Paris in pictures

Gents at Marche Place D'Aligre, Paris

I spent a half day in Paris while I was there a little over a week ago behind the lens of my camera (even more than usual). The difference this time? I had a professional photographer peering over my shoulder at every shot, critiquing, offering suggestions and asking questions (did you mean to have the half of a flower pot in the picture?). This half-day workshop was a fabulous way to see Paris, one of my long-time favorites, in a new way. It also opened my eyes to some of the tools I’m not using on my camera (I’m an ‘auto’ setting shooter most of the time). I see now how much more I have to learn and how much practice I need, but I did like a few of my shots from the day. Here are some  favorites:

  1. Your pictures are good and I especially like the two in the Place Vosges. The color in the photo of the violinist is outstanding and the composition is just right. Nice work!

  2. Gorgeous photos! What a great way to spend an afternoon in such a wonderful place, thanks for sharing!

  3. Hi Dana,
    I found your blog somehow….searching for info on travel in Marrakesh. So happy to find this post on photography in Paris. It so happens that I have a week in Paris on my way to Marrakesh, and taking a photography workshop seems like a great introduction to the city.

    Love your photos…and am enjoying the rest of your blog, too.

    How did you find out about Sophie’s workshop? Just curious.
