In Frame: Ady Martinêz. 🌸 📷 Sony a7RII+Yashica ML 50mm. With this photo, I wanted to get outside my comfort zone editing and sharing with you a medium shot, that in my experience are much more difficult than a standard close-up since they implied a more mindful composition, aside from they tend to look very flat when are taken using exclusively available light 🌞😨 like in the case of this photo. So, the challenge consisted in balancing the flat look of my original file with a nice black and white conversion to increase the contrast and emphasize the tonal range (film term to dynamic range) in order to provide more dimension and volume to my image. Besides that, I didn't make any other major change or editing in the image.

The vast majority of my portraits comes more from the art of improvisation than an actual photo shooting🤔😃📷💡. This photo was taken last year after attending along with my friend and teammate Paloma to a press conference to cover some daily news 📷🗒🖊📰
Once the conference was finished we were about to leave when we came across this magnificent garden🍃 so we came up with the idea of taking some quick test shots in this location. With this in mind, “I took borrowed” a flower from a vase there was around there to craft some sort of art direction 😄🌼. For the whole thing, we used just the ambient light, my Jupiter 9 Lens, a collapsible silver reflector, and our available fifteen minutes for having the lunch😞🍔 but what made the difference to achieve a group of good photos was Paloma's charming personality.
All Flowers in time bends towards the sun. 🌼🌻🌻🌼🌞 MD Paloma 📷 Canon 70D + Jupiter 9. I had already uploaded this portrait yesterday, but at that version the skin color had a magenta/ reddish cast that didn't look right, and I thought that the photo was nice just to leave it that way, so I decided to upload the photo once again, but this time with color correction on the skin tones. Finally just to mention that I took this picture with the legendary Soviet Lens Jupiter 9, which is sharp and also produces this bubble bokeh effect that you can see on the background.

Say something, I’m giving up on you.
