... In an inland Finisterre (end of the earth).


Ramiro (Valladolid, Spain)
, an inland Finisterre, as Rubén likes to call this little corner of inner Spain. He's chosen this land to settle, to be where Quesería Granja Cantagrullas was to be founded.But, ¿who is this Rubén? He is a cheesemaker, but not an ordinary one. He masters his job.I've come here with a group of fellow photography enthusiast like me, in a visit organized by Piensa en Foto to know Granja Cantagrullas project: a life project. Why do I say it's not that easy to find someone like him?Not because in just two years he's started from scratch a project that has led him to be one of the most renowned cheese makers in Spain.It's not because he used to be working for UN (advisor in development projects) with no previous experience in anything related to cheese making at all.Not because, now that many Spanish young people are leaving our country in their quest for a future far from our unemployment huge figures, he's decided to settle in a small corner of the inner lands of Spain.No, I don't even say so cause he's developed his mastery making cheeses working with methods far from the tradition in this part of Spain. Granja Cantagrullas produces cheese with raw sheep's milk with a concept wich is far from the pressed paste cheeses produced in Castile (the region of Spain where Cantagrullas is).The qualities that make Rubén so special are his honesty, his self-confidence, his illusion and passion. And that is infectious.......

Every year I run a few spectacular workshops abroad somewhere in the sun and always at visually inspiring locations. This year it was the turn of southern Spain and the area around Cartegena. We ran a similar workshop in 2011 and centered that event around an abandoned monastery. This year we used other abandoned locations including a mineral extraction factory, a military barracks, and mine buildings. Here are a selection of my pictures and the settings I used to create them.

 

Lighting kit per group:

2x Canon 580 EX2 Speedlights, 1x Nikon SB900 Speedlight, Lovegrove Gemini bracket, 2 Lastolite Jupiter stands, Pocket Wizard triggers and receivers. A silver umbrella, a reflector or Lastolite Ezybox. All the kit needed was supplied by us or shared among the delegates. The systems were simple and very effective.

 

Models: Natalia Warner and Olivia Ward

Local fixer: Mickie Imre

 

My camera kit: Fujifilm X-Pro1, 60mm, 35mm and 18mm lenses, Gitzo 3551 monopod, RRS ball head and L-Plate with grip. All Speedlights were in manual mode and triggered using the standard (non control TL) signals.

 

My fellow tutor on this event was Martin Hill. Martin is a top pro photographer and an all round great bloke. Between us we reccied the locations, surveyed the risks, organised the local support and made it happen.....

Goodbye Spain…. | MiKS Media Photography

Goodbye Spain…. |  MiKS Media Photography | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it

Few words on the Fuji X-Pro 1, to add. The shooting conditions were not ideal. High, late morning sun, and beautiful blue skies, with out a cloud, and Fuji did remarkably very very well. Auto focus was spot on, and the biggest plus… carrying a small camera with small lenses, and knowing that I have the same control over images as I would get from a much bigger an heavier DSLR system. Knowing and trusting, this little mirror less wonder, and using it on our trip in Spain was a pure, unadulterated, pleasure!

Fujifilm X-pro 1, travel companion | Alex Lagarejos | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it



So firstly, I have to apologise for going missing for so long, a house move and a crazy few months have kept me from updating the blog. Anyway, I'm back and to kick off I'm going to chat about my trips over the summer and how I coped with the x-pro 1 instead of my dslr. My first couple of trips, one to Wales and then one to Spain, I bottled it and took the 5d with me as well, I absolutely didn't need to, the x-pro didn't let me down at all and the longer I use the fuji kit, the more intuitive my way of working with it becomes. This is absolutely crucial for me, I don't even want to think about my kit when I'm working, and the fuji really lends itself to that, I can have everything mapped out on physical buttons so I'm not stuck messing about in menus instead of taking a shot. The absolute best thing about the Fuji x-pro 1 for travel is how compact yet sturdy it is.  The camera feels solid, balances well in your  hand and with a decent sling can be carried around all day without the usual ache from lugging a dslr with a few lenses....

Landscapes of Andalusia | Jonas Dyhr Rask

Landscapes of Andalusia | Jonas Dyhr Rask | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


As I promised in my Streets of Andalusia post, I am posting some landscape shots today. This is NOT my photographic territory, so please bear with me on this one. What I did find, is that Even though I only had simple prime glass with set focal lenghts I found both the X-Pro1 and in particular the x100s quite good cameras for landscape photos. Again, around dusk, the X-Trans sensor with its High ISO capabilities does NOT disappoint. So there you have it. Some landscape shots taken mainly around the Lake Vinuela area.....

Carla Monaco in the landscape and ruins of Fuerteventura | Damien Lovegrove | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


The small island of Fuerteventura is just off the coast of Africa and while it was snowing in the UK we basked in 26º sunshine. This is just the second time I’ve shot with Carla so I arranged a recce and a practice shoot the day before the workshop. I had done a provisional recce of the island and a shoot with my mate and fellow tutor Martin Hill at the same time in 2012. So we knew it was going to be amazing. This recce with Carla was just to refresh my memory and check that everything was still okay. Together we mapped out our shoot locations, decided on the styling for each zone and planned the lighting set ups.....

X-Pro1 - Bullfight in Spain | Patrick Cavan Brown | Fuji X-Pro1 | Scoop.it


A few months back I attended the last Bullfight of the season in Seville, Spain... a Mano-a-Mano match, 2 men, 6 bulls. Jose Maria Manzanares vs Alejandro Talavante, with Jose Maria as the victor. These are a handful of my favorites.

A day in the cathedral of Burgos (Spain), a jewel of spanish gothic, with the X-Pro1…

Parada ineludible de los peregrinos que llegan a la ciudad en su ruta hacia Compostela, la catedral de Burgos, dedicada a Santa María, es una de las más bellas construcciones góticas españolas. De hecho, gracias a su importancia histórica y artística, en 1984 fue declarada Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la UNESCO; un galardón que, a diferencia del otorgado a otras urbes españolas, recibió el templo de forma independiente, sin ir ligado al resto de la ciudad o a otras construcciones circundantes....
