La fotografia mi ha sempre appassionata, ma non mai trovato il tempo per approfondirla. Un conto è fare foto “ricordo”, un altro è capire a livello tecnico che cosa significhi veramente.
Il 2018 è stato l’anno in cui ho deciso di seguire questa mia passione. Per il mio compleanno mi sono fatta regalare una splendida macchina fotografica (quale occasione migliore?!?) e mi sono iscritta a un corso base di fotografia.

Scegliere la macchina fotografica giusta è stato il primo passo verso il favoloso mondo della fotografia amatoriale, ma confesso che è stato anche il più difficile.
Reflex o mirrorless? Nikon, Canon o Sony? E poi ancora… full frame? E l’obiettivo?
Quando si hanno così tante opzioni come si fa a scegliere?
Quello che ho fatto io è stato parlare con amici appassionati di fotografia, leggere recensioni varie e poi alla fine trovare il giusto rapporto qualità-prezzo per affacciarmi a questo favoloso mondo.

Scegliere la scuola di fotografia in cui fare il corso base è stato molto più semplice: una volta trovate le principali scuole a Milano e letto attentamente tutti i programmi, mi sono iscritta al corso di Officine Fotografiche Milano.

A CHI È ADATTA SONY ALPHA 7?
Piccola e trasportabile facilmente ovunque, Sony Alpha 7 non è una macchina fotografica per professionisti, ma è perfetta per tutti gli amatori che, come me, amano viaggiare e soprattutto viaggiare leggeri.
È una macchina che permette di divertirti con ogni lente possibile, anche quelle vintage, specialmente se vuoi realizzare un’immagine ragionata, con un certo studio dietro.
E grazie alla qualità delle sue immagini Sony A7 potrà regalare grandi soddisfazioni.

I’ve always loved photography, but I never found the time to look into it more closely. It’s one thing to take “amateur” pictures, it’s another thing to understand, at a technical level, what photography actually means.
2018 was the year I decided to follow this passion of mine. I received a wonderful camera for my birthday (what better opportunity?!?) and I enrolled in a basic photography course.

Choosing the right camera was the first step towards the fabulous world of amateur photography, but I must confess that it was also the hardest choice.
Reflex or mirrorless? Nikon, Canon or Sony? And… full frame? And what about the lens?
When you have so many options, how do you go about choosing?
What I did was I spoke with friends who are photography enthusiasts, read various reviews and then I eventually found the right value for money to delve into this fabulous world.

Choosing a photography school for the basic course was much easier: once I found the main schools in Milan and read all the programs carefully, I enrolled in the Officine Fotografia Milano course.

WHO IS THE SONY ALPHA 7 IDEAL FOR?
Small and easily transportable anywhere, Sony Alpha 7 is not a camera for professionals, but it’s perfect for all amateurs who, like me, love to travel light.
It’s a camera that allows you to have fun with every possible lens, even vintage, especially if you want to take reasoned images with a certain level of study behind them.
And thanks to the quality of its images, Sony A7 can give great satisfactions.

The Now

After years spent lusting over sunny California, I was finally able to take a little trip out to San Diego with my mom last month. Immediately after booking my flight, I started scouring the internet for travel guides, recommendations, etc. I always do a lot of research before I go anywhere. Of course, not everything […]

In Malgorzata Bany’s practice, the reproducibility of the moulding technique and the uniqueness of the hand-carved form sit side by side. For the past half-decade she has experimented with cast, carved, and worked forms that consistently blur the boundaries between sculpture and design, combining utilitarian functionality with the principle that objects must stand on their […]
