This is life......

-- from fotonstudio - (?)
My favorite subject matter is portraiture, and this image, for me, resumes what a good portrait must have... a real/natural expression, feelings, a life behind or/and ahead and a look from and to the subject's soul.

ManojoTextured, SpecialEdition.

-- from fotonstudio - (?)
This a special edition for The World Trough My Eyes, I just wanted to thank all the admins for chosing me as the featured photographer of the week. This image was originally taken for the cover of a book of the University of Huelva. It mainly represents what I want to express with my Photographs ..... Respect, Diversity, Originality and specially Freedom of Expression. It was my first success here in flickr and one of my favorite images ever, that's why I chose it to be here. Thank You Very Much.

P.S maybe you want to see the original image, here's the link...

1: How long have you been involved in photography?

Since I was 6 years old. I got my first camera as a present and it was then when I discovered that what I wanted to do in my life was learning how to use that magic box. That means many, many, many years ago ;-)

2: Equipment you use?

My beautiful and powerful Mamiya 645, my old but still great Canon New F1, my wonderful Canon Eos1, my Konica/Minolta Dynax 5D and my little jewel, my Canon PowerShot A640, always with me.

3: Mac or PC?

I love Macs but I have to use both. Mac for graphics, images and creative activities, Pc's for internet and communications... but have a good antivirus!!

4: What inspires you?

The light, the moment, a face, a smile, a look, a backlight, a movement, a beach ...... all that and many more things.....

5: Preferred subject matter?

People, faces, backlights, beach shots... and actors.

6: Name one thing you haven't caught with the camera that you REALLY want to capture.

An Earth view from the Moon.... but it may take a long time to do that, so I'd rather say that would love to photograph the yanomami indians in Amazonas or the Noubas in Sudan... if they're still alive :_____)

7: When in doubt about your art, who do you confide in?

In some special friends, but usually I don't ask, it's my work and if I'm wrong it's just my fault, I assume that.

8: Qualifications/training in anything? ie: Photoshop

I studied Fashion Photography and Portraiture, Cinematography, Photoshop, DreamWeaver, Macromedia Flash, etc... I love computers!

9: Plans for the future?

Actually I'm bulding my new web site with my works, hope it will be online very soon... and to keep on learning, everyday, here in flickr and everywhere.

10: In one word, describe your photography.

It's a word that many of my friends, contacts, visitors and customers use, ..... Colourful.
