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 …

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 a boat in the water

Gone Fishing

Well not really fishing, but I couldn’t find a more suitable image 🙂 Heading to Istanbul today for Easter and really looking forward to it. It’s my first time that far east. Hope to capture some interesting photos to share with you. This image was taken on the way back …

Venice Carnival 2012 #9 : Behind the scenes

Not quite done with photos from the Venice Carnival of 2012, hope you aren’t bored yet 🙂 This photo was taken on the very early morning shoot we did at Saint Marco’s square on the last Saturday of the trip. As I mentioned previously, this was likely the very best opportunity to …

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 …

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 …

Photograph of woman in a red carnival costume in Venice Italy, 2012 during Carnival

Venice Carnival 2012 #7

  I could not help but stop and make a photograph of this person. The costume was incredible and she was very graceful. I spent a few minutes with her to get this shot which was taken on the very last day in Venice just before heading out to the …
