Waiting for the Night

Here is a new autumnal image from my series of photos taken in Friuli. During my tour I also included a series of local lakes that had caught my attention over my research of some spot to photograph

It often happened that I had to deal with the rain during those days but the autumn atmosphere and the mist that rose on the horizon made special any corner of nature that caught my attention

I’ts for the same reason that towards evening, I stopped on the banks of a lake to take this picture where I tried to portray the dark but at the same time colorful armosphere that could be admired in those places

At that moment there was a pretty strong rain, luckily I always carry an umbrella with me that allowed me to cover the camera and to take the shots without wetting the lens, the image is realized with a 3 shots brackets


I combined the shots using digital blending between the darkest photo and the central shot, I used the most exposed shot to lighten some areas of the photo (such as puddles) using a brush applied to luminosity masks

Using TTS PRO, I launched autumn colours to increase the red look of the autumn foliage, than I increased the blue colours applying a cold filters to the shadows.

I adjusted the contrast and brightness then started using dodge and burn over the puddles, around the tree and on the mist to stand them more to the viewer’s eye

After this I created a strong orton effect to increase the dark mood and to give a more dreamy look to the frame

I gave to the highlights a greater warmth filter in order to create a warm tone that highlights the colors of autumn, at the same time I launched color lookup filter using “Midnight” (opacity 10) to restore the same level of brightness and leave the colors of the sky unaltered

I hope you will find this usefull. I’m happy to ear this from you!

Star Tree

Giuseppe Sapori - Star Tree

The Circus Maximus needs no introduction, is an ancient Roman circus used for horse racing and other shows. Today is a giant lawn with the stands.Passing several times over there I realized that the area is quite dark, especially in the middle of the Circus Maxiumus of the lawn there is a very low brightness, so I decided to make an attempt to photograph the stars, trying to believe it is managed well. What you see the beyond the tree you can see the lights of the city and the ancient Roman ruins.


But as I took this photo?

Like all the shots I had to help myselfwith a double exposure and especially with a click using the technique Exposing to the right where it was however necessary a big job of brightness and colors.
