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!

Giuseppe Sapori - Do not Lean


Vertical version of my previous post “Infinity Meteora”. The place where I took this photo is a rocky promontory that extends downstream from where it can be admired one of the best views of the meteors, needless to say that all around this promontory there are only cliffs and escarpments  but 360 degrees around it viewer a magnificent view.

To shooting this picture I reach the place in late afternoon, close the blue hour. Taken 5 shots and edited with luminance masks discarding the last overexposed one (useless, too bright). During the Photoshop work I brought the color to yellow rather than the blue of the blue hour, I made several comparisons and I think that this place has an impact much nicer using golden shades. I worked a lot on light shadows and contrasts, not many details as I have tried to increase mostly the glow effect of the picture.
