Get a friend to drive so that you don't end up in the ditch, craning to get a better view of Monte Amiata, my favourite mountain, or of the towers of Siena in the distance. You need a large choice of shots to play with when you get home to your computer. Once home you can't re-shoot, you have to work with the material you've already collected. Now, after downloading the images, backing them up on DVD or an external hard drive, you have hours of fun ahead of you, selecting the images to work with and then juxtaposing them perfectly and seamlessly to create the ultimate illusion, that looks effortless. Just as well that it is more of a joy than a punishment to potter along the winding roads between such jewels as Pienza and Montepulciano, |San Quirico d'Orcia and Montalcino, you don't even need the excuse of photography. Well, these days it is a viable alternative, one much used in the professional photography world, but if you're going to do it well, there is still a lot of work involved. The beauty of digital is that you don't have film costs to worry about. Take a lot of permutations of the same shot: different depths of field, different points of focus, different angles, different light situations, and bracket, bracket, bracket your exposures. Only you have the satisfaction of knowing how much work went into creating the perfect photograph of Poppies in Tuscany. A detailed map will help you explore the strada bianca (dirt roads), but they are not always completely accurate, so be prepared to head off into the unknown and turn back at a dead end - all part of the adventure.It can be hard work locating the perfect field of poppies in front of the perfect view of a Tuscan town.

You've located your shots of your background town and your foreground poppies. A flat field of poppies stuck onto a hill shaped foreground is just going to look like a collage. Return to the same place at a different time of day to get a different angle of sunlight on your poppies. So no escape from the driving around Tuscany searching for the perfect shot then. You think it might just be easier to slap in a dimmable led filament bulb Manufacturers field of poppies on your computer at home later. The magic of Tuscany is the unexpected view, a hidden crumbling brick farmhouse with cypress trees, a perfect field of poppies. This time you are going to need to find two shots: one of the view of your chosen town in Tuscany, ideally with a nicely defined hill curving gently in the foreground, which will be filled with poppies digitally later; the other the poppy field itself in a similar light to your first picture and on a similarly contoured hill or field.
