Since I live in Munich, one of the things I love to do is walk around and photographing: Street Photography I would say. Obviously my passion comes from the fact that I grew up working as a Photo Reporter and often in the reportage you have to photograph in the street quickly, trying not to miss unprecedented moments.
These are some of the shots I picked during my day walk along the banks of the Isar River in Munich. A very busy area especially in summer. Photographing in this area give the opportunity to meet many interesting subjects, such as this:
The Hand in Lies
At first I thought, “I have trays, a hand comes out of the tree!” Camera in hand, reset exposure and zac!
I almost always shoot in the manual mode, although this sometimes penalizes me in speed, but I always want to have maximum control of the shot
After some photos, I optimize the shot and I do approach, silently, trying to figure out better what would be that hand that was still motionless between those trees. It was an old lady who was meditating! She collected and listened to the energy of the tree.
“My boy,” she told me, answering my request for explanations. “There are few things in cities older than me, when I find one, I stop listening to what it have to tells me!”
The Double Frame is my passion as photographer!
I think it’s clear: I like to frame my photos. Not just those to hang on the wall but also when I shoot them. It’s my job (not just mine!), but I always try to make strong cuts to my shots, always looking for a proper frame. I rarely cut the framing in development. In fact I would say that I try to make several shots of a subject with several cuts, rather than cut them in post production.
As you can see, another shot of the same subject. I’m always looking for new points of view becouse I think a same subject can tell different stories.
