Il bello (o forse il brutto 😂) di amare sia la paesaggistica che la ritrattistica, è che per farle bene entrambe devi conoscere molte più cose.
L'uso della profondità di campo, ad esempio, è totalmente opposto nei due generi.
Mentre quando scatti un ritratto vorresti una pdc molto ridotta, in maniera tale da concentrare l'attenzione sul tuo soggetto, fotografando un paesaggio, come ad esempio in questo scatto del Canal Grande a Venezia, vorresti che tutto fosse a fuoco, anche se non sempre è così facile ottenerlo.
Banalmente, una soluzione può essere quella di "chiudere molto il diaframma": quante volte l'avrete sentito dire!
Ma nel momento in cui si inizia a parlare di diffrazione, "sweet spot" dell'obiettivo, iperfocale e tanti bei tecnicismi, ecco che il gioco inizia a farsi interessante, e capisci che chiudere il diaframma non sempre è la soluzione migliore. 😁
As a result of my digital detox all the days are blending - not a bad problem to have unless you’re due for a #TravelerRightsThursday post and all of a sudden it’s Friday! But as promised, we’re back and chatting about over-tourism ✈️👥👥👥
The flip side of traveler rights are traveler responsibilities, and since we’re all a part of the community of explorers it’s on all of us to try to spread out in such a way that we don’t overwhelm local communities. Venice is a perfect example with tourists flocking to Piazza San Marco or the Rialto Bridge. But if you look closely at the Grand Canal (pictured here), you can see tiny alleys spreading out through the city like arteries. I’ve found so many hidden gems💎here while taking these less-traversed pathways and allowing myself to get lost in them! Mini-gardens, petit piazzas, local gelato shops, you can find these too and help lessen the congestion in the “popular” places. Share the lesser-known, lesser-posted places on social media 📲 and you too can help the over-tourism problem! ♡

In a slow afternoon in the spring of 1227, in Venice, a young forge assistant named Pietro Caprassucchia, had a fantastic idea while operating the large bellows to stoke the fire. After the day was done, he took the small, more managealble bellows to the canal, dove in and lowered his head while pumping aid directly into his mouth. The experiment showed him the with the aid of the device, he could, indeed, breath under water.
For the next several months, young Pietro used his meager wages and all his spare time perfecting the mechanism, which led him to create a mouth piece, a long leather hose, a floating device on top of which he adapted a small bellows, and a lever mechanism connecting his legs to the bellows, so when he beat them in order to move, he would also be pumping air into his mouth.
For over one year Pietro worked in secret, until the day he decided to test his invention. That night, the young apprentice tied his apparatus in one of the gondola poles opposite Santa Maria della Salute basilica and proceeded to invade the mansion of Barone Angelo Castragrassi, one of the richest men in the realm.
Inside the house, Pietro stole whatever silverware was at hand at the mansion’s ballroom, shoved it all in a sack, and tied the sack to his back. When the house help — and the barone himself — were awaken by the noise and commotion, they hurried to the ballroom, but got there just in time to see someone fleeing through the terrace door and jumping over to the boat decks. Everyone was quite surprised when they found nobody at the deck nor any boats on the water. The barone’s guards immediately boarded the house boats and spent the night rowing about in the canal, but found no vestige of the thief.
Pietro, of course, quickly retrieved his apparatus as soon as he got to the pole, strapped it on and jumped into the water. Unfortunately, he didn’t foresee the effect that a sack full of heavy silverware would have on his buoyancy, and was immediately dragged down to the bottom of the canal as soon as he pushed away from the pole. With the pumping mechanism strapped over the sack, he wasn’t able to free himself in time, and drowned while desperately trying to
