The temperature may still be mild in Milan, but Autumn can be felt in the air. The trees and their leaves have turned yellow almost everywhere and also the cement and the buildings have a a bit decadent look. Autumn in Milan gives melancholy.
To the mountains, Autumn is so far cry from it. Colors are beautiful: more high than ever, yellow and orange and red to go off your head! I’d like to catch these colors and print them over me. I shot trying to freeze emotions, but sometimes emotions are so intense that not even a photo is enough to catch them.
Meanwhile, my second photography tutorial has been published on donnamoderna.com and it seems that my plain suggestions are pleasing to audience. This afternoon I tried to practice them, because I’m interested in giving really useful and handy suggestions, not just theory (otherwise they could simply buy a textbook and study it…) and I really wanna go back to my first shots to remind myself what it means and what I would have wanted someone to tell me at that time.
Here’s the result:
Here we are… I broke cover and I can’t find a good excuse not to write on this blog any longer . Today my first tutorial about photography was published on donnamoderna.com (the leader magazine by the most important italian editor). The idea first came to my mind when I was showed for the umpteenth time a picture of a friend’s kid: all my friends are so proud of their kids…and that’s right ’cause there’s no doubt that they all are lovely. But let me say that most of the time the picture doesn’t do justice to them, yet it wouldn’t be difficult to get a much better result! So I proposed to the editorial staff of donnamoderna.com a series of tutorials for the beginners, ’cause when talking about a good shot…you have to do what you have to and you have to do it straightaway!! And in that case, any option is a good one: a reflex camera, a compact camera or even a mobile phone. Cause I know how much a mum loves to act as photographer for her kids!
Few basic, usefull advices: straight skyline, avoid backlight not to make a mess of the shot, the famous rule of third (to know just to decide how to break it) and never ask people to pose for you!!
I’m curios to see what my readers will do with my advices and I know for sure that, as soon as they see how easy is to take a good picture, they won’t stop shooting…ever. Poor kids!! It’s not their fault if they can change our goals…This happend to me: all in a sudden I realized that recording monets was not enough…I wanted to freeze feelings.
By the way, these are some of my first shots:
I almost forgot…it’s obvious that my tutorials address anyone, not just mums!
