Blog - Behind the Shot – Spanish Steps
In the last article I took you behind the scenes of my photo shoot at the Roman Forum. The day after that magnificent sunrise I ventured out again, this time to the Spanish Steps.
Again the sky was covered with clouds as I walked towards my desired photo location. Unlike the day before the sun didn’t break through for sunrise. But this didn’t matter. I arrived at the steps well before sunrise during blue hour and the dark blue clouds presented the perfect contrast to the warm city lights.
This is why I love the blue our for cityscape photography. I can take decent photos under a clear sky, under a cloudy sky and when I get a glowing sunrise that’s just a bonus.
Besides showing my in the field workflow in the video below, you’ll also find a quick blending tutorial at the end. There I show how I combine different exposures to remove people from the frame.
If you liked the video or have questions, just head over to my youtube channel where you can leave a comment beneath the video. I regularly check those and try to answer any questions.
