Photographer's Note

This is a country fair band playing in the town of Bazzano, near Bologna.
I decided to post this picture as recently I am experimenting (and having fun with) the use of wide angle lens in photos of daily life scenes and of people. I think it is a fantastic lens to get into the scene, and really convey the atmosphere of what was going on.
I have learned this technique (or at least I am trying to learn) watching the images of photographers who work for National Geographic, as well as the images of the World Press Awards winners. Contrary to what one might think, most of the reportage images, most of the scenes involving people and their activities are taken with wide angles, sometimes extreme wide angles.
I am experimenting new povs, and I think the image taken from below is one of the most effective to
really blast into the scene.
Most of the images that I make are good for the thrash bin only, but occasionaly something decent comes out.
