facing the sea, but…

Another image of the smooth and desaturated palette series. Rio de Janeiro is a very curious city, looking at the sea, especially on a day like today, rainy and without anyone on the beach, it is possible to convey the idea that this is a beautiful and peaceful city. As everybody knows that is not true, unfortunately. There is a song here whose translation says: 

it is very easy to talk about such beautiful things, facing the sea but with your back to the favela.

aesthetic research

A few weeks ago I posted an image where I mentioned my visual research about a certain mood (soft, usaturated)  of color palette when taking landscape/seascape photographs. In this sense, yesterday, I could find a time, and a suitable climate to follow up in my aesthetic research. I am creating a series of images of this style in order to print it on fine art paper (canson or hannemuller) as object of decoration.

In order to give a dramatic picture, sometimes it is easier to highlight the sky; specially on a day with clouds like this, when photos take on this most dramatic aspect. Perhaps I have given too much importance to the sky in this case, for it fills two-thirds of the picture, but what was below the hills did not interest me either. Sometimes it’s hard to find the perfect frame.
