It was 07:03 AM on that 4th of February 2013, when I crossed the Piazzetta on my way to take some shots of the Basino di San Marco and its surroundings. I was quite surprised to see that there was already quite a lot of other photographers out there. But as I had planned to take cityscapes and architecture shots, they were all busy taking pictures of the disguised models posing in front of the beautiful buildings of that wonderful city.

Photographer: Sébastien Beun (Thuin, Belgium) Registered
Sébastien Beun is a Belgian based amateur photographer born in 1981. He came into photography at the age of 12. Sébastien bought his first single lens reflex and made his first attempts to develop black and white negatives and prints after having discovered his father’s old material in the attic. Few years later he bought more modern dark room material, and over the course of time moved into digital photography eventually. Today he takes digital photographs of everything that touches him. He keeps his dark room material in his attic, as he believes one day he can show how that works to his own son.
