The 100th edition of Pitti Uomo in Florence
This year at the end of June was held the hundredth edition of Pitti Immagine man in Florence.
Definitely, the number is one of the important ones but even more, the importance was given by the return of an edition of the fair in the presence, after blocking trade shows for over a year and a half due to the Covid-19.
Obviously, the edition saw a decline in the number of presences both for the buyers and the stands, but I would say that it was a great signal to restart the trade fair sector in presence.
It was so nice to see again so many family faces, friends and people I photographed during the various years at Pitti Immagine Uomo. I also made some new interesting meetings and took new photographic sessions for Nick Wooster, Hockerty and Simone Gismondi for Players Magazine.
I suggest you to give a look at the “Portraits” category: you can find other inspirational photosession shot in Italy and aboard with useful backstages, tips and suggestions!
About the photo session: technical notes
Technically from the photographic point of view, I used the new camera bodies that I took in late May, the Fujifilm X-Pro 3 and the Fujifilm X-T4. Obviously, I immediately found myself having had previously the X-Pro 2 and the X-T3 (which I still keep as a second body for photos and backstage videos).
I added to the group of lenses in my possession the Fujinon 23mm f/1.4: this was one of the lenses I was left to buy for some time (it is equivalent to 35mm in the full-frame format) and considering how much I used the x100t in the previous photographic works for this particular focal length, I decided to add this lens to the X-Pro 3 to which I think it goes very well!
In one of the next posts, I’ll talk about the “no” editing workflow that I did on these photos to give this “analog flavor” to final shots.
