Just thought about playing with a projector and a friend of mine, here is the result! Enjoy…! 🙂

Fábio Silva, the singer/guitar player had a really interesting image to him. And I knew I had to take advantage of his awesome tattoos, dreadlocks and his overall menacing look. ( He’s actually not menacing at all, in fact he is one of the nicest persons I know).
The shot itself is nothing more than a standard portrait, and kind of common place for a metal musician portrait. But by carefully controlling the light and enhancing the contrasts between all the darkness (tattoos, hair, background…) and his skin, I felt really happy with the end result. So now I’m sharing it with you! 🙂
Back then I still used my old Canon 10D and these portraits were shot using only a Canon 430 EX Speedlight and a small Photoflex Umbrella. I have some older photos from their early formation from around 2004/05, wich were actually my first photo shoot ever while still at college. I’ll maybe post them here some other day, so stay sharp! 😉
For those of you who like a little heavier music be sure to check their work here!
A quick secret though! This photo was originally shot in a white background, but after I turned it black in post-production, it gained so much more strength! What do you think?
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 Lisbon. This 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.

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.
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.
