War Photographer, Jamens Natchwey.

Finally I could find it and complete the documentary about the photographer James Natchwey, directed by Chrisian Frei. It is English and have Spanish subtitles. This movie is a must for anybody interested in journalism and documentary photography.
Enjoy and think about his message.

a poem - Princess of the Balkans

a perverted goddess
of milky sinful skin.

a forgotten soul
in a snowy forest.

a crystal knife
of shimmering beauty.


My corrupted muse,
don't cry on my dirty hands
don't caress me under gray skies.
Just be there, down in the ground
blessing all creatures that dare look at you.

Extras 8 - Jana

After a long break, I am back with Jana, as with my previous models, I tried to get different looks from the same person but keeping one style. With her it was not exception, I think that is a good way to push your creativity and your model skills to give you more interesting images.
Enjoy them.

Extras 7 - Lenka

Continuing with the "extras" series now is the chance for Lenka, a czech girl student of laws, as well from my city, Brno.
She was a very versatile model, as you can see I was able to get different looks from her with a very simply lighting style, a small flash trough a shoot trough umbrella. This time I have made some diagrams to show my setup and as you can see, is very simple. Enjoy them.

For the next ones, I took off the black clothe, leave my wall be the  background and add a reflector. The wall obviously did not come out pure white, it was light gray that was easily whiteout in photoshop.

For this image I remove the umbrella, lower it and shoot it straight, simple, then some post production in photoshop and that was all.
