We are pleased to welcome Orietta, aka @oriettags from Madrid | SPAIN in our Mobile Photography Gallery.

Even if she lives in Madrid, Orietta is half american and half italian. She mainly shoots black and white street candids.

Today, Orietta tells us about this incredible picture as well as about both her technique and influences in the field of photography.

“I have always been influenced and very interested in the Bauhaus both in graphic design and in photography.”

 

MY PICTURE

“I took this photo at Fiumicino Airport (Rome) while waiting for my airplane to be called. I saw this quite big advertising light box for Chanel Nº5. As a graphic designer I was attracted by the simple bold black typography on one of it’s white plain sides. I was very lucky because a man with a cap and a cane stopped right in front of it. I took a couple of shots and decided that the one without the 5 would be less predictable and therefore maybe more interesting as a whole.”

 

MY TECHNICAL STUFF

“I shot this with an iPhone 4 using ProCamera. Then processed it with Snapseed to add some contrast and crop a touch of the man’s legs and a bit of the right side, in order that the silhouette would fill the whole of that angle. I wanted to divide the image into two clearly differentiated fields. ”
