Inspiration From The Ancient City of Rome With Giacomo Cardea

Giacomo Cardea is an 28-year-old Italian creative who has always been passionate about photography.

Giacomo’s photography is spell-binding, manipulating color, focus and angles to express a unique perspective.

We had a chat with him about how he got into photography and the curious places he draws inspiration for his photos.

Where do you consider your artistic home? Is there a city, country or neighborhood that inspired you to get into photography?

I started photographing in Rome, my hometown, which certainly offers many inspirational cues. But I also love photographing nature in all its aspects.

Which camera do you use?
 I use a Canon 6D.
What time of day do you prefer to shoot, night or day?
My favorite time to take is the golden hour and the blue hour, which are respectively the hours before dawn and follow the sunset because during these hours the low sun on the horizon makes everything extra-magically and dreamlike.
Did you go to school to study photography?
At first, it was just a passion, then after graduating, I decided to attend a master’s degree in photography at Romeur Academy Visual in Rome.
The Fox Magazine is all about inspiration, what/who inspires you the most?
Everything around us can become a source of inspiration in my mind, just knowing it with the right eye.
How would you describe your photography style?
I have a fairly particular style of photography, I love motion photography long exposures and double exposures, and I love to merge these methods to get unique and different images.
If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?
It’s hard to choose a single lens, for traveling I  would carry with me the canon 24 to 105 mm because it is a very versatile lens, but for portraits, i love very much the fixed lenses like 85 and 50 mm.
What’s something people would be surprised to learn about you?
I am very perfectionist, I always want to take care of my photographs in every detail.
What’s your best advice for aspiring photographers?
Take photos as much as possible, try to look at each image in your mind from different points of view and not focalize on one style but explore them all until you find your personal inspiration.
