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

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

Amalfi coast

Giuseppe Sapori - Amalfi

 

This is the famous Amalfi coast, framed on the way to Amalfi, definitely my favorite shot in this part of south Italy. I took this picture after taking some shots at the port, as in my latest post. I started to go up on the Amalfi coast  by walk (which in the meantime was swarming with cars whizzing fast), to reach a first top where you could admire the beautiful Amalfi Coast in all its glory. I have been in this spot for about 20 minutes taking photos during different times of the Amalfi coast seascape during the golden hour.

When I go home I select the exposures taken in the first part of my take because they had a shade of yellow and the most characteristic colors than the other.  In Photoshop I used  my actions Luminosity Masks to do manual blend, my other actions to add, details, sharpen, orton effect and lab color.

I took this sunset in the pacific island of Ios, during my stay on the island some people indicated me this place as the best to take pictures at sunset. This is a local front-terraced sunset, cocktail bar where you can spend a few hours during the day also in the pool. Single shot with suspended man in the air  and new moon in the background 🙂

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) 😀

Queen of Rocks pt. 2

Giuseppe Sapori - Queen of Rocks 2

As I said in my previous post Queen of Rocks Capri is a small, beautiful and very exclusive island of the coast of Campania, I have been in neighboring areas several times but I’d never been before on this island. The story has it that every time I’m around and I want to make a daily trip to Capri the day that I decided to leave it rain so much! This summer I was able to make me a very hardly day on the island and of course it was raining  😀 … Oh well, what you see in the picture is the overcast sky that alternated with intervals of the day, but the subject is certainly the most important thing the Faraglioni  of  Capri are famouses all over the world thanks to the magnificent historical overview offered by the gardens of Augustus.

Giuseppe Sapori - Queen of Rocks

One of the most beautiful islands in the world, certainly is Capri, just the queen of the rocks. I had never been to Capri before this year and I was pleasantly impressed by the magnificent views that can be admired from the island, although it must be said that it is a very small island and also very exclusive. I certainly don’t have met a wonderful day during my excursion to Capri, but surely the clouds and the overcats sky helped me create great shots even in hours not really close at sunset.

The Sorrento Peninsula in all its beauty, to admire it in it’s best you have to stay long the coast. The cities in this area offer so much beautiful places to see but the true visual spectacle can be found only along the cliff. Finding the location for this photo has not been easy at all, in fact I had access to a beautiful hotel in which I will not name, who had a fantastic terrace across the reef and where it was easy to take pictures in complete comfort.
