Venice – Canals and Alleys of Dorsoduro
Photography tip of the week: Split-Second Story, Street Photography.
Location: Fondamenta De Le Romite, Dorsoduro, Venice.
What to shot: Dorsoduro is one of the most picturesque and graceful neighborhood of Venice. Not stricken by the crowds of tourists that rush St. Mark’s Square and Rialto Bridge, this area still hosts some of the most charming spots of Venice, like Punta della Dogana, the sunny waterfront of Zattere, the church of Santa Maria della Salute, the Squero of San Trovaso (a boatyard for Gondolas), and the island of Giudecca. Each one is well worth a picture for itself, but as you stroll around you will be surrounded by a myriad of peculiar details that make Venice the unique city it is: tiny alleys, peaceful canals, wooden boats, old shops. All there to be captured by your camera.
Ideal time to shot: All day long.
Gear: Standard zooms in the 24-105 mm range.
How to get there: Public transport water bus station Salute (line 1), Accademia (line 1, 2), Zattere (line 2, 5.1, 5.2, 6).
