Own you style

Own your style.

OWN IT!

So last night I attended an event, The photos in this post are from that night. During the event, I got to thinking about style, what is it and what is my style?

I am going to talk mainly about my portrait work. I have a slightly different style for street and landscape photos.

First, let me try to define, what is style?

I feel it is the specific “look” a photographer develops over time and experience. Put it simply, it is what I like to see in photos.

How did I develop my style?
I’ve taken thousands of photos, looked at more, visited art galleries and read a lot of art and photography books. I consumed and created. Experience and creative work is probably the most important thing I have done to develop my style. Either behind the camera (most of the time), or drawing ideas. I try to create something daily. read more

My Morning Routine

My Morning Routine

I wanted to test my GoPro Hero 5 Session’s abilities.
Dark, indoor, overexposed, outdoor, motion.
I pretty much put the little camera through its paces. I think I tried everything, you can see where it held up well, and where the footage fell apart.
Overall I fell it was a decent test and a look at what we do every morning.


What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.

What my camera saw.

It has been 5 months.

5 months since the island of Puerto Rico was ravished by Hurricane Maria. I went to Puerto Rico at the end of January just to put my eyes on the devastation that the people experienced.  Lots of work needs to be done, but I want to share some of what I saw, and a little taste of what my camera saw.

Check out my article on Medium to read what I wrote a few weeks back.

Animated some photos

I always say in my trainings that motion is the future. What do you do if you only have photos? How do you solve this issue? You animate some selected still photos so they have motion in them. An easy way to add some eye-catching movement to your photos.

Here are a few animated gifs from photos that I created:

I especially love the first one from Mar Chiquita in Manati, Puerto Rico. All were captured in Puerto Rico 2018 and created on my iPad.

New Video from Puerto Rico

What have I been doing recently? Well I traveled to Puerto Rico to see how things are with my own eyes.

I captured tons of content. Which is visable on my two Instagram accounts @giovanni_arroyo_photography and @gdotarroyo.

I also took my 3DR Solo with me and captured aerial video. The first of which I am sharing above. You will be able to check out more on my Youtube Channel.

All photos and video were captured with my travel trifecta: Fuji XE-1, GoPro Hero 4 Silver or iPhone 7 Plus.

Don’t you want to visit Puerto Rico? There is a lot more to our island than just Old San Juan.

Parkwood Elementary Cares!

This past weekend we packaged boxes for Puerto Rico and Mexico. I captured and edited a short video showing all of us at the elementary working on putting the donations into large flat rate boxes so we can ship them.

Shipping over 50 boxes will be expensive. While Parkwood has raised some fund, they still need more to ship the packages. This amazing community has stepped up and donated the goods, can you help by paying for one box to be shipped?

Contact me [email protected] to be part of the solution and send funds electronically via PayPal. Please make sure you make a note that it is for Parkwood Elementary. I will make sure it goes directly to the Principal. read more
