Well, in fact we rarely yell a “Smile!” (or the Spanish/Catalan versions of it “Patata” “Lluís”) when taking photos, what we really enjoy is being able to capture that authentic face expression. I also love doing photo sessions that have more planned poses because at the end is about capturing that second where your true self is there in your eyes, right?
Maybe you have noticed that we removed the banner from the website with the change of blog design. We are currently not taking many photography gigs with our alter ego “The cat in love” because our plate is too full and, to be honest, it wasn’t emotionally & economically rewarding enough for all the effort. However, this will be our third time with the Festivalet people because we truly love them: their talent, energy and passion is really something that I love to be close to, at least for a couple of days *smile*
Although we started only photographing the winter craft market (Festivalet), the last two years we have been capturing their children market (Petit Festivalet Culturista) as well. Precisely, the pictures in this post are from the first one that took place two weekends ago in Barcelona at the Design Museum.
The children market includes selected (cute) children brands, but also workshops for kids that are super inventive and with a cultural/learning background. For instance, they were encouraged to decorate a hanger that resembled a bird for the Papageno (Magic Flute) workshop or build a sculpture using ingredients from a veggie broth. Want to follow our camera a little bit around and see how it looked?
Do you have similar markets near you? Are you maybe one of the artists selling?
Next stop: We will be on the 15-16th of December taking pictures for the Festivalet winter market, if you are visiting Barcelona come say hi!
