Knowing of Maria Guedes' background, I thought that she would be the right person to demystify some of the wrong ideas that many people have about blogs and bloggers.
This is one of those things I’ve been postponing for ages! And instead of sending an e-mail to all my contacts or posting just on web forums, I decided to post here as well.
Nop, it’s not a reference to The Beatle’s song. I just decided to move my website/portfolio and blog to the same place, under one single domain: www.goncalomcatarino.com
Since this is my own little cybernetic space and to end this series of posts with tips about how to be a (better) model, I decided I could share my own opinions about the subject.
Retouching (or post-production if you prefer), is one of the most underrated and often forgotten parts of a photographer's workflow.
The previous posts were more focused on models’ issues (part 1 and part 3) and also on the styling (part 2). It seemed logical that a few remarks should also be made about make up. So I asked Anabela Gonçalves, who’s been supporting the KAEOT project as well.
Tips, tricks and shortcuts to achieve something, can be displayed in several ways and the easiest to do it, would be to just list a few of the most common topics. But if you google around a bit, I'm sure you'll find lots of blog posts and websites with those lists. That's why I think talking to people who are actually in the business, can be more helpful.
On the first part of this post, I asked the opinion of a highly experienced model. This time, I thought that a stylist's opinion could also be useful to you.
On this recent interview for the blog Smart Dresser, by Mariana Paulos, I was asked a question about the frequent use of black and white (B&W). And Mariana wasn’t the first to ask this.
I decided to call my dear friend Kateryna, who's been a model for more than a decade, so that she could give you some very useful tips.
Today, we are celebrating here in Portugal, the Smile Day. And this seemed like a good time to mention a very wrong idea people have about models
I've always had a thing for the celtic culture, being the movies, books, their traditional tales and obviously, the music...
Labels… it really bothers me when applied to people. I get it that it makes it easy to categorize things, but they also limit our perception of things...
"Look, it's another blog! Great, that's all we needed...". I know, I know, you can thank me later :)
