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?

Here are a few shots from March 2024 which may be considered a visual diary of what was catching my eye. Although all shots were processed the same (through Abode Lightroom) shots were taken on a mix of iPhone (first set), as well as the Fujifilm XE3 with 35mm lens, and also on my old Fujifilm XT2 with manual 28mm and 50mm Pentax lenses (second set).



The XT2 still takes a good shot, even though the rear screen no longer works! But that just adds to the analogue feel as you can't see what you've got until they've been uploaded onto the laptop. But I liked being forced to slow the process down and make each shot more considered. This is something I keep coming back to, so April may see more images shot in this format.




Quite an eclectic mix as usual, lots of rain (i.e. umbrellas), some sun and a few quirky moments, but overall a few familiar themes featuring light, shade and reflection.


So, let me know what you think... any favourites?!

The images are part of an ongoing project entitled ‘Time and Tide’ documenting Venice through the changing seasons. See www.monochromevenice.com for more, and to buy prints!
