The Shot Of My Year

Credits: superlighter

Funhouse Conversation is the title I have given this photo taken right at the beginning of 2011, January 8.
As many of you will have noticed, the Funhouse is the place where I spent most of the time on last year weekends based on nice and funny people, drinks, great live music, and burlesque!
But above all, Funhouse is a natural set where with a successful play of lights, shapes and colors (mostly red, white and black) has inspired me like never before!
About this shot I want to report one of the comments left by @vicuna “Looks like the world around these 2 has stand still and that nothing matters more than listening and looking to each other…” Hard to find a better description!
Technically, I used a Revue 35 cc with one of my favorite films: the Ferrania Solaris 200 and the camera set to ISO 400.
This setting has contributed to freeze the scene while maintaining the strong contrast between light areas and those in the shade, as in reality.
The atmosphere is cinematographic, makes me think of David Lynch or as @uphilldawta says in another comment “straight from a movie of Jeunet”.
What else? This photo has quickly become one of my most popular and this can only make me super happy!
Advice, if you are traveling by my side be sure to head to the Funhouse. See you there!
and Happy 2012!
