Italy Mediterranean 01 Vernazza 6657_6683 Web.jpg
Italy, Mediterranean Sea. Framing.
Left photo. The blue sky above Vernassi is just enough to act as an overhead frame. Along the bottom, diagonal lines lead the viewer into the image.
Right photo. Before pointing the camera, I adjust my camera's focal length, ISO and exposure to get at least 1/100 second shutter speed. I'm not totally comfortable intruding on someone's morning smoke, so I work fast and hope for the best.
