Happy new year to all my friends and fans! The 2017 is the year of the rooster in the chinese astrological calendar. In my picture a #wagashi (a soft sweet rice cake for the #teaceremony,#chanoyu) shaped like an egg or a snow ball with the face of a rooster on it. I used a laquered plate with red finishing and gold decorations. Photo © Flavio Gallozzi - All rights reserved.

The book is printed on photographic paper, the quality is great and the finishing too, the paper is very thick. Thanks to the color profile downloadable from the web site, the photo are exactely as I intended, the intensity and definition are great, I printed only black and white photos, I think the color would be fine as well.
I was a bit worry about uploading jpg files, but the result is fine, no "steps" on large gray surfaces.
The thick "filled" cover I choosed is nice, on the site they discourage the choice of matt surface for the cover, but I'm really happy with the feeling.
The uploading process is not so easy, from the web site or with the free Saal software, it needs improving, several times i had errors. I wrote asking assistance, and the reply to my mail arrived after the book itself, not usefull indeed.
Nadeshiko, the subtle allure of Japanese women.
Portraits and sensual details of Japanese women I had the pleasure of taking photograph of, is not erotic photography, but is about sensuality and elegance.
The text is compose by quotation from Japanese authors I love, like Kawabata, Tanizaki, Kenko,Shonagon,Setouchi, Yasushi.
This book is a limited edition photo book, if you are interested, please contact me for more details.
