Venice is a beautiful City which offers many brilliant photo opportunities. Below is a small collection of photos of Venice taken by photographers who have managed to capture something special about the City floating on water. Don't forget to check out Dominique's post 'How and where to take less conventional photographs in Venice' for a slightly different perspective.
 
And here's another photography competition to try out for. Life Framer are running the competition, asking for photographs to be submitted along the theme of 'An instant'. Winners get their photos printed framed and exhibited in a London gallery and win $400, so can't all be bad eh.
 

I stumbled across Alexandre's online photography course recently. He's a mountain adventure photographer which I'm reckoning affords him the opportunity to take some truly stunning photographs.

The online courses are very comprehensive covering technicalities such as ISO, metering modes, focal length up to the more subjective areas including composition and where to get inspiration.


 

OK, that got your attention! I expect it's the dream of many to quit the nine to five, travel the world, and take some pretty amazing photographs along the way. Not many people can or actually do turn this dream into reality.

Elijah Soloman however, is somebody who did actually do this.


 
Photographing lightning can provide some quite amazing results. Such photos generally require a tripod set-up and a slow shutter speed to capture multiple bursts of lightning as they leave their storm clouds and hit the earth. There are many different types of lightning, including the traditional single bolt hitting the ground, to sheet lightning between clouds, the commonly associated forked lightning as well as forms such as ball lightning and chain lightning, to name but a few.
 
Canon have come up with a great walkthrough on exposure settings in their photography guide. They also have this great little application which allows you to adjust a specific shot and immediately see what the results would be so you can gain a better understanding of how different exposure settings work.
 

Digital Rev do a series of videos called the "Pro Photographer, Cheap Camera challenge" where they get a well known photographer to try his or her skills using a camera that is beyond it's prime.

In their recent video they ask Vincent Laforet, the pulitzer prize winning photo journalist to give it a go, giving up his Canon 1DX and instead using a Canon A2E film camera. His resulting photos are great.
