I am leaving on a road trip to Albania, but before I begin my journey, I couldn’t resist of spending one night in Venice. As a passionate traveler and photographer, I have been fortunate to visit Venice on several occasions, and each time, my love for this city increases.
My overnight stay in Venice was, as always, very nice. Walking through the narrow alleys and across the tiny bridges just makes me happy. I know Vernice pretty good and I always get back to the same locations for photos.
It’s not that I’m not open trying something new, but rather, I’m eager to capture an even more stunning shot than the ones I brought home last time. Venice always manages to surprise me.
Whether it’s witnessing familiar locations bathed in different light conditions or discovering entirely new spots, there are endless locations that just wait there to be captured. Each visit is an opportunity to find more things in this (relatively) tiny place I have never seen before.
My Road Trip to Albania continuous now on the ferry, that first brings me to Greece.
General Photography Tip: Reflections
Venice is famous for its network of canals, which provide fantastic opportunities for capturing stunning reflections. (As you may know I love reflections!)) Look for calm waters or areas with minimal boat traffic to capture clear reflections of the city’s beautiful buildings and bridges.
If there are pedestrians going over the bridge, just take multiple shots to remove them later in post-production.
I use the layer masking technique to remove people. Simply load the two photos as a layer in Photoshop, create a layer mask and brush the person / oject out.
If there are to many people with too many photos involved, then I use the “Image Statistics” within Photoshop to have the people / ojects removed.
