Milan by Night / Dec 2021
Another night photography session downtown Milan, right before all the Christmas light began to show up everywhere. Sure they’re nice, but they also are… seasonal. I love how the red light hues turned out. Also, as hard as it is to get a steady shot, even with optical image stabilization, I like how moving subjects […]
I shot these photographs on a November day in the same general area, but then the light changed… The result is that I can clearly split them into two separate groups. Maybe it’s just me, but I think they convey very different moods. The “blue” images tell me about a cold, somewhat mystical quiet, while […]
I find tramway tracks very fascinating, especially in the night. I know, it might sound weird to find tramway tracks fascinating, but with all those colorful reflections from traffic lights, cars, restaurants… they look very good in photographs, in my opinion. Lucky me, because Milan is full of tramways! I shot all these photos handheld, […]
Woodlands: what a source of inspiration! These photos are all from South Tyrol, Italy, and they show how many details and interesting angles you can find in a forest. Also, I noticed that I shot all these photographs in portrait orientation. Why? I think it better conveys the depth of these scenes.
OK, it’s not exactly a gigapixel, but it’s still a respectable 212 MP panorama. I shot 5 photographs using High Resolution mode on my Panasonic G9. This mode, which requires the use of a tripod, grabs eight 20 MP shots by moving the sensor by half a pixel each time, and then it combines the […]
I got these shots as we were getting back from the Riva Waterfalls (wonderful, by the way). Rain was approaching and the low clouds interacted with the tops of the mountains, creating these beautiful, moody images. These mountaintops were a few kilometers away from us, so I had my zoom lens all the way to […]
Woodlands are amazing, and undergrowth is just as beautiful. You can find moss, tiny plants, leaves… The colors are so good, especially in autumn, and when you add a shallow depth of field, the end result is a fantastic photograph. These shots are from the woods near the Riva Waterfalls in South Tyrol, Italy.
Rivers and Waterfalls
Moving water is one of the hardest subjects to shoot in the landscape category, and that’s because of shutter speed. On one hand, setting a faster shutter speed allows to “freeze” water, but the image looks somewhat artificial and harsh – at least to me. Setting a slower shutter speed, on the other hand, can […]
Braies Lake – Day 2
We were back early next morning, and by early I mean around 10. Luckily, the sun was barely peeking from the top of the mountains, so we didn’t miss anything. I wanted to see some fog on the lake, but it was absurdly cold (around 0°C / 32°F) so the air was crisp and clear. […]
Braies Lake – Day 1
We went to the Braies Lake in late October, when the larch trees were already charmingly yellow. It was a bit late when we got there at around 4 PM, and the sun was just about to set behind the tall mountains that embrace the lake, but the light was so soft and beautiful! We […]
