David Rosado – Artist

The other day I went to an exhibition opening of a friend and great artist David Rosado, who inaugurated his recent exposition in Galeria Arte Periférica, in CCB, Lisbon. His work is vastly influenced by the cinema culture, often we can find allegories from the film industry mixed and invaded by cartoon figures and/or animals, creating this way a complex mosaic in each canvas that tells its own story, independent from each of the individual elements that compose them.

I loved this last exhibition, as it offered a duality between a dark mood, inspired in cult cinema scenes, portrayed in greyish and dark tones, and nature and/or cartoon elements that surprisingly inflict a dichotomy between fear and playfulness.

A little info about David:

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.
