"A beautiful subject does not make a great photographer."
I am an amateur photographer based in Italy. Photography is my passion but not my work so I usually make photos for free and only on projects that I like. I don't think that the skill is measured on likes count so I stay away from social networks and I don't care if my subjects are famous or not. I take portraits and cosplay pictures, but I like also harajuku, sports, gothic dark and shibari photography. The idea, the scenography, the shot and the 2D or 3D retouching must be consistent with each other throughout the photographic work creation process. They are not things to be avoided at all: the photography in the twenty-first century is not only the content of a 24 poses camera roll.
30 Giugno 2020: Per la serie "la modella risponde": "ciao, sinceramente a me non interessa il portfolio, ma m interessano le proposte con compenso".
Traduco: "scatto con cani e porci, basta che paghino"
Morale: ricordate che "cani e porci" in quelle foto non ci mettono la faccia...
The portrait is fascinating and is probably one of the genres that I find most difficult. I wish my shots tell emotions. A photo, however beautiful, if not accompanied by a feeling, tells me nothing.
I have never taken unknown landscapes or exotic animals. I'm not lucky enough to be able to travel often, and it's probably not even what I want to tell. I like common landscape and what i can find in my every day life.
I have taken cosplay photography for many years. It is a genre that offers many opportunities. Unfortunately today it has been inflated and invaded by beginners who shoot only sexy subjects, without even knowing the characters played by the cosplayer.
We call it adult contents and we forbid them, but teens bathroom selfies make thousands likes. Looking around on social network you will see pictures of dead animals, horrible diseases and violence widespread regardless of the sensitivity of children. Censorship is required for nipples.
Some years ago I was an professional stuntman in an international team that works in movies like King Arthur, Rome, New Moon, The Eagle, Robin Hood, Avengers, L'Industriale, La Freccia Nera, Colorado, Violetta and many more.
