During our Venice Carnival Photo Tour we spend most of our time concentrating on the Carnival itself - the models, the costumes, St. Marks Square, and so on - but we also spend a couple of half days photographing some of the other wonderful places in and around Venice. One of those is Burano, 'the colourful island' - and I'll post some shots from there soon - while the other is the island of Murano, famous for it's glass.
We're extremely fortunate to have access to the Nason Moretti factory and while we're there we split into two groups: one photographs the glass blowing, the other the showroom, and then we rotate.
I can't say I'm 100% happy with this one - the reflection on the glass shelf could have been cleaner - but as I only had twenty minutes or so to find a shot, set it up, and shoot it I'm reasonably pleased with how it turned out.
As always, let me know what you think.
