Château de Fontainebleau, France

5 11 2011

On this trip to Paris we passed through the Eiffel Tower, Opera Garnier , Louvre , Luxembourg Gardens and the Pantheon and the most beautiful Paris square, the Place des Vosges, at the Marais district.

Now is time to get a train at the Gare de Lyon for either Montargis Sens or Montereau, alighting at the little and charming Fontainebleau-Avon station, then take the ‘Ligne A’ bus destined for Les Lilas, alighting at the ‘Château’ stop. This way you will reach one of the most beautiful places in France. Forget about the beautiful but crowded Versailles. Fontainebleau is the place to go if you’re searching for beauty and tranquility.

Hope you like the photographs.

Place des Vosges, Paris, France

23 10 2011

After posting the Eiffel Tower, Opera Garnier , Louvre , Luxembourg Gardens and the Pantheon photographs, we’re going now to, in my opinion, the most beautiful Paris square, the Place des Vosges, at the Marais district.

When in Paris and at the Place des Vosges, you must enjoy a lunch or a dinner at the La Place Royale restaurant and check out the Gateau fondant au chocolat et creme dessert.

Hope you like the photographs.

Photography in small places

23 08 2011

I took this series of photographs for a client of mine, Binne Confort, they are a Brazilian retail shoe chain with 6 stores, all located at shopping malls.

The stores are confortable but small, so the pictures must focus on the confort and try to avoid the idea of ​​small rooms, which may not be so comfortable.

In these occasions I use to follow two rules: avoid people and photograph with wide angle lenses.

Avoiding people is usefull when photographing small places because a person in a picture adds the sense of size and scale, which is great to large places, but unwanted for the small ones.

And the use of wide angle lenses allows to extend the sense of distance between the foreground and background, making the place looks a little larger.

All pictures done with the Canon EOS7D, EFs 10-22mm lens, no filters. Converted from RAW to TIF and JPEG in DPP (Digital Photo Professional).

Hope you like it.
