Tips: taken, tested and increase your camera's ability to capture spectacular and memorable images. Try to capture the moment. It is these that we're going to try ... follow the rule of thirds, cured the frame, always try to insert a human figure in motion, but not in the foreground and possibly not posing particular ... .this will give dynamism to the image and will make right proportions in the photographs of landscapes.

Romano and Nives, exemplary couple

Ample space has been given by all the media in the amazing feat of Romano Benet e Nives MeroiThat reaching the summit of Annapurna I 11 last May, they led to the ascent after all the 14 "8000". The company, already significant in itself, is to be considered as exceptional because the climbs were carried out in all alpine style, without oxygen and especially in pairs, one pair which is at the same time the expression of physical and moral strength and example of a great love.

It is a source of pride for the Club 4000 count Romano and Nives among its honorary members, not only for the scope of their exploits, but because somehow represent all those fans of high-altitude climbing mountains with their means, more or not limited to an inner urge that perhaps can not even be defined; and they do it without emphasis, with humility, knowing already that newspapers will talk about them only in case of a tragic accident.

Thanks, Nives and Romano, for what they represent and for the example you set for all pairs of mountain lovers.
