Cinemagraph photo session with Daniela. In this session we got some cinemagraph and some photograph aimed to publication.
For this session we want to get a colorful make up for beauty shot to show how the cinemagraph technique works here as well. Cinemagraph is a new technique that combines together video and photograhy: at the end a cinemagraph is a still photo this inside some movement. A cinemagraph start usually with a well recorded Video and then we work in post production to freeze or move the selected part we want.
Varenna is one of the villages facing the Como’s Lake. I think in this period this village become more interesting than in the summer when it’s populated by many tourists. On these cold winter months, you can enjoy a peace and tranquility that are essential ingredients in order to photograph at the best one place and not be disturbed by curious people around.
A beautiful holiday's break spend in Como. In a cold Italian winter day, there was some foggy clouds: everything became magic when we went on the top of Como's mountain and the clouds was just hiding the landscape creating a sort of mystical landscape. On the second day we spent our morning in the beautiful village of Bellagio.

Holland will always have a special place in my heart: there I did my university internship and there I still have lot of very good friends.  Thanks to my visit in Germany for the Photokina exhibition, I had the chance to spend some days in The Netherlands too. I was able to go back in Den Haag to visit the photographer and friend Gerrit Schreurs: his studio gives me always good emotions and I can smell the creative power of the crew working in. I had learned so much during the internship at Gerrit's place, so is always nice to meet him back and show my last works to hear his opinion.

Second part of the photo shoot that I’ve done during the Swedish Fashion Week in Stockholm. During the days of the Swedish fashion Week, I documented the backstage and fashion show by designer Fadi El Khoury. Below you can see a selection of my pictures taken.

I had the great opportunity to follow the fashion show of the designer Fadi El Khoury during the Swedish Fashion Week in Stockholm. In this gallery I want to tell the story of the preparation the day before the show: Fadi's team was working on last details of the cloths, doing a selective casting of the models. Everything has to look right and there's lot of work to get the perfection. Was nice to see and photograph this preparation and feeling the excitement for the show that was coming the day after.

Peterhof is a palace of the Zar Peter the Great. This beautiful place has a very huge visitable garden and the palace remember the residence of the great emperors like the Versailles palace in France. What amazed me the most was the gold sculptures inside the garden: there was a nice light reflected through the water and bouncing on the gold that creates a great contrast for some black and white images.

Second part of the trip in Northern Europe: in this image galleries I propose the photographs taken in Tallinn and Helsinki. Both Tallinn and Helsinki have impressed me favorably: the two towns are very quiet and clean in the center. You can walk and breathe a very the fresh and crisp air! Tallinn has a historic center that resembles a country in the middle of Bavaria: the influences of the former Soviet regime have disappeared almost completely and the town, being very close to the banks of Finns, is a modern city with great company in the IT segment (for example, Skype was born here) I found Helsinki a great place to live in, thanks to the wide streets and a tram system very efficient, though at the same time is certainly one of the most expensive cities in Europe. In the morning for breakfast, croissant and cappuccino you can easily spend 5 Euro!

To celebrate in a great way my 30th birthday, I planned to do a trip with my friend Andrea. We decided to leave at the begin of August to go the North European Countries. Our first steps were Vilnius and Riga. Vilnius is a bit smaller than Riga and looks a bit more neo-classical, with a great church in the center of the city in that style. In Riga we haven't had great weather, so we couldn't appreciate so much the historical center how we did in Vilnius. We were renting a car in Vilnius: in this way we were able to drove from Vilnius to Riga and then to Tallin. On the road we were stopping on the north sea to take some great photos in that peaceful landscape.

In a sunny afternoon of August in Tallin we shoot this portfolio photo session with Gerli. Even if it's summer, the temperature is not so high (compared to Italian standard!) and there was a nice and not so strong wind to move a bit the cloth of the model. We found this beautiful architectural construction just facing the sea: inside it there was the right contrast between sun and light, a very good situation to get good black and white photos. For this session I've used the 85mm f/1.4 from Samsung on mirrorless camera. The result was quite amazing, the lens is very good in sharpness and has a very nice bokeh!

In this photo session I want to work on a great black and white contrast. I am very fascinated about the work of the great photographer Herb Ritts, and looking to his work as a great source of inspiration: his style is just simply and elegance. So I was trying to work with Anna, to get back a bit of the style of that black and white images. I've shooted all the session with an old Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f/1.4 on the Samsung Mirrorless: the contrast and Bokeh of that lens is something amazing and gives to the black and white an extra boost. We took this photos in the beautiful Chianti's Land in a nice sunny Summer day.
