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.

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”

OK First off let’s be honest it’s not really an Alley … but it just sounded much better that way. Really most of the roads look like this.
I think this really shows how you can just pick any street on the map or out of a hat and go there and find a trove of awesome shots.

How do Parisian photographers get anygood with sooooo many amazing places to shoot… it’s like they don’t have to try hard. (That can’t be good for developing raw skills)

Now that we got this out of the way we shot here because well this is where we picked them up right outside their hotel… thought we’d do some warm up shots since it was cloudy and the weather wasn’t forcing our hands to get anywhere fast.

It was a nice quite oneway (as most all the streets are) so we only had to get out of the road a few times.

Yeah we just picked the closest coolest windows available.

So in my continued attempt to bring you small glimpeses of my trips this christmas season i thought i’d bring out a few pictures I took while DRIVING through St. Louis.

All of these were while i drove happhassardly through St. Louis before i had to rush over to the airport to catch a flight back to Salt Lake City.

Showing off the magesty of the 14-24mm Nikon f/2.8 wide angle on a full frame D700.

If you knew how little effort I put into these pictures you’d be sick 😉

I purposely stopped at the red light right in this spot so i could get the sun like this.
I could also put my F/Stop pretty high and the shutter speed down a bit since I was stopped and not actually driving.

I don’t do a ton of big city shots so i’d be interested to know which ones are popular with people.

I went on an overnite camping trip to a State Park about an hour away from Provo, Utah. There was a group of us and I had my camera of course. If you were part of the trip and want to see the pictures of the Group you’ll have to check later to the Personal Blog

 

Scofield State Park is mainly a fishing lake. There are a couple campsites and you can almost drive around the whole lake 25-30 miles around.
