About sisters...

I made theses portraits of these two sisters specially for the portrait category of the Samsung NX200 contest Feel and share.
I had just a basic idea of what I wanted: a portrait of them looking each other seriously but as the photo session started and more photos were taken it lead me to other kind of pictures as you can see. I took approximately 90 shoots and these are my selection. The 7th photo is my favorite, it give me that feeling of mixed emotions, followed by the 3rd of the faced being hold by hands which can have many interpretations.
Anyway, the most important is that they, Lenka and Kristyna, my wonderful models are happy with the results :-). I know these portraits are not the typical or expected photos of sisters, in which they would be smiling and looking happy but I think fall into what I would dare to call, even I don't like the term of "artistic portraits" because there is something more intimate in those eyes when you look at them. So no more words and enjoy them.

We can change the future..., actually not.

One of the hardest categories for me to send photos was Future, mainly because the way I see it is more technological, like robots, cyborgs, flying cars, etc. and make some images based in those ideas is pretty hard. However as the deadline was approaching, the pressure made me make diamonds:

Think too much about the future is useless, and this is a common phrase we hear when things are not going well in the present: We can can change it! but we can?
As the phrase sounds nice and optimist I decided to make a photo of it. I collected some leaves from the street and place them on a note book, some basic arrangement and done! but after few minutes to take this photos I realized that it was wrong, we cannot change the the future because it has not happened yet, therefore what we can do indeed is change our present so our actions can shape, up to some point, the future. And that idea lead me to the second image The future is not written yet.
Simple , effective and nice don't you think?

The next images are more from my idea of a technological world. As i did not have any of the objects i needed to make the images I wanted, a small twist in my ideas push to these with the Christmas light. The one with my son is titled: "Cyborg" and the other one "Artificial hand"

And to finish a picture titled "You and me".

Let the kid alone.

Continuing with the series of photos taken for the new Samsung camera NX200, the Facebook online exhibition Feel and share, these are the photos I sent for the category of people. The model for these pictures is my handsome son :-) of 3 years old. He was a little devil as a model, making fun of me and being very elusive to my camera. It took me a lot work get these shoots but they are worth. For the one he looks like crying and the one with the reptiles, only in those he made a sad and scare face, in all the others he is just making funny faces as you can see in "He, he, he..." but at the end that is the best way, he has fun and I get the images I want, real father-son team work.
Don't cry my boy.

Toys, toys, toys...

These are some photos taken lastly, made mostly for fun and for the online contest in Facebook held by Samsung "Feel and Share" from which I was one of the 60 photographers chosen. I had to send photos in five categories Nature, People, City, Art and Future. These were for nature, the idea behind is an artificial world as our nature, our plastic nature. Once finished will be be in my website but for now I leave you with these, enjoy them and comment them.
