|So, after a lot of people asked more or less the same things, I think it's time to write my FAQs.|
Which lens do you use for your macros?
Once I used my 18-55 zoom plus additional close-up lenses, but one year ago I bought a 50mm f1.4 lens, and now I make my macro shots with it and close up filters.
Yes, also my snowflake photos!
I've also a 100mm macro lens; I bought it recently.
How do you take your bird photographs?
I've always been shooting with a 70-300 zoom lens; once I used one without IS, then I changed it with a stabilized lens.
But the secret is not only a telezoom...you have to be able to get close to birds, and listen to them!
Are all those pets yours?
Yep, but not all of them! Some belong to friends or relatives!
Mine are some cats, e.g. Dexter, Elvis, Daisy..., Silver the chinchilla, Ariosto the Goldfinch and I do also have some dogs.
But not eac animal you see in the gallery is mine!
How do you get those colours in the photos?
I don't edit all my photos in the same way; I prefer curves (mostly created by myself) and color balance, but each photo requires different steps. I do also use Camera Raw for basic adjustments e.g. contrast, sharpness...
Did you study Art?
Yep. I've been studying photography at my city's art academy and I gave up last summer.I've been working in a fashion photo studio, and now I help an event Photographer, but I keep on taking nature shots in my free time.
