The world without photography will be meaningless to us if there is no light and color, which opens up our minds and expresses passion. My photos are inspired by light, color, creative perspective, techniques & personalities.

Give me one hour and you’ll be amazed of how much of a better photographer you’ll become!

Lesson: Sometimes you just gotta let your subjects be. .

Things to remember when doing a #portrait:

* A clean background always helps
* During the shoot talk to your subject to help them relax
* Stark contrasting colors = impactful image
* Pay attention to your composition and whenever possible use The Rule of Thirds

* Note: Since today I am leaving Panama, I wanted to showcase another one of the riches of my country. The "diablito" is an iconic figure present during carnavales. .
I shot this portrait years ago during a a photo workshop I taught organized by my friend and great Panamanian photographer @titoherrera

Photo lesson: The rule is the closer you are to the reflective surface the more interesting and rich the resulting reflection/ photo will be.

Lesson: On Portrait Photography: A naturally- occurring portrait is more likely to capture the essence of your subject than that of a formal portrait. Observe, let them get used to you, and simply document what they do. If you are lucky, you might just capture a bit of who they ARE.

Special Note: During a trip up the Chagres River with @CarlosCruzPhotography, I noticed how our guide- a young Embera indigenous man- would pick up leaves and vegetation and examine these every time we stopped. Eventually, after I photographed him, I asked him what was he doing, and he said, "My grandfather is a medicine man, and he's showing how to read the plants in the forest."

* Be ready: This means your camera settings need to be already adjusted to allow you to capture the moment without worrying about the technical aspects. .

* React fast: If something crosses your path, the sequence should be: See it, focus, and capture the moment.
* Feel the moment: Allow your senses, your spirit, your mind, and your soul to feel the mood and energy of the moment.

This means if your subjects are happy, be happy with them. If they are sad, be sad with them. If they are suffering, feel for them. If they are angry, try to understand where they are coming from. If they are aggressive towards you, control your emotions, be professional, and most importantly don't forget you are a human being first and a visual storyteller second. .
Never forget, your photographic subjects are gifting you with an opportunity... don't squander it. Be respectful and considerate.

Personal Note: I truly don't know whether they were happy to be photographed because I was smiling. Or, I was smiling because they were happy to be photographed.
