Back into my photography 

From the streets in a city to learn about landscapes and villages around here. Not so easy.

Well, Simon, you did not loose it! You still manage to paint wonderful with the light.
Like the old Dutch masters.

Beautiful shots, Simon. Perfect composition and colors.

Damn, I miss Italy! 3 1/2 years since our last visit. Maybe we'll make it this August to celebrate a friend's wedding in Friulia...if the virus permits.

RE: Back into my photography (in reply to Escribano

I started shooting B&W in the pre digital days, pan-x I think, I think this helps a lot with composition, although with today’s digatal tools it’s easy enough to fix... but not really and it’s a trap of sorts.

What’s cool about digital is one my shoot a lot more to get that shot, bracketing costs nothing, and most digital cameras can be set up to take a handful of shots with various settings at the blink of an eye.

Later I was shooting skateboarding and that up shot was de rigor so I became used to use of the not typical angle regardless of the setting. It’s fun to incorporate into street photography. I’ve been using I little digital Licea fir a decade now and I had a look down viewfinder that I found to be vary intuitive, I lost it and haven’t been able to find one that I could afford...

Thanks everyone. I am surrounded with such beauty, so I will now do my best to record it.

I am running in a new lens but on a 10 year old digital camera. All Fujifilm.

RE: Back into my photography (in reply to Escribano

I am envious too. My wife and I were giving serious consideration to moving there for an extended stay but alas the pandemic hit. Now am hoping to get there for a few months after spending the winter in Madeira. But that is two years from now so anything can happen.

Been to Italy quite few times but sorry to say the bulk of my photos are tourist shots. The shot I have posted is when I anchored in a bay for the night at the Isla De Vulcano in the Aeolian Islands as I was making my way to Sardinia.

Cheers

Nice, though I would crop the stuff stuff on the right, it distracts the eye. Then it would be a really good shot.

I still do film. Zenza Bronica SQA medium format a couple of weeks ago.

The tractor is a Lamborghini. This shot reminded me of YouTube videos of people starting the motors of vehicles that have been sitting in the woods for 70 years.

Great pics, Simon! Of course, there are a lot of good subjects for a photographer living in Italy.

Been busy settling in but now I am stacked up with a load of photo safaris.

RE: Back into my photography (in reply to Escribano

Looks like spring has started Simon. Is that a clearance cairn in the foreground or a field boundary? It doesn't look prehistoric.

In an earlier post you said you had some "safaris" lined up. Are they self led or more formal?

Keep them coming please.

Cheers

Probably clearance as it was inside the boundary fence but boundaries are circumspect here.

All safaris will be self-led. Hoping to pop down to Pisa this weekend.

That is what I thought.

Hopefully you can capture Pisano's pulpit in the Baptistry better than I ever was able to manage. Don't know if you have been but Lucca is an interesting town and I think the first Triumvirate was signed there if memory serves. It is remarkable the amount of significant historical sites located throughout Italy as well as the prehistorical ones too.

Cheers

Vary nice!

Of course the guitar builder in me says, hmmm bet there is a rib and back set in there somewhere? Poplar?

Not sure. There is a lot of poplar around here, so maybe. I'll see if I can identify it with an app.

It was split by a big storm last year.

I am learning a lot more about digital editing and workflow, so I am revisiting some of my shots from last year which I kind of dismissed as snaps but were still taken with a decent camera.

From the Rose Garden in Florence.

I've been reading, learning and practising. Went further south in Tuscany this last weekend and caught this one at dawn.

Gorgeous, Simon. It looks like one of those famous paintings of the Tuscan landscape. If it were framed it would fit right in in a gallery.

I had the same reaction as Bill. It is hard to believe it is a photo - in the best possible sense. Amazing.

Thanks for your comments, it means a lot. I also tried some architecture. This is in Livorno, by the sea.
