As the most of us - I think - I started taking pictures since I was a child in order to fix the moment in my memory, just to have something that help to remember and to share, just to say "hey, there was me with my sister, mum and dad!" or just to smile in seeing something funny just happened.
Full auto cameras or an old camera of my father: "f/8, 1/125 and Asa 50 and you go" That's all.
In 2004 I bought a point and shoot digital camera. It was very compact and I start bringing it with me everywhere. The scope was the same. Keep memories safe!
Anyway, something was changing in my mind. The possibility to review your shoot immediately, the possibility to do it wrong, to try and to try again drain me to think about something different. I got no idea of what the photographic technique was, and with a point and shoot all that I had to do was... just shoot...just try and then try again just to see the results.
As easy to understand, in a trillion photos, one or two good pictures happened to be caught and those two made me grown the curiosity in understanding why those two were good - of course for me - and the other trillion was not.
I think that's all. I start studying the technique, I start watching other's photos, I start going to exhibitions, I start following photographic community... I bought a bridge, then a reflex, than another one... then here I'm.
