Day to night walk in London street photography Fujifilm low light sunset
14th December 2021

Welcome back to another cinematic vlog in the streets, this time for a day to night walk in London. Aside of going out for photography, to me walking is kind of a therapeutical exercise: whenever I feel down or lacking inspiration I just hit the streets. It clears my mind. And if I'm looking for inspiration this clicks briefly after I start taking photos...

Snow in London photowalk
3rd February 2021

First (and so far only) day of snow of 2021 so of course I had to go out for a Snow In London photowalk! I love the snow, maybe because it is always been so rare in every city I have lived in. In Florence for example, people still talk...

London lockdown, again… England is entering its second national lockdown phase today as Coronavirus/Covid-19 cases have risen sharply.

Yesterday I went out with my friend Martyn for a photographic morning with Richmond Park deers. This park just outside of London is famous for its deers but it also has a nice view over the city (albeit from far away) that is perfect for sunrise in some periods. It’s...

Rain Photography in London
15th October 2020

Time for some rain photography! Street photography to be exact. Most foreigners think it always rains in London but in reality it’s mostly cloudy or just drizzling (and we do have sunny days, harsh ones too). Now, coming from Italy, I don’t really fancy going out when it’s grey, let...

Luminosity Masks in Photoshop

I wrote about Luminosity Masks in Photoshop already on this blog. It’s a very powerful technique that I use a lot in my landscape and cityscape photography. I find it a lot more efficacious than letting my camera or a software decide what a good HDR photo is automatically. Yes,...

Comet Neowise over London

A once in a lifetime opportunity, that’s what photographing Comet Neowise over London (or anywhere else, really) is! I’m not going to dive in too many descriptions of the event. I’m sure you all know about it by now and I’m not an astronomy guru.What makes this a once in...

Photography in Harsh Light
2nd July 2020

In this week’s YouTube video, I take it to the streets of London for some street photography in harsh light. Oftentimes you hear photographers say that the best time for photography is during the so-called Golden Hour (right after sunrise and before sunset) or Blue Hour (the dim light before...
