Drones, paragliders, and more as Fstoppers go behind the scenes in Cinque Terre, Italy


posted Saturday, December 19, 2015 at 8:10 AM EDT


As part of their Photographing the World behind-the-scenes series, Fstoppers' Lee Morris, Patrick Hall, and others travel with professional travel photographer Elia Locardi to the Cinque Terre, Italy.

In this ninth episode, which kicks off season two of the series, we get to see Lee bring out his drone to capture aerial footage of the beautiful Italian seaside. As part of their fifteen-plus hour Photographing the World: Cityscape, Astrophotography, and Advanced Post-Processing tutorial, Patrick set up a Nikon D750 on a motorized slider to capture a timelapse video of the sunset. We also get to see parts of Elia's tutorial throughout the behind-the-scenes video. They then travelled up a mountain overlooking the coast where Elia combined exposures to capture the perfectly lit and balanced image. Elia then utilizes a pano gimbal head for filming a segment on how to take and process panoramic images.

Check out the video below to see more behind-the-scenes footage and watch the Fstoppers crew go paragliding over Cinque Terre, including some great first-person aerial footage.
