HDR Photography | Shimmer in Venice
Nothing beats watching the boats go by on the Ponte dell’Accademia bridge in Venice, Italy. I’ve always loved photographing cities at blue hour. The warm glowing lights create the most beautiful contrast to the dark inky blue sky. In Venice, the lights reflect and almost seem to dance on the Grand Canal giving it this fascinating shimmer effect. It’s breathtaking to witness in person. To be honest, I feel like I could stare at it for hours. For this shot, I used a low shutter speed because it allows you to capture motion in the scene. I managed to time the shot to include this random speed boat zipping through the water. If you ever get a chance to visit Venice, put this bridge on your must-see list. You won’t regret it!
