Nightscape Photography “Magical Lights of Positano”
Nightscape Photography “Magical Lights of Positano” – If Positano, Italy isn’t on your travel bucket list yet, you should pencil it in immediately! This magical coastal town is known as the jewel of the Amalfi Coast and it isn’t hard to see why! The unique architecture and rocky landscape make this place a photographer’s dreamland with beautiful photo opportunities around every corner. The first day that I arrived in Positano, I instantly started scouting shooting locations. I knew that I wanted to capture a shot from above the Santa Maria Assunta church with the rows of Italian villas behind it. I noticed that one of the fancy restaurants along the ridge had a great view of everything that I wanted to capture. I ended up booking a table at sunset so that I would be in a prime position to get the shot. After a plate of delicious Italian spaghetti and a glass of red wine, it was finally blue hour. I pulled out my gear and set up my tripod along the balcony and started snapping away. The magical lights of Positano are absolutely mesmerizing and capturing them that night is something that I won’t soon forget. Check out the larger version of this photo here or on Google Plus!
