Summer light: 4:00 – 8 p.m.
Winter light: 3:00 – 7 p.m.
Let the glow of the city fill your lens as the sun’s exit transforms the sky. The evening light grows into its own entity scattered throughout the atmosphere. As the sun goes down and the pastel-colored clouds transform into shades of blue, violet, orange and pink, your guide will help you capture the soft glow that esconses the monuments. Participants will find themselves capturing the beauty of Roman architecture during the rare hours of the evening where light finds itself as its own individual amongst the world, and the sky becomes a painterly backdrop.
This workshop focuses on monuments, architecture and urban landscape. However, if you wish to combine this with the Street Photography workshop, let us know, and we will provide you with the customized hours and price.
