Here in Tuscany

In this post, I'm going to share one of the most interesting sessions I had at the last Pitti Immagine Uomo. I had the idea that was nice to go to shoot outside the usual, and much photographed, place of the Fortezza da Basso. So we set a session in the streets of Florence, and honestly to say, we were more staying close to Piazza Della Repubblica....

The second part of the story, the photo session taken for the bran Gra'it by Bonollo in Florence. The photo session has been very interesting since the begin of the morning we've spent like a street photo session in around the corners of Florence with a beautiful morning light that was giving the right mood to the pictures.

A day with Alena and Olya in Calafuria, Tuscany, shooting some lifestyle photos. We had a very wonderful day thanks to a beautiful sun and a very calm day at the coast. It's amazing to think how different this places look in the winter period compared to the overcrowded summer time!

With the presentation of the brand new Google Pixel phone, some of you may think that the previous smartphone model, the Nexus 6p, is outdate. Well, that's absolutly not true. Excpecially now that prices for this device are quite lower than last year, you can buy this device for example at for about 400€ (the 64 gbyte version!). So how this device performs on the camera side? Let's see in this Nexus 6p photo review! [I want to thanks for the collaboration, giving this device for the test] Construction quality, Nexus 6p photo review The device follows the trend of the actual smartphone with an unibody...

Here's my Huawei P9 photo test and review, a smartphone that create much interest in the photography market thanks to the collaboration with a historical brand as Leica. Huawei with P9 has focused on the photographic industry, a field that now seems to move of choice for users interests: photography with smartphones is gaining for years in interest for the users, replacing the segment of compact camera and is going to affect also the sales of  SLR and mirrorless camera: offcourse in many respects the latter will be impossible to challenge (especially for the size of the sensor and optics that allow...

These photos published in this article unfortunately arrive with the sad news of the accident yesterday occurred right in the same place I visited just over a week ago in Massa Carrara’s marbe quarries. In the accident that happened, a wall of marble came off sweeping two workers. At the moment the workers are still missing under the rubble. We pray in god that some good news could arrive… [Update on 15/4/16: unlucky the sad news that we didn't want to hear has arrived. The fireman found the bodies lifeless under the stones]

Who does not love summer? Perhaps is the most beautiful period of the year, when you can spend more time outdoors and organise parties with friends. The photos you see below I made during a day with friends in the middle of the beautiful Chianti Classico in Tuscany. I took all the picturesin natural light with the inseparable Canon 50mm f/1.4 and the 5D MkII. The color toning was given in postproduction with Lightroom with the color profiles of VSCOcam.
When Marian contacted me to take pictures in Florence during her recent visit to Italy, on the day chosen for the photo session the weather showed unequivocally the possibility of rain. Heavy rain. Despite all, Marian was enthusiastic about the idea of taking the photos with the rain and the reflections of the city lights on the wet floors. We can look at the positive side of the story: the classical and crowded Florence in a usual afternoon was in this situation almost deserted; we had the chance to shoot without too many tourists around even if our journey was on the classical Florence's places (Piazza Signoria, Uffizi, Via de Calzaiuoli). From the technical side,
I think it's really amazing what a modern smartphone can do in terms of image quality! I was an happy owner of the Samsung S5 and I consider it a great smartphone, indeed maybe one of the best to take photos when we are in the presence of a good amount of light. One of its weaknesses, however, were the performance in low-light situation. With Note 4, Samsung has greatly improved the situation because it has adopted a optical image stabilizer that helps keep the shutter speeds low: in this way it avoids to

A photo session with Azzurra in the Chianti area in Tuscany. This was also an occasion to test the Canon 6d with the smallest lens available to the EF - mount: the 40mm pancake from Canon! It's a very amazing lens considering how small and qualitative is this lens, and the very low price (around 150€) . I really suggest this optics to all the Canon photographers that want to have a small, flexible but qualitative lens always with them!

Foggy days in Florence. Cold days where everything around get light and soft. The street lights become like white spots that emerge from the black of night. In the fog, even the crowded day city becomes calm, sleepy. Hidden.

A day spent in Lucca for the new edition of Lux Photo Festival. Below are some pictures taken in the beautiful Tuscan town. Lucca is a really lovely place, thanks to its medieval structure surrounded with the walls. In Lucca you are able to walk safely in the streets without the noise of cars around. A short report on Lux Photo Festival in Lucca will soon to come! ...

During the UCI World Championships 2013 in Tuscany, I documented the event for the Assicurazioni Generali group. The photographs proposed here are some of the images linked to the activity of Assicurazioni Generali Group held during the week of the event and some pictures during competitive races. Assicurazioni Generali Group has been one of the major sponsors of the event: the photographic work was done concentrated on documenting the presence of the Brand Assicurazioni Generali in the structures created ad hoc (mini air balloons, inflatables, banners) placed along the race course, the stands and the activities that took place within, the events...
