portraits of a girl

My little sister-in-law. My wife’s sister. Her name is Elisabetta, and she is twelwe.

I experiment with her, trying to define my portraiture style. Since 2009 I have been shooting many portraits of her, always experimenting more and more. Below some examples.

What is interesting in her face? Why is a good model for me? Well, it is certainly a number of things: freckles, eyes, mouth, hair, ears, etc… But first of all it’s her personality. She has a strong personality and this is the most important thing in model selection. For me, of course. I consider a beautiful subject a model with an interesting personality. Not for his/her body.

I’m always looking for new models.

If you like my style, if you are interested in my kind of portraiture, if you want to be a model, if you want to be photographed by me… don’t hesitate to contact me!

Andrea - AMAZING Pictures!!!

My holidays {Preview}

Me and my family spent two weeks in Provence (France), enjoying some beautiful pools. And plenty of relaxation…

These pics are made using an analogic disposable waterproof camera.

It’s a very cheap camera finded in a supermarket. 800 ISO. I think it could be a 35mm f/8 or something similar, but I can’t be sure about it. I don’t know. Anyway, a very lo-fi result! And I like the spontaneity and imperfection of film, in this case. You get the right touch of drama and fun. Mixed at best.

This is only a preview. Stay tuned. Full series will arrive soon.

All pics are SOOC, of course. Lo-fi is lo-fi. You cannot make it worse!

buttha - oh, questa sì che è una sorpresa!

paolo mezzera - Contento che ti piaccia 🙂
Scanner a parte (che mi fa sempre impazzire), sono abbastanza soddisfatto. Il tono delle foto é comunque molto semplice e senza alcuna pretesa. Ma divertenti. Da fare e da vedere.

iko - la mano del fotografo fa la differenza!
