Snapshots. Moments of life caught on the run

posted on 5th of june, 2014

When it comes to photography, I can't tell you much about exposure, F stops, ISO and other words which sound like gibberish to me, but I can tell you what I like to see and I have a crush on: those images taken on impulse, with no planning, no “say cheese”, no organized sessions, no MUAs, hundreds of lights, softboxes and light diffusers, backdrops, hair stylists and designer dresses.

Don't get me wrong technique can help you improve and grow, but for me a good picture, it stays in my head.

Rooney left too soon. Casillas has been defeated. Suárez humiliated England. On this year’s World Cup, we’re almost having a heart attack.

Every four years one of the most important sports events takes place. This year, World Cup is all about colors as it’s happening in beautiful Brazil. We might as well say we have colors and many unpredictable and spectacular moments arising emotions that range from agony to ecstasy.

It doesn’t matter whether you’re watching the game on TV, or you are there, on the stadium, alongside your heroes, it all feels the same: tears, joy, screams, laughter. It feels like every move on that field is yours, that every shoot towards your favorite football player is given to you. Your heart is beating faster, your head is about to explode...
