Category Archives: Personal Posts

Here are gathered all the personal posts I shared.

I started this blog in 2010, long before family photography was in my radar, and only started to translate to english somewhere in 2014.

So, to access all posts (in portuguese though) just click here.

The Way I View… Food

Food photography is not, at all, something I pursue and love doing. I’m also not much of a cook (I love to eat, not so much to cook).

However there are times, like Christmas that is just around the corner, where food gains a very important role. One of our traditions, which is essential every Christtmas, is my grandmother’s delicious broinhas. These last years, she’s not the one who makes them, but is always overseeing the process and I photograph it. I would definitely eat one or two right now!

Please drop by Patricia’s post after this.

The Way I View… the Night

What I enjoy most about night photography (besides the starry sky) are the colors. The colors of the night beginning under a cloudless sky, the street lights, the traffic lights, the cars, the rainy nights that leave those beautiful reflections and so much more. And that’s what I focused on for this month theme. Aveiro is not the most colorful city of world, at night, but I hope you enjoy these images.

And do not forget to drop by Dado’s after this.

The Way I View… Light

For this month we chose the most important element in photography: light!. It is light  that, by hitting our sensor, makes the image and that we always try to make the most use of to make an interesting picture. It’s something that we, as photographers, are constantly noticing: its quality, color, direction and even the patterns it produces. And this last topic, shadow/light patterns, was my focus during this month. They’re different images than what I usually make, but somehow, they have got my attention by the generated patterns.And lastly, the responsible for all of this, the Sun.

The Way I View… Summertime

(no english version available)

Para mim, Verão é sinónimo de família e praia. Não é uma praia qualquer, é aquela praia com aquelas pessoas. A praia, as brincadeiras com os miúdos, as conversas, os livros, as bolas de berlim, as caminhadas pela falésia, as idas a nado até à gruta (esta gruta!), o levante, as raquetes, os passeios de canoa e muito muito mais têm feito o meu Verão todos os anos, desde que nasci.

Este ano, pela primeira vez, foi diferente. Não estive naquela praia (estive noutra bem pertinho), mas mesmo assim, em cinco dias muito curtos, consegui fazer um pouco do meu Verão. Apenas levei o iPhone e a minha analógica e, por enquanto, aqui vão as imagens que fiz com o iPhone.

Depois, não se esqueçam de passar pelo blog do Dado.
