Interview with my Flickr friend AngeloCesare

Playing with the year

1. How did you first get interested in photography? And are

From childhood. I love National Geographic photographers and I've bought a lot of books.

Watching and watching.

Lens? 18-70 mm

3. What equipment and software do you use?

My preferred camera is a Nikon D200 (10,2 megapixel), with:
AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G IF-ED (135 equivalent of 27-105mm zoom range);
AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300 mm (135 equivalent of 105-450mm zoom range) f /4.5-5.6 G IF-ED.
I also use a Nikon Coolpix 8700 (8,0 megapixel), optical Zoom Nikkor ED 8.9-71.2 mm (8x), 1:2,8-4,2.
Sometimes I use a compact camera Sony DSC T3, 5.1 megapixels, optical zoom 3x.
And finally a cameraphone: Nokia N95.

Software? Photoshop.

4. Which one item of equipment is the most important for

Nikon D200 plus tripod and Photoshop: together.

And is there another area of talent you would like to

Music: electric guitar. And golf.

11. Have you met other flick rites in person, and how was
the experience?

No. I want not. Flickr is as a Second Life! And Second Life is a second life.

12. Any words of advice for those who would like to dig
deeper into photography?

Shots, shots, shots and... shots. Camera is a friend.

13. Of all the photos you've taken, what is your favorite
and why?
