Indiana Jessy at the Jurassic Park "La Quinta Anabtawi"!

This image was done using 53 photos stitched together.

Working with Jessy is always fun,  this time we decided to relax and enjoy a sunny Sunday morning at our friend Riyad place " La Quinta Anabtawi, in Vistalba Mendoza.

We were there for our photography meet up, this was my last one as the group organizer, and it was the best one ever!

I did 2 panoramic photos, the one on top was done using 53 photos stitched together, I had to reduce the resolution of all the photos to merge them in Photoshop to prevent crash, I am hoping to redo it with even more resolution with a better program.
For the second one I used 26 images a bit faster to merge, but still I had to reduce the resolution of all photos again to prevent crash!

This image was done using 26 photos stitched together.


 I also used my small Lensbaby Circular Fisheye 5.8mm, extreme wide angle, not crazy with the resolution but it a creative tool, and I use it from time to time,

 Keeping the best part for the end, I shoot Jessy my bff and favorite model, this time my heroine was playing the role of Indiana Jessy in Jurassic Park, I processed all the photo in black and white for 2 reason, first I wanted to give the photo a vintage movie look and second all the photos were shot during the noon hour the worst time to take photo, harsh light not great for any photos especially for portrait. No matter how harsh the light was Jessy always looked great, as you'll see with this little story teller,                    "Indiana Jessy at the Jurassic Park!"
















Behind the scene!

Jessy having fun, like always during our shooting session!!!

The atmosphere the intimacy it's hard to explain, it's an experience you cannot miss, if you come to Mendoza you have to visit Zuccardi it is an absolute most!

My wish now is too go back to take more photos and get more info about all the fantastic activities that you can do when visiting Zuccardi.

I was fortunate enough to meet with the owner Jose Alberto Zuccardi and his daughter Julia "Santa Julia Wine my all time favorite wine, when I was in Alberta drinking Santa Julia Magna, I never dreamed that I will one day meet with Julia!!!,
Jose Alberto and Julia were so welcoming it felt like being in a small intimate winery, they kept that homey Italian style even if they are one of the largest producer with over 18 millions bottles per year! Walking through the vines and olive trees, smelling the roses and fresh herbs from the garden, I just want to go back!!! and I will.

Jose Alberto Zuccardi and I, so welcoming!

Julia Zuccardi and I, so welcoming!

Santa Julia, One of my favorite wine, when I was in Alberta drinking Santa Julia Magna, I never dreamed that I will one day meet with Julia!!!

The Spy with Jessy Cortes



This project was an amazing experience all done in a reduce space in the parking located under my apart.
Jessy was fantastic as always, she give everything she had, entering her spy personage like a pro.

The idea was to create a short story, with a series of original images plus processed all of the images in a  comic book format.

A lot of hours in front of the computer, I have to admit I love doing this kind of work.

I used my Canon 5D Markiii, Canon 24-105, 85mm and Lensbaby. The processing was all done in PS, except for the frame on the comic book format that was added in Lightroom,

It maybe a difficult post to upload if your internet connection is slow, but I didn't want to lose the details in using a low resolution, it can also be viewed on my website following this link, The Spy with Jessy Cortes and for the comic book format link " The Spy Comic Book Format".
