Il Servizio Fotografico

Venice, Italy

I prefer candid photos to posed photos. I guess this is a mix of both since she was posing for him and neither one of them noticed me.

The Weekend in Black and White

  10. Nice shot James. I wonder if you have made it a little softer in post-proccesing. There is a glow i cannot understand otherwise.

  17. Absolutely beautiful photo, James. I love the reflection in the canal, and the fact that you got a candid photo of someone posing. Do you call that good luck or good management? LOL

  20. When people pose for other photographers they often present an opportunity for a candid shot. Nicely done.

  21. Encadrés par des façades austères ce canal et ce pont dans Venise donnent un sentiment de liberté, d'évasion. Même si elle posait pour lui, un sourire de la femme aurait agrémenté le cliché, mais pour une photo "volée" elle est magnifique (la photo !)

  22. This is excellent! Every thing I love about black and white photography. Those two are beautifully set off by the patterns of the architecture and the water.

  23. Nice capture! I love the contrast of the crisp details and the shimmer of the water.

  25. I agree with you and this is an awesome one. It's kind of a reverse photo bomb.
