Street photography February 5, 2020 Street photography with flash

A small sessione of street photography with flash made one evening at Vernissage Rome. I’ve used a pocket flash (the Q20 II) mounted on my Ricoh GRIII. As usual I had problem with trigger for remote control so I’ve used the flash directly on my camera. Essentially I tried to capture “long exposition” at night …

One of my last update on my Instagram account was a picture taken in summer 2019, in Rome. I was doing street photography before going to a musical concert, it was evening. I was crossing the street when I saw this nice couple. Quickly I’ve taken many shots passing by them but the exposure times …

Street photography December 31, 2019 Out of time and space: street photography

In this blog I want to talk about a particular street photography session during a night spent in a place out of time and space. That night there was a clear and starry sky and it was cold and foggy outside. I’ve spent about 12 hours in a place with a melancholy and depressed mood. There …

Street photography August 8, 2019 New photos in street photography gallery

I select only best photos for my gallery in this site. The images showed here are absolutely my favorite. These galleries are constantly updated.

Street photography May 7, 2019 My surreal street photography

Small series of surreal street shots taken by me in Rome. I love surrealism in street photography. These kind of images are so strange and enigmatic. Often I underexposed -2/-3 stop to obtain closed shadows and more saturation. To create more mistery and suspence usually I don’t show people faces. As I said in previous …
