The open doors
24 August 2021

The open doors Ah the open doors! My cross and delight. I have been delighting with photography for years, I believe (without fear of pride) that I have also achieved a certain expressive capacity with the reflex camera, yet still I do not hide from you that I still have some difficulty in understanding how to shoot open doors. Have you ever asked yourself the problem? Open doors are strange objects to photograph, pay attention to them. For ...

3 easy tips for lighting in darkness scenario
11 August 2021

Before taling about the 3 easy tips for lighting in darkness scenario.... In other posts I happened to repeat a phrase to which I am very attached or that, in the end, photography is nothing more than a “lucky” combination of light, color, shapes and movements. In this post we will focus in particular on light and we will do so by analyzing the key elements that you must consider when taking photographs in the dark or in any case in low light ...

The problem of inspiration for a photographer
2 August 2021

The problem of inspiration The problem of inspiration is something that does not only concern those involved in photography but all creative arts such as music, literature, painting etc. Rivers of ink have been spent to describe all the psychological And in some cases even physical, facets that imply the creative effort, just as, in literature, it is possible to find dozens and dozens of books that would like to explain to us how to stimulat...

4 lifestyle habits to learn to photograph… in a year
30 July 2021

Before talking about the 4 lifestyle habits to learn to photograph...I'll explain how I came to write this post on "4 habits of life to learn to photograph". In some past posts, like this one, I took some time to give advice, and forgive me if "not requested", to those who are already a photographer and want to develop this ability towards more professional horizons, for work or simply for passion such as happens to me. At the same time, howeve...

The 5 most common mistakes in photography
29 July 2021

Why I decided to write a post on the 5 most common mistakes in photography. Since photography is taking up more and more space in my days, also due to this blog, I happen to spend hours on the internet looking at the shots that other photographers like me take in the rest of the world. I find it a useful exercise since no one can ever define himself as completely "arrived" in his field, and that there is always something to learn. From eve...

6 July 2021

My hands on the Fujifilm GFX 100S I want to change. I want to start my review of the Fujifilm GFX 100S starting not from the specs and performance as is normally done in photography blogs, but from the physical sensations I had while picking it up. They are positive sensations linked above all to well-studied ergonomics. Starting vibes A first feature that I liked to review is that of the adjustable and removable monitor that I hav...

Two parallel lines meet ... sooner or later
23 June 2021

The parallel lines meet according to Euclid? About 2500 years ago the good Euclid of Alexandria in Egypt told us that two parallel lines never meet. But is it really so? Attention, I do not want to clarify or refute mathematical theories here, this is not what interests me. What I like to analyze instead is how Euclid's fifth postulate often ends up by mapping itself in personal relationships. I'll explain. Do you know those relationsh...
