I've got the passion for photography since I was a kid, probably inherited from my father. Already in school trips from elementary I was one of the few with a camera at his neck and in 1998, as soon as i had Internet connection at home, one of the first things I did was the subscribtions to Webshots, the photographs website.
It seems past geological era and makes me feel quite old but I was incredulous and fascinated to see on my monitor photographs taken a few hours before thousands of miles away.
In the era of Facebook and real time sharing makes me laugh (and certainly those who are born with a broadband Internet will find it strange) but at that time the speed connection was about 14.4Kbps and for a single photo it took several minutes and is quite a different experience from the 'here and now' as they now have to do (just think that now from home i connect to the web at 16 Mbps, almost 1200 times more 'fast!).
Until 2009 the passion for photography just watching other people and take great pictures with the compact camera (first with the films and then with digital) during holidays and bank holidays.
Only in 2010, in preparation for an upcoming safari in Africa and led by two 'Nikonist' friends I decided to try buying my first DSLR, a Nikon D3000 with 18-105 lens.
But it was just the beginning because in 2 years I've changed the D3000 with a D7000 and, few months ago, i've bought my first professional DSLR, a Nikon D300s.
Even the lens I have changed and I think I'll change again, always trying to improve the quality of equipment and, hopefully, continue to improve the quality of the photos.
