A night street scene in Pisa.
Once the tourists have gone back to their hotels or are dining in nearby a restaurant, that is the time to find a suitable composition, set up the tripod and watch the comings and goings. There are two key things I would suggest you bear in mind for this type of photography. Firstly, try to be set up and take pictures before it gets completely dark, that way you get some nice deep colours in the sky. Secondly try and use a small aperture (f8 or above) to let less light in but create lovely star effects around any bright lights. Use a big aperture and you will get fuzzy blobs of light which don’t look as nice.
