Italian photographer deeply in love with Japan, I share my photos (in Japanese shashin) and my experiences in Japan. I love Japanese art, culture, literature, music, tradition, food, people, elegance and mostly, beautiful women.
The 2013 will be the International Year of Water Cooperation as promoted by the United Nations, this is my work and concept for a comercial advertising for an Italian industry of flexible water pipes. This client is very courageous and intelligent to use images not illustarting their products. This are three images from the calendar with theme Japan: children and adults olding a chawan (cup), we shoot also America, Africa and Europe themed photos. I shoot in my studio with strobes at very low light to achieve shallow focus, using Nikon D3x and 85mm f 1,4. The shoji in the back ground is made using frost film instead of rice paper because more resistant to use as studio prop. Thank you to the nice Japanese family that helped a lot for this shooting.
