My friends at FotoTecnica contacted me, and asked if I could prepare something for their booth at Sonimagfoto. Since they were planning to share a portion of it with GoPro, I suggested two things that I could do for them.

One was simple: a silent version (no audio on booths) of a previous movie I made, recorded with a GoPro Hero-3 Black placed on a shelve of One-Michelin-Star restaurant Koy Shunka, that I happened to design four years ago, and make a fast/slow-action film of the chefs working on their dishes (the open kitchen happens to be quite spectacular, and by the way, food is absolutely amazing!). See here my original movie here and the silent version here.

Second was more of a niche project: what capabilities of the GoPros do we hardly think of? Photos. We do take photos when we make time-lapses, but I cannot remember seeing any "self-standing" photo session taken with a GoPro. So I went out to walk around the typical tourist tour around the old part of town, and snapped pictures like crazy. But with a twist: the pictures would be Black&White! I must admit I sneaked in a few pics that I snapped in Milan (I was there for Salone del Mobile), but for the sake of marketing, I decided not to change the title of the project. Please find the pictures below.
