Friday Stills

Friday Stills pt. 5


Here's another still life 'story' for Friday. I wanted to do something inspired by Fall for this; but as you can see, it turned out to look more like Winter, don't you think?

Well, I loved the results anyway. Can you believe it took me a whole day to shoot and edit these photographs? So crazy! I know. I mean, it always takes quite a while to organize the set and everything, but I think I broke the record this time, hahah!

To be honest, I've never really been a candle person. It's just not my thing. Until the kind folks at Prospector Co (yes, again. Everything they do is just too good. I can't stop claiming my love) sent me this one, which is just superb. It smells incredibly good (like all their products) and it is just great to have it on your table. Because honestly, the design is just perfect. Just look:

I know, I know... But ok. Anyway, as you can see, the book are kind of beaten. I found them in my grandpa's house, they used to be my mom's. And I thought: hmmm, these could work. And there you have it! That's how I created these Friday Stills. Without mentioning the retouching process (which was a pain, if you ask me). Hope you like it, have a great Friday!

Friday Stills pt. 4


Ahh, I'm so glad this week is finally over. I don't want to be negative or anything, but this week was just crazy awful. Really. It's because all the exams and assignments I had to do... I wonder, who said advertising was an easy career, huh?

So, I'm really grateful that it's Friday. Here's today's still. Finally had time to enjoy some coffee and to read some of my favorite magazines, like Cereal and Kinfolk, which are just greaaaaaaat, I really love them! Their content and quality are simply amazing and breathtaking. I mean it.

And to be honest, reading these, make me want to start my own magazine or something like that, haha. Do you know about any other independent lifestyle/travel/fashion magazines I should know about? Let me know!

Hope you have a good Friday :)

Friday Stills pt.3


Third part of this series! Apparently, flowers are one of my favorite subjects to photograph these days. Especially roses, either dead or alive, I'm loving them. What a cliche, no? For me, roses are one of the most poetic flowers (they're all poetic but you know...) that exist on Earth. They come in almost every color and that's something that just kills me. In a good way, of course.

Ahh, perfect, isn't it? Okay I'll calm down now. But one last thing, the photo was inspired by a lovely spread that Irving Penn (the master, that's how I call him) shot for Vogue, back when Diana Vreeland (another master) was Editor-in-chief in the 60s and early 70s. Also, there's this book, I'm dying to get it! What do you think?

Friday Stills pt.2

Yup, I'm still trying out a bit with still life/nature. This was taken last week, and as you can see, I'm a little bit obsessed with that black board. I thought it looked nice on the last photos I took, so I'm probably going to use it a lot now. The flowers are obviously synthetic but I like the way the look here. Anyway, I'll keep doing this kind of photos and I'll post them every Friday. Please let me know what you think! :)
