Paris acquired its present day name towards the end of the Roman era. Paris is renowned world over as the “The City of Light” (La Ville-lumiere). The city was given this name because of its early adoption of street lighting. For all these reasons and more, photographing Paris during the day or night, and especially at night in the rain, makes Paris one of the most beautiful cities in the world to photograph.
This workshop is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light, but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment. Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of, but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general.
Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity with our assistance. In addition, you will become knowledgeable on how to survey the landscape, utilize and approach your environment, photograph people indigenous to the region and the cultural considerations and challenges of photographing in a foreign country.
And no photography workshop would be complete without discussing workflow and the editing process. Our week together will include individual and group reviews, personal assignments and great fun. We cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than the magical city of Paris!
