A few weeks ago I got the assignment to write an article about 10 of the best analog compact cameras the history of photography has witnessed. I wrote it. And it got published in the online photography site QUESABESDE. It is written in Spanish. If you want to take a look at it, just click HERE or in the screen capture below. You might like it.

As I do every single day, today was no different and I went to check THE VERGE, one of the best sites -if not the best- about technology. I love its wonderful design and the tens of articles published there on a daily basis.

Today they talked about an interesting video that shows a day-night tiime-lapse kind of thing. It’s weird, but it’s worth watching.

Created by Philip Stockton, the video is a mix of day and night images from the greatest city on Earth. You can watch the video down here or check THE VERGE article about it.

If you are into photojournalism, chances are you’ve already seen this. If you haven’t, I strongly recommend you to watch it.

In the following 4 minute video you get to listen to photographer Damir Sagolj talk about anticipation, researching, reaching out and being invisible, among other things, when working on a project or story. Take a look at it, you won’t regret it. It is surprising and satisfying to find a useful video nowadays.

A few weeks ago I talked to talented photographer Andrea Gjestvang, from Norway. I interviewed her about his photo project “One day in History” which has led her to portray some of the survivors of the terrorist attack that took place in Oslo and in the island of Utoya last year and that ended with the life of more than 70 people, most of them teenagers.

Andrea is portraying these young survivors with incredible touch and delicate images. It was a pleasure to talk to her and learn more about her way of working and her insights behind her photos.

Today, the top notch online photography magazine QUESABESDE.COM is publishing an article resulting from the interview I conducted with Andrea Gjestvang. It is worth reading (in Spanish), so if you’re interested, go take a look.

I just read a great article and If you love photography and photojournalism, good pictures and great stories, you should read it too.

It’s about the Napalm Girl (Kim Phuc) that Nick Ut took in Vietnam, in the town of Trang Bang in the summer of 1972 and how photographer David Burnett missed that shot because he was loading a stubborn Leica famous for being really difficult to load.

Take a look at it HERE.

I usually publish tutorials on the CLH site every saturday morning, but today it was my colleague photographer Roger Lleixà’s turn. He talks about zone editing and give some useful tips on how to modify light in a picture only in some areas.

You can read it in just a few minutes (if you know Spanish) and who knows, you might learn something new. I did.

Take a look at it HERE.

 

Today has been a good day. Busy, but good nonetheless. It was actually great now that I think about it.

A few days ago my friend Dani Feixas (movie maker) called me to tell me he was the director of the new music video of world renowned DJ Sak Noel. He had already directed the previous music video of Noel and he was in charge of the new one also.

He called to tell me they needed a photographer on the set and just to see if I was interested in working with them. Sure! I love music and I love taking pictures and I love being on the set of short movies, movies, documentaries and anything movie related that might be interesting to photograph.

It was so much fun to document today’s shooting. I don’t want to spoil anything or talk to much about everything that will appear on the video, but it all starts on what seems a late night TV show like the Conan O’Brian or Jay Leno shows.

The funny thing is that one of the actors couldn’t make it at the shooting today and I ended up acting on the video too! I’m not an actor, I’m just the guy at the back with a camera in his hands, but man, acting was fun today.

I’m not sure when the video is going to be released but I’m pretty sure it’ll be a big success. Until then, here is a photo from the shooting that I took.
