Wonderful shot. Great inspiration. Thank you.

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo has been taken in Rome, down on the backs of Tevere river, close to Sant'Angelo brisge
Time
The image is shot at dusk, during the so called "blue hour"
Lighting
At this time of the day artificial light merge with fading natural light, creating a beautiful mix. The sky is not dark as it is at night and shadows are not as deep
Equipment
Such images need a solid tripd, here i used my Manfrotto 190 Pro, and i also used a remote shutter release cable to avoid every movement of the camera, which is also on "live view" mode. The camera is my Nikon D800 with 24-70 f:2,8 lens
Inspiration
I love taking pictures of the best places in Rome (and in the world) during the blue hour, it makes me feel a magic mood, everything seems better. I also try to get quiet days, with little wind, to get beautiful reflections on the water. And autumn leaves were the cherry on top of the cake in this case.
Editing
I did very little post processing, just some spot removal from the sky and contrast adjustment and colour balance. At the end some sharpening, excluding the sky and water areas.
In my camera bag
My equipment varies according to the kind of images i shoot. For images like this one i carry my camera with a wide angle lens and a tripod, that's all. More often, when models are included in the shoot, i bring some speedlights with softbox and triggers to activate speedlights off camera.
Feedback
It's fairly easy capturing such scenes, it's all a matter of being on the right place at the right time, preparing in advance the composition (which is the most important part of the work) and ensuring the stability of the camera on the tripod and a perfect ertical and horizontal alignment. All settings have to ensure the maximum quality. Low ISO, 200-400. As for the aperture i go for a f:8 for the right depth of field and no or little star effect on lights. I always do bracketing for exposure: 0, -1 and +1 EV
