The Art of the Chase

Probably same as all other photographers, I also love to see how other photographers take their photos. I quite frequently buy different videos and books from the ones I like, just to compare my workflow and to learn something new. So when I (quite randomly) came across this new Kickstarter project by Jason Hines, I immediately became a backer. I would really love to see more of his work and more of the backstage of it. If you haven’t seen any of his photos, just check out his page and you will see how great they are. Here is the video of the project, where he describes the movie in more detail, really worth checking out.

View from the top

The view from the top of is just so stunning. We stood for about three hours on the same spot, just taking more and more photos. The view, with the combination of the beautiful, if a little rainy, sunset would just not let us go :)

I quite have the luck for bad weather, whenever I go for a photo trip. Strange that before I started with photography, each trip was filled with great weather. Or maybe I just don’t remember correctly anymore :). But also in Paris, I had few days of rain and heavy clouds. But I still try to take photos also in those conditions, trying to make the best of it. I know I wont visit Paris again for some time, so I want to have as many photos as I can :)

I took this shot a little time before sunset. I was hoping for the sky to clear out a little (as it was quite windy) but instead I got heavy rain.

The moment before the storm

A little different view of the Eiffel tower, this time through one of the glass panels of the Wall of Peace (Le Mur pour la Paix). I don’t take credit for thinking of taking the photo like this, as I seen a similar shot by A.G. Photographe.

This is a single exposure, edited in Photoshop.
Shattered Tower

A week spend in Paris taking photos, is just not enough. I still have a huge list of places I want to go there and some of those I visited I definitively need to revisit. And the list get bigger and bigger. Same with the Arc De Triomphe. I like the photos I got, but I still wan to go up and take a nice sunset shot from there. Maybe next time :)

Blue hour at the Arc De Triomphe

A nicely lit Eiffel tower, during the blue hour. Something one could take photos of for a long time. You can see there are some additional parts to it on the photos, as the first floor is currently under reconstruction. But it’s good that there are not so different from the tower, so you can’t even see them that much.
