Image of a man wearing a medieval costume with a stick in an agressive position during the Carnival of Venice nights.
This is a very special capture. This character walks through the crowd in the dark evening. I intended to shoot him and I took the position with my camera to my eye. It all seemed to be an environmental profile shoot. But he realized that I wanted to shoot him and suddenly turned to me with his stick pointing at me. He stayed in this position for just a few seconds and then suddenly disappeared in the crowd. So I had just 2-3 seconds to calm down due to his quick movement and to shoot him and capture this wonderful environmental portrait which can be a poster for a medieval historical movie. Considering the poor lighting conditions I am very proud of the results…. And of course I thank him for his unexpected and fast initiative.
