Going Back to How it all Started
Alberto’s father was a painter and ever since he was a young boy he has always found that art was a pleasing way for him to spend his time. Drawing and painting drove his creative spirit to eventually become an amazing photographer who captures the character, spirit and even the thoughts of insects and animals big and small.
Like most successful photographers, he started out getting up at the crack of dawn to photograph the insects close by before heading off to work. After 10 years of doing this, he learned to understand the characteristics and behaviour of his little subjects and learned the macro photography technique of photo stacking. This technique is used to increase depth-of-field and obtain perfectly sharp images. “What makes this technique so difficult is that if you have just one shot in your shot sequence that is wrong or out of focus, it throws off the whole photograph and you have to try it all over again. So it takes lots of hours behind the camera practicing to perfect this method.”
