I don’t like excessive planning. While travelling, more often than not I prefer to let things run their own course and see where they take me. But that approach doesn’t work so well with photography. Getting good photos requires some preparation, so ever since I got more serious about the images I take, location research has become a part of my routine trip planning. I always try to identify the best places beforehand, imagine how the light is going to be at different times of the day, see if there is anything I should be particularly aware of. This information is not always easy to find, making such preparations quite time-consuming. And Prior to going to Italy I tried looking for some photography tips for shooting Milan and couldn’t find anything comprehensive. So in this article I will sum up what I could find together with my own personal experience on location and provide some photography tips for Milan. Hopefully, this will make somebody’s life a little easier.
