Another image from my Personal Project “Clownville”.
Always dreamed to do an Adolf Hitler portrait. To give my personal view about this little man that killed millions.
My grandfather was a french socialist and was captured by Nazis as a political prisoner. He has been working in several concentration camps before being sent to Auschwitz for his final days.
But he was lucky and survived until the Russians arrived in 1945.
His way back from Poland to home in France took 2 years. He never wanted to talk about those years with anybody.
Thanks to Chicco for letting me transform him in Adolf and to Valeria Orlando for the beautiful makeup.
Special gratitude also to Luca and Tony for supporting me.
I read several posts on the internet about those presets. So i decided to try them by myself. I purchased the LightRoom 4.0 version.
As you can see from this Canon 5D MKII image i took in the Korogocho Bidonville just outside of Nairobi in Kenya. I tried several presets but for this particular image i used the Kodak Portra 400.
I was really pleased by the result i got. I processed few more images with this preset and loaded them in the Street Photography gallery of my website.

The two images selected during the Workshop on the Road event.
The images were shot with the Hasselblad H4D-31 while the light was provided by the Profoto with their awesome ProDaylight system.
The photographer Corrado Murlo was our model, while makeup was performed by Valeria Orlando.
I’d love to thanks also our Project Manager Antonella Catanese and our super assistant Luca Gottardi that helped me so much.
Many thanks also to Andrea Mariani, Mauro Bertola, Roberto Marini, Gianluca Destro, Gianluca Parodi e Stefano Natrella.
A special thanks to ErrecciStudios for hosting the event.
