BEHIND THE SHOT

La Gusela - Passo Giau

DOLOMITES NATURAL PARK

I shot these three images during a One-2-One Workshop with one of my students. This location is absolutely stunning with an infinite photographic potential. In the early summer season many rhododendrons grow in the area of Passo Giau, and technically speaking, frame the icon peak “La Gusela” with these colorful flowers on the foreground is always a great choice. This image presented a few technical challenges, the most important is the very high dynamic range of the scene, so multiple-exposures are needed. In this case I used luminosity masks to blend three different exposures to achieve a look as natural as possible.”

Before any sunset or sunrise landscape photography session, location scouting is one of the most important things which a good photographer needs to plan meticulously to stand in the right place when the golden lights pop up.

Generally, most of us tend to avoid shooting in the midday sun. The light is harsh and contrast is very high. This means that shadows get very dark, even black, and highlights can sometimes wash out. The lighting on the land looks very flat and it is terribly unattractive, BUT…sometimes there are some exciting photo opportunities to be had in bright lighting conditions that are different than what’s found at any other time of day.

Here one of my secret tips that I want to share with you: KEEP AN EYE ON THE CLOUDS. When the clouds and the sun play together in a beautiful way, they can create unpredictable contrasts on the land. In this case the shadows played a role in the graphic design of the compositions. Even though in the middle of the day with the sun pretty much over my head, I think that this scene is quite interesting with a strong feel and mood.

An intriguing view towards the Cinque Torri while the sun was setting. I love these kind of scenes, a little of haze, the strong side lights and extreme high contrasts on the rocks. It reminds me the dark atmospheres in the third episode of the LOTR “The Return of the King”, where Frodo, Sam and Gollum were trying to get to Mordor, exhausted and starved, through the dreary landscape full of barren trees.

“Come Hobbitses, very close now. Very close to Mordor. No safe places here. Hurry.”
