Not long ago, photography became one of my favorite interests. I am fascinated by the possibility to preserve precise moments on paper, and photography is a great tool to do that. At first, I took photos with my smartphone, and you have to admit that those little devices nowadays feature very good cameras. However, they are no comparison to reflex cameras. One year ago, a good friend of mine gave me an analogue reflex camera as a present. It was a Minolta Maxxum 3000i with a Sigma 28-70 mm f/3,5-4,5 object lens. My first photos using this camera were taken in South Tyrol in 2016, where I stayed during holidays.
