My first ( and last? ) drone.

Ok, now I have a drone. I’ll stop with “traditional” photography??

Not at all! I think this is a very good tool to have a different point of view πŸ™‚ and, as you know, in photography is very important change the way we are shooting.

Now I’ll be in search of a good landscape to shot from the sky. This is my first video: the countryside of the city of Lucca, we are in the famous so-called “wine and oil road” in Tuscany.


Great camera means Great photo?

You don’t need a great camera to take a great photo as you don’t need a big paintbrush to color a big painting. I have a question:Β “how was the giant Goliath killed?”, with a big cannon? No, with a little rock. Last sunday I took the following pictures with a little compact camera, a Sony RX100M3, not with a Nikon D5 or aΒ Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

I had a big help: the morning lights! πŸ™‚ But I had to wake very early in the morning..and the “good light” last few minutes… In the evening I edited the RAW files them with Lightroom.

“Take the rose when it’s time, that the time, you know, flying and the same flower that blooms today, tomorrow will wither” ( Carpe Diem, italian poet Orazio)

Landscape in the morning

..still no good news :-)Β 

Some yers ago I told my friend :”tomorrow we’ll wake up at 6:00 o’clock to take some landscape photos”… and he answered: ” but in the early morning there is the fog, we can sleep until 7:00..”  and my prompt replay: ” what!? Fog???? Ok, wake up at 5:00!!!”. And below my picture during that foggy day in the morning….thank you, my friend! πŸ™‚

How I did it: the right moment.

Olive trees at sunset

A classic scene that we can find in the area called “The Road of wine and oil” on the hills of the city of Lucca ( Tuscany – Italy ). What makes this photo interesting is definitely the beautiful light of the sunset along with the autumn season ( the first for the light and the second for colors). To take good pictures there are only two ways: either you go to take pictures at sunrise or at sunset…. that is to say: at the right moment. Β …ehm.. I like to sleep! πŸ™‚

A good task is to find exceptions… taking photos during the other hours of a day πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
