Our current feature is dedicated to photographer Ismael M. Lopez, who is based in Algeciras in the south of Spain.
Ismael discovered photography by accident as in 2012 a friend gave him an "old" Nikon d70s as a present. He didn't had a clue about how it works, so decided to look for a camera manual on the internet.
Luckily he found an article about the D70s in a website about lighting, www.strobist.com. In
the internet Ismael could learn, how to light
After reading a lot about lighting, Ismael started to practice shooting some friends in a tiny space in his living room. At the beginning he was scared to work with unknown people.
Although he loves his "home studio", it was very limiting. So he soon moved outdoors to shoot portraits and fashion.
Ismael was influenced by a lot of photographers, but got influenced most by Joanna Kustra and Emily Soto.
