There´s no doubt about it! Venice is truly a magical place and also one of the most photographed places in the world. Walking around this city is like being inside a fairytale book, a lovely dream and the only time you “wake up” is when you bump into a large group of tourists.
If you´re going to Venice (or any other popular travel destination) as a photographer, one of my best tips to ensure great photos is simple; get up super early to beat the crowd! Personally, I always set the alarm about 30 minutes before the sun starts to rise. I quickly jump out of bed, put my hair up, put my comfy shoes on and head out. Then, I´m at my location when the light is perfect and there´s nobody around to see me with messy hair and no makeup.
