Giuseppe Sapori - Under the bridge

I am back from my long weekend spent in Veneto in the north of Italy. Saturday I spent the afternoon in the beautiful town of Bassano del Grappa, a place that I already knew and that last year I photographed under the stars over Christmas. The little city of Bassano del Grappa is one of my favorites in Veneto and this year, before taking a tour of the beautiful Christmas markets, I made osome shots to the famous Alpine Bridge (Ponte degli Alpini).

When I come to the bridge I found some work in progress from the non-visible part of this picture so I decided to give it an alternative shot on the river banks. It was enough delve a little bit at the bottom and climb over the fence to get somewhere in this picturesque small rocks bank that looks at the bridge, everything else did the sky and the city of Bassano 🙂

I applied the Focus Stacking  in the whole picture, putting at first to fire the rocks in the foreground, then the more distant and finally the horizon of the bell tower. If you want more information on the focus stacking I recommend you go there to read this article  on 500px ISO written by Max Foster. I applied some variation to thist utorials for every focused image I did 3 expoures Bracketing, in various moments of the evening, In this way I had the availability of more overexposed and underexposed picture for contrast, exposure and details editing.

Giuseppe Sapori - The alpine

Highly successful Startrail taken from Bassano del Grappa, the bridge from where I took the photo is the famous bridge of the Alpines (Ponte degli Alpini). This is one of the most famous bridges in Italy, built entirely of wood with a beautiful story of songs, conquests and reconstructions. The river that passes under instead is the Brenta river, which passes through many places that are located around the province of Padova and Vicenza.

Let’s talk about photograph, I realized the image of Bassano del Grappa with two series of shots, the first one to capture the exposure of the lower part of the picture, buildings and river, the second one to capture the sky and the stars. Withe the exposures taken i put togheder the two series of shot simply using the layer maks in Photoshop.
