Panorama Rocchetta Mattei by Antonio Biagiotti

I’ve always been attracted to long exposures. I wanted the massive profile of the Castle to stand out against an ethereal sky. To find the right light I had to go to the place many times, finally one morning the conditions were appropriate. This picture was taken around 7:30 in the morning but I was there from 6:45 am when it was still dark. I placed the large format camera on the tripod and inserted the chassis with 4×5 inch film. After doing the framing and focusing, I mounted two ND filters that allowed me to get an exposure of 8 minutes to get the image of my visualization.
