I don’t like to take photos in a “standard way”:it’s very easyto go photograph the sea during the summer, while it’s more difficult do it in winter( and not in Black&White … uuufffff such a banality!! I like B&W but the sea during winter in black&White is a very commonplace. Following this “philosophy” some years ago I decided to take photos in a desert Luna Park during a rainy day…
Hello, yestarday I was looking at an historical palace because there was on its wall an intersting shadow, when I saw a girl that was walking along that wall…I noticed that there was an intersting geometric similitude between the street-lamp’s shadow and the girl’s trolley…so I started to take (a lot of ) photos. Please see here my little photographic story…and the final result.
I found a new kind of photograph: aerial photography. Of course I have seen a lot of that genre of photos, but I have never practiced it. But now I have a drone…and so…go ahead to discover this new universe!!
As a first step I’I started to looking for geometric figures ( and not landscape at now ):
When we find a good moment/sceneto 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!
..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 🙂 🙂
