The Sharp Tuscany Tour – From Sunrise to Sunset

We got it, you are visiting (or planning to visit) Italy but you don’t want (or you can’t!) spend too much time in these places; to help you, let us introduce to you our fresh new one-day workshop! 

With this option, you’ll be picked up at your hotel in the near-by area that morning and you’ll be dropped off at the same place after we finished to photograph the sunset; perfect, isn’t it?

Here it is the program of this workshop:

  • During the early hours of the morning, one of our workshop leaders will pick you up at the hotel you’re staying (in the nearby area) so that we’ll be on the photo location just in time to catch the twilight and the sunrise;
  • After the sunrise photo session, we’ll continue to shot until the nice morning light will be gone; then we are going to familiarize with these beautiful tiny villages, have breakfast and talk about the photos we made that morning and how to improve for the sunset session.
  • Around midday we are going to have lunch in a beautiful restaurant to try some local dishes and have a taste of how good is the local cuisine; the lunch will be accompanied by some good wine of course!
  • In the afternoon, we’ll have our postproduction workshop, where your guide will teach you how to get the most out of the photos you made that morning with the help of Adobe Camera Raw and Adobe Photoshop; for those who are not interested, they are free to pour them a glass of wine and enjoy some wine tasting, or just taking a walk through these historical towns!
  • During late afternoon, whatever you decided to make after lunch, we are going to meet again and head over the sunset location to have another photo session!
  • After the sunset/blue hour, your guide will bring you back at your hotel.

Here it is another list about what we suggest to bring with you for this trip:

What to bring (camera equipment): 

  • Digital Camera (preferably a DSLR camera, both an APS-C and FF will be more than fine)
  • An ultrawide lens (such as the Nikon 14-24mm, Canon 16-35mm, Tamron 15-30mm, Tokina 16-28mm etc); we recommend a lens with a wide maximum aperture (like f/2.8) for night photography.
  • A standard zoom lens (like the various Nikon/Canon/Sigma 24-70mm or 24-105mm)
  • A telephoto zoom lens (like the various Nikon/Canon/Tamron/Sigma 70-200mm)
  • A super telephoto zoom lens (like the Sigma/Tamron 150-600mm); this lens is not necessary but we recommend it anyway since it allows to capture the far away details of the landscapes
  • A sturdy tripod that permits to do some long exposure photos, specially during the twilight hour
  • A set of ND filters; these are the only filters we feel to recommend, since they become useful when you need to stretch the exposure time a little bit during some difficult light conditions
  • A camera remote to avoid blurry shots

What to bring (clothing):

A few weeks before your departure, we will contact you suggesting the best clothes to bring with you basing on the weather forecasts and the current temperatures, so that you will be perfectly equipped by the time of you arrival!

Price: 250€ (+130€ for single supplement)
