Another selection of street images taken with my Olympus OM-D EM-5, taken on the streets of Venezia and Firenze.
17mm, ISO 400, f1.8, 1/4000th sec. Taken out of the window of the train from Mestre to Venezia, this one is all about the lines on show, from the wires and brickwork to the poles and rails.
25mm, ISO 200, f8, 1/30th sec. This shot taken in Firenze has already featured on the blog, this guy casually waiting for customers.
25mm, ISO 800, f1.4, 1/800th sec. Taken in Firenze’s Mercato Centrale (hence the t shirt), I liked the shadow in comparison with the bright lights of the counter showing off this guys wares.
25mm, ISO 200, f4, 1/4000th sec. The contrast between the shadow and light is what I was aiming for here, with the line of shadow leading across the mage to this guy in the foreground on his phone.
17mm, ISO 400, f4, 1/4000th sec. This is the interior of the Palazzo Ducale in Venezia, two things were the idea here, the comparison of the size of the building to the people below and the contrast of light in the courtyard and the shadow of foreground, nicely silhouetting the people too.
25mm, ISO 200, f1.4, 1/60th sec. I love this mage, much like many of the ones I took that evening in the Piazzale Michelangelo. The picture within a picture of the boys phone as he takes a snapshot of the illuminated city below, the lights leading away down the river into the distance and of course the fact everyone is looking at the same thing, just like we are.
