Shoot HDRs!!! After spending most of the day wandering around the old city and doing interesting (but admittedly touristy) stuff, I found my way up the Palatine Hill and into the wonderful Farnese Gardens. It had been cloudy all day, and rained intermittently (the worst of it was while I was eating lunch inside – I didn’t even realize how lucky I got). The rain was annoying but provided phenomenally excellent lighting conditions for some on-the-go portraits of my friends here (I had only brought my 85mm lens with me so I was pretty limited in what I could shoot). Anyways, at the gardens I found some lovely flowers after the rain, pulled out my handy T-pod, and shot some brackets. Here’s my favorite.
