Photographer: Enrico Giovanni Munari (Italy)
Can you tell us a little about you?
My name is Enrico Munari. I’m a mechanical engineer from Reggio Emilia.
I’m dedicated to photography since I was a child. My work are available in social networks such as Facebook and Instagram.
How and when did you get into photography?
I am dedicated to photography since I was a child. Photography is my father’s passion handed down. Growing up, I became keen on modelling.
What does photography mean to you?
Photography means being able to transmit emotions in the eyes of the beholder.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
Currently I’m choosing black and white photos in a glamour key seeking “minimal” shots,
knowing that I prefer to give photo’s subject space stopping the best moment and emotions.
Where do you get inspiration from?
I prefer natural light in both open and closed spaces, but in extreme cases there is no lacking in the use of led lights.
Do you think in advance what you want in the picture?
Of course! I normally prepare a mood board. After this, with the model and based on the project, I search for the focus that I want to express.
Studio, on location or both?
I had the chance to shoot in studios but certainly I prefer to shoot on location.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
At the moment I’m a hobbyist but who knows! It would be fantastic to become a paid professional.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
My best session was certainly the one with Valentina, a woman from Rome who would have become a special friend for me. We did a lot session with her and we create a strong understanding.
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
My camera is a Canon 5D Mark III. I prefer 85 mm len but I gladly use 35mm and 50 mm one. I certainly like to use analog camera thanks to my father’s passion.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
My advice is to find your style from famous photographers and hard work. Might give yourself time to learn techniques and try and retry again to shot. One of the best phrases ispired me is “ The first 10.000 shots will be your worst” from Henri Cartier-Bresson
What do you think of our new magazine?
I discover your new Magazine on Facebook and I think is so interesting for my hobby.
I can see others point of view to improve myself.
