What I am though, is very careful in the preparation of my shoots.
So I prepare my brain to work backwards so to speak.
Specially when everything is going to be where you least expect it
And you build mock-ups on your desk and your computer.
Pre-light is essential. You need as much preparation as you can get.
And you go through the choreography that you have rehearsed in your head.
Adding to the mix a personality, who happens to be also the client because the spot is for his fragrance.
Rafa Márquez a star on and off the pitch
From the first moment we worked together I realized he gets totally involved and wants to understand what we are doing.

I'm writing this post during the summer in NY. And I discovered a great cold soup for the hot weather. It's called "salmorejo" and it's a rich version of the most popular gazpacho.
Salmorejo basically has a lot more olive oil and it's done in the blender whih is how you achieve the creamy texture.
6 to 8 pear tomatoes, half garlic, half a green pepper, some drops of vinegar, salt to your taste and at least half a cup of good olive oil.
Put it all in the blender and then store in the fridge.
