The Flow

The Flow

Tags : 

I took this photo in the natural oasis near the river Bussento, all the valley around the river is a dense bush downhill. I struggled not a little downhill to reach this location where a series of small waterfalls are explained in the river, the way is very impervious but the downhill, and especially the uphill ūüôā surely worth it!

I created this image with my nd1000 filter for about 60 second time long exposure, I used 7-shot bracketing function to have a full range of exposure, underexposed shots were very useful to save the leaves moved by the wind

 

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I take the two best exposures and I blended them using luminosity masks. With dodge and burn I recover some underexposed spot in the frame and I fixed lights around the water flow. I incresed the yellow colors of the leafs using my filter autumn colors, you can find it inside TTS Fast Panel free downloadable here

With a warm filter I added more yellows to the highlights and more glow adding a slight orton effect. I increased the highlights coming to the top using luminosity masks applied to lights and always using lm, I increased darks subtracting lights to avoid to overexpose the other lights in the frame

I really hope you will find this usefull. I always love to hear that from you!

Giuseppe Sapori - Coloured Fantasy

Cilento¬†is a beautiful place in the south of¬†Salerno, every year, during the summer holidays, I decided to spend a few days around here to visit some my parents, and to take some pictures. The view of the mountains to the sea is the feature of this place, this is¬† Read more...among one of the most famous Cilento’s location to take panoramas landscape. To make this picture, I went in a place not far from the house of my parents called¬†Villammare. Before entering the village there is a small street where you can admire the landscape in all its splendor and a little later, the stairs that lead down to the beach, where at a certain hour of sunset is no longer anyone, ¬†only some fishermans. This was taken from the steps taking all¬†exposures¬†by hand (there was no room on the stairs to keep the tripod) ūüėÄ

HDR Before/After – The Beginnings

Tags : 

 

As I wrote in my previous post The Beginnings The house on the rocks of Villammare for me represents a starting point for the HDR, but this time than the first time i photographed this place, the technique used was different, so I tried the three exposures taken at sunset through the method of 32-bit HDR. The street running through the house on the rocks is a simple road that leads from the main one this place so it is not very busy with people in cars, I still had to wait about ten minutes that the sun is filtering through the clouds to get the ‘effect achieved.

Giuseppe Sapori - The descent

First pictures of my week spent in the Cilento and in the Policastro’s Gulf. I took this HDR in Villammare, a village a few miles from Sapri,¬†from a cove with descent to the sea on the rocks. Every day, from here you can admire a beautiful sunset, with ever changing colors and beautyful clouds. This will be the first of a long series of posts with pictures in the area. See you soon, stay tuned guys.
