This photo was taken last summer in Rome. When posting the article Rome captured in five photos , I didn't realise to have this shot. Otherwise it would definitely have been in! These stairs are part of the Vatican Museum, an amazing place that's a must to visit when in Rome. Honestly, the composition is not quite original. The Internet is full with this kind of 'twirling stairs' images. I personally enjoy the shot most because it was taken handheld with a slow shutter speed of 1/3s. It doesn't happen very often that I hold the camera that steady. The slow shutter speed created the motion blur of the people walking down the stairs. Would it suck without this dynamic? Most likely.
Join me in my photography adventures! Just like many of you I am just the casual amateur. I like to experiment with new techniques and different subject. I hope you enjoy reading my blog.
