For the 91th edition of the male fashion fair "Pitti Immagine Uomo" in Florence, i got the idea to use the Fujifilm Instax film to create a little photo project with some of the visitors.

The idea was to photograph the guests with the Instax camera, then to re-photograph them with the digital camera. The Instax film was going to be a gift for the guest while the digital picture has been published on the official website of the Pitti Immagine Uomo organization.

One of the biggest highlight of this 2016 for me was the opportunity to be the photographer for the Bonollo's brand. Bonollo is an historical brand in Italy.  Since 1908 they are producing the best Italian Grappa; now they have a brand new product called Gra'it, a grappa that from the beginning was created aiming the blending. In this way, talented bartenders have the opportunity to create new interesting cocktails.[gallery special_type="1-2" link="file" size="full" ids="7085,7086,7087"]

This is the second post from the recent trip I had in Marocco in the city of Marrakech (you can read the first part here).In this post I will go on with the story with other photos taken around the city of Marrakech.

A nice lunch time at "La Famille"

"La Famille" is a cozy beautiful place in the hearth of Marrakech. I've to say we've find this place by causality just walking around! I remember we were just looking for a small resturant where to have our lunch and we've found this beautiful place!

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 stockisti.com 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 androidworld.it for the collaboration, giving this device for the test]

I've been quite surprised about Marrakech. I wasn't expecting to find this colorful place where the street of the old Medina looks like a labyrinth! With this post (and the next one) I will try to get back the memories of this trip with the pictures I've shoot in Marrakech. Like usual for my trip, my photo equipment was very small to let me to travel light. I've bring with me the

A portrait session with Olya in Marrakech, inside the Riad Khol. I love the location of this typical Riad. The place is so unique and offer a great set for photos. For this pictures I've used natural light and two lens: the X100T with the fixed 35mm equivalent and the X-Pro2 with the 16mm (24mm equivalent).  Unlucky during this trip I haven't get with me other longer lens for more portrait, but those two lens was perfect to be able to capture the environment of the Riad in Marrakech.

The One Plus 3 smartphone amazed me in many way. Since the introduction of the first model, the One Plus One (that I've reviewed here),  the company focused on producing a stellar device on budget. The first iteration was a very good product even if it suffer from some young problems (like the LCD touch problems). The second iteration last year was good but not as good as we were expecting.

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:

A portrait photo session taken with the models Petra and Petra in Rovinj, Croatia. This photos I've taken just before the summer in Rovinj when the colors was still strong and bright and especially, there wasn't tourist around the beach getting the sun! :) Was one of the first time I've used my new Fujifilm X-Pro2 using in this session mainly the 90mm f/2: what an amazing lens for the sharpness and the colors you can get out of it! I've to say that

A portrait photo session in the studio in Florence with Lara, working with different color backgrounds: I've started with the classical white one that gives a nice diffuse light. Then I want to play with colors so I've shoot with the green screen that usually we use for some video cutout. Well, I asked Lara to wear a red t-shirt to get a strong color contrast between the foreground and the backgroud. For this portrait session in the studio I let Lara to pose and turning around the light. I've used one continuous Led Light to lit the set.
