Giuseppe Sapori - The Explorer

Until this moment I have posted only pictures of my last trip in Greece and Meteora. I make a short stop before continuing with the pictures of my last trip, posting this photo quite recently made last month at my girlfriend’s house. The photo is one single shot made not too distant from private houses, although there was a fairly light pollution with some clouds the stars were visible, nevertheless I had to do a lot of work in Photoshop to bring out the “best” from this image.

What I Do

I made this picture by just one shot, I wanted to see if I could bring out the stars and a subject at the same time, I was not much to think about exposure and the composition because in reality the main photo was another (i will post it). This inattention has cost me a lot…I counted  around 18 levels of Photoshop between before and after. Having made just one shot was a mistake, I had the problem of “dose” exposure between the portions of the pictures was too dark and the too light ones.  This time even luminance masks was not very usefull,  the whole image was treated practically only with the filters and Camera Raw.  Oh well obviously in the picture is me 🙂

I write with terrible delay and I apologize for that. There was a time that I was not physically at home for travel and other unexpected this has prevented my updated at least weekly … But let’s talk about this picture, what you see is represented the entry of Roman imperial Forum, a short walk from the Colosseum, inserted into an archaeological site of immense historical value as wonderful. I took this picture at two different moments, one at the end of the golden hour and one during the blue hour. When I edited the picture I start with the golden hour image to take the foreground  and the blue hour one to the sky to make it more impressive, in that image it is visible a few small star 😉
The rest of the editing is all luminance masks and Photoshop cc layers work

Piazza Garibaldi

Giuseppe Sapori - Piazza Garibaldi

Even this square is located in Loreto, the name Piazza Garibaldi is like the statue of our italian hero that is represented. This square is small and compact but contains within it an incredible charm of symmetry and proportions that struck me positively. To accomplish this photo I captured 5 exposures, the idea was to start from exposure darker and go off to lighten the photo with other exposures during editing using the luminance masks. This fact was the one that I made but we have to add that the day was beautiful that day, the sky was still dark though cloudless, so I took the liberty of adding a sky more dramatic and more dynamic that would give more movement to the photo, what do you think? : D

Campidoglio Square in Rome during the blue hour. I have to wait around an hour to let people leave the square. Nevertheless there was still some people passing
throw my camera, so i mask them using 2 different exposures, and create a HDR with the other three images.
