A Closer Look at Nature with Macro Photographer Alberto Panizza


THAT SHOT
WITH ALBERTO GHIZZI PANIZZA I love to take
all kind of macro photography, but I am mostly known
for dewdrops photography and insect portraits. If I want to find a still subject, I have to wake up
very early in the morning. When I walk
through the fields and flowers I can only hear the noise of the wind
and the moving grass, and it’s easy to find a still subject
for macro photography. I love to take pictures
of tiny creatures like insects and snails. I always see them interacting
between them or watching me. It’s really nice to learn their lives. If you want to do macro photography,
you have to be very patient, and you have to know your camera because all the settings
are important. The D850 is now my preferred
Nikon camera to the macro photography because it can work
without any vibration. This is the most important problem
in macro photography, when you introduce vibration such as when you press the release
button on the top of the camera. Now I can use the silent mode and the camera can take automatic
focus stacking sequence, so I can touch the screen
to start the camera and the camera
can do it all by itself. Near my house there is a river,
and so there is a lot of humidity. You can find natural dew drops
on the blades of grass. Dewdrops can reflect
all the background inside every drop, and it’s really funny because every drop
is different from each other. Usually people think that is
an effect done in post-production but you can see with your own eye
through the dewdrops and see the world
inside every single drop. I visited a lot of countries
in the world. I’ve traveled a lot. I have seen a polar bear,
wild eagles, but the most known pictures of mine
are just insects taken near my house in the places where I usually go
almost every morning. CAMERA: D850
