I was born in 1967, I live and work in the hinterland of Venice (Italy).
I am a member of the photoclub effemme - fotoamatori mestrini.
This is my personal photoblog started in August 2005.
Shots can be recent or old, selected among my photos and slides collected during my life.
First of all, for me, photo means emotion: every shot is a particular blend among its message, its subject and technique.
I don't know if I'm a good photographer, however this photoblog is a spur to force myself watching reality
with new glance, trying to be more creative and less banal. I hope you like at least some my shots. If
it's so - or otherwise too - I'll appreciate to read your opinions in the comments.

I started to take shots when I was a teenager with my father's Nikon F3HP and I remained loyal to this
brand. My first camera, bought with my first salary, was a Nikon FM2 which is still in my bag. I changed many
cameras (film or digital type) and many lenses during my life, so now this is my current equipment:
Minox 35 AL
Leica D-Lux 3
AF fisheye Nikkor 10.5mm f/2.8 G ED DX
AI Nikkor 20mm f/3.5

All my shots are processed with Adobe Photoshop or Nikon Capture NX2 or some
other stuff (es: RawTherapee), using a monitor calibrated with Datacolor Spyder3pro.
