The Last Light

Giuseppe Sapori - The last light

The beach of Maiori during sunset, I took this picture in the few moments of light available before the sundown, it was beginning to be dark when I found a small pier looking out to sea, there was only a fisherman just ahead. I placed a few meters before him shooting towards the Gulf of Amalfi, the sea was very much moved and several times I had to clean the lens from a few sketches that even at a distance came on my lens.

However not being the owner of an ND filter I took this photo only using a slower shutter speed and a good exposure compensation, I have to say that I am very satisfied of the final results but all the credits go to the sunset cause I was helped by the little lights remainings which allowed me the fog effect in the water. With Photoshop I tried to step up the contrasts, the details on the rocks and further blur to the water, specially in the central part of the image

Sea outpost

Giuseppe Sapori - Sea outpost

What you see is the Norman tower of Maiori, once of the ancient outpost of the place, a  tower of excellence to scan the sea in an attempt to defend itself from invasion of the Saracens. Today the tower is a luxury restaurant with magnificent views of the Gulf of Campania and the Amalfi coast. I took this picture from the road and a free hand since the road was very narrow, and the stand I could not have a good view of the cliff, since you had to lean a little. In addition the car running faster on my left making everything much more difficult 🙂

However, it is a freehand picture made with 3 exposures, entirely worked with Luminance Masks, my actions and Photoshop Lab Coloring, for all of this you can find more in the tutorial section

Giuseppe Sapori - Coastal Sunset 2

If you liked my previous post, surely you appreciate this too, because this is the same location but taken from a closer position… and with less light course 🙂

After taking all the pictures on the cliff for the view from the top (I was precisely halfway between Amalfi and Atrani) I started to descend the cliff to direct me back to Amalfi to catch the last but to go home. A notice: My stay was in Maiori, a town not far from there, because Amalfi city is really very expensive

Anyway this is the view that welcomes the entrance of the city. I stopped on this place to take some shoots here, it was starting to get dark, the lights of the village were on and I did not want to miss a lighted shooting Amalfi in a late blue hour with citylights
