The modern man

A little project about… the modern man.

With one of my favourite models (Mauro) we had to make this series of pictures.

It all started one day in Venice, near St. Mark’s square, when we decided to buy this ridiculous apron.
I shot the first photo there, and it was amazing. It was also performed in an exhibition in London, last November.
You can read about it here:

First pic: Hasselblad & Distagon 50mm & Kodak Portra 160
Others: Canon 5DII + 24/35/50 mm

2012 to the end

A set of photos from this first year. The blog is born on september 13, three months ago.

A 2012 full of fun and satisfaction. I look back on this year, a good work was done and I’m really satisfied with it.
I feel that there are still many things to learn, I still have much to study and grow.
Hoping next year will be even better, I wish you all the best.

A special thanks to all the people I have photographed this year,

especially the couples who have loved me as their wedding photographer,

my friends,

my kids

and – of course – my lovely wife.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2013!

See you on 2013

film [a birthday party]

First roll with my last purchase: a Canon Eos3.

Some pics of my son’s birthday party.

This was a test, so I used a very cheap roll (Kodak Color Plus 200). But the magic is the amazing lens 24mm f/1.4, that makes everything beautiful, especially on film. The camera is 35mm format and is very interesting. First of all you can use all the EF lenses, that you use on digital EOSs. Then it’s a very advanced body, full of functions and useful tools.

Just for fun, enjoy my test shots.
