Yaaayyyy for the 2nd round of photographing the Mendigo catalogue pictures! It went soooo well, and I am super excited about the results, even the collections we shoot at night.

So, first we went to this gorgeous place, a natural park, at Sintra. We took some shots from the last collection from the other day, and they came out perfect. Since we all knew each other already (me and the models) it became easier for us to work together. It was a Sunday afternoon, it was hot, so it was crowded with people, also watching us working. It was fun...

Then we went to a place, very close to the beach. We could watch the sunset from there, so it gave me the best lightning I could ask! And everyone knows I love the sunrise and the sunset... they are my favourite parts of the day. The collection was african themed, so the hot golden lightning was perfect for the ocasion!

The sun went down, perfect time to get some shots from the sunset, and we went to another location. This time indoors... I freaked out! a little... lol I'm still not too confortable about artificial lightning, but I managed something out about the post editing, so I guess it turned out good. The location was inside a music studio, by the way... the models had fun on the instruments, it was a cool shoot.

Next and last location for the day: outside, at night, next to a grafitti wall. The collection is all about dark urban look, si the location was perfect! About the lightning, we used the same method we did the other day: the lights from cars. It looked great... But, as usual, not all the photos came out great, since I have a hard time getting the perfect exposure. But it was ok... This last scene was fun. And I can't wait for the Behind the Scene pictures!!

Here's some picture I took so some people from the team, while they were getting ready, inside our super cool caravan!

The makeup-artist Ana, working her magic on one of the models.

The stylist Vanessa Faria.

Inês Fortunato, a gorgeous model and also my classmate at college.

Sara Batalha, another gorgeous model.

The relaxing time of the team. =)

My PC is burning from working... and I love it! Quick peek ^^

I went to pick my new tripod and reflector today... finally!!! Didn't got it on time for the photoshoot, which pissed me off but it's ok. It was super cheap and great quality! I got it online, from a website all about studio material.

Photographer: ME!!

I finally did it! And it was AWESOME! wow what an experience! I want to give many thanks to Ricardo Santos, the owner of this new brand and also my classmate at college. He trusted me with this task, wich I was terrified of doing!
It was a great production. 6 models (3 girls, 3 boys), a stylist and even a caravan so the models could change and get ready!

So in Lisbon, sunny day! It was a hot day, and I even got my face burned. I realised it after I got home and took a shower. Felt like I just got home from the beach. Anyways... it was really productive, since I like to shoot outdoors, so the sun was my friend and gave me nice weather.

Sintra. The oposite. Windy, cold!!! Like... omg. I had my coat and I had another big coat on! I was sorry for the models, since they had to show the shirts and stuff, so obviously they couldn't get coats on. But it was fun, the last photoshoot. The day was ending, the sun was almost down so we had to hurry up with it. At the end we had to use the lights from cars to shoot the last scene, and it turned out to be really really cool!

It was hard work. 6 models. I had to shoot them as a group, and then individual. My head was hurting, my fingers almost droped off from the cold but HEY, it was fun, a great experience and I can't wait to repeat. There will be more of this ;)

And today i just got super excited so I'm trying diferent editions on the photos. It's hard, since I always use the edition to dramatize my photos, but this time it's all about adversiting it. But it is good to try new stuff.
I can't wait for the next session! =D

Because organising and editing photos is fun!
