Venice Photography Tip: if you are looking for a good spot to shoot at the lagoon of Venice and one of its most beautiful islands, San Giorgio Maggiore, you can go to the “Riva degli Schiavoni”, right next to Saint Mark’s Square. The foreground is rich of distinctive elements of Venice, such as gondolas, poles and lampposts, which you can include in your frame, or just ignore to focus on the background, as I did in the picture above. In front of the church is still visible the temporary installation “The Sky Over Nine Columns“, in one of its last days in Venice.
Wish you all a happy new year 2015! 😉
Location: St. Mark’s Square, Venice.
