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