My name is Andrea Pacini, aka HARDKORE79, I'm based in Prato and I have been shooting since 1995, when I took over my first disposable camera, packed in some tinfoil and hidden in my bag between the sandwiches in order to get past security at the entrance to concerts. Photographically speaking, the results were of course awful, but from that moment on I finally started expressing myself through photography and everything that happened around me!
Around 2000 I abandoned the disposable camera for a compact digital Kodak machine, and then, finally, I bought my first reflex camera a little time later: I was always carring it with, especially at the Bmx events, during which I learned how to capture the right moment of the trick / evolution with one single shot. Sports and concerts have been a great school for me actually, for by shooting at those kind of events, I really learned how to capture the perfect moment. This skills reaveled to be really precious as I began to get closer to the Street Photography. I have always took some street photos during my travels, but since 2010 I have made it my expertise.
My idea of Street Photography is like a treasure hunt: to take great street photos I have to constantly look around, watch over everything around me (people, animals, cars, shadows, reflections). A beautiful photo may be everywhere, as long as you observe with watchful eye and you're always ready to shoot, because it takes just a second more and the precious moment for the perfect picture has already gone; for this reason I'm always keeping my camera ready in hand and never around my neck like tourists do!
To date, my street kit is very simple, but really functional: Canon 5D mkIII with Canon 135mm f2 or Canon 85mm f1.8 (depending on the city type) and the Canon 24mm f1.4 in a bag tied to the belt, polarizer already set up on each lens (if necessary) and ready to go!
