PHOTO PORTRAITS IN VENICE: RAIN AS AN ALLY RATHER THAN AN ENEMY

The mirroring effect in the puddles along the alleys might help the photographer to get nice photo portraits in Venice

In most cases, no matter where you are going to shoot your photo portraits, sun and fine weather are strategic allies to get beautiful shots.

This is of course true as for Venice. Sunny weather can help professional portrait photographers getting great shots making the most of light or focusing, for instance, on water and sunset.

Nevertheless, I experienced several cases where rainy days were also useful to get original and impressive shots. For instance, rainy days offer the photographer the chance to make the most of the rain puddles’ mirroring effect.

Beside, rainy weather adds a touch of romanticism to the city, which it is especially helpful for a couple portrait photographer hired for wedding and honeymoon photo services.

PHOTO PORTRAITS IN VENICE: PLANTS AS KEY ELEMENTS

In springtime some blossoming flowers might add a colorful touch to couple photo shotings.

Venice is not that much a “green city”. Apart from the big public park “Giardini di Sant’Elena” in the Castello district, its green areas are mostly closed in private courtyards. Therefore, it is not easy to see green spots in the city.

Nevertheless, plants, flowers and trees are not completely absent and they might be used as interesting elements when shooting photo portraits in Venice.

For instance, when I am hired as a photographer for wedding, engagement and honeymoon services, I often enjoy letting the couples playing with some of these green elements which add a touch of color and natural feeling to the shots.

In springtime I also have the chance to shoot  a couple next to blooming flowers  which, needless to say, add to the photo portrait’s romantic flavor. My favorite ally in this challenge is the wisteria: Venice has many secret corners where you can see wisteria trees “pouring” down their lilac flowers like colorful bunch of grapes….just come to Venice for a photo portrait and I will show them to you!
