Still in the dark about everything that is the world of photography at the age of about 16 years I started taking pictures just for fun with my first photo gadget, the Nokia 6600 first phone ever to offer the possibility to record short video , from then on I felt that there was something that attracted me to capture images and moments of my life, even though at the time all this had almost nothing to do with photography. In fact, a few years later, with the occasion of my graduation in 2006 I choose as a gift the first real camera, a prosumer compact, the Olympus SP-320 with whom I have a good approach to the "real" photography with a decent quality, but above all with PASM style reflex by which I can learn to control the car, of course another story than my dear old Nokia. From then on I discovered the pleasure of capturing images of various types, from photography to travel to family photos and things that surround me, but I used the camera still only occasionally and mostly in Scene mode for simplicity. The turning point was in 2012 when I was about to graduate in Civil Engineering, thinking about a possible gift (worthy of a degree) I come across in the world of mirrorless, and just happens to Nikon, the Nikon 1 J2 with which it was love at first sight. Strangely, I did not choose an SLR though the fashion advised this solution, but I tend to not follow trends, I felt more attracted by the opportunity to take everywhere with me a quality machine definitely superior to my first compact without sacrificing comfort and portability note. The first successes were not slow in coming, with some photos that receive even a moderate success both on this and on other clubs, from here on, I could no longer do without photographing, buying my first lenses, a tele and then a fixed 10 mm F / 2.8 Nikon 1 that makes my perfect partner in life (as I like to call it) small and discreet but with due quality of the image, so you always (or almost!) the machine within reach hand, because the opportunities arise when you least expect it. After a year that the last upgrade in 2013 happens to me a great opportunity a "reflex" Sony SLT a37 as a new one month old at half price, I take this opportunity and start a new era, though in reality not too different from my mirrorless as an approach to photography (as in how to live view autofocus and behave very similarly), a short time after purchasing a telephoto 300 mm with whom I experience the photo hunt with it I had a chance to reconcile two great passions, and Nature Photography. Finally I bought a fixed lens portrait a 50 mm f / 1.8 which allowed me to make a significant leap in image quality.
Photography is a passion, feeling and freedom ... I try to express myself, what I feel, what I SEE, through photography. Now do not think I be able to do without it, it is as if I had entered inside.
