a very nice capture.
i like the interaction between the
man and the light path.
this looks like film.
if so, what film was used here?
Fuji Reala - 100ASA color film.
It was funny: when the photo loaded, it loaded slowly. So I first only saw the top bit and thought by myself "A Tuna-photo ... being so GREY only? There must be a bright bottom, else I don't believe it is a 'genuine Tuna'."
There it developed on my screen. The ray of light outlining this one person. Bingo!
Another "genuine Tuna" ... and taken in LUCCA, of all places. How I envy you for the chance to have BEEN there!!!
I have been loading color film lately which has allowed me to concentrate more on learning to see, capture and finish in color - I have found the colors and dynamic range of Reala to be pretty good. When needed, I can also see and shoot in B&W knowing that the conversion works well with this film. I also shoot slide film occasionally but the colors aren't as subtle and B&W conversions are very harsh.
Corinna, you are but a hop-skip away, you should take the opportunity to go if it comes up. I have a photographer friend who lives there and he laments the slowly rising influx of tourists in his city but it is still relatively free of the crowds of tourists I encountered throughout the rest of Italy. A beautiful town full of street-shot opportunities for you and your Leica...
I like streets like that.
They have a soul!
Where is Lucca situated?
In Tuscany, in Italy, Oleg.
And the "hop-skip" from here to Lucca is a 18-hour drive ...
