Andrei {Portrait, Cluj-Napoca}


I decided I`m going to post both in english and romanian (at least for now), but I`m not going to translate the post entirely because that`s one of the things I hate the most. Some things you just cannot translate to sound as good as they do in english, or romanian, but basically they`re gonna  be the same. Curious where this will lead.

So, I had a shoot with Andrei a week or two ago and I totally loved it. Usually, during the week time I`m able to shoot only in the mornings and lunch time, which is ok during the cold season, considering the fact that it gets dark outside pretty early and you don`t miss a lot of that beautiful light. During summer time is a pain in the ass, because I just love that sunset light and if all of my pictures in the portfolio would be taken in that light, I would die happily. Anyways, I consider it a challange for my work to get the best out of morning light, so I try not to get that upset about it.

I love when my models are relaxed and easy going at a shoot. Don`t get me wrong, I don`t mind giving directions when I shoot, but I have to admit that`s a lot easier when you don`t have to pay attention to every single move (or no move) of the model. But that`s a subject that deserves a whole post, so stay tuned.

(De ceva vreme ma tot gandesc in ce limba sa scriu pe blog, iar momentan am hotarat sa postez atat in engleza, cat si in romana. Nu o sa traduc cuvand cu cuvant, nu am rabdarea necesara pentru asa ceva, insa in mare parte vor fi la fel.

Am avut un shooting cu Andrei acum o saptamana, sau doua si mi-a palcut foarte tare. De obicei, in timpul saptamanii pot sa fotografiez doar dimineata sau la amiaza, din cauza programului pe care-l am la locul de munca, ceea ce este ok in timpul iernii, insa vara imi vine sa plang. Daca as putea sa fotografiez pentu tot restul vietii in lumina de apus, nu mi-as mai dori nimic altceva pentru portofoliul meu. Dar pentru ca nu tot timpul este posibil asa ceva, trebuie sa o iei ca pe o provocare, ceva ce sa te impinga mai departe si sa te invete la ce trebuie sa la ce sa fii atent cand fotografiezi in momente diferite ale zilei.

E o placere sa lucrezi cu modele care sunt relaxate in fata aparatului. Nu ma intelegeti gresit, nu ma deranjeaza sa dau indicatii sau sugestii legate de pozitii, dar din cand in cand e placut sa stii ca nu trebuie sa fii atent la fiecare miscare a modelului, pentru ca rezultatul final sa fie perfect. Oricum, e un subiect care merita o intreaga postare, asa ca stay tuned.)234
