Sardinia: A magical retreat for every photographer

Angela RavaioliJun 3, 20240
The first time they offered me a trip to Sardinia, I was not immediately enthusiastic, I would have preferred an exotic destination overseas to meet different populations with different customs and traditions and to be able to photograph them.

Testing the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II in Iceland

Lisa Michele BurnsJun 4, 20181
