Giuseppe Sapori - Moonwalk

Night shot taken in the valley of Campo Imperatore under the peaks of the Grand Sasso mountain. I realized this image in the following hours to that of my previous post. Unfortunately where I was previously, the mountains close me a full view of the milky way and clouds dirtied a little too much the landscape, I had to leave the beautiful location where I was standing near the lake and the Corno Grande, to follow the milky way to make it fully visible in a lower part of the mountain.

When I arrived at this place,  the moon was still high, so I waited for the sunset of the moon to see the most of all the milky way show. I create this image by two main shots, a exposure taken to the sky and a second for the foreground. I combined the two shots with the “Photomerge” funcion in Photoshop. For the sky shot I used an exposure time of 30 seconds and high ISO value. For the foreground, instead I used 4 minute long exposure time and less ISO  to bring brightness and visibility to the underlying stones.



Camera: Nikon D-800

Lens: Nikon 14-24mm f/2,8 (Shot at 14mm)

2 Exposures:

ISO: 2000 at f/2,8 for the sky

ISO 1600 at f/4 for the sky (280 sec.)

Software: Photoshop CC2015
