Venice Carnival Workshop - one or two day option | St. Mark's Square | Saturday, 22. February 2020

This one day or two day workshop will guide you to getting fantastic images of Venice Carnival and the city itself. Starting at 8am to catch the early morning light and before the crowds build we will start with going through settings and equipment together with ideas for composition of images. We will then head in to St Marks Square and the lagoon front area for a session shooting the many carnival characters- some free time will also be given. 

We then will proceed from St Marks Square to the Rialto area where we will have time for lunch (not included) and a debrief on the morning's activities. With it's bustling market and of course the fantastic Grand Canal and Rialto bridge this area is a vibrant and interesting location and again full instruction will be given on making the most of the opportunity. 

We then head in to lesser known and quieter areas of Venice where we will look for some atmospheric images of the wonderful architecture and expect to meet up with more carnival characters in a more relaxed locations before heading back towards the St Marks's square area in time to capture the later afternoon and early evening light as it glances across the fantastic architecture and carnival characters. The workshop will conclude at around 6pm when you can then capture Venice in the evening, at night or do whatever you wish. Following the course, you will receive a full set of notes, hints and tips together with a link to view the images taken by the tutor, plus you can submit your images (up to 10) for a critique by the tutor withing 14 days.

If you have booked the two day workshop this covers the same format as this course on the first day but then moves on to capture more of Venice and the beatiful islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello on the second day. again concluding back in St Mark's square around 6pm.
