Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

Venice borough - Dorsoduro

Venice borough – Dorsoduro

There is something about strolling around Venice with the challenge to take some pictures that represent the beauty that you see. But it is even more important not to forget to change your point of view sometime. This week’s photo challenge is just perfect to train and look at things with a different perspective. So I took out my camera and tried to shoot following these simple rules: low the ISO, use a tripod, keep a good depth of field, look for an interesting foreground, find some lines to lead the eye of the observer, and don’t forget to look up at the sky. My subject has been this venetian house in the borough of Dorsoduro, with her typical bricks, drainpipe, and a less typical ivy mantle.
