Brooklyn Bridge by Antonio Biagiotti

The skyline of New York needs no introduction and by visiting the big apple I couldn’t resist photographing one of its symbols. I wanted a scene with a strong contrast, I exposed for 30 seconds and I calculated to over-develop the film. The glittering skyscrapers and the reflection of the lights on the water show me that I saw right.

Photography is Antonio’s great passion. He mostly uses PENTAX K1000, which let him entered a wonderful world, made of shutter speed, framing and aperture. His photographs are mostly with the Large Format 4 × 5 or Medium Format 67, using only black and white film that he personally develops and prints in his darkroom.
