Collection of photos from different perspectives of one of my favourite subjects: a former Savoia residence, now a UNESCO World Heritage site belonging to Politecnico di Torino.
Time to test some new creative techniques.
This photograph is the superposition of three different intentionally blurred shots. I sharply moved the camera downwards while shooting and closed the diaphragm to get this rather ‘impressionist’ feeling.
This shot portraits the beautiful geometry of the helicoidal staircase of the Vatican Museums. To convey the idea of movement I tried to take it with a rather slow shutter speed but fast enough in order to avoid the need to use a tripod: 1/4 s.
The way in which weather influences our mood and behaviour is quite striking. The same applies to images: each subject may give an entirely different feeling depending on light and environmental conditions.
This shot has been taken on a really foggy night. The result, differently from my previous works on the subject, is rather ‘ghostly’ and cold.
A thematic long exposure: my own way to wish you happy holidays.
The beautiful thing about architectural photography is that sometimes it suffices to see a subject from a different perspective to give it new life. Once you’ve done that, simply add some convergent lines to keep it formally elegant and that’s pretty much it: you got a brand new photo which you’ll certainly appreciate.
This time I just had to look up: that’s way too easy, isn’t it?
Anyone would notice after a stroll through Amsterdam that, due to extensive merchandising -which is quite everywhere in the city- and to the famous Museum, Van Gogh is somewhat a bulky presence in the Venice of North.
Nevertheless, one thing you wouldn’t expect is finding some graffiti outside a coffee shop which accurately depict the bygone painter set in one of his typical landscapes and with explicit references to his most famous masterpieces. This is just one of the many beautiful things you can find in Jordaan, definitely the nicest borough in Amsterdam.
