Alley in Rome
This shot was taken with my old Nikon D40 when I was 11 years old visiting Rome, Italy. One morning as I was walking down the tiny staircase in my hotel (try not tripping on one of those old tiny european staircases), I looked out one of the windows and saw a true glimpse of what daily life was like in Rome on this Bustling Street. I believe that it was this moment when I actually was first introduced to street photography. Years later in my post-processing in Lightroom, I warmed up the scene with temperature adjustments, played around with the light and then brought it over to DXO Labs and applied a vintage film camera preset. This created a 1960s ambiance that made the colors pop, added film grain, and overall really defined the moment I experienced when looking out the window.
