free scenic wallpapers for your cool computer desktop

Well, I don't like speak about me but maybe you are curious and you want to know who I am and what I do in my life.

My name is Gianpaolo Bottin, I am 36 years old and I am single. I live in Turin, Italy, where I work as software engineer, I develop software using Visual C++. I develop mainly software for industrial automation, monitoring and quality control. Photography is my favorite hobby. When I have some free time I like to travel and take pictures of everything I find interesting, especially natural landscapes. Another hobby of mine is cinema, I like science fiction and action movies. I have also a DVD player and a Dolby Digital home theater system so I can enjoy movies in the best way. 

Some tech notes about the photos: older ones was taken with Pentax K1000 (my first reflex  camera), Chinon CE4 or Ricoh XR-X, but majority of the photos (and almost all macros) are taken with a Pentax LX and new ones will be taken with my new Pentax MZ-3. The lenses I own are: 20 F4,28 F2.8,35 F2.8,50 F1.7,50 F2.8 macro, 135 F3.5, 200 F4, 28-70 F4 AF, all made by Pentax; recently I have bought also 105 F2.8 macro AF and 70-300 F4-5.6 AF both by Sigma. I don't like zooms because of their low quality, but I must admit that the two zoom I have bought are rather good. Most pictures are taken with wide angle lenses and with the 50mm. For macrophotography I use a bellows with a dedicated lens (a Pentax 100mm bellows), two or three flashes and a special viewfinder for my Pentax LX.

All photos are slides from which I have got a photo cd, then I have converted them in jpeg using Corel Photo Paint.

I have bought a Nikon Coolscan III film scanner, so new photos will be a mix from PhotoCd and scanned images.
