GOLDEN HOUR PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
During this Golden Hour Workshop you will experience a private workshop to capture the best pictures.
The golden hour, blue hour or magic hour is the time between day and night when the sky fills almost entirely with a darker blue than the sky blue of the day.
This workshop is one of the most popular photography workshops compare to the normal day light photography workshops.
It requires a special care about good time for shooting.
LOCATIONS FOR THIS PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
Photographing during the golden hour requires two special attentions.
- the expected time of sunset
- the best location to photograph a specific monument.
We will choose together the best landmarks you want to shoot and we must care about the distance between the locations because the light during blue hour is changing very quickly.
The best locations for a first photographic experience in Paris during the golden hour are located along the Seine and we must focus on 3 or 4 locations.
Of course we can define another locations together.
The best locations along the Seine for shooting during the magic hour.
- Notre Dame
- Pyramide du Louvre
