Ciaooo!

Hi! I'm Francesca, from Italy! I'm new here and I don't own a reflex but a friend of mine introduced me in Pentax's word!
In my life I study at the University. I really like singing, listening to music, reading and I'm trying to learn german.
I'm here to learn more from you all and share experieces each other. I'm a biginner in this world, hope photography will be soon among my hobbies.
Recently I'm reading books about photography, especially about great phographers of the past such as Robert Capa, Cartier Bresson, Cecil Beaton and Robert Doisneau.

well, "see" you soon on this forum!

Hi Francesca, welcome to the forums!

You really need to pick up a camera and start shooting, you don't know what you're missing out on! We have some great knowledgeable people here that can help you with almost any film or digital photography related questions.

With a username like that I thought of a certain card game that came from Japan.

I know, indeed I'm here to understand what I should buy to start shooting!




However, thanks you all for your welcome! Nice to meet you! Herzlichen Dank!

Welcome aboard!
don't forget to check the used market for an affordable camera - you don't need the newest to do good work, learn, and have fun!
If you put a want ad here on the Marketplace you might find someone willing to give a student a bargain.

Weiß Schwarz - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It's a game called Weiß Schwarz. I have friends who are really into it and are nationally ranked in it.

The black and white that I do is higher nanometer infrared. It is fun and gives a beautiful otherworldly look to photos. Get out, take pics, and post them here! I'm interested in seeing your work.

Welcome here, many of the Magnum photographers IMHO were truly awesome, worth checking out some of the others apart from Capa .

sure, near where I live there is an exhibition called "magnum contact sheets" and I'm going to visit it tomorrow or on sunday! It's based on the relative book. They show the most famous photos from magnum's agency and explain how they chose the photos they have published. It should be really interesting!

thanks for your advice! I think I'll buy a secondhand, I don't have so much money saved to buy a brand-new one.

I have some of them mixed in on my Deviant Art. I have a link to that in my signature. I need to put some more of my stuff up, and I can see where I've gotten better than I used to be.
