On the Doors - Black and White Photos - Italy - Original Photography - Part 1

in photography •  2 years ago

I took these photos in an old abandoned monastery that was founded in 1263 by Hugh of Fagiano, better known as "Convento di Sant'Agostino Nicosia" in the small town of Calci - Pisa (Italy). If you want to know more about Nicosia, just access this link. (Only in Italian, sorry).

Wow man! These photos are so powerful. I wish I could do what you do:) Your use of light and shadow to tells a story in each shot.


Thank you man! In each of the photo I used only brightness, contrast and shadow, nothing more. Sometimes I use more contrast and less brigtheness, and then I adjust with the shadow (basic), other times more brightness and less contrast when I'm editing. I do not have a fixed rule, it depends a lot on the light of the place, because i don't use artificial light. In my opinion, the most important thing is the moment when I'm taking the photos, because that's where I control the input and output light on my camera, so much so that I shot several times before arriving at the final result.

Well it is masterful however you do it. The fact that you use actual light makes it even more impressive!


Thanks another time. I think that the process to take the photos must coming naturaly. I never think how to do the pics and the what the next place that i'll go to protography. I only take my camera and let's go! (;
