Giuseppe De Angelis
Hi, my name is Giuseppe and I am an Italian wedding photographer. My photographic journey began 14 years ago.
I lived the transition from analog to digital, between old 35mm Ilford films and SD memory cards. I studied Reportage Photography at the I.I.F. in Milan, Italy. Today, photography has become an essential part of my life.
When I started photography, I chose the Nikon brand and I have stuck with them over time. I have used a lot of Nikon cameras – D3s, D750, D4s, D5 and D850 reflex cameras. My final choice was the new Z6 mirrorless.
Nikon Z6 II – I use this mirrorless as a primary, it is a reliable, fast camera and it has double slots for backup. The Z6 II has amazing autofocus. I work 80% of the wedding in natural light and the Z6 II makes me work at high ISO without losing detail and I love the color rendering of its files.
Nikon Z6 – I use this mirrorless as a secondary camera, it has the same features as the Z6 II but without the ability to backup files. Reliable.
Mavic Mini – I use the drone for landscape photographs and to show the wedding location, I love the perspectives.
Canon EF Black Beauty – This analog reflex was given to me by my father. I am very fond of this great reflex. I take it with me for some lifestyle outings and street photography. I use the 50mm f/1.8 and the 28mm f/2.8 as a lens.
Nikkor Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S – Fantastic all-round lens. This has superlative quality even at maximum aperture. I use it for most of my shots.
Nikkor Z 14-30mm f/4 S – Lens with large wide angle excursion. I use it little, for the preparation of the bride and groom in small rooms and for couple portraits in breathtaking landscapes.
Nikkor Z 85mm f/1.8 S – Superlative lens, I use it a lot, in church, in civil ceremony, and in couple portraits. It has a fabulous blur, my favorite.
Nikkor Z 35mm f/1.8 S – This lens has bewitched me! I use it in most wedding scenes when I need it blurry in full light and low light situations. I often use it at wedding parties, when the DJ set starts playing, in ambient light it is wonderful.
Godox V1n x2 – I use this flash for its soft light, it has this softness thanks to its round dish. I use it for group and family portraits and for dancing.
Godox xPro N TTL – This is a fantastic trigger to manage Godox flashes.
Hardware & Software
I use an iMac 27, I own the Adobe suite and I use Lightroom for postproduction of my photographs. This program gives me the possibility to work quickly and with a clean and linear workflow – guide here.
I love to take my Ray-Ban eyeglasses with me that allows me to see in 4K super HDR. I also carry a lot of Red Bull cans with me in my car.
I am happy and honored to be part of one of the largest communities of photographers in the world!
