Giuseppe Sapori - Stars of Rome

Fori ImperialiĀ in Rome offers one of the most beautiful views of the Eternal City, especially if surrounded by a stars in the sky. Taking this photo was challenging more for the cold that did that day šŸ˜€Ā I made this pictureĀ from the terrace of the Campidoglio, takenĀ 7Ā exposures for shooting Fori Imperiali inĀ the lower scene. With the 7 exposuresĀ was necessary to capture theĀ best dynamic range present in the landscape and also for the lights and colors.

What about stars?

For the stars I made a single more shot at 30′ and Ā ISO 6400 that Ā then I combined with the other 7. The rest was a job editing with layer masks the starry skyĀ out with the rest of the shot. Particularly challenging was the color management, there was much in the dark blue in the photo, some of which I deleted the channel mixer to camera rawĀ desaturating part of the blue to even the horizon line with that of the starry sky

Giuseppe Sapori - Sea Step

Usually, I use a tripod to make my HDR photos. The use of a tripod for this kind of photography is important for the clarity of the images, to align themselves and to avoid blur.Ā The main reason people recommend a tripod with HDR works, is the difficulty getting the 3 images to align properly. However should be consideredĀ that is not always possible to carry on a tripod, in all these cases you can still make a HDR shooting the exposures series holding the camera in your hand.
