Atmospheres



Capturing the moment ........

Before the drip of water hits and sends its rings across the surface, after it is released from the overhanging branch that whips back once it’s burden is free, a moment is caught. Time stands still as a realization. The synapse chimes its electrical connection. At that moment what is being watched becomes much more than beauty. It is a millisecond of time the eye, the body, and the trees with all the lakes in the world and the drops that fall into them stop to celebrate that there is beauty, and there is love, and that capturing the later when it is established is all that matters.

        Shot like many of my images in the magic hour , just before sunset.

Captura del momento
Antes de que caiga la gota de agua y envíe sus anillos por la superficie tras haberse liberado de la prominente rama que se sacude como látigo al liberar su carga, se captura un instante. El tiempo está quieto, como una obra realizada. La sinapsis repica su eléctrica conexión. En ese momento lo que se observa se vuelve mucho más que belleza. Es un milisegundo del tiempo en que el ojo, el cuerpo, y los árboles con todos los lagos del mundo y las gotas que caen en ellos se detienen para celebrar que exista belleza, y que exista amor, y que capturarlo cuando se consigue es todo lo que importa.

Food Photography




 


The limit in food photography is the limit of your imagination . I am sure Peter Pan would agree.




I believe that a photograph should do more than just show the food but add to it by creating an atmosphere around it through lighting reflection or background . The times of just showing food for what it is are far behind us . I aim to add value through the photographic design process making good food heavenly in appeal exciting in its dynamic of course it helps if the food looks good in the first place.
