some shots of my recent trip to paris.
1. Notre Dame
Cool pics man, thanks for sharing.
Most look pretty snap-shotty, to be honest... Gotta get creative when shooting stuff that has already been seen ten million times.. or photograph more obscure things in the city..
I didn't even bother taking any pictures of the eifle tower as the main subject from afar really.. this was my fave shot from it anyway though:
If you really do want to shoot something iconic that everyone has seen a million times, try and frame in in an interesting way:
If you are going to photograph art, get close, use some DOF and try to make it interesting.. otherwise it just looks like you are taking a stock reference photo or something.. here is an example of what i did:
His shots are absolutely snapshots, and not all that interesting, but they're a lot better than yours
haha ok.. we can agree to disagree then.
I wasn't really trying to make a 'my pics are better than yours' post, just giving the guy some ideas.
I do agree that he had to get way more creative (If he was there for photos, I understand someone being there are just wanting to explore instead of photograph)
i didnt go there specifically for photos but i do understand what you guys are saying about them being snapshotty!
you took pictures inside Notre Dame and scare coeur?
I wanted to but the guards said no pictures.
wtf, you can take as many pictures as you want in notre dame...
I've done it and saw tons of people doing it both times I was there.
heres my paris pics from the last time I was there btw
one of my favorite cities!
inside notre dame you can do whatever. inside scare coeur, youre not allowed to. i could have took some but i wanted to respect the service etc..plus they have guards everywhere inside there. both places were superrr dark.
ill check em out when i get home.
i also ordered a new book. photo trekking. looked interesting...anyone read it?
Forgive the shitty compression
i wish i could see pictures at work would make browsing OTAP much more enjoyable
I went in 2003. This was the last time that I shot 35mm on vacation
some pictures of me
where was this taken from?
