Faces Faces Portraits of Emotions By Jair Ribbeiro Make a book with Blurb Book Preview

My name is Jair Ribeiro, I’m not a photographer. I prefer to define me as a Photography Lover with a different way to see the images.
My Photos are natural, I try to catch the moments naturally, I try to see the soul of the models or the things and places. Everything has a soul.. and I try to catch that in my pictures... the ancient indians probably will never let me take their pictures... we all know that story... the pictures take off the soul... something like that...
I’m a poet... the Photograph Poet. ‘cos I see my photos as a poetry and most of my photos has a poetry attached. When I take a picture of a girl, a friend or lover, I put my heart on that. I try to pass the feelings on that..I put my love, my friendship and my respect on that. So the pics comes. That’s my secret. That’s what I do...
While I’m browsing the Flickr, I can see the real Photographers... I should say some name, but we all know who are the real Photographers here, and watching their jobs I say to myself: “Watch and learn, boy!”. One day I want to be like them, expert with lights, poses, effects and all that stuff that makes the difference... but while that time don’t comes, I will keep trying, learning everyday, getting better everyday,,. taking pics everyday...and sharing that with YOU, waiting for YOUR comments and tips... and listening my heart, my soul and my eyes... until the day when I will feel myself a photographer... but.. what is a Photographer?
I love Black and White and Sepia Photos ‘cos I’m really afraid of colored photos... they’re so real and direct that do not accept or hide any imperfection. You must break your bones to make it perfect with colors, but with B&W and sepia, perfection comes naturally in a different way. Our eyes changes the way to see the reality when it is in B&W or sepia and is easy to me get a better pic this way... I do not know if is real or if it works only for me.. but that’s the way I see.
When I picturing a women... I try to feel her emotions, I wait for her best smile, I look for her best pose naturally, probably women are the best thing that God created after the Canon EOS and when I have one in front of my camera, I really left that images comes naturally as another gift of God to us. The miracle is there.. I just press the button, maybe in the right moment...
I love the smiles.. every smile has his story that could last forever only in a photograph... and when I can capture that story, that magic moment I know that smile will last... last forever.
My masterpiece is coming.. my best pictures are yet to come...I want to be ready when the time will come..

( be continued)

P.S. Normally I do not answer the comments on my photographs...for a sense of democracy..
. and actually I have no time to comment pictures.. but the good ones I find here in flickr I make it a it means that I love it..

    "Un pazzo! Un pazzo!
    Quest'uomo è un pazzo!

    Ma di quella pazzia che solo in Brasile... una terra che da sola è grossa come tutta l'Europa (Se si escludono le steppe sovietiche... ma questo non era necessario precisarlo no?)

    E se una sola nazione è grande come un continente... non è MOOOOLTO probabile che ne esca un personaggio sopra le righe, che si porta dietro una borsa di cultura e culture, ricordo e ricordi, sogno e sogni, e perchè no, anche mutanda e mutande?

    Perchè tutto doppio?

    Perchè quando sai trasmettere un'emozione, ti porti dietro ogni essere umano con cui hai condiviso anche solo un istante di ossigeno... e ciò che è di tutti, diventa tuo.
    Ma devi essere brasiliano perchè ciò che è tuo, sia sempre, indiscutibilmente, irrimediabilmente di tutti. Anche le mutande.

    E Jair è brasiliano.

    E anche Stella.

    E anche Paula.

    ...solo io no... uffa...

    "I write testimonials for contacts whose photography speaks to me, whose work I find a joy to see in my stream and who I have to catch up on when I get to spend time here these days - In short people whose work I would miss if they were not here - Liberoliber is one of that small group I have found who produce work that is intelligent, inspiring, perfectly executed and always a joy to see in my stream. He is willing to share images of his life with us as well as of his personal vision- a wonderful experience and you should check out his work if you have not already - Take the time to discover."

    "I was just surfing on the doors and windows photos on the internet one day when I happened to be directed by the links leading to Liberoliber's photographs. Since then, I became his fan. His photos became my faves. I love the way he takes picture, I can feel his emotion on each of his photos. One of my favorites is his picture of the beautiful Paula on her back at the door one morning with the beautiful natural light coming from the room. How I wish I could have also the same kind of photo. I asked my husband if he could capture a picture of me on the same angle and lighting and oh my.... he was not able to. Liberoliber is truly an artist!"

    "I have to agree with your own about me 100%! When I see your photographs, particularly of Paula, I think of poetry..a summers song..something happy. Your style is consistent throughout, your shots are special and your colours are creative. I will always be happy to see more!"
