In these days I have had the lucky opportunity to photograph the Trevi’s Fountain without all those thousands of tourists who are perennially around the square

For those who have never been here, to give you an idea of the amount of people just think that as soon as you enter the fountain square you must start making your way through the crowd… here every semi-panoramic photo of the fountain is impossible throughout all the day. Only in the very early morning is there any chance of succeeding and it is not even so obvious

In these days without tourists in Rome everything is easier and in the early morning the square is completely deserted, only the wonderful sound of water is heard and the magical atmosphere of the fountain attracts to you

Nevertheless to give an image of the Trevi’s Fountain that enhances the light of the sky I chose a vertical shot also to give greater dynamism to the scene, I took many photos here also horizontally but in my opinion this view includes many essential elements of the fountain having something different from the classic postcards of Trevi


I blended all the exposure using TTS Pro and with the use of luminosity masks I lightened the sky and shadows. I added details selectively excluding the water of the fountain and the sky clouds

I increased the color vibrance with the filter inside my free panel here and I give a warm look in the highlights and shadows using a warm filter. With the help of dodge and burn I pushed up the light in the main spots of the shot

I correct the perspective of the shot that had a strong wide angle perspective and as final touch, I added a small dark vignette around the photo to give more attention to the viewer to the fountain and the sky lights

I really hope you will find this usefull! I like to ear this from you!

Giuseppe Sapori - Trevi


The famous Trevi fountain with a vertical shot, I took this photo on a Saturday afternoon while I was around the city. The Trevi fountain is one of the most visited places in the city of Rome, even during the day just approaching this fountain is very difficult, the entire fountain is surrounded by thousands of tourists every day that make photos and selfie at all

It is a beautiful fountain, which catches you when you are in front of it, I recommend it to everyone to see it but to enjoy the full visit it is better to go here early in the morning or at night



Image obtained by a bracketed shot taken handheld, I blended the images using luminosity masks and I applied details and orton effect using TTS Fast Panel

I increased contrast using midtones and darks, I decreased the yellow color cast on the fountain using hue/saturation, With dodge and burn I made some adjustments on the fountain and on the water, as final touch I applied a little vignette to emphatize the central point

I hope you will find this informations usefull, if you have any tips or question about it write to me. I’m always happy to hear it on you!
