In this 6 days (and 5 nights) long Photography Trip , we will enjoy the most from the inexhaustible photographic opportunities offered by a city like Paris, the City of Light (and Love). We will have at our disposal an extraordinary list of monuments, among which are several of the most famous in France and around the world, as the world famous Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Cathedral of Notre Dame or the Louvre.
In addition, we will be able to capture the Parisian charm in every street, avenue, park, square or building, enjoying both architectural and social photography, due to the busy life of the French capital, maximized at this time of the year.
In this experience, as well as taking advantage of the best moments of light, sunrises and sunsets, we will be focusing the most on night and blue hour photography. The impressive monuments and buildings of Paris are even more shocking when it gets dark, due to the careful lighting of each of them. We will spend many hours practicing night photography, since at the time of our trip the sun will set very soon, giving us many hours every day to immortalize several of the goals envisaged for this destination.
On the other hand, and to the likelihood of having bad weather during our stay, being the month of December, we will try to take advantage of this situation, playing with the possible puddles that we will find, and their beautiful reflections, and even, being lucky, with the possibility of snowfalls during our visit.
All of this, as in the rest of our travels, with the advantage that you’ll always be accompanied and advised by photographers who already know the city greatly, after more than ten visits to it, in this case.
Our trip will be geared towards architectural and urban landscape photography, taking advantage of fewer daylight hours to take our pictures. Besides waking up early to photograph every sunrise, we’ll stay up late to immortalize the Parisian monuments, streets and buildings with their precious night illuminations. All this with the addition of the Christmas lights, which made Paris, if possible, even a more magical city.
Apart from night and low light photography, we will spend part of this trip practicing social photography, since we will be visiting one of the most populated cities in Europe. Places like La Defense Business Area, West of Paris, will help us to take pictures of avant-garde buildings next to the bustle and stress of life in a city like this.
In both situations, we will be able to practice photography with filters, especially using neutral density filters to lengthen our exposures notoriously. With filters of about 10 stops, we can make long daytime exposures in which we will isolate the tourist areas from the huge number of people that are around, but we will also try to play with the clouds and their movements, in contrast to the buildings of the city.
As with all of our Photography Trips, our way of living and feeling these experiences mean to enjoy the most of them at all times. This includes living the experience both during the preparation of the trip, and logically during the journey, but also after the return of it.
Therefore, we are preparing the trip including activities even for the return of it, so you will be able to live the experience to 100%, all this with the collaboration of “B the travel brand”, one of the leaders in its sector, and which always offers maximum confidence and guarantees with everything related to any trip.
In short, what we offer you is a fantastic experience focused on architectural and urban landscape photography, especially at night and blue hour, in addition to moments of social photography, all of this in a luxury destination.
We will take advantage of the best moments of light, sunrises and sunsets and blue hour, to later dedicate several hours each day for night urban photography, all this without time for getting bored for a single second, given the huge list of monuments, buildings and other points of interest in a city as spectacular as Paris.
Even in spite of the possible weather inclements, we will return with magnificent images from one of the most photographed and beautiful cities on Earth. We will take you to several of the best locations at the best time for photography, your imagination sets the limit.
