Best times

Best times

This tour can start as early as 7pm or as late as 11 pm or later even. Bear in mind that Fontana di Trevi or Piazza di Spagna are very popular spots and it may be necessary to wait till well past 1am to have no or few people in the frame.

Camera Lenses

Camera Lenses

Zoom lenses with a minimum focal length of 16mm or 24mm will be very useful, while prime lenses, such as 50mm, may well come in handy for their very wide apertures. Longer lenses may be used for close-in shots.

Other Gear

Other Gear

A tripod is required for this tour along with a remote trigger, as we will be shooting nocturnal cityscapes with long exposures. Consider lightpainting as an option. Strobes may be used, though not necessary at all. Don't forget batteries and data cards. A flashlite/torch may come in handy. If you don't have one, please let us know.

Guidance

Guidance [Optional]

While not necessary, you may want to consider a full, in-depth commentary from our tour guide.

Further Information

If you wish to take full advantage of bracketing and digital blending, a tripod becomes essential. Post-production techniques will be touched upon during the tour, but bear in mind that this is a topic for a full workshop. As such, no demonstration will be provided, however plenty of information and resources are available online. Before booking this location, make sure you have read the Terms and Conditions. For a more fulfilling experience of the tour, it is recommended, though not compulsory, you should know about depth of field, how to control it, and general camera handling.
