Max Lopez is eighteen-years-old and even though he says photography is just a hobby, he has an eye for those precious moments only seasoned photographers seek to capture. Photography has become a way of life for him as he says, “I need to go out with my camera almost every day.” If he doesn’t, he claims, “I feel a bit empty.” Living in Barcelona, Spain, he spends his days clicking and preserving every moment.
“I usually play with lights and shadows when I take pictures. In this case, I took it to a portrait. The sunlight focuses on her eye and creates a depth in her gaze.”
“I like photographing strangers and capturing moments. And I like this one because of the smoke of the cigarette. It kind of symbolizes that she is thinking.”
“Again playing with lights and shadows. This is a picture in the middle of a big street in Barcelona. It’s full of people out there but you can only see two of them because of the accentuated darkness of the shadow.”
“You have infinite possibilities with a camera. You can transform a static picture into a moving one.”
“A frozen lake is a good place to take pictures. You have the white background and the natural light reflecting on the ice. There’s also something magical when you’re walking on a frozen lake. The atmosphere is very quiet.”
“I’m always excited when I find a new way to take pictures. Now with my analog camera I’m trying the multi-exposure option. I enjoy it because you can create strange landscapes just by taking a few pictures in the same frame.”
