Here some results of the CPS+ Fashion Experience Day with the Canon team where I learned some new tricks with photographers Jorg Kyas and Tony Wellington and had a chance to test the new Canon 5DSR 50 Megapixels camera. Was great to try some fashion photography, a completely new field for me.
To be updated nowadays is a hard work, every day a better gear is available, and I can't stay behind. Today I got two of the newest lens from Canon, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM ultra wide-angle zoom lens, with the widest angle of view (126º05’ diagonal) ever achieved for a rectilinear full-frame Digital SLR lens and the new Canon 16-35mm f4L ultra wide-angle zoom lens features newly developed, high quality Canon optics that incorporate three GMo (Glass-Molded) aspheric lens elements, including a large-diameter aspheric lens, which help improve image quality by correcting aberrations.
Brutalism is an architectural movement that has always fascinated me, especially once I moved to the UK where I had the opportunity to personally contemplate a variety of buildings resulting from this movement. I have always had a strong desire to photograph “béton brut” projects, given the monochrome colours and the prolific use of geometric shapes. Unfortunately, there is almost no demand from my typical client base of architects and property investors for photographs of such projects. In fact, many of the projects have already been earmarked to be demolished to make space for modern architecture. Given these facts, I decided to hurry and turn this desire to portray this architectural movement into a personal project.
I chose two great iconic projects of Brutalist architecture in London, the Barbican Estate by Chamberlin, Powell and Bon and the Balfron Tower + Carradale House complex by Ernő Goldfinger. When portraying the Barbican, my eye searched for the details, the structure, rather than attempting to photograph the estate as a whole. The absence of colour sharpens my eyes to capture even more, the design, the texture of the raw concrete, the graphism created by not only by the design itself but for the curious shadows that such design creates once it is reached by the sun light, changing the landscape at all times. My first series, about the Barbican Estate, was completed recently. Here you can see a selection of 40 carefully selected images that illustrate, in all its splendour, the most beautiful part of this movement. My Balfron Tower + Carradale House photo series is underway and will be completed very soon.

After 6 years of hard work, it is time to say goodbye to my warrior Tamrac Expedition 5 Backpack Camera Bag, my equipment got bigger and this new generation of lenses are even bulkier, I had to move on and get a bigger bag, this time, I got the outstanding ThinkTank Airport Series and I really hope that it wil last even longer! Time will tell.
I couldn't wait another day to test the new 24mm TS-E II and the new set of Formatt ND filters that just arrived. I couldn't spend much time testing it, had a meeting to attend just after, but was enough to have a taste of what I will be able to do.
