When the Music Stops – The Florian Venice, Italy

Venice a Photographic Treasure

When the Music Stops – Venice, Italy
When the Music Stops – Venice, Italy

 

Venice which is one of my favorite places to photograph was our first stop for the Italian October Photographic workshops. Venice’s elegant decline holds stunning photographic treasure waiting to be discovered.  Walking down every walkway one has only to look around every corner to find wonderful courtyards with storefronts and elegant old palaces each having its own story waiting to be photographed.

Since its beginning Venice has literally risen from the sea. Situated in a strategic position on the Adriatic Sea, Venice is comprised of 117 small islands floating in the Venice Lagoon. With easy access to the major sea lanes of what  was then the civilized world during the period from the 11th century till the 17th century, it grew to become the commercial powerhouse of the Mediterranean.  

About europeanimages

Light is both the photographer's palette and brush. Harnessing available light is a skill learned through the study of technical theory and then applying it in the field. My goal as a photographer is to search out the images that interest me artistically, then once I have found the essence of that place I use composition and light to enhance the images.
