Less than a month before @photopills camp in #menorca
i can't wait to share this crazy experience with friends we met last year and all the new photopillers.
we'll be there for light painting of course, but here's a memory from last year, doing something else we love: giant sunset. it was a super exciting moment, an idea by germán and raph, 2 pillars of photopills.

Have you ever experienced sun stroke? raise your hand if so ☀
eric was recovering from one when we did that shoot. it was the first time i would see him walk to the cameras instead of running during the shoot 😉 joke aside, i was impressed by his willpower, i would have kept sleeping if i was him! that's dedication right there 👊
Things usually take time to achieve.
we had a side project in mind when we went to uyuni last year. it was short dance film. we did a first attempt of shooting during one sunset. we only wanted to give one day to that project because the list of things we wanted to shoot there was long 😉
it ended up being quite challenging. and cold, as expected. the sharp ground was a surprise though, as the conditions out there didn't allow us to go where we wanted. it was quite difficult for me and at the end i didn't feel satified at all with what i did, without gaving seen any footage. it was just a "i know i could have done better" type of feeling. i was frustrated that i couldn't move the way i envisioned because of the freezing water and painful ground to move on. or my capacity to adapt to those circumstances.
at that point i was blaming myself for not being prepared enough. but that's a waste of energy. now i know i want to go back and try again, to finish that project or use the experience we gained to serve a new project.
