Burlesque show in Guadalajara

I attended to a burlesque show by Araceli De Anda in Guadalajara. Being used to classical ballet, contemporary dance and modern jazz, burlesque is something very new to me. I enjoyed this show that was based on the Wizard of Oz story. It was kind of bizarre, like all burlesque shows are, but also sexy and funny.

There’s a lot to learn to appreciate and understand this art form in a deeper sense, but you don’t need much to have fun and enjoy the show.

Intermoda 2013 casual fashion runway day one

img_0013

So I attended the Intermoda 2013 Fashion show at the Expo Guadalajara last week, and here are some shots I took from the side of the runway. It’s not my first time shooting a runway (other times here and here), but it was my first time with my Nikon gear shooting it, so I had some trouble with the autofocusing speeds and the constant changes in lighting. The lessons learned I posted them in my previous post.

I tried to take photos of the event in a little different way. Showing a bit more of the place, the crowd and the photographers in the press area at the end of the runway. I was trying to reflect being there, or the perspective of the models and not the typical magazine-like perfect shots. I’ll keep exploring, in the meantime, I hope you enjoy these images.

Local fashion show at Batiz boutique

A new fashion boutique opened up in my neighborhood. Veronica Batiz, chief editor of Intrend Magazine just opened up her new boutique of haute couture in San Pedro. I got invited via email and I couldn’t let pass an opportunity to shoot some models picutres. I like fashion and I get very few opportunities to be at these events. I’m still not that well connected in the fashion circles.

At this event, while I was expecting professional hired models to walk on the runway, you could easily tell they were all friends of the boutique owner. It was nice to see good local talent. The event was very improvised, but the clothes were very nice and everyone had a good time.















I wish her great success in this new business adventure.
