Promo shoot from Niño La Isla

May 24th, 2009

I recently met José Manuel Muñoz Granado, better known as “El Niño la Isla”, he was born in the Sta Ana neighborhood of Triana, of a Cadiz father (San Fernando), hence the artistic name. This Sevillian, or rather Triana, owns a small music studio in Triana, where he records his own songs, teaches flamenco guitar classes and produces some advertising jingles.

José called me to take the promotional photos for his first CD, which will have the title “Al Likindoy”. We walked through Triana with a suitcase of equipment, an assistant and with the light of a Nikon SB 800 portable flash through a Soft Box. We were very lucky with the beautiful late afternoon in Triana and I was able to mix the two lights, natural and artificial, to achieve these results.
