OK while still up in the Montmartre district we took some pictures with the views of down below.
The first area was a less typical view while planted on some steps to the north of the really popular areas.
We actually only spent a short time in the area in front of the cathedral. There were just too many people and not enough awesome views.
I prefered this location.
I shot through some black railing and that’s the effect you’re seeing in the top portion of the picture above. Pretty COol.
Just Looking Good.
OK Well on we go with another episode of the Paris Wedding Formals
This time we find ourselves still in Montmarte… First we stop outside of a Creperie for their brightly colored red wall.
Then on the way out of this area they stopped at a Biscuiterie and got some more “candid” shots.
They made sure that I got things in the pictures that would let others know that they were in Paris
Yep I frequently got down on the ground… that’s how I work. Give it a little foreground
Well we had to eat at some point that day. So why not turn it into an awesome photo-op.
So we picked the best looking and least cluttered with people restaurant. It’s pretty chilly and she’s ready to get inside somewhere and stay warm… plus this means that the outside tables aren’t being used.
Well now you know where we ate and what was on the menu. haha
The table cloths are pretty classic
So I kinda came up with the idea of shooting through the window after we ate… first I went outside… but the reflections were way bad they practically had to press up against the glass to see them.
But looking back I love the reflections.
Then they went outside and sat. You must know that when I look at these pictures I’m thinking about all the lighting things I coulda done or if I had an assistant outside to help pose them since they couldn’t hear me.
Those are red curtains… he was way way red… this is after I desaturated it way down. The BW is pretty awesome but for some reason I love the red glow.
Ok so the 3rd stop on our day long photo expedition around the city for these wedding pictures was up in Montmartre
This is up on the hill with the views of the city and the famous Sacre-Couer Cathedral.
This was the area picked by people in my petition on my Facebook Biz Page – Asking where we should go in addition to where was already planned. Great Choice.
We got dropped off a bit from the popular spots so as to not get caught up in traffic and then the driver had to go run some errands.
We kinda just stopped as we were walking up some roads, tourists walking around stopped to take pictures of us.
Almost every building had a facade that was picture worthy, but we kinda randomly picked this one.
This guy had come out the back of his location for a smoke break and got a show to watch… which promptly because of his coolness I put him into the show.
I thought this was perfect… because this is france. I did kinda want him to stand back further maybe up against the wall and kinda in the background… I still wanted it mainly about her. But I must admit my french isn’t up to par to say things like “in the background” or “You should act like you just happen to be in the picture, doing your thing”
