Cooking it is also a kind of art so in some ways can be related to photography. :)
Anyway Osteria Francescana it is 1 km from where i live but unfortunatelly i never been there for dinner.
I have some friends that go there usually and they talk very good about.
The chef, M.Bottura, it is very famous and well consider in all Europe and i heard that he is one of the best chefs in the world so even if i didn’t eat there i can suggest you to try anyway..
Ciao!

Comment on How to take criticism: Part 2, learn how to give it properly by Curtis http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/2016/04/how-to-take-criticism-part-2-learn-how-to-give-it-properly/#comment-6178 Curtis Mon, 23 May 2016 23:33:07 +0000 http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/?p=8383#comment-6178 Just discovered your website: thank you so much for these informative and inspiring articles. I’ve recently been taken with photography but have struggled to transition from the apprentice to journeyman level, so to speak. It’s so difficult to find compelling discussions of theory that move beyond exposure triangles and rule of thirds (or sites that stress the mechanical side of camera, as important as that can be). What I’ve gained from your articles is a desire to study the histories of photography and painting, and this has renewed my enthusiasm and rekindled my hope that I’ll move off the plateau I’ve found myself on. Thanks so much. Still contemplating your final point about detecting the *presence* of the photographer. Reminds me of a sentence in Galen Rowell’s _Mountain Light_ about good photography communicating/preserving an emotion, which I also found striking (how is a landscape emotional?). I’ve been wielding cameras since I was a kid in the 80s/90s, but I always thought that I was merely recording what was already there — “documenting” family and travels, etc.

Thank you for the invitation. Modena has been on my list…I’d like to visit Osteria Francescana. Have you eaten there? It is a slightly different subject than photography, but appears to be amazing.

I saw you into the B&H video on YouTube and i found now your website. :)
Anyway…i saw that a few weeks ago you’ve been in Firenze and, if you are still in Italy, i can suggest you to visit also Bologna or Modena.
You may find something interesting and if you need a free guide just say me something.
Nice job and ciao!
Alex.

Comment on Your questions answered: Who should I study to improve my craft? by Tom Campbell http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/2016/05/your-questions-answered-who-should-i-study-to-improve-my-craft/#comment-6170 Tom Campbell Thu, 19 May 2016 16:06:45 +0000 http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/?p=8377#comment-6170 Any artist who is not also something of a historian is unlikely to be or to continue to be actually ‘creative.’ Any ‘breakthroughs’ in creativity upon deep study, end up not being out of nowhere, but a result of persistence built upon deep knowledge of earlier persons’ accomplishments plus, often, a dash of inspiration, that itself combines elements from before. Newness resides in the combinations of earlier ideas, the sum of which no one has tried or explored before. Very little can be shown to be without any precedent or prior effort.
Where I’m going with this is to assert beyond the content of this article, that the nearly universal lack of knowledge of image structure IS ignorance and detracts from the likelihood of real ‘creativity.’

Re your example by della Francesca: Page 97 in one of my all-time favorite books, and, IMNHO, one of the single most important books on art ever written, Charles Bouleau’s “The Painter’s Secret Geometry,” where he notes the use of two very common geometric schemes, rabatment for the architecture and the 4/6/9 musical ratio to place the figures. There is zero probability that this is a product by one lacking of knowledge and intensive use of these then common and well-known among artists techniques. A lengthy discussion of della Francesca’s art starts on page 90 and is fit into the use of musical consonances in 16th C art.

Comment on Your questions answered: Who should I study to improve my craft? by Gary Thursby http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/2016/05/your-questions-answered-who-should-i-study-to-improve-my-craft/#comment-6169 Gary Thursby Thu, 19 May 2016 14:48:52 +0000 http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/?p=8377#comment-6169 Yes great article Adam! Of course I know Della Francesca but will have to look into Ucello and Cezanne. Loved how you said not knowing what came before doesn’t make you innovative but makes you ignorant. Very true. You know I also started appreciating great works of art and artist even more when you learn the history of art and the artist. When I learned Michangelo life story it made me value his art even more (which was crazy because he is my favorite artist) because he apprenticed and learned art history/technique too. The weird thing is sometimes I do not care for an artists personal life and it probably taints how I view their work. For example my good friend favorite artist is Salvador Dali. Yes I think he has some amazing paintings but I can’t help see a pompous arrogant kooky guy paint them. That may be unfair and even a different discussion. You are so correct though, Adam, art history is so storied and filled with great contributors its a crime to be totally ignorant of it.

Comment on Sneak Peek: A\MARELLI x Chapman Camera Bag by adam http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/2016/03/sneak-peek-amarelli-x-chapman-camera-bag/#comment-6165 adam Mon, 16 May 2016 11:56:58 +0000 http://www.adammarelliphoto.com/?p=8335#comment-6165 Dear Carlos,

When I go out for the day shooting, I often bring a camera with a lens, a small notebook, my phone, headphones and often a book to read. It all depends.

There are times when I go out with only a camera, but especially when Im abroad there are a few other things I carry, thus the camera bag.

Im not sure what part you did not understand?

Best-AM
