Fireflies dot the darkness during a 30-second digital exposure made in a hollow along an old farm road at Castle de Gargonza in Tuscany. Blackmer had attempted photographing fireflies with film for years, without much success. Working digitally, he was able to test the exposure and review the metadata in advance, then shoot with confidence the following evening at dusk.
