Martýn Alexandro...



Hello, my name is Martýn Alexandro. You may remember me from sites such as Flickr and JPG Mag :) Now, seriously, I'm a totally amateur photographer -the eternal amateur-, showing some pictures that I've taken through the years. I know that I won't be the next Helmut Newton -or anything like that- but I did take some good photographs. When I'm shooting I transform myself, I forget the world and all that I have in mind is the objective and what's beyond the camera. I see photography as the art of stopping time for an -infinite- tiny fraction of a second, and leaving it so forever. Hence, the name of this site. I like "organic" photographs, so, not that much post-processing [I seldom open them in PhotoShop, just in LightRoom]. I know they may look better with more post-processing but, that's just not my cup of tea. I really hope you like what you see and, please, do not hesitate to ask me whatever you may want to know or to criticize whatever you don't like (well-intentioned, constructive criticism is always welcome), and, please, don't hold yourself from telling me if you find anything that you really like as well. Thank you again for stopping by and have a nice day! Please like our facebook page and you'll get some freebies... P.S.: You can also buy any of the pictures here

Voyeur in B&W

Published July 22nd, 2014

I live in the very city center.

This is both good and bad.

It's good because you've got EVERYTHING (well, almost) at walking distance.

And it's bad, for example, because the moment you step out the front door there's a sea of people.

Well this is also a good thing, at least, during this time of the year.

Why? Well, since I'm a "voyeur" (in the sense that I like taking photos to people without they knowing, since I noticed that they look better when they don't know that I'm taking them a picture). it's the perfect place to go and take pictures of them all.

So, from my balcony (I don't even need to step out the apartment), I'm able to glimpse a little bit what's going on in the street...

This series is, well, a prove of that.

Why the pictures are in B&W? Well, a picture in black and white is like a phrase in Latin, it -almost- always looks good.

Then, why just girls? Well, even simpler, I'm a man. :)

BTW, if you appear in any of the photos (and, obviously, you can prove it). p ...

Sara (Fresh and Natural)

Published February 9th, 2014

When Sara contacted me to do some pictures 'for her work', I was a little reluctant at first.

Why? Well, let's put it this way: I HATE doing commissioned work (since I love to have freedom when I do pictures, and I just can't handle being pressed to do 'this and that').

But, immediately after I met her, I started changing my mind; then, when doing the pictures, I was completely sure that it was a great idea to do the session.

She was so natural, so easy to work with and, she has that freshness that a 'real model' cannot give you.

I cannot thank her how much she gave today.

As I said, she's so fresh and natural, that no 'professional model' could bring.

I just loved doing this photo set with her, and I can hardly wait to do more....

Cuitat Vella (Old City)

Published November 2nd, 2012

I just love Ciutat Vela (Old City) in Barcelona.

Yes, I live here and, yes, I may be biased, but I just love it.

The Gótic Quarter, the Born, all has a charm that's not common, IMHO, in any other part of the world.

It's just great to see how the old perfectly melts with the modern.

It's magic just to wander thru it's narrow -almost- pedestrian only streets.

During the day -summer and winter alike- they all burst with people -tourist and locals alike- window shopping and in the terraces of the myriad of bars that are in this area of "La Cuitat Comtal".

During the night, as soon as the sun goes down, people from all sorts of origins populate the terraces while others just wander around the place. It seems that the place never sleeps at all,

From the Cathedral to the shops, from the narrow streets to its terraces all has a charm that I haven't seen anywhere else... (It's not Paris, nor London, I know, but, be sure, it has charm in is it's own right)

From my Balcony

Published August 5th, 2012

Moving houses is always traumatic. This one was no exception.

Don't get me wrong, I'm more than happy now that it's done, but it was a pain in the neck doing it.

One of the things I love the most of my new apartment, is that, from the balcony I have a full view of one of the most commercial streets here in Barcelona.

These four pictures are an example of the Views From my Balcony.

No the best pictures of all times, but, enough to give you an idea :)

It's funny.

It's very funny.

But, as time passes, I'm getting better and better cameras, nonetheless, the best pictures I had, were done with the my old FujiFilm E900 Zoom.

Thus, I can fairly say that, this one, was the best camera ever :)
