Portrait photography

By 6 July 2015November 27th, 2022Rome, Solo, Trastevere

Rome Italy

 We began this portrait session by meeting at the tram stop in Piazza Belli in the heart of the Trastevere quarter. We then started walking around the area looking to shoot natural portraits in a traditional roman setting.  What better better place than Trastevere! With so many cool backgrounds to choose from: cafes, colored doors, unique architecture, cobbled stone streets, bridges.
After taking some initial pictures to get warmed up we started the photo session in Piazza Santa Maria in Trastevere. By the water  fountain in front of the Basilica. From there on it was an adventure of street corners and alleyways looking for nice places to shoot. Ending up in Piazza Trilussa where we crossed Ponte Sisto bridge to reach Largo dei Librari and shoot at the entrance of Church Santa Barbara dei Librai. Then heading into Piazza Campo dei Fiori where the fruit and vegetable market was just finishing up. Then heading back to Piazza Trilussa by swinging around Piazza Farnese. We concluded the photo shoot down by the Tiber river looking on to the side of Ponte Sisto.
