Costumed models playing a harp in a 16th century palace in Venice, Italy during carnival.

I set this shot up for my photo tour group in Venice, Italy. I used a Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 III wide angle lens, and my settings were 1/60, f/4, 1600 ISO. I hand held the camera. The lighting comes from a combination of daylight and tungsten light from the sconces. I lead a photo workshop to Venice every year for carnival, and this is one of the private shoots I arrange for the workshop participants.
