Night Photography and Summer.

Summer has arrived, and is in its maximum, then cannot think a better period of the year for night photography. Can't wait to sit down on the grass, under the stars, in the silence of the darkness, place my tripod, connect my trigger, light up my cigar and start to shoot taking some stunning images of the Night Sky.

Night at the Mittens This was one of my first attempts but since then I've studied, literally a lot, in order to improve my technique and refined my methods.

Night at the Mittens

This was one of my first attempts but since then I've studied, literally a lot, in order to improve my technique and refined my methods.

Do you think it is a complex and difficult task? Yes, it is, indeed it is, but I think it is a really relaxing task too, if you know how to face it. So here's my idea, I will write a short and easy "on the field guide" about how to obtain great night shots, from camera settings to post production.

So, follow me, and stay tuned, soon I will announce it here and you can download it to read on your smartphone or tablet.

 

A new platform and a new life

So I decided to ditch WordPress, virtual servers, plugins, CDN ad all the techie jargon I was used (but bored) and switch to a ready made service.

I opted for Squarespace.

I've just finished to move all my pages, photos and posts to the new service, and in some time I will make them available.

I'm really sorry if some weird tags and codes will appear in my old blog posts but they are uninfluent on the contents, in the same time I'm really excited for the new platform and for the possibilities it will offer.

At first glance it looks awesome, unchaining me from the technincal management and allowing me to dedicate only to the contents. 

What do you think of my new page, portfolio and blog?

All comments and suggestion are more than welcome!

Five photography podcasts you need to listen to

Historically photography has been one of those industries where shooters kept their work secret... however, thanks to the internet, the rise of collaboration and our obsession with what goes on behind the scenes, the tide has changed and individuals are now more excited about sharing their creative process. 📷: Tara Moore
