90 seconds of Camp

After 15 years I have returned to the camp, obviously things have changed a lot. I personally thought that the balance was positive, I had a great time, I met many people I did not know and thought that the children had a great time (which is the most important thing).

Here is an example of what happens when the night prayer ends and the head (Ernesto Colomer) is sending the teams to sleep, some go through the bathroom, others go straight, and this picture summarizes it very well:

  • Location: 40° 24.6711′ 0″ N 0° 24.9194′ 0″ W
  • Shutter speed: 90s

It is another curious point of view, soon I will bring you more, be alert.

As a video I will leave a song that children liked very much, and that it was very good for them:

Fiberchannel deployment in Gavarda’s bridge

Thursday, after a long time without going out at night (with the usual group, some little thing I have done in the camp), we went to the bridge of Gavarda (an old known). We are looking for lightnings, but they decided not to come. Augusto told Carles: “Take a picture of us, please, David and I started dating together (to take pictures) a long time ago and we have few photos together.” Said and done … this is the result:

EXIF:

The soundtrack is a classic that I have remembered this camp:

Innovative Falla

Yeah, I know I’m going to be a bit late, but I’ll catch up.
The photos that I bring you today are from March of the year 2015. The Falla of the Av Blasco Ibañez decided to bet on the innovative Fallas. Not only in how to build them and the materials used, but in how to involve all the people in the choice of the Falla, construction and assembly. When Jaume was telling me everything they were doing every time I liked it more. I found it very original and at the same time a very reasonable way of doing things. The Falla I also liked, of course!. The work was carried out between Augusto and I, I do not remember what each one did (a long time ago), but many thanks to Jaume for opening the workshop doors and holding up late so we could do the photos.

The soundtrack will be more recent… so much that it’s a video uploaded today of the Youth Band, but the Christmas concert (I can not deceive you) where Jordi, Ivan and Elena play a great role and where it is shown that every year Cristian (the director) raises the bar and I do not know where it will be.

Last day of 2016 in Cabanes

Some friends spent last day of the year in Cabanes. When I knew the destination of the trip I looked for locations to make the exit of “light painting” that begins to be tradition. I noted 4 places: The salt tower, very close to the sea that we visited during the day. The top of the Bartolo, which we did not know to arrive by car (because it was at night and because it was prohibited), the Carmelite convent of the desert of the palms and the bow of Cabanes (of which you have photos below).
There we were the four daring (Bernat, Fernando, Edu and I) we left soon to try to catch blue hour or similar and come back soon. We went first to the convent, we saw it from afar, because getting closer meant arriving at night to Bartolo. After changing a few times the location of the shot I bring you this one:


EXIF:
  • Aperture: ƒ/8
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • Focal length: 40mm
  • ISO: 100
  • Shutter speed: 10s

From there we could go out to The Bartolo, practically at night, and when the final leg was already beginning, there was a sign that forbade the passage, so we will not get up. We went to plan “b”, the bow of Cabanes, which already caught us closer to home and in theory was easy to access and nice:


EXIF:
  • Aperture: ƒ/6.3
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • Focal length: 16mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 319s

Well, it seems nice to me, and was easy to access, but the photo… took its good number of attempts. I think all the cars registered in Cabanes passed by. My friends were guiding me while I “painted” with light the bow and got the photo I was looking for. Finally and with the help of my friends, we were doing tests with the lights that took and came out this:


EXIF:
  • Aperture: ƒ/5.6
  • Camera: Canon EOS 7D
  • Focal length: 16mm
  • ISO: 200
  • Shutter speed: 121s

The songs will be played today by Antonio Flores and Ana Belén – “Solo le pido a Dios”, a song by Leon Gieco to commemorate the school day of Nonviolence and Peace .

Storm

Yesterday it all kicked off, I was watching “Vigilados: Person of Interest” (that I recommend) and I reacted late. I take out the tripod, the camera, I mount everything from the balcony of my house and started shooting (also seeing big lightning between two takes).

As I arrived late storm was moving towards Alginet, but in this you can see all the photos that has lightning in it piled with gimp.

A girl who’s starting on saxophone will bring us the soundtrack (it’s not the kind of music I like, but the girl does veeeeery well):

Musical Photos (repeat)

When I’ve posted the previous post “Musical Photos” with photos that we prepare for the book of Santa Cecilia 2015 of A.M. l’Artística de Carlet, I realized that one of the shots (which simulate a small band with new musicians), I had left to be added to the final version on of the shots, one of the background that completes the picture. After offering the appropriate apologies to Augusto for the mistake, I said I would put the corrected photo, here you have:

And to accompany this photo (now more cool, huh?) I bring you a video of the Playing for a Change, the Celebration of Cool and the Gang

And here’s the original version with tenor sax and all… hehehehe

Musical Photos

On October 19 new musicians got together with Alberto and Augusto with the mission of taking pictures of the new musicians for the libretto of Santa Cecilia.
Alberto is responsible for the “traditional” picture ended up being a photo from a very original perspective (which is ultimately where you can view in the libretto). I also asked for help from Augusto to make an idea on my head in “night” mode. The idea was that instead of looking only 4 musicians, we formed a small band, appearing several times repeated every one of us.
I must say it was late and we all had something in a hurry, so we could not risk and do it all in one take. We went and did multi-exposures (and thanks that we did well, or it would have been a disaster).
Here you have 6 shots for the first picture:

And here the first result to stack all the shots:

This time simplest implementation for very impressive results:

The tune today relays on Daniela Andrade, a girl I knew because it was part of the soundtrack of a chapter at Suits (a highly recommended TV-Show):
