Added a bit of DOF with FocalPoint 2 from OnOne, because the Coolpix S3 doesn’t add much, with its small lens.

NB: I like that all the license plates in Bologna, Italy starts with My name “Bo”

I added a new concert galley called “Raven McCoy

My friend Rod asked me if I would help him make some photos of a friend and his band “Raven McCoy” playing live at Ungdomshuset here in Copenhagen, of course I said yes, a fun photo opportunity with a friend is always welcome.
It was quiet an experience, even though I’m a rock person, I must admit that it was hard for me to hear if they where singing in Danish or in English….or just screaming their lungs out, damn I sound just like my father now, am I really getting that old.

Well anyway click on the link above and see some young people with a lot of energy.

The photo above is from a trip to Bologna, Italy in 2007.
I don’t do black and white that offend – shamefully – but at the moment I’m in this black and white experimental mode, trying out different stuff, so hopefully you’ll see some more BW shoots here on the site in the future.

I was setting up for a shoot down this corridor, it is a covered sidewalk in Bologna, don’t know if you call that a corridor in English, well anyway, just as I was done setting up my tripod and so on, this man came walk from the other end of the sidewalk, and as I stood there waiting for him to pass, I noticed that he was checking the time, and in a split second I pushed the shutter release and ended up with this photo.

Converted to black and white and contrast adjusted in Photoshop, I also added a little grain to it.

The photo is from Bologna, Italy, I spent a few days there in January 2007, this is one is shoot an early morning, while I was waiting for the airport bus to arrive, there wasn’t that may people out on the streets at that time, so it was nice and quiet and as I always do to kill time……I made me some photos.

Noir

Noir
This evening shoot of one of the many pleasant streets of Bologna, is from a five-day trip to the city in January 2007 with my girlfriend and in-laws. We went down there to hear my girlfriend’s brother play on Netmage 07.
But instead of just being there one day, we decided to take a few more days in the city – one, however, was spent in Florence But more of that in another Post.Technically it’s not the best photo on the site, but I really like the film noir feel there is to it.
The photo was a little underexposed, which forced me to adjust the exposure up a lot in Photoshop. and the Nikon D70s isen’t the best camera when it comes to noise….., Well I ended up with a great deal of noise in the image, which I normally don’t like.
But in the case, it just addeds to Film Noir look.
I can easy imagine that it is Bogart and Bergman who are walking there.
