An Port – Donegal

There is a place up in Donegal that always surprises me for its beauty and wilderness. The coastline is fabulous, you can walk for hours both North and South along gorgeous cliffs and sea stacks. Still I haven’t managed to come home with a shot that makes it justice. Last weekend also the guys fromContinue reading “An Port – Donegal”

Postcard from Venice: Traffic over the Grand Canal

I still have a couple of gorgeous photographic spots to share with you from my recent trip to the United States, but now is the time for a postcard from Venice: one of the most classic view of “Canal Grande”. Location: Accademia Bridge (Ponte dell’Accademia). Together with the Rialto Bridge, the Ponte degli Scalzi, and theContinue reading “Postcard from Venice: Traffic over the Grand Canal”

Pictures of Venice: Stillness at Rialto

A classic picture of Venice, almost a postcard of the city: the view from the Rialto Bridge. I just took advantage of two simple technical choices to give the picture a different look. Following the motto “less is more”, I went for a simple, minimalist composition, as in my previous post Stillness. To do thatContinue reading “Pictures of Venice: Stillness at Rialto”

Stillness

Let’s start this new year of blogging with one of the most iconic views of Venice. The picture of Santa Maria della Salute church, from the Accademia bridge, is one of those that everyone who is visiting Venice doesn’t want to miss, from the pro photographer to the most absent-minded point and shoot owner. ButContinue reading “Stillness”

The Pier – Bled Lake – Slovenia

Location: Bled Lake, Slovenia. What to shot: Bled really is the perfect training spot for landscape photography. Its lake is dominated by the iconic Bled Castle, perched on a rock, and embellished with a fairy-tale small island, which lies just in the middle of the lake, between the thermal waters and the Alps, and  is home toContinue reading “The Pier – Bled Lake – Slovenia”

Lights on La Grande Plage – Biarritz

Last week I went on a vacation to Biarritz with my girlfriend, and it has been one of the most gorgeous experience ever. It was a “study vacation”, filled with French language and surf lessons, but in spite of the busy schedule we had time to met some of the most lovely people with whom we enjoyed the relaxed lifestyle ofContinue reading “Lights on La Grande Plage – Biarritz”

Traffic over the Grand Canal

I have just received my new Sony alpha a6000 (ILCE 6000), and I am already in love with it. It is so amazing to have such a powerful tool in such a small body. Look like this mirrorless thing can become my faithful buddy of everyday life. Being so small and light, it so handyContinue reading “Traffic over the Grand Canal”

Sunrise over San Giorgio Maggiore

Venice Photography Tips. This week I have been to one of the most popular spots in Venice: St. Mark’s Square. Being really crowded all the year round and offering many cues to your photographic spirit, it is good to arrive on the site with some clear ideas about the pictures you are going to take. AContinue reading “Sunrise over San Giorgio Maggiore”

Sunrise at Bled Lake – A few minutes later

I already wrote about Bled here. Location: Bled Lake, Slovenia. What to shot: Here it is another composition I took in the morning, just a couple of minutes after the sun rose. I walked to the boardwalk on the south-west coast, that offers a gorgeous vantage point to the lake. The clouds in the sky shieldedContinue reading “Sunrise at Bled Lake – A few minutes later”

Venetian lagoon from Giudecca Island

Spring has arrived, it’s time to take out your gear and head for some gorgeous open air sessions! Location: Island of Giudecca, Venice. What to shot: Giudecca Island, with its typical shape of a long thorn, is located immediately south of the central islands of Venice. You can reach it in just a couple of minutesContinue reading “Venetian lagoon from Giudecca Island”

Sunrise over the Grand Canal – Venice

I took this picture this morning from the Accademia Bridge. I wanted to change the “perspective” of the shot erasing the time concept to make the picture somehow atemporal. To do this I overexposed the scene and edited it in black and white to eliminate any detail from the sky and any color. Location: Accademia BridgeContinue reading “Sunrise over the Grand Canal – Venice”
