My first ( and last? ) drone.

Ok, now I have a drone. I’ll stop with “traditional” photography??

Not at all! I think this is a very good tool to have a different point of view πŸ™‚ and, as you know, in photography is very important change the way we are shooting.

Now I’ll be in search of a good landscape to shot from the sky. This is my first video: the countryside of the city of Lucca, we are in the famous so-called “wine and oil road” in Tuscany.

A good exercise: play with differences.

As I said in another post, a good exercise in Street Photography is to look for similarity , But the opposite is also true: looking for differences:

Small sizes…and…large sizes..

Small size large size

 

Young and old

I’m different!

He’d like to be like Batman….but…ehm..

Stay always on the scene

When we find a good moment/scene to catch, we cannot stop at the first shot..we have to stay there to wait for other moments. In this case I found the result of a good chess move: before and after. Of course I asked the players a permission to take photos. Two images that must to be toghether like a very short film!

Follow ( interesting ) people..

..in effect..I didn’t follow that guy..because he was sat down at the corner. We can say that I followed his behavior: he was in the backlight, he was smoking…and there were lines of light toward him: a very good photographic scene.

So I took my little Sony RX100M3 ( a very little, but powerful camera ) and I waited for the right moment: a little smoke from his mouth.. here is a good photo: a profile made of light, geometric lines…and a little point of interest: the smoke.
Other important notes: only in the morning there is this type of light..the sun is low on the horizon ( so we have long shadows ) … there are few people on the street.. I had a little camera so the subject didn’t notice me πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

A little point

Can a very little point change the meaning of a picture? But, in the world of photoshop, did I add the little black point or did I remove it? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Answers: yes it can! Of course I added the little point. It was a “poor” photo but I noticed that the child was looking at the ground…so I thought to add a little black point to give a reason of curiosity πŸ™‚ Now I have a more interesting picture…but did I do well? Did I do the right thing orΒ I should have left it without retouching?

Likeness,similarity & analogy

I like photographs where there are likeness, not only in a direct way but also in different conjugations. You know that I’m stingy with words…so a picture is worth a thousand words….so please see the following examples πŸ™‚Β  In this pictures the likeness & similarities are clear: I insert some highlights to indicate what captured my attention.
