About the blog
The internet is all around us, and while it has the potential to share what we do and help us learn new things, we rarely use it that way – most of the time we are the ones being used. Social media needs our content and personal information, for free of course, and gives us very little in return. Popular photography websites are little more than promotional showcases for brands and e-commerce giants – their reviews are not meant to inform us about something that could solve our problems, they are a way to make us want to spend money and make their sponsors happy.
To be honest, when I think about photography, I don’t think about an Amazon wishlist or Instagram likes. I think about photographers I admire, improving my knowledge and how I interact with the world.
Photography is a form of expression: the circus of likes and the never-ending begging for our money has nothing to do with it.
It’s incredible how Google and Facebook have worked hard to make blogging something old-fashioned, when in fact it’s a wonderful concept – so I decided to create a blog and share what I care about.
I will occasionally review equipment, but only after using it for work and passion – and I will buy all the equipment I review. No “hands-on review” or “company X sent me this to review”. No affiliate links. No hidden sponsorship.
Photography is philosophical in many ways and I will try to touch on that in the blog. I’m a writer and sometimes I use photography to go where I can’t go with words. And vice versa.
If you like the blog and would like to see it evolve, please consider subscribing to the mailing list I will use to share notifications of new posts.
One last thing: I am Italian and have somehow learnt English on my own, so forgive the mistakes I am sure to make!
