02 I was de­ter­mined to visit this lo­ca­tion dur­ing my trip to Rome. I took the shot shortly after the mu­seum opened, to avoid crowds, and I shot hand­held as tripods aren’t al­lowed. I took three ex­po­sures and blended them us­ing lu­mi­nos­ity masks in Pho­to­shop. I also cap­tured a few ex­tra ex­po­sures to re­move un­wanted sub­jects. Re­touch­ing con­sisted of re­mov­ing dis­tract­ing el­e­ments, and dodg­ing and burn­ing each stair land­ing to em­pha­sise the spi­ral of the stair­case.
