a wonderful christmas present.

I know that Christmas is long gone but I still need to write about something I haven't had the occasion to mention yet - in fact I have received a fantastic gift from Jacopo that has made me truly happy: a real set of professional studio lights.
1st tryouts with my studio light kit:

Mamiya RB67 - fp-100C
♥ in chronological order Jacopo, myself and myself holding Tove.
my Mamiya was absolutely brilliant once synched with the two flashes - and I can sync them with many other cameras of mine: shooting indoors won't ever be a problem again!
a few days before Christmas when Jacopo came home with a huge wrapped up package I had no idea it contained two studio flashes - each with its own tripod and soft box: I was positively stunned. most of all I am extremely happy that he believes so much in what I do to provide me with such an important piece to keep up with my dream. now I have to promise I won't give up doing what I love the most - let this be my new year's resolution.
♥ thank you so much Jacopo!

  10. Jacopo sounds like a wonderful boyfriend! It's especially lovely that he supports your pursuits :) I LOVE the photo of you with Tove - that is so darling! I need a portrait like that with my cat, but unfortunately she is too fiesty to hold hehe. I can't wait to see your various experiments with your new lights x
