Such as the mysterious title that heads this post could hide almost anything. Rather not. Rather are some pictures of this year I feel like showing. Some were shot with the EOS 5D Mark III and others with my NX500 that every time I like more. Although the EVIL cameras have their limitations in terms of speed of use (the autofocus is not as fast, and least in my case, because I am usually using manual lenses and there is nothing like auto-focus with them), I find specially charming it weights a third of my ultra reliable and ultraversatile 5D Mark III.
The point is shooting portraits is one of the disciplines that most attracts us photographers. Though today selfies are very fashionable, the portraits taken by someone else have additional values. Especially when we photographers shoot, because we look at different ways that most people do not take into account and that factors appear ultimately in the final result. And yes, I have a special fondness for black and white, but I think it’s just a slightly harmful vice, except for some ink manufacturers. In any case, as I hope all the world to see on the computer screen, there is not much problem with it.

It is not uncommon in waiting times, or when you go walking around the street with a camera in hand you find different materials that may be of interest to get a photo. Sometimes they can be used for assembly or make sense per se.
Materials: looking closely
Often, as a photographer, I simply take the photo and then, at home, I’ll see if it makes any sense. And “after” may be when well passed four years. Sure, it’s not always so, but the fact that I have saved and classified pictures properly helps a lot, especially when I have to design a poster or some work with more than an image. What is problematic, I admit, is getting all pictures and videos stored and properly tagged. For a couple of years’m using specific software for classification and tagging and helps dramatically: it increases the profitability of the work already done, but then the trouble to go tagging everything I’ve done over the years that did not have those programs is far from over.
Returning to the photographic subject, different materials can provide interesting textures: wood, glass, metal … In many cases have a macro lens will help but is not essential. A simple 50 1.4 can help a lot.
Finally, after a few examples, a little extra information about me. I am Sergi Albir, professional photographer. Usually working in Valencia (Spain) but I go almost anywhere whether to take pictures.
