Bellydance in Marbella

Two and a half months ago already, I was asked to shoot a bellydance show in the Blackbox Theatre in Marbella. Nice one, I like that kind of assignments. Came early to checkout the theatre. It was a black box!!! very nice little theatre. I decided without asking (to avoid the 'no´s') to put an sb-800 with triggers on either side of the stage just behind the first wings pointing into the stage where they crossed in the middle. I filtered them with 1/4 CTO and put the dome on both of them and zoomed the heads out to 24 mm to get as wide of a beam possible. I put the power on 1/8. Camera (fuji S3) on 800iso and shot on f2,8. Again you keep the original stage lights and have nice keylights on faces. Gives them I crisp feel imo

Bjorn Again on San Roque Golf Club

Last Friday I went to San Roque (near Algeciras) to photograph Bjorn Again. Great musicians (and look-a-likes) performing all the ABBA songs. What a pleasure to photograph (also a good chance to put the Nikon D700 to the test....yes it happily made the test!!). Great music, the musicians had a lot of fun and not to mention the audience!!! Big big party
They put up the stage on the shooting range of San Roque Golf & Country Club so plenty of room on the field and they converted the shooting building into the VIP and media area. Very well organized. I was not allowed to put any strobes on stage so I had to use the available light. I put my camera on 'automatic ISO' with a minimum of 1/60th shutterspeed and a max of 3200 ISO
This works excellent in this mode the camera searches for the best ISO value with a 60th shutterspeed. I include a few photos

San Miguel beer

Always nice to see your work published......this time I was commisioned by an agency from Barcelona for an 8 by 3 meter billboard for San Miguel Cerveza. I shot the famous Malaga Picasso Museum, they superimposed the bottle.
Yesterday I saw that they made some slight changes for the upcoming Malaga Fair next week. They imposed a flower and new captions. All around the capital Malaga now :-)

Quidam; Cirque du Soleil

If theres magic in this world, then for sure Cirque du Soleil is part of it!! Quidam is the 2nd show I photographed while they were on tour visiting Malaga. Its almost a shame I have to photograph because you do miss a lot while shooting. No flashes are allowed so its artistic photography you have to focus on......
