Postcard from Vernazza, Italy

In Travel, Workshops and Events by David10 Comments

Hello from Camogli on the beautiful Ligurian coast in Italy. We were in Vernazza again last night, chasing the light, and also the pasta. It’s lovely here, but no easier to create a photograph that truly jumps out at you. We spend our days chasing the moment, the light, the lines, and getting them all to dance with each other in a single frame. Not easy. And then we subject those images to critique for a couple hours and it’s that, I think, that keeps driving us to consume large plates of pasta and much wine each night during our 10pm dinners. I love it here, and I love the companions who’ve chosen to travel with us. Please, sir, may I have some more…

New eBook comes out tomorrow – stay tuned and tell the world! 🙂

  3. You’ve captured that special light that we all chase here…the symmetry and randomness of the image comes together uniquely. Perfect exposure.

    Masterful vision and craft used in a very understated affair, well done!
