Guest Post: Luiz Paulo.

Editor’s Note:  I have a great affinity for Luiz‘s work.  He skillfully captures his Muse — his daughter — in the midst of what I like to call Life’s Little Moments, and he does it with great sensitivity.  Luiz is a true artist and I feel privileged to present his work here today.

“May I collaborate with your blog and your “little” and precious community (I guess not so little as you’ve stated).

During my brief and so wanted moments that I can spend with my daughter (as you know she doesn’t live with me) I try to capture what I see and feel. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to the get one moment, a record, that will left into my hearth.

In the last few months I could take some photos that, just by chance, can somehow be as part of a series:

Lines and frames. Not a really novelty. But it just what is… Lines and frames…

Hope you enjoy them!

Thank you so much for the honour!! — again. 🙂 “

    Very lovely images of your daughter, Luiz! Nicely created, capturing the emotion at that very moment. She is gorgeous!

    Hola Luiz,
    Your beautiful images (of your equally beautiful daughter) are proof that when you photograph with the heart you can never go wrong.

    I am again envious of that great South American light….no need to worry about ‘high ISO’ in your back yard! 🙂

    Thank you Luiz & Peter.

      Hi Jason. In Brazil the light is interesting however usualy too harsh for my taste, however it’s true that’s I do not to worry so much about high ISOs. 🙂

    Gorgeous, thoughtful, emotional stuff, Luiz!

    Taken with the MM I presume?

    Congratulations on the work we all aspire to!

    Best regards,

    • Luiz Paulo says:

      Thank you Mark.

      I used the MM for 3 of them: no “name 2”; and both 1 and 2 “looking at me”. At the end I no longer have the MM…

    The “Looking at me” duo is very special Luiz! Thank you for sharing!

    Hello dear Luis,

    I’m a big fan of your work!
    I tell you with great sincerity: a great and beautiful exhibition is a must!
    With our friend Peter, and for some time now … Mark, you impose compliance with this photograph very refined, full of strength and poetry too!
    On the other hand, who? better than You … you can give so much emotion with so much love that you give and receive at the same time with your children!
    I am in awe as much art and passion!

    Again, Luiz, I say bravo for this beautiful book and for your beautiful “model”!

    Hoping that everything goes well on your side!

    Good luck!


    PS: I take this opportunity to make a big hello to Peter and to Mark!

      Obrigado Jose! Desculpe só ter notado seu comentário hoje, tanto tempo depois… mas palavras de um grande fotógrafo como você sempre devem ser agradecidas, ainda que tardiamente…

      Grande abraço,
