Renato’s another Venetian local; kind enough to break his Saturday walk to chat for a couple of moments and take a portrait together.
He was a superbly no nonsense chap, with intense, polished style – as hopefully illustrated in the shot.
Renato – Thanks for taking part in the project. Your style is immense.
We only had time for three frames, and I was thinking chiefly about getting the flash settings right (even eTTL it’s a new ball to juggle), so I wasn’t at all sure with the composition of this. It felt at first like the wall was running the wrong way, but it’s really grown on me. I think the hat line and collar somehow threads it together with the soft diagonals. It’d be interesting to know what people think.
This is portrait #15 of my 100 Strangers Project – check out the group page and get involved. I can’t recommend it enough.
Hope everyone is having an incredible week.
