~ A sunrise over the Sierra Nevada ~

One good thing about winter is that the days are shorter and it's much easier to wake up before the sun rises and capture landscapes like this.

Taken from my window in Granada, Spain.

~ La Basilique du Sacré Cœur de Montmartre ~

Just trying different things to get the creative juices flowing. It's so hot that I haven't been able to go outside to shoot. So it's back to editing older images!

A new Lightroom tutorial!

"How to easily add light sources in Lightroom."

A little trick to bring to life those unlit lanterns and lamp posts in your images.

#photography   #tutorial   #lightroom  
One of the most important skills of photography is Patience: Waiting for the right moment, and snapping that photo when all the elements work together. But it’s not always possible due to various reasons, such as time, permissions, accessibility, etc.. Luckily, there are instances where you can fix or enhance your image during post-processing to make it look the way you want it. Keep in mind that I am not advocating the “I’ll shoot and fix later ...

~ Dancing Maasai in Tanzania ~

Another shot of the Maasai dancing for us in their village near Karatu in Tanzania. 
Editing these images is challenging since the sky is very bright and their skin is very dark, not to mention the amount of dust that's in the air due to them jumping around (which reduces the contrast).

Challenging but fun though. Helps me improve my luminosity masking techniques.

So you think you can't capture stars, let alone star trails when you live in a big city with lots of light?

Think again! This was captured last night from our guestroom window in Granada, Spain.

1h30 of 30" exposures stitched together with StarStax and edited in LR+PS to bring out the stars more and layer the foreground.

A quick tutorial on how to correct perspective distortion in Lightroom 5.

Quite an easy procedure.

A shot of the beautiful Sheikh Zayed Mosque in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

One of the highlights of the city, and definitely not a place to miss, even during a short layover, as it's not far from the airport.

I find it the most beautiful during sunset. 

Have you been?

Story
Tagline
The World is but a canvas to our imagination.
Introduction
I'm a Travel, Documentary and Culture Photographer currently living in Granada, Spain. 
I spend my time documenting foreign cultures and traditions and share them on my website Canvas of Light
I also lead private workshops, photowalks and teach online as a lead photography faculty at the award winning MatadorU online university.

Personal Mission:

Travel is a luxury. Not everyone can (or wants to) afford it.

My personal mission is to share the knowledge I acquire during my travels. The world would probably be an easier place if people understood each other, the different cultures and traditions.

I don’t like sharing photos of misery and destruction. They might create strong emotions but never really help solve the problems. I’d rather share the “why” and “how” than trying to shock with beggars and hungry children.

Great food. Great tapas. A good spot to hang out with the locals, with very affordable prices.

One of those places of worship that blow you away as soon as you step in. The interior is so intricately decorated, you'll have a neck pain from staring at the ceiling. Highly recommended.

The best seafood tapas in the city. Los Diamantes has 3 branches in the city and this one is the newest with a more modern look. Food quality is great. It gets filled very fast due to its popularity though.

An underrated monastery in the heart of the city. Very few visitors come here and the place is often very quiet and empty. There's a nice cloister with lemon/orange trees inside, and the rooms are pretty bare since it's a monastery. However, the church inside is absolutely breathtaking. The entrance price might seem a little steep for a small place (4€) but the church makes it worth it.

A beautiful public park at the edge of the city. It's pretty big, with lots of paths and flowers. Worth visiting when the flowers bloom as it smells fantastic. There's also a little lake and a few workout machines. The park is very family friendly.
