I have a trip coming up from May 29 to June 9 in Tuscany and I am hoping some members can help me with places of interest and times of day to shoot. I will be staying in Lucca through the 5th, then Florence for the remainder. Day trips will be had... definitely to Pisa and??? I am wanting to go out there with a little knowledge as to what to shoot when so I do not "waste" time learning I should have come at a different time. Im definitely not opposed to revisiting locations, I would just prefer to know that early morning would be better than evening wherever I'm at. Also, which filters would be nice to have on the trip? I've been flirting with the idea of getting a ND filter, but am on the fence. I typically just use what I've got, which is the standard UV and a CP. What kind of exposure times would one use in the Duomo and other locations? Additionally, I think I read somewhere that tripods can be a tricky thing to have in Florence? Is this true, that you are not supposed to use them in the city?!?! I also like to not only see the main sites, but do some different/entertaining things off the beaten path. I will be with friends for my stay in Lucca and traveling alone from the 5th on. I am fairly outgoing and game to try just about anything. Any insight and experiences will be very welcome... thank you in advance!
