A blurred photograph of Venice

Venice, Blurred II

Another experiment, this time a second take similar to the previous post. Taken during the last weekend of Carnival in Venice, Italy. Field Notes With my Lee filter system mounted and Big Stopper attached, I held the shutter open manually while blindly trying to frame what was ahead of me. It …

Venice, Blurred

This week, we have another of these experimental blurred/camera movement images. This time from a perhaps more recognisable place. This was taken during the last Carnival weekend in February from the side of a Vaporetto heading back to Piazza San Marco from San Giorgio Maggiore. Field Notes With my Lee filter system …

A couple of masked and costumed carnival attendants pose for photographers at sunrise in venice

Sunrise Photoshoot in Venice at Piazza San Marco

You have to be crazier than the rest of the people in Venice in order to get the best shots, which means getting up even earlier than what most people think is already an early time to wakeup. Waking up at 5am to capture the early morning scenes in Venice has …

Photograph of buildings in Venice reflected onto the water of a canal

Venice Reflections #1

As I mentioned in a previous post, during our gondola ride in Venice, David and I started to notice interesting reflections on the water, and as such, photos were made. The interesting thing about getting shots of reflections, is like David said, you just have to keep making them as …

Photograph of the Trevi Fountain in Rome, Italy, in the late afternoon with blue skies

Fontana di Trevi (Trevi Fountain)

It’s impossible to go to Rome and not make this photograph.  The Trevi fountain is one of the most well known “attractions” in Rome with good reason. It’s a beautiful fountain that has been here for hundreds of years (although not all of those years it in its current shape). …

Photograph of a woman in yellow and gold carnival costume in Venice 2012

Venice Carnival 2012 #8

On our second last day of the Venice Carnival 2012 Photo Tour, we all got up extremely early (and it was a Saturday) to head to Saint Marco’s square and make some portraits of the people in costumes. Well we all got up early, except me. I accidentally slept in …

Image of a chair against a red wall in the Italian Island of Burano in Venice

Burano Island #1

Trying something a little different from me with this image. This was taken on our second day of the photo tour when we made a 40 minute boat trip to the lovely island of Burano. Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon famous for its coloured houses and hand …

Buildings reflected on a canal in Venice

Venice Reflections #2

  During a gondola ride around Venice, one thing we noticed was how still the water was in some of the more inner canals. This lead to exploring the reflections in the water, which of course lead to photos being taken. This is one of them, and I have a …

Image of woman in 17th century costume running away from the light

Venice Carnival #5: Who’s there?

  Meet Giulia, our model for two afternoons during the Venice Carnival Photo Tour. This is an image that came to my mind after spending some time with her on the first day. I had an idea for something dramatic and moody. My original idea was to shoot this at …

Costumed reveler in white fantastical costume in Venice lit by flash

Venice Carnival #4

As I mentioned in the previous post, I wanted to post one more shot of this performer and costume. I think this one is even more dramatic. I used this image for one of the critiques, and there was a lot of debate about the window on the top right …
