Photography for me is a way to create images, so I usually process(that's adjustments) the photo after taking them, in order to present them in the way I wanted to.
Here are the 10 photos which I have made in 2012 and selected as more significant ones.
This photo was made while having aperitive with friends at piazza Vittorio. It was made against the bright sunlight, so obviously the foreground was pretty dark, I processed it rather extremely and turned out to be something pretty different. I like the effect of the photo which made it looks like a combined image.
This photo was made while crossing the road, didn't expect anything special out of it, but was surprised by beauty of its colors, especially on the surface of the road. It presents a sight of this part of the town which I normally failed to notice.
This was made during my night walk around the vicinity. Was attracted by the light projected from the restaurant on the side into the narrow street. Asked a friend to stand right in front of the camera and created this image with light and shadows into sort of a mysterious lane.
This was taken during a wedding dinner of a friend, it was by the river Po and right in front of Murazzi. Was lucky to capture the moment while the sky was not yet dark and the lights of the pubs along Murazzi have began to light up. This photo is more significant now that the pubs were forced to close down now and not sure if they will be re-open again.
Full summer 2012, windy, the clouds were moving, the light was bright. A little processing was done to even out the shadows and the light. Like the interesting sky which enhanced the beauty of piazza Castello. It was a beautiful day and I was in a beautiful mood.
This was taken in spring when a sudden downpour began. Taking shelter under the arch in piazza Castello, actually wanted to snap photo of people running from the rain, but was attracted by the reflection and the effect of the light caused by the heavy rain. Had to enhance the contrast to create this almost gothic style. Pretty satisfied with the post process effect.
This was taken during a long walk along the river Po just after snowing. Actually was pretty satisfied with the set of photo made during the walk, the snow had transformed the area completely and it was breathlessly beautiful. This photo was chosen mainly because of the framing of Superga and represents a memory of this particular walk.
It was difficult to set focus on these little creatures, they move fast! It was taken in the medieval village in Valentino park. I toned down the colors to make it look like Chinese painting, which the swallows are a common subject in Chinese's art.
