Behind The Lens

Location
I take this shot in Parma, Italy ... The city where i live and my first source of inspiration
Time
I take this shot at 5-6 PM , when the sunset is near and the shadows are long and exaggerate
Lighting
The time when i take the shot has been the most important thing because this type of shadow is created only in this situation
Equipment
Nikon D7100 , sigma 17-50 and nothing else
Inspiration
Some shot of other photographer , Magnum photographer primaly... But i have think of this photo because i want use this type of shadow for create a serie called "The Big Shadow"
Editing
Yes, i've used it. I have used camera raw and i increased the contrast, the dark and the shadows... I have also used the 16:9 composition
In my camera bag
My Nikon D7100 and some lens.. Sigma 17-50 and Nikon 35mm
Feedback
Choose the right moment of the day, the right position and wait (maybe some minutes) the right situation. Remember to study the place and how the shadows are created... Carpe diem.. The sun moves quickly
