One of the highlights of traveling through Tuscany is the opportunity to explore and photograph the towns along the way. Perugia is one of the lesser visited towns in Tuscany, typically passed over by tourists and photographers. I found my way to Perugia because I wanted the unique experience of staying in a former castle and booked two nights at Castello di Monterone.

Tuscany has long been viewed as one of the most popular destinations for landscape photographers. During the late spring and early summer travel photographers flock to this area to explore the winding roads and beautiful views. I had put off this trip for several years in lieu of other destinations including Iceland and Canada. Finally I made my way through the region of Tuscany to fully explore the landscape photography opportunities. My opinion is clear - Tuscany is worth it in every way. These pictures from Tuscany are a part of my Italy Art Gallery presentation which is also viewed on my regular portfolio website. I rank Tuscany in my Top 5 destinations for photographers, and a definitive must add to every bucket list.

Photographing nature and flowers can be extremely rewarding yet challenging for photographers of all levels. The number one thing to remember with shooting all formats and styles of photography is to remember there is no wrong way to do it. Photography is an art - within that art lies composition. Each photographer has their own style and creative touches - but where we can go wrong is to constantly focus our photography on outside influences opposed to your own style. Recently in Italy I explored several sunflower fields to practice my nature photography - coming away with two examples of composing sunflowers. Both of these photographs are a part of my Italy Art Gallery presentation featured on my portfolio website. This is not a vote to compare which photo is better, rather to explore two different styles I used to photograph these sunflowers.
