Here are just a few shots from a family weekend in Rome. A couple sites had to be shot one of which was the Colosseum and the other the Spiral stairs of the Vatican Museums, designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932.
To shoot the spiral steps without any tourists in the photo and without a tripod was quite a challenge. Both pictures are composites of ten pics each that were shot with the camera firmly held to the handrail and exposing every few seconds when people on the steps had moved along and where thus in different positions. The compositing was then done in Photoshop with layers of which only those sections with no people could be used.
Hope you enjoy!
