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.
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.
Today Nikon Italia published my reportage from my latest travel in Morocco, check it, if you can understand italian, or try to translate it! 😜
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?

So I'm back from the recent trip to one of the most incredible and hospital Countries of the Mediterranean basin, I'm back from Morocco and the Sahara desert.
is an open minded Country without restictive and enforcing god-driven laws. Moroccan poeple are friendly and hospital, full of attentions for travelers and visitors.
Our travel started from Marrakech with Merzouga dunes as destination, the Door to the Sahara.
We passed through abandoned Kasbahs, old villages, monunental landscapes and some famous movie sets; among them the set of Lawrence of Arabia and the Gladiator: unbelievable, it has been shot in Morocco.
Wherever we've been, we found faboulous things to shoot, fantastic places, and breathless views. People are more dofficult and restive to be photographed but once been introduced and after a warm handshake, they love to pose as everyone else in the world.
We entered in its Majesty, the Desert, riding a camel, a truly emotional experience, they are so tall and so serious! Once got used to the hard saddle and to the unnatural, at least for me, movements we had to learn how to react on the slopes; my back, and not only it, will hurt for days.
Anyway, we had the incredible luck to assist to a breathtaking stunning fabulous sunset. The eye of the Sahara was watching us through a rare bank of clouds. An unforgettable fire in the sky saluted our day in the sands.
Once arrived to the tent camp a marvellous surprise was waiting for us, a classic tea in the, but after it a true surprise, with the berberian dinner, we had a really tasty moroccan Caberbet Sauvignon, and where wanted, a cold beer.
I'll spare the rest of the travel tale to let the talk to my photos, I think they are better than my words. But the synthesis is that, despite what were telling the usual "well informed people", Morocco, actually is a free and safe Country to visit, full of history and art which can combine traditional and modern way of life increasing its fascination to the highest levels.

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
