Night Photography – Ghosting Through Rome

This is a photo that I took in Rome, Italy. When in Rome, one of the popular sights to see is the Roman Colosseum. After spending the day checking out the ruins and enjoying some gelato, I decided to head over to the Colosseum for some night shots. When I arrived, I started to take the typical Colosseum photos that most people have in their portfolio. The grand structure is lit up at night by spotlights that illuminate the ancient arches. After a few minutes of shooting, a number of police cars and people with safety vests arrived in front of the Colosseum. They started to block off the roads and clear a path, for what I had no idea. Moments later a huge swarm of marathon runners came rushing down the street in a steady flow of foot traffic. Apparently, I was smack dab in the middle of a marathon. This is what I love about photography, the element of surprise! You never know when a unique photo opportunity will present itself. I used a long exposure to capture this shot, which created a really interesting ghosting effect with the steady stream of runners racing by! View – High-Quality Version

Post Processing

Post Processing “Ghosting Through Rome” – I took three bracketed shots EV (-3, 0, +3) and combined them in Lightroom to create an HDR image. Then I used Lightroom on a single exposure (EV, 0) to create a couple of different creative versions. Finally, I mixed all my “versions” into Photoshop to get the final image! I created a FREE Lightroom Preset for night photography! Free Lightroom Preset
