Following an intense downpour over Venice, the resulting puddles left perfect reflecting pools in Piazza San Marco as the sun reappeared. Another great example of April light and shadow, this time set against a dynamic sky. April 2024

In Venice the April light is great for getting sharp, clean contrasts between light and shadow highlighting the geometry of the street. It becomes even more intriguing when combined with reflective surfaces of the quiet backwater canals so it often pays to look down to look up! This is a triptych series taken on iPhone and shooting directly in square format. Venice, April 2023.

April. A great time for some bright light and intense shadows in Venice. Here's a flashback to a few shots taken on the old trusty (and still missed) Canon Powershot S90 - one of the first compact cameras to offer RAW files and an (impressive at the time) 10 megapixel sensor! Taken early evening in April 2013, a slow shutter speed (1/15 sec) was used to create a sense of motion with the passers by. The first pic on the left was the original published shot, and is still a popular image, but here I've also included a couple of rarely seen alternatives, attempting to catch people in the light beam. I still think the first one is the best, but what do you think?
