Capturing light and souls

The photography of Manuel Libres Librodo. He photographs beautiful women. Children. Monks. Blind old ladies. Light. Souls. But mostly, beautiful women.

Excellent stuff! He certainly has an eye for the ladies, but I'd say he has a fine eye, period.

If by "beautiful" you mean "photoshopped to hell and back"

He is as much as master of the art of Photoshop as the art of Photography (as evidenced by these photos of the same woman). His photos of Rosalinda, I think, best showcase both arts - never have wrinkles and a handicap been more stunning.

Well, yes, I did actually mean that. Something photoshopped can'te beautiful?

The last link looks a little too airbrushed for my taste.
The first "beautiful women" link quite literally made my jaw drop. The rest of the photos are just as great. Awesome find.

Adorable little girl

I agree that the ladies do look slightly airbrushed but I guarantee they still look bangin hot in real life.

Those photos of Rosalinda remind me of this guy's style.

Here's a personal favorite of mine.

How do they both get that distinct "look" in their photos? It's gorgeous.

So many excellent photos, but this one really knocks me out.

Call me shallow, but I would marry this woman, no questions asked. I would learn a second language. I'd probably even end up converting my religion if I had to.

I love these, thanks.

Beautiful people photos....some of the best I've ever seen.

Yeah.... not so keen on photoshopping out the texture of the hot chicks' skin.

Not too much of a difference for me between this and the pretty, shiny pictures I see in a glossy mag. Lacking the soul, heavy on the cheese factor.

(and before you link me to one of his children gazing soulfully into the camera, I'm gonna have to say that does not constitute soul. Nosiree.)

I was expecting souls. :(

Really? I'm somewhat meh about the rest of it, but Rosalinda is pretty striking.

andihazelwood: thanks for those comparative links. IMHO there is photoshopping and there is outright fabrication. Changing someone's eye color is outright fabrication.

I have never seen someone who can look so incredibly different than this woman: Kharu. She should be a supermodel - she can look like anything! The photographer calls her a chameleon. (Same woman Parannoyed wants to marry).
