Photographer Adelfredo Mendoza just started being serious in the world of digital photography during the last 2 years, using a canon 600D and enjoying it as hobby. He is taking pictures of couples, engagements, friends and events. Adel is an artist and loves taking photographs. He joined some photography community to learn and practice more about photography technique. So his technical skills and artistic ideas help him to improve his photography skills.
Now, Adel is specializing himself in fashion and portrait photography. He also loves taking pictures of landscapes, cityscapes at night, in black and white and abstract.
He’s been motivated by other photographers, which also challenge him in a way, that he looks at their pictures and asks himself “why not, I can do better”. Adel likes to post his work in a facebook group, on Flickr and 500px to get some feedback or constructive criticism to improve his photography. He is so thankful, that most of his works get a good feedback by the pro photographers. That really motivates him.
Adel loves to take photos outdoor or on location with a mix of flashes/strobes and ambient light. He shoots in manual mode and
raw format, as it is more flexible for his post processing work flow. As post processing software he uses Lightroom and Photoshop and NIK software. Most of the time now he uses the Nik software for his tone contrast and Vintage Film Look effects.
In the next few months Adel hopes to come much more into the photography for portraits, fashion and modeling business, but also he plans to be involved into wedding photography.
He is able to shoot at any location as long as it is available, accessible and there are no restrictions, especially outdoor, Adel loves to take portrait shoots in urban city areas, at the beach and in abandoned places.
In the 1st week of July he will attend a workshop called Off Camera LIGHTING (Indoor and Outdoor). This will help him with his first implied nude photography, which is tentative the next project scheduled on mid of July 2015.
The gear of Adel was a Canon 600D with 70-200mm F4L. He was using it for 2 years, but then decided to switch to a SONY camera, the Sony mirror-less A6000 with a E50mm f1.8, Samyang 85mmf1.4 (manual lens) and he loves it. It is really great to use the new equipment and since then he won a 1st prize of Sony Store Singapore Photography Contest. He currently decided to purchase the Sony mirror-less Full Frame Camera, the SONY A7 and he now is really happy with his decision for the new equipment.
Most of the recent shoots were taken by this SONY A7+SAMYANG 85mmF1.4 with an off-camera flash YN568ExII plus a Firefly Foldable Beauty dish and off course behind the camera was him, Adelfredo Mendoza
