Capturing Aura Portraits with @jalvarezcastillo

For more from Josefina’s #peoplesaura series, follow @jalvarezcastillo on Instagram.

For Buenos Aires art director Josefina Alvarez Castillo (@jalvarezcastillo), creative work is a way to bring out the best in people.

"As a creative director, I work to help people make their businesses shine with ideas and design," she says. "My work consists of making people see the beauty in things—but far more to see their own beauty, learning how to accept and love their inner selves."

With those goals in mind, Josefina created her own series on Instagram, #peoplesaura, where she captures portraits in front of circular objects or designs. As she explains: “The circle behind their head represent their holiness. I believe that we are all saints.”

Want to capture your own #peoplesaura portrait? Josefina has some tips to share:

  • "Start looking for circle shapes in the street, your house or wherever you are.
  • "If the theme of the aura is related to the personality of the person you are going to shoot, it’s even better!
  • "Look out for the symmetry in the composition of your photo and point your camera straight towards the eyes to capture their humanity better."

Less than two weeks until my Cape Cod summer is over and I venture back to NYC! Words cannot describe how excited, and ready, I am to be back at FIT.

S/B FACTORY: THE MAKING OF MODERN GRUNGE: Here I give you, the final edit and behind the scenes look at our 90s inspired photoshoot, shot by the talented Huy Dang. Styled by yours truly with a special thank you to New York Vintage, Albright Fashion Library, and JEN KAO for providing our lovely garments. Nothing more satisfying than shooting vintage Vivienne Westwood and a polka dot mink top.

Make-up by Kristen Therese, with hair by Andrew Deep. Track: Starla, by The Smashing Pumpkins

Finals.

With all of the stress between finals coming up, casting calls, shoots and shows, life is getting pretty hectic. But no complaints here! I am living, and i am happy. I can’t believe how blessed I am to be here and how much I love my school. 

For one of my classes my final is literally to plan, and execute, a fashion show. Like, how lucky am I do get to do what I love every single day? Its incredible. 

End rant.
