I don’t do many training courses anymore, but when I do I make sure they’re the good ones! Ha

This one was another with Chris Chambers, but this time it was a trip to Paris.

A trip away, always has to start with one thing – A journey & this plane journey certainly had some

stunning views 🙂

When we arrived on Sunday afternoon, we had a few hours to get things ready, before it was out around Paris for

an evening of photography 🙂

We, of course started with the most recognisable icon of both Paris & perhaps France, the Eiffel Tower.

Its amazing, just moving your osition, and using the light in different ways, what results you can achieve,

with it being a Chris Chambers course, there was an element of adding light too, in the form of speedlights 🙂

This area below, show what can be done, even when the area isn’t perhaps the nicest, and smells of wee! haha

After the “wee” area, it was back to the bridge we started the day on, for a few more night time shots 😉

Monday, was more of a recce day, so it was a bit (not in terms of walking!! lol) relaxed, so it was a day to take some

iPhone landscapes, drink some beer & enjoy some French food 🙂

Tuesday started EARLY, with some sunrise pictures, using both the available light & off camera flash.

It was then off to a gorgeous building we found on the recce on Monday – can’t remember its name though!wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (21)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (22)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (53)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (23)

A loving walk in beautiful Paris, always looks especially romantic 🙂wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (43)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (24)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (44)wedding-paris-wedding-photography-france (25)

Then it was more walking, by this point my feet were killing me – but did I complain?

Of course i did! haha – But kept on regardless! lol

We reached Notre Dame , and decided to use the gardens round the back for a few images.

The pigeons weren’t playing ball for this one – But we’d get them too! … Tomoorw 😉

We stopped at a lovely Parisian cafe for a break, a few beers and a couple of lovely images.

Again, I forget the name, but there’s a bridge in Paris where people leave locks attached to the bridge,

well it was at this bridge, Chris showed us what can be achieved with a simple structure & some great lighting –

we’d be back later tonight, so he could show us more.

It was break time after that, then off to the Louvre at night – unfortunately it was closed off 🙁 …..

However we made the best of a bad situation & found some areas around here instead.

We then headed off to some of the earlier locations, to see how they looked at night –

the answer = gorgeous!

It was another early start on Weds, as this was the final day & we were all flying back later.

….. Told you we got the pigeons to play ball! ha

A train station was even used to grab another brilliant & unusual shot 😉

It was then time to head back towards the hotel, stopping at a few point along the way.

The flight home treated us to more stunning views.

Have to say Paris was lovely – but you’re always happy to be home, aren’t you? 😉
