A collection of September's 'photo of the day' pictures, I hope you enjoy them.
 
There are many wondrous cities in the world, and in Europe alone, one can argue the compared merits of, say, Rome, Athens, Paris, Madrid or quite a few others. Venice, however, is in a different league from all those prestigious competitors, not only because of its sheer concentration of art in every form and shape, but also because of its unique situation : it is a city built on water, a city literally resting on millions of stilts, where water is everywhere and cars nowhere to be seen - except for the ugly appendage of Piazzale Roma, which all visitors leave behind as soon as they can upon their arrival.
 
Motion Blur is a technique intended to capture the movement, instead of having it frozen. The most common way to understand what a motion blur picture is, is to think of a vehicle moving and impressing the sensor in a long exposure photo, and recording a blurred trail.
 
Light painting is not difficult to learn, doesn't require much experience and is a lot of fun! The idea behind this technique is really simple: while shooting a long exposure photo, move a source of light around, this gets recorded onto the sensor of the camera as an abstract drawing or 'light painting'.
 
Whilst browsing through Reddit the other day, I came across this excellent tip for creating hazy light effects using just a sandwich bag and a coloured marker. It's a great little tutorial, a refreshing change from doing everything post processing in Photoshop. The example photos in the post are well worth a look as well.
