Photography
For about 4 months I was hired as lead photographer to digitize a huge collection of artistic masterpieces from a large amount of important painters (Giotto, Vasari, Lippi and Annigoni among the others).
Some of them were so large we had to take about 60~90 pictures to stitch and postprocess them in a second time in order to reach the desired quality. We also had to face problems with golden frames, cracked canvasses, different materials, embossings, etc. but we managed to solve them all brilliantly. And within the deadline!


A professional setup (and a young clever assistant) - shot taken with an iPhone
Effective focus on every little detail in each shooting (it's burning, let's change the lights)
more than 600 masterpieces from old Italian artists
1:1 scale (canvas needs restaurations, uh?)
