Diary of an Italian Photographer

Less than one year ago, I introduced myself in the wondering world of photography buying my first digital reflex camera. Before this moment, I took shots with digital cameras (‘compact cameras’) using them with automatic settings. These cameras are very small and their portability is good for a lot of situations (vacations, birthday, etc.) but it’s difficult to take night shots, speedy events and so on. With my reflex, now, I can take shots of a lot of kinds I never thought before.Practice and technical documents are basilar in everything and photography isn’t an exception. Try, try and try again to find what you want, not what is beautiful. This is just my opinion but is my choice in photography.

Some days ago, I bought a webspace and I built and published my personal website dedicated to the digital photography. You can find classical shots but there a lot of uncommon photos. It’s a kind of diary where I can share with all you my preferred shots, not the best because everyone has a different opinion about the same photo. Every photo has an own history.

I relax myself when I put the camera in the bag, drive my car and stop it wherever my mind feel an emotion. Turn on the camera and i find to take the best emotional shots.

Many times, my friends told me their opinions about some photos that they like for the colors, the subject but are estetic sensations…mine are deep emotions because I lived the moment, I choose the moment, I materialized an emotion…great!

I imagine that visitors of my site can’t ‘live’ my diary at the same mode of mine, but I hope that I can give you some frames of my emotions.
