Every time I go to Milan I always take photos in the new area of Porta Nuova it’s a brand new quarter, full of skyscrapers and modern facilities, this area is one of my favorite photographic locations in Milan

Among the various spots that I have had the opportunity to photograph there is also this that you see in the picture, an installation with many trumpets that leads the parking with the upper side, by speaking in one of this trumpets the voice and the sound propagate along the whole length and it is possible to communicate between one floor and the other

This is a shot that I have done at other times but this time I decided to photograph directly from the parking lot to resume the entire length of the installation and take advantage of all the lights

 

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I take exposures for this, I blended the shots using TTS PRO to decrease the parking lights. I increased details and using dodge and burn I fixed the lights too much overexposed

I added a small glow effect in the picture using a very soft orton effect and I increased blue luminosity to make better visible the sky. My latest touch was to add a small vignette to intensify the central part of the frame

You can find all this effect in my brand new panel TTS PRO, one click to lauch all this effect and to create beautiful images

 

I hope you will find this informations usefull. I Love to ear this from you!

The Black Diamond

I take this photo during the days I spent in Copenhagen, this is the famous black diamond structure adjacent to the royal library

The building takes the name of black diamond because of the color of the exterior windows that are made of black granite of Zimbawe, otherwise the interior of the atrium is completely white and in the middle of the building, a huge 8-storey atrium acts as entrance and skylight for the whole building, it is a beautiful modern building ideal for taking interiors shot

I took several pictures both in the background and in the various plans, which will be the source of my upcoming publications 🙂

 

WORKFLOW EXPLANATION

I made a fast blend between the darker and brighter exposure, saving the sky and recovering the highlights at the window, same highlights that I pushed up around the area of main light. with clone stamp tool I removed some ghost of people in the picture and with TTS Fast Panel I launched all the effect I used to edit this picture

I increased details, sharpen and vividness of colors, with dodge and burn I reduce lights around the staircase and on the top window, with orton effect I increased the glow effect of light, setting it with an opacity of 10%. I increased contrast using luminosity masks applied to curves tool. I added a slightly yellow color using a warm filter, as final touch I added a small vignette.

As always I hope you will find this usefull. I always love to ear that from you!
