Breaking all Illusions by ArpanDas

I am working on a huge Panorama but my macbook is not enough for it. Photoshop is crashing all the time. So I tried a single exposure from it. Hope you will like it. This is so far my favourite place to shoot photography as we have everything with this composition. Moon, milkyway, sunset whatever you want

The Wizard of Wonderland by ArpanDas

The man standing is not me, its my friend Alessandro.

Again tried to create the atmosphere like Lord of the rings. Taken near Matese Lake in Italy. Single exposure

I should mention the addition of human element to my composition is always inspired from the greatest and one and only Max Rive.

High Hopes by ArpanDas

The beast is back. Yes after a long time my D810 finally back in action. Thanks a lot to great photographer Enrice Fossatti who suggested me what to do when I left all the hope after my D810 went inside a lake.

This shot was taken at Antignano near Livorno. It is a wonderful place for seascape as it has some unique structure like Spain. We took some great milkyway shots also here which I will upload later. Enjoy 🙂

The heart of Tuscany by ArpanDas

View of Florence from the top of Duomo

Uploading a cityscape after a long time. I got back my D810 after almost 2 and half months. It decided to take a cold bath one night in lake Fusine and jumped inside it while shooting the night sky. I left all hope and for a moment I thought this is the time to say good bye to photography. But many people suggested to dry it and I dried it almost for 2 weeks and then sent it to Nikon but Nikon rejected to clean the sensor and finally the service centre in Turino did it and it is working perfectly fine. I climbed the Duomo to test if everything is working fine. Hope it will work fine 🙂

Darkland by ArpanDas

This was one of the most beautiful sunset I have ever witnessed in my life and luckily that day there was not enough tourist. My job was to capture the moonshine but I reached the place a little bit early as I live nearby and the sunset was really crazy. This shot was taken exactly when the sun was in the horizon and the light was glowing over the city with the rising moon. P.S I have not blended the moon from any other image. I have made a short video how I got this moon. If you want check the youtube link

Land of Cosmos by ArpanDas

Read the description please.

I know first thing people will think about is how it is possible to get the milkyway when there is such a bright moon. Well my expression was exactly similar when I shot this. This was taken at a single time (nothing has been taken separately Even we did not know there is a milky way. When we were shooting another composition with the moon we saw the moon with milky way in raw file (it was hardly visible with naked eyes). After watching this it immediately reminds me the great capture of Michael Shainblum who captured the moon with the milky way. Well still someone may think that I am making a nice story, so here is the link for one of the raw file(I hope it works, if not u can ask me).


Technical details: For this particular shot I used the 16-35 canon lens just because of the monstar. The lens is great for monstar. This is a panorama of 12 images and one exposure for the moon. For the monstar I used aperture 9 and for the rest of the image aperture 2.8. The transition in color was real (no color gradient has been added). There is a city behind the field in the left. So a huge light pollution comes from it. I tried some foreground elements but nothing was interesting except this anti-aircraft gun placed during the world war. I quite like the way it was pointing towards the milkyway. The glow on the gun is from the moon. It was so bright that an artificial light source was not needed to light the foreground.

A great thanks to my friend Attilio Di Giangiacomo who asked me to join him for a night photography and he showed me this great location. Not only that I didn’t have my camera as it has been sent to the service centre. So he also allows me to use his camera for this shot.
