film summer days

this blog is called film summer days for a particular reason, i thought that the idea of shooting summer days on film was pretty interesting. this whole passion for photography, being it digital or analogue, hits me hard when i see a good light. that is actually what drives me to other photographers, it’s the way they capture light. i’ve seen many many ways of doing it, and sometimes i also see people capturing it in such a dull way, that i don’t think they know what they’re doing. others do it like magic.

and one thing that happens to be interesting is the way light appears and is felt in different parts of this world! for example, people in london or seattle (which i think is also known for its rainy days) will capture light in a very different way that people in san francisco or lisbon will do it, as these places are known for glorious sunny days. and i happen to be in lisbon and in general portugal is a sunny country.

and how about you? where do you live?

these last two were taken on the camping park where we spent our summer vacations! i love this camping park so much! everything is so good, there are a lot of trees and we happen to love to have our breakfast sitting in front of the pool, first thing in the morning, while almost everyone is still sleeping.
