About - João Burini

     The majority of images displayed here were taken southeastern atlantic rainforest areas, it's easily my favorite and more accessible biome to be in, also considered a biodiversiy hotspot.
     Despite having a big macrophotography emphasis, to this day I still do not own a true macro lens, Instead I'm using alternative methods such as lens reversal, achromat filters and extension tubes, I'm constantly experimenting new techniques, specially when it comes to lighting.
     Born in Brazil, nature has always been a big interest since I was a kid, and the curiosity in taking photos came along as a teenager with an old webcam with a close focus that allowed me to shoot backyard bugs, since then the nature photography interest only grew. Later I graduated as a biologist, which was also favorable to photography giving more nature knowledge and specially experience/opportunities to be out in the field.
