The Colors of Roma

Roma is of one of those cities that screams color, as much as Paris screams B&W in my opinion. No worries, the next post will be Rome in B&W but there will be fewer images.

I just returned from teaching a week long workshop in Italy about the Art of Seeing Photographically, with a big emphasis on Street Photography of course. The workshop was a big success and I am planning to run it again in the Fall of 2016.

I’ve never been one to feel stuck in either color or B&W. Some subjects are all about color and removing it would not make any sense. I rarely hesitate between color or B&W. I either see the shot in color or in B&W. I’ve always believed that those decisions should be made before you press the shutter, even if the digital age gives us options we didn’t have in the film days.

The light and the colors of Roma are so warm. There were only rare occasions where I saw the story in B&W, and you will discover those in the next blog post. Until then, please enjoy ‘Roma in colore’!

  2. These absolutely had to be in color! I’ve been to Rome many times and I was never so lucky as to see a red AND a blue Cinquecento in the same trip. Great work, especially the “mammole” eh eh eh.
