Have you ever wondered what went into creating the most iconic images? In this insightful breakdown, see how photographer Alexis Cuarezma shot one of his favorite images.
In this informative ten-minute video, released by San Francisco-based commercial photographer Alexis Cuarezma, he takes you behind the scenes of how how he created this moody and cinematic image of boxer Juan Funez at the Ten Goose Boxing Gym. In this episode, Cuazerma recounts that the athlete was not feeling well, and his entire pre-production had to be changed in the blink of an eye. He explains that as professional photographers, we always have to adapt to the situation and walk away with great images every time.
By the time I finished the video, I didn't even feel like ten minutes had past. The way he explains his process is so easy to watch. I left feeling inspired to go out and create better images and developed a deeper understanding of what it takes to consistently make great images.
This video is part of a ten-part series Cuarezma is releasing over the next few months, called "Breaking Down The Vision." In this series, he dives deep into the details of his most iconic shots, and breaks down his lighting choices, camera settings, and the stories behind them.
