AriCaFoix's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
Me llamo Ariel y vivo en Santiago. Soy estudiante de Biología Ambiental y me gustaría dedicarme al área de conservación. Vegetariano desde hace 9 años.

Creo que siempre me ha gustado la fotografía, pero fue un paso importante cuando aliciaSatie, en Enero del 2011, me ofreció su Canon EOS 450D. Desde ese momento he aprendido lo que sé de manera autodidacta.

Me gustaría en algún momento poder considerarme un fotógrafo de naturaleza y que mis fotos pudieran ayudar a enseñar, proteger y conservar, también a denunciar y exponer el sufrimiento que vive la naturaleza.

Normalmente siento aversión por el mundo que se ve a través de la pantalla de tv, en los discursos falsos de políticos, ese artificial mundo feliz, desarrollado y justo... que no logro ver. Intento también, a través de la fotografía, mostrar ese mundo que yo veo: los que luchan, los que han sido abandonados.

Me parece que al ver mi galería se podrá ver algo así como una combinación de los dos últimos párrafos.

My name is Ariel and I live on Santiago. I'm studying Environmental Biology and I want to specialize in conservation. I'm vegetarian since 9 years ago.

I think that I have always liked photography, but an important step for me was on January 2011, when aliciaSatie offered me her Canon EOS 450D. Since then I have learned what I know self-taught.

I would like at some point to consider myself a nature photographer and that my photographs could help to teach, protect and preserve, also to denounce and expose the suffering of nature.

Normally I feel aversion to the world shown through a TV screen, in the false speeches of politicians, the happy, developed and fair world.. that I can't see. I also attempt, through photography, to show the world that I see: those who fight, those who have been abandoned.

I think that by looking at my gallery it can be seen something like a combination of the last two paragraphs.

Hello everybody, it has been some time since the last time I wrote here...

Last night I took a photo (on the last time it has been a little difficult to me to take photos spontaneously like before), and although when I was taking the photo I liked it in color, I processed the photo to B&W... and the then I was facing the great dilemma that's very common for me (maybe for some of you too?): do I keep-upload the colored one or the B&W one?

I really love B&W photography, specially street photography or some other motives, but some photos really stand out on it colored versions. I think that you will understand what I'm trying to say. Well, this happens to me a lot when I compare the color version to the B&W version, and sometimes its very hard for me to decide >_<

This time I wanted to make a little poll... oh, I forgot that polls are exclusive for people with paid accounts -.-, a opinion-journal-poll.
I don't know if many people will participate, but regardless of the number, I would really appreciate your opinion or experiences about this :)

Now, this is the photo that I took last night. I have a few other photos of stray dogs, they really get my attention (and many times I can't help but pet them for a while). It's a terrible and sad reality in Chile, there are over one million of stray dogs living in the streets (over one million!!). I always think then I pet one of them "how long has it been since the last time someone pet him? since the last time he felt love?". I don't know if many people think about that when they see so many dogs :(

Anyway, like others photos, I tried to catch the loneliness that stray dogs face everyday, specially at night. But I don't know if that's better "transmitted" on the color one or B&W one...
