A Maria (Rueff) e o António (Homem Cardoso), na Aldeia da Pena, São Pedro do Sul

Pedia a Maria ao António que lhe tirasse uma fotografia, apesar de achar o pedido despropositado; seria como se lhe pedissem a ela, Maria, para fazer “umas piadas”, do nada. A cena aconteceu durante o ensaio para a rodagem de um pequeno filme promocional sobre a Aldeia da Pena (que a Chappa está a produzir),Continue a ler “A Maria (Rueff) e o António (Homem Cardoso), na Aldeia da Pena, São Pedro do Sul”

Praia do Forte, Funchal

Tentar captar a essência de um lugar em apenas alguns minutos é sempre um estímulo muito gratificante para um fotógrafo. Na minha última passagem pela Madeira dei comigo a redescobrir velhos cantos, becos de prazer para os madeirenses ou para quem lá vive. A Praia do Forte no Funchal é um daqueles lugares que nosContinue a ler “Praia do Forte, Funchal”

GFX 50s First Impressions

Unlike the vast majority of texts I’ve read over the last month or so this is not an article to let you know how awesome the GFX files are when it comes to detail, dynamic range, low noise and the lot – we already know that and to be honest it is a bit silly toContinue a ler “GFX 50s First Impressions”

Há homens únicos, pelo talento, pelo caráter

The real price – Fujifilm GFX 50S

Plenty has been said about the price of the new medium-format camera from Fujifilm. More often than not comments are something like “fabulous piece of kit, uncanny image rendition and quality, unbelievable sharpness and detail, the minus being the price”. I’m not a medium format user, although I used to be back in the daysContinue a ler “The real price – Fujifilm GFX 50S”

The ultimate Fujifilm X Series Lenses comparison

Fujinon XF 16-55mm f2.8 R LM WR versus four Fujinon primes: 16mm f1.4, 23mm f1.4, 35mm f1.4 and 56mm f1.2 We all know the commitment Fujifilm has to provide the best lenses one can have.

A better, peaceful 2017 – we desperately need it… Wars and terror must end.

Syria and the middle-east are a problem created and fuelled by the western world – I believe it is about time politicians in USA, UK, France, Russia, Israel and friends assume they have tremendous responsibility in the dramatic events that have been unfolding in that part of the world for decades. I’m not saying terrorism isContinue a ler “A better, peaceful 2017 – we desperately need it… Wars and terror must end.”

What do I see here? And you?

Eat as much as you like, from 1841 Brighton, England. What we’ve become: for £3.50 (happy hour) one can eat as much as one can. In this city alone, hundreds are homeless, many have nothing to eat, scavengers multiply. What if we go in and for £3.50 we may pack as much as we’d likeContinue a ler “What do I see here? And you?”
