Giuseppe Sapori - Lights of Darkness

 

Picture taken on my last day of stay in Bled, this is a small service house for the rent of canoes lying on the lake, that evening it was a very unique and creative lighting that was created on this with a great cloudy sky but with many glimmers of light that filtered through the clouds. I created the HDR in Photoshop, edited in Lightroom in 32 bit, then I made changes with the help of luminance mask, and did some work on the color and sharpness.

Light up the Sky

Giuseppe Sapori - Light up the sky

My first day in Ljubljana and the first thing I saw… When I came here I was very impressed. Living in Rome I am accustomed to the beauty of some church but the Cathedral of St. Nikolaja is one of the most beautiful churches I’ve seen.  It is not very big but by golden columns, the high ceilings and bright are very interesting to see. I came here almost at closing time, luckily there were not many people I made the HDR from 3 exposures merged with the method of 32 bit and edited with the use of luminance masks.

The house on the Rocks

Giuseppe Sapori - The house on the rocks

On the background the beautiful house on the rocks in Villammare, photographed on the beach during the sunset. This picture is a pure representation of a blending between a HDR made with Photomatix  and one 32-bit Lightroom made. After the blending through Photomatix, I treated the same image in 32-bit mode and I used layer masks to convey the effects of a photo inside the other. In fact, the rocks in the foreground were masked using the 32-bit effect since I do not particularly like the effect of “glamor” that Photomatix left on the rocks. In the water instead you can see the difference given by the soft colors of Photomatix. What do you think guys?

The Heart of Rome

Giuseppe Sapori - The heart of Rome

I spent very much time in front of the Coliseum to take the time to delete all the tourists that every second passed near the monument.  For this HDR I had to do a lot of work in post production using layer masks to erase all the tourists by using the exposures taken. In spite of everything I am satisfied with the final result but I could go back I would do the same photo during the first day. Indeed surely I will promise to do it  😀

Giuseppe Sapori - The wings of Destiny

The passage on the Tevere leading to Castel Sant’Angelo. This is one of the most central places of interest or Rome, I have to admit it was really hard to wait a few moments of tranquility due to the continuous passage of people on the scene. I made extensive use of layer masks to delete people as they pass by using other exposures. I have made three shots to create this HDR that I merged with other exposures.
