Who are you and what did you do?
My name is Isabel Nolasco, I’m a Portuguese photographer and I live in Lisbon, Portugal. I’m also a traveler and lived abroad for 10 years. I keep traveling as much as I can and my favorite subjects are travel and street photography.
I am also a co-founder of FPoint Collective which was launched in mid-2019.
My partners and I each have specific skills and is passionate about different fields of photography. But we all agree on the following: Good images go beyond technical aspects; they tell memorable stories.
Every month, we announce a new theme and invite our followers to submit photos to be
featured on our social media pages. We also share our interpretations on our blog.
What does your typical day look like?
I’m a doer, so my days are always filled with the many projects I’ve been embracing. My typical day in Portugal would be spent mostly photographing or in front of my laptop, writing, exploring, and editing photos. Besides that, I go to the gym and hang around with my kids and friends. And, if I’m lucky enough to have the golden hour just for myself, I grab my camera and wander around taking photos.
How is your workspace setup?
I just have my laptop on my dinner table and a window with an inspiring view.
What hardware do you use to make your content?
I use my Macintosh for my work. I have a Nikon D610 and several lenses. The lens I use the most is the Nikkor 50mm 1.8, followed by the Nikkor 85mm 1.8 and the Youngnuo 35mm 2.0. I like fixed lenses but for concert photography, I use the Tamron 70-300mm 4-5.6.
Lightroom, a bit of Photoshop and Adobe Elements, and, sometimes, for a bit of drama, some HDR plugins like Nik collection.
