A lil' pause in my travels means both having some rest and catching up with work. Luckily there is something that combines these two apparently opposed activities, namely taking photos. Missing my city pretty much, one of the first things I wanna do after coming back home, is to grab my camera and walk down Parisian streets.
This time, after nearly a three weeks absence, I was happy to see that summer has finally arrived to Paris, allowing me to spend some time shooting beautiful light. As during the day the temperatures were way too high to shoot (I can't even focus on anything when it's more that 33 degrees), sunrises and sunsets turn out to be the best time of the day to take photos.
Sounds pretty easy, but in reality you gotta be rather persistent to either get up before 6am for the early morning light or stay outdoors till 21pm to catch this extraordinary golden glow. What's more, during the day the sun is simply too strong. Add to it extremely sharp and omnipresent shadows resulting in and you'll realize how difficult it can be to obtain a good photo.
So during a couple of days in a row I try to gather up all motivation that I have and shoot as much as possible in the early morning or in the late evening. This is how I manage to get some really stunning light on my photos and at the same time fill my image stock before the upcoming trip to a new and very exciting destination...
I won't be here for a couple of weeks but hopefully in late August I'll share with you some brand new photo series. Stay tuned!
