Venice Carnivale in front of the Vaporettos

Daily Photo – Venice Carnivale in front of the Vaporettos

People wearing all their Carnivale garb look especially storybook in the night. Before I went to this huge event, I thought that people may not enjoy having their photo taken. Boy, what I wrong. They just stand around posing all day long for the joy of it. I was often wondering if they wanted money, but there seemed to be a fun narcissistic anomaly where all of these people just loved being the center of attention. And that worked great for me.

A Painting of Venice

Daily Photo – A Painting of Venice

I don’t do a lot of painting, but maybe I should! I quite enjoy it. I think I just don’t really feel like an expert yet or anything… but that’s never stopped me before so why should it now? This is a digital painting btw… I’ve never tried actual painting unless you count fingerpainting in kindergarten.

Ticket Delivery

Daily Photo – Ticket Delivery

I was shooting this really cool palace in Venice when, out of the blue, this gal came crawling up the stairs to give me some tickets for a show later that night. This is just the sort of thing that happens in Venice.

The Canals at Midnight

Daily Photo – The Canals at Midnight

This was taken on one of my final nights in Venice with the Hasselblad. It was pretty much the last time I used the camera. I did indeed love the quality of the camera, but I finally determined it was just too slow and didn’t have the quickness and light flexibility of the Sony. The Sony was also better for street photography, festival stuff, and generally just quicker for landscape photos.

Bridge of Doom in Venice

Daily Photo – Bridge of Doom in Venice

This is one of the most hated bridges in Venice. It’s a Calatrava design and a lot of the surface is made of glass. It gets super-slippery in the rain and people topple over the edge into the canal sometimes. I can’t imagine that happening, but I can attest to it being almost frictionless. I mean the guard rails are pretty big, but I guess if you’re tall and have a high center of gravity, I suppose I could see it happening. Actually, I’d LOVE to see it happen to my friend Rene, as long as he didn’t get hurt. Believe it or not, Rene did actually fall in the canal in the middle of the night by himself. There may have been drinking involved, but we can’t really say that was the sole cause… it’s all hilarious to me only because he wasn’t hurt at all. But, he could have died for sure… I woke up in the morning to an email that said, “I fell in the canal.” I couldn’t stop laughing…

Lisa in Venice

Venice Photo Tutorial

Speaking of today’s photo, here is a video preview of our Venice Photo Tutorial!

Daily Photo – Lisa in Venice

Here’s Lisa in one of the many photos I took around Venice while filming. We basically spent most of the day rolling around Venice with our cameras while shooting. I ended up with probably 10,000 photos, many of which I still have not processed. So, here’s one of them!

Balcony Room in Venice

Daily Photo – Balcony Room in Venice

It would have been awesome to have one of these rooms during Carnival in Venice right in the middle of St. Mark’s Square. That’s where all the activity is centered, so I think it’d be cool just to hang out there on the balcony and have a lovely day, watching all the costumes down below… it must be a lot like time travel and seeing everything it was 1,000 years ago.

This sure was a great trip! I think it was rainy and moody almost every day we were filming, but the sun finally came out at the end. It was seriously like 3 weeks with no sun… That’s okay in many ways because Venice is even more beautiful in the rain and mist to me.

Bar 7 in Venice

Daily Photo – Bar 7 in Venice

This is a cool boutique hotel I stayed in for almost a month in Venice. We also hosted our photo workshop here, so we would all gather here every day to work on photos together and I would do some teaching while helping people out with their own photos. Then, we would also usually end up here at night to have a nightcap before bed.
