Such a creative contrast in the elegant precision of your camera angle and the worn homeliness of the architecture. A bit reminiscent of Edward Hopper in coloration and tone. Well done, well done.

Behind The Lens

This was a recent trip to Italy. My sisters and I visited the small island of Ischia. Off the coast of Naples, this island was the birthplace of our grandfather. In celebration of our fathers life, the three of us wanted to see where it all began. Ischia did not disappoint. The island was lush with farms and wineries, and famous for their lemons the size of cantaloupes. The cuisine was amazing, everything was literally from the backyard garden to the table, the seafood, fresh caught daily. And known for its healing thermal mineral springs, the island was a paradise.
The island closes for siesta every day between one and two o'clock, and that was our time to explore the small villages and towns. The scenes were filled with archways and staircases, villas and gardens, and balconies terraces.
As this was shot midday, the shadows you see are from the high summer sun

As we walked the streets, I was looking to capture the innocence and old world charm that we all felt
All post processing was performed in Lightroom. Because I wanted to give the feeling of twilight, I dropped the exposure a couple stops, moved the white balance to very cool, then added yellow lights to all the necessary places
In my camera bag
The bag I tote for general use usually holds my Samsung NX1 a 20mm f2.8 prime, a 45mm f1.8 prime and a vintage Leica 90 f4. A fourteen inch tripod that expands to 3 feet, extra batteries, sd cards and a folding reflector.
To turn day shots into night, look for doors and widows that can be lit. Sharp crisp shadows convert well to moon lit scenes
