage style, in the typical neighborhood of Graça, in Lisbon. We wanted to give a vintage meets fashion meets Alice in wonderland feel to it and also disrupt the “innocent little girl” look commonly used in that kind of imaginary, so we introduced Gabriela, a model using her hair shaved, some tattoos and a piercing.All the editorial was shot with one Profoto head with a 5 foot octa attached to a Profoto Pro7-s to obtain a soft light on the model.
Many thanks to Photographicas for lending the lighting equipment.

New Photoshoot

Last week Carolina Sanches, soon to be mother, posed for my camera for a series of great portraits to keep memories from her pregnancy. We wanted to avoid the same old kind of photos pregnant women use to get, so i proposed to do a series of photographs like in a fashion editorial, in a different and fun way. We  headed to Southwest Production‘s studio, in LisbonThis time i used a Elinchrom and Visatec lighting. With a big Elinchrom octa as keylight, and two Visatec with umbrellas to light up the background a bit.

Students against cutback in education.

Ph.: Filipe Serralheiro

29th November was marked by yet another demonstration in the streets of Lisbon. This time the crowd was composed of higher education students.

15h was the time when hundreds of students gattered right above the Marquês de Pombal roundabout, from there they marched in a demonstration that passed in the streets of Lisbon, with the destination set at the stage of previous demonstrations and confrontations with the police, the Portuguese Parliament.

This time though the students gave the country a civic lesson, with around 500 students protesting in front of the parliament without any sort of violence, rendering the excepcional police logistics for the day unnecessary.

The students associative lider,  João Fonseca,  says that more important than the number of students involved  is the fact that the demonstration gattered the effort of 20 student associations national wide.

João Fonseca considered this is a step towards, in the future, the gathering of thousands of students in another demonstration.

“Show me the night” – for BLESS

Today i post another fashion editorial i photographed for BLESS magazine. Despite the fact that it was shot in broad daylight i wanted to give the feeling that the model went for a night out. I only used a single Profoto head with a zoom reflector, attached to a Profoto Pro 7-s.

We shot in the typical  Alfama district, one of the oldest in Lisbon and did a couple of shots in a heavy metal bar called Transmission, in Cais do Sodré district.

I would like to give many thanks to Transmission’s management for all the patience of having us shooting there even when there was allready a huge crowd of people outside that wanted to enter, grab a beer and dance and a special thanks to Kirsten from Photographicas for lending the lighting equipment.

Lisbon and the Tagus river

Last day we decided to go for a walk  in Lisbon with the camera and backpack. It was a rainy day, with clouds in the sky and, from time to time, they would open and let us have a glimpse of the sun.

Here´s what we got from that walk, hope you like it!
