Story

Deserts have always inspired me in the most powerful and sensitive way. The emptiness of the wide-open spaces, the earthly colors, and textures always beautifully resonated with my whole being. This session was shot in the deserty area of Tenerife – Teide national park and it is one of my favorite sessions to date.

It was already blue hour when we reached that gorgeous spot. I always try to experiment and innovate my shots, so I decided to create a ‘longer shutter speed’ image to achieve the “ghost effect”. These are best to do when the light is not bright and you can play with the shutter.

And while the result is quite predictable, in some cases it turns out even better than you would expect. Never stop experimenting and doing the “reliable things”, rather settle for the “unknown” and get an extraordinary image.
