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 🙂 In this pictures the likeness & similarities are clear: I insert some highlightsto indicate what captured my attention.
My favourite kind of photography is “Street-Photography” and in this type we can find a great variety of photos: serious, documentary, humour, architectural, portraits… in the streets we can find a Universe! I like funny situations…so here you can find what I saw in the streets of my city: Lucca. I didn’t build ( create ) “fake” situations: in my snapshots there are only real scenes. In a next post I’ll describe my Street-photo tecnique.
On sunday I meet with my friends, we chat and we take photos. Below you can see my friends in action! In a little space there are a lot of interesting things 🙂
Who did say that men are not Saints?
I waited a lot of time in front of the fountain….until here comes a guy ( I pre-visualised this scene in my mind, so I decided to wait )
The translation of “Cicciotto” is “Chubby man” ( I have always a compact camera with me! I cannot lost a picture. )
Undecided girl: “All these toilets are the same..which toilet should I choose?” ( or all of them are occupied! )
…to take a good picture: I took this picture with an Ipad…and (of course) I edited with Snapseed. My suggestion is to use sometime a very old camera ( or a simple one) and try to concentate yourself only on the composition and not loose yourself into the technology of the camera.
I have an Olympus OMD E-M5 (2012)…and the question is: is it an old digital camera? Some days ago I think so, but nevertheless I took it during a rainy day…and below you can find my answer.
Five ( 5! ) years is a lot of time for a camera’s digital life…my camera can “live” for some time yet…I think that we cannot follow new cameras’ improvements. OK perhaps new cameras are better … but, before buying a new one, take a good look inside your one.. and think before you buy: “do I really need a new camera?” Sometimes an “old” camera can still take good pictures…and we can save money. The worst comment I ever heard:”Now finally I can take good pictures with my new and up-to-date camera for which I paid a lot of money”.Noooo!!!! You can take good pictures with a little disposable camera too!
A good street-photographer is able to hide himself in the shadows..like a panther that waits for a “victim” 🙂
In my humble opinion this photographer has a big reflex with a big zoom: everybody can see him from a long distance…to catch a good street-photo we need a little camera/lens, so that we cannot be notice or recognized as a photograph.
