We are delighted to feature greyscale at its best. No element is quite black, nor quite white. Perfect. The shot features Lara Foschi and Alessandro Cipolla and was taken in the early hours (Tango Time) of one very warm evening during the Catania Summer Tango Week 2019.
Did we ever mention? Grey is glorious. Grey is beautiful. Grey is good. We love the soft, grainy shades that blend to form the scene we know so well. The contrast throughout the pretty paisley shirt is distinctive, so that the simple background features bring out the shirt’s design guiding the onlooker towards closed eyes and a warm, thoughtful embrace.
We asked Cetti why she chose this image:
There is some feeling. I felt it. The couple in the foreground are like one person, one thought, but also the other couple are in perfect harmony. It was an intense moment.
Nikon D3200. Lens 35mm 1.8. Default lights. No flash or additional light. Black and white in post-production.
