Interview: Photographer Nicola Rossignoli (Italia)

Can you tell us a little about you?

My name is Nicola, I live in Italy in the province of Verona, I am 50 years old and as a job I am an electrician, I have a passion for photography that I would like to turn into work but I am aware that it is a very difficult thing and I suffer from it. I have been married for 25 years and have two adorable girls aged 11 and 13.

How and when did you get into photography?

I have been approaching photography for about 20 years, a bit for fun thanks to a friend, then I neglected it for a short time and then made it an obsession in recent years.

What does photography mean to you?

For me, photography is a moment frozen in time, I think it doesn't have to convey a message, but it can simply be "a beautiful photograph".

Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.

I started like everyone else, shooting anything, then over time I became passionate about the street and only in black and white, for about three years I threw myself on the portrait and exclusively in color, I think this is my way, portrait always linked to the urban landscape, sometimes I try a little more constructed shots, it always depends on the project that I can think of to depict, I love playing with color and I am very fond of post production.

Where do you get inspiration from?

I'm an avid YouTube user, self-taught, but I usually get my inspiration at the design level from Pinterest.

Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?

Yes, let's say that I plan the shooting well in advance, (location, times, poses, etc. etc.), I hate presenting myself unprepared, I don't think it makes a good impression.

Studio, on location or both?

I prefer to shoot outdoors, exclusively with artificial lights, I always like to look for new locations, I have a small room used as a studio but I don't use it frequently.

Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?

For me, photography is just a hobby for now, but as I have already said if it became a profession I would be very happy.

What has been your most memorable session and why?

I have none in particular, all I consider memorable, I have a lot of fun.

Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?

Nikon, I have a D810 for now, every now and then I think about jumping to mirrorless, but finances don't allow me for now, I love fixed lenses, I prefer to move around the set, I don't have many lenses, a 35 and an 85 both f1. 4, a 50 f1.8 and the only zoom is a 14-24 f2.8.

What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?

Being a hobbies I would not know how to answer, but an advice to someone who wants to approach photography is to "experiment".

What do you think of our new magazine?

I have known her recently but it seems very interesting to me, I think I will follow her more frequently.
