How was the weekend? Mine was pretty heavy given the huge amount of commitments, but on Saturday I had the opportunity to go to Photoshow 2013 in Milan with three brave companions: Stefania (my girlfriend, who you already know), Alessandro and Fabio!
We started very early to arrive on time for opening.. and voila, here we are at Photoshow at 9 o’clock! … Too early, the gates were opened at 10! 😀 Okay, we took the opportunity for a nice coffee refreshing after the trip.
Once inside we looked at all the stands calmly, and then of course we stopped in the Canon one (well we were all equipped Canon ..) and try a little things. Personally, I tried the 200mm f\2 IS and the 85mm f\1.2. What can I say, without words .. the 200 is truly spectacular, and the 85 also .. between the two, however, I would take the 200mm, I love the full-length photo taken with a telephoto lens (now I do I do the 135 f\2 for this work hehe).
One thing I was disappointed though .. I wanted to try out the new Canon flash, the 600EX-RT, but it was not available, and among other things I have not even seen exhibited around the Canon stand! Such a pity!
As for the other stands, I found particularly pleasing the Samsung one. In fact, besides giving a bag containing also an always useful post-it (and not just brochures), Samsung was the only one (in my opinion) to make a nice photo shoot. I refer in particular to the white with splashes of color and model wearing a jumpsuit prepared in the same way (find a picture below). All the others do not attracted me (obviously personal tastes ..), and especially the one with the poor girl with the umbrella with blue sky background with clouds (which perhaps was still part of the Samsung stand .. I don’t remember well).
In addition I found three of you who follow me, and two have also managed to take a souvenir photo together!
In the end it was a beautiful day spent with good friends, and with a final highway fun! (We were going to stop due to lack of fuel!).
I hope next year to know a few more of you!
I leave you and point out that in the page What I read? I added the book review Carrie Beene, Real Retouching, if you want to read it 🙂
See you soon!
