Camping under the stars
by Simone Miotto
The last autumn I went to the Lake of Thures, situated approximately at 2000 meters on
Valleè Etroite - French Alps, to photograph at sunset and at dawn, during the night I lit a fire near my tent for shelter myself from the cold and I decided to potohgraph this scene.
Equipment: Nikon D300 - Nikkor AF-S 16-85 ED VR
was born in Piedmont, in Italy in 1989. I’ve always loved nature and particularly alpine environment, this love soon developed into enjoying taking photographs of natural landscapes. I began taking pictures in some ways for fun, until I bought my first camera body, a small Nikon D40x, and started learning the first technical core issues of photography.
After the beginning period of emphasis, in which every subject was a good one to be photographed, I realized that the most interesting to me was just natural landscape, which is still the genre I like best, even though I don’t despise the others such as life portrait or naturalistic photography, which I’d like to approach soon.
I adore taking pictures at dawn and at dusk, where the light is able to emphasize best the landscape I want to immortalize. My way of photographing is a continuing effort to improve, and I’m aware of how much there still is to discover and learn.
