Photographer Melinda GueriniComo, Italy temesi
—Are you photogenic?
—How did you get in the photography industry?
—Probably in the same way of most of us: a friend asked me to shoot her wedding, then, since I had already a big passion about photography, after I saw that I enjoyed a lot to capture real moments, I decided-well actually together with my husband Graziano Guerini- to follow that path (step by step).
—What are the most important components of a good photo in your opinion?
—I think there is not an exact answer, everyone likes a photo because of many reasons, also personal reasons given by personal taste.
Personally, using of course a good technique, I aim to capture always the emotions, the real moments, that's what really matters in a perfect service in my opinion.
And in the Creative Sessions I aim to create beautiful photos, so I take care of the esthetique by following my personal sense of taste, but always trying to give some emotions to the viewers.
Also controlling lights and shadows is very important, often essential.
—What do you like most about your profession?
—Shooting weddings in different countries, with different traditions, it's very interesting, and we often work between Italy, Austria and Hungary, but not only.
And this job allows me to meet new people, of course, and this is also a beautiful side of being a wedding photographer.
And being able to give to these people memories they will be joyful to watch in the future, well, that makes me proud.
—How do you handle criticism?
—I'm always studying, always trying new things, and always following photographers whose works I love, and I'm always ready to learn from them.
There is always to learn something new, and there is always someone who can teach me something. So, I usually accept critics if well motivated :)
—Do you like dogs or cats?
—What would you like to change in yourself?
—Can you give a few tips for photographers who are just starting out?
—Study, practice, be humble, open to the world!
