Italian Fairy Tale - Fotomagoria

Photographed by Fotomagoria

Story

My brand name derives straight from phantasmagoria. My clients often notice and comment on the atmosphere in my photos. It is an integral part of my style, this aura of mystery, and the immersion in a fairy-tale world. The couple was on their honeymoon, in an idyllic state of mind, suspended out of real-life, and living their Dolce Vita dream.

I offered them to travel to the most colorful island in the world, which is located in Italy, hoping that we could immerse ourselves in this carefree and dreamy atmosphere. Earlier, I helped the couple choose their outfit to match the architecture. Of all the colors you can find on the island, I focused on these pastels tones. In this photo, the colors of the walls perfectly match the color of the couple’s clothes. It was, of course, a deliberate choice on my part. We walked all over the island and when I saw this house I got the vision. I saw this cinematic and dreamlike scene in my head so I spontaneously guided them to get the effect of my imagination.

Composition

Rule of ThirdsLower ThirdsSymmetry

It is more in post-production that I sit down and carefully choose, straighten the lines, crop if needed so that the characters are best arranged in the entire composition of the photo. I reject those shots where composition is chaotic and unclean. I also remove unwanted elements of the frame scenery that may disturb the colors or attract too much attention, such as advertisements, inscriptions, dirty walls, electric installations.

Photographer Italy R6 70-200 mm
Ciao! I am Magda. My brand’s name is inspired by the word and feeling of ‘phantasmagoria’. My style is timeless with a mix of photojournalistic and editorial approach. I love all things adventure. Road trips by own camper, adventurous, intimate weddings, horse riding, Mediterranean lifestyle, and multi day mountain hikes. 5 years ago I ventured with my kids to start a new life in a new country, new culture, and first time as a full-time photographer specializing in couples, weddings, and elopements. Since then I have been calling Tuscany our home and traveling worldwide to create magic. I learned photography myself through countless pitfalls. Now I share my knowledge so that you do not have to repeat my mistakes.
