    • Thank you. Try some different settings on your camera to get better color, or shoot raw if possible.

  7. Amazing shots with so much to look at…the ‘quick draw’ caption was perfect. The detail in the fishermen mending nets fascinated me – how did you get so much depth?

    • I shot the fishermen with a 20mm f/2.8, a 20 year old lens on a full frame sensor. Depth of field is very good that way. But the truth is, I love photography.

  8. As much I love color photos…black and white is by far my favorite! B&W cuts right to the chase and lets the emotion of a captured moment hit you square in the heart/mind!

    • Theanne, I do both. It just depends on what I am trying to present. A lot of photographers seem to be stuck in one mode or the other.

      • I don’t take B&W photos, I’d love to do B&W film and develop it myself but I cheat and edit some of mine to B&W because of the emotion I feel in the photo which is diffused when it’s in color. I had quite a “chat” some time ago about color vs b&w with a professional photographer from Italy…his theory was once he had a camera that took color photos he never wanted to go back to B&W…I disagreed.

        • Digital is inherently a color capture device. B&W digital images are created by mapping the colors to black and white tones.

        • definitely loses something when not developed from film

  11. Monochrome…my favorite…10 great photos…hard pressed to pick a favorite…<3 them all :) However, Clouds Over Sorrento says it wants to hang on my wall :)

  12. I am curious do you ask permission before or after you photograph people? You have wonderful candid photos or “real” people which I love. I just wonder sometimes when it is appropriate or not to post them on a blog. What are your thoughts?

    • Some before, some not at all. I believe it is appropriate to publish photographs of people in public places, although it is restricted in a few countries.
