Venice’s great wealth has led to some of Europe’s finest architecture, from the Byzantine, Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance periods. Nowhere else can you see such a remarkable medley of architectural styles, and this, along with the city’s 410 bridges, will present a neverending series of opportunities to the photographic eye. Literature, painting and, latterly, the movies have all contributed to embedding the city’s mythical nature into our minds.
For early risers amongst our party, a fine dawn across the Piazza San Marco offers a fabulous photo opportunity. Nothing could be more poetic than to stand on the Rialto Bridge looking westwards in the winter months, as the soft evening sun reflects and radiates in slippery golden ribbons across the black lacquer of the serene gondola.
Next is the delightful island of Burano. On a sunny day the toy town houses, colourfully reminiscent of liquorice allsorts, spill their wiggling reflections into the canals providing the photographer with some tantalising imagery.
This is an intensive workshop making for exciting images of the wonderful Venetian architecture, canals and gondolas led by photographers Phil Malpas and Clive Minnitt.
