I recently realised that sometimes letting go is much harder than holding tight. But a few things have been dragging for too long and the only way to move on is to let things go and turn the page.
This is a list of things that I’m officially dismissing:
Do not expect any of them to get updates any soon. Good bye and so long.
What is success, how to get a hold on it?
This video is one of the best answer to these questions. It’a talk about photography by world class photographers. Do yourself a favor and watch it now. Enjoy!
A few weeks ago I started a new online adventure in the form of a photo portfolio. At the very beginning I just wanted to have all of my best pictures on the same website but then I started publishing content on a regular basis and I realised that having a focused topic was helping me to be very frequent in my blogging activity.
I blog about my photography, techniques I use, photo-shootings I complete. You will find my best shots and the behind the scene of my studio and street activity.
I have to admit that I’m not blogging here very frequently, at least not as frequent I used to do in the past. My life has changed in the last few months, a few things have moved forward and others got stuck along the journey.
This blog is going to stay and every now and then I’ll keep on publishing stuff, but at the moment I’m very focused on my photoblog/portfolio. If you want to have a look and add it to your daily readings I’ll be more than happy.

“Don’t get screwed over” is a very nice social experiment to raise awareness on working with legal papers when freelancing. These people were engaged promising to be payed five dollars for their drawings. But then the payment was refused because the result was not good enough. The reactions are very interesting. Enjoy the video

I landed yesterday in Singapore to visit my friends Lisa and Simone. I’ll be here for a week and beside my job I will spend a lot of time taking pictures in the street. Today was my first day and I went to Chinatown. In a few hours I found out three things about this awesome city:
Different perception of personal distance
Studying martial arts I learned that every person feels a personal bubble around himself. When someone enters that bubble we feel awkward and we raise up our psychological defenses. The more dense the city, the smaller the bubble. For this reason getting really close to people, while taking pictures in the street, is very easy in Singapore.
Different relationship with food
In chinatown the food is everywhere and saying hello to your live crab before his final trip to the kitchen is very common.
People are really open
As soon as I raised up my camera to take pictures of his booth, this man started to dance for me and wanted to pose with his roasted duck. I’m so excited about the amazing adventures I’m going to have during the next days in here.
