Carnevale di Venezia

The exhibit will include images captured during their February 2016 visit to Venice during Carnival, or "Carnevale di Venezia". The artwork includes alluring images of costumed artisans posing in the misty Piazza San Marco, in a traditional gondola, in a 15th century palace, and on the Venetian island of Borano.

Composition Webinar

In this B&H Video, David Brommer starts with cave paintings, quickly works his way through Egyptian and Medieval art and arrives in the Renaissance to demonstrate the advancement of composition and the birth of the Rule of Thirds. From there, he offers a wonderfully comprehensive yet down to earth lesson in photo history, theory and equipment, but most important, he demonstrates the basics of photographic composition and what makes a “good” photo. www.bhphotovideo.com/indepth/photography/tips-solutions/holiday-2012-advanced-composition
