Venice Carnival 2007 (by Jana and Kjask)
Posted By: kjask, 02-24-2007, 07:42 AM

Last Friday, Jana and I spend a beautiful day in Venice, shooting famous masks and enjoying almost spring's warm sun...

We decided to publish photos together in one post.
We used Pentax K10d, *istDS, MZ-3, MZ-50 with lenses: FA77/1.8, FA50/1.4, FA70-210 and Tokina 55-300. We hope you will enjoy...

Here we go! This is how we came to Venice... : P

What a great day for photos!

Thank-you both for posting your photos. Everything was wonderful, color, style, content, just everything. Is the first photo of the two of you walking into venice? If so, is the fact that you were in costume make it any easier to take pictures of the other people on the street?

Again thanks for letting me travel to Venice from my arm chair!

Amazing, simply amazing. You have the eye and the talent that makes me envious. Great subjects in very interesting surroundings. Your use of DOF really works to draw my eye to your compositions. Thank you very much for posting these excellent shot.

Thanks a lot for your first favorable impressions.
It was really very enjoyable day we spent in Venice. And for me that was the first real test of new 77 and 50 lenses.

Louis, Kjask was only joking with prefatory sentence. It would be impossible to take photos in such costumes with all we had with us, or at least not for the whole day. As a matter of fact it is easy to take photos of the masks as they are generously posing. The only problem is the crowd of visitors during the carnival days. Therefore we went there on Friday to avoid a terrible week-end crush, but during the working days there aren't so many masks.

Amazing serie! Venice is a city I would love to visit again. It just rains too often and the cost of staying is too dear for me when I visited the place 3 years ago.

I did not know Jana as your partner! You two make a great couple producing these outstanding photojournalism photos

Great stuff. You made quite an entrance and looking through the pictures didn't leave me dissapointed.

Picture No: 3 in the first post is my favourite, just for the sake of having one. I liked all the captures with colors and shapes as made for getting depicted. And I think you succeeded very well with this.

Thank you for showing all this!

Excellent. I love the flying bird in the top left of one of them. Nicely captured and composed. They must get really sick of posing by the time it's all over!

Beautiful! I've seen the many masks in the store windows in Venice, but never "in use". Your pictures are first rate from all aspects. Thanks for posting.
