What you'll do

Experiment with night photography in some of Milan's most iconic locations. We'll begin around sunset, and our first stop features a beautiful view of the city and the mountains on the horizon. As the blue hour approaches, we will play with long exposures, taking pictures of the city lights. When the night becomes truly dark, we'll focus on the moon as well as some of Milan's skyline. We'll take pictures of illuminated skyscrapers, silent parks, brightly-lit subways, and views overlooking the city. Finally, in very clear nights, we'll find a place where we can take photographs of the stars despite being close to a big city.

The perfect course to begin with your SLR camera and to discover Milano!
Other things to note
Bring a jacket or sweater and wear comfortable shoes. The specific itinerary may be modified according to weather conditions or different phases of the moon.

I'm a passionate landscape photographer. I especially like taking night photos because it's relaxing, and the camera can see even more than our eyes. Besides photography, I work as a researcher in optics, imaging, and photonics. I love to travel whenever I can.

Esperienza utilissima! Lei é molto competente; é specializzata nella fotografia in notturna, sì, ma ha ampie conoscenze anche in tutte le altre tematiche - specie nel campo del ritratto paesaggistico - e, soprattutto, si é mostrata fin da subito disponibile e gentile nel colmare delle mie lacune di carattere sia teorico che pratico. Davvero consigliato!!!

Elisa is extremely friendly and I very much enjoyed taking photos with her. I didn't bring a tripod with me (travelling internationally), and she was kind enough to lend me one for taking amazing night photographs. Thank you Elisa!

This was so enjoyable and Elisa was a great host. She explained everything so well and the pictures we took are some of my favourites from my trip!

Elisa was AMAZING!! (note: amazing was capitalized for a reason!!) She is an absolute professional who knows her stuff. Not only does she know her stuff, but she relays it in a riveting and fun manner. Last but not least - she stayed with us for 45 minutes above and beyond the allotted/agreed time: I have already recommended her to my friends in Munich and highly suggest that any of you considering to book her do so!!

L'esperienza è stata molto divertente, Elisa si è dimostrata una persona preparata e generosa nel condividere con me alcuni consigli per migliorare la tecnica fotografica. A mio parere, quello che si paga non rispecchia l'effettivo valore (che è superiore). La consiglio! PS Grazie di tutto Elisa!
