Paris – Stuck in Customs

Daily Photo – More from Paris

A few times each night, they alight this super hardcore searchlight from the top of the Eiffel Tower and it scans the skyline. Getting a solid shot of it wasn’t the easiest thing in the world because I had to make sure the shutter speed was fast enough but keep the ISO high enough to make sure you could get all the rest of the light. Okay, camera nerd talk over.

Interactive Art in Paris

Daily Photo – Interactive Art in Paris

I don’t know if this is a new installation or not but I’ve never seen it until my most recent trip to Paris. It’s less than a 5-minute walk from the Louvre and I guess I just never walked this way before. I do like how a lot of the art in the world now is interactive… I probably got a lot of that appreciation from Burning Man. Sometimes they look kind of dangerous… I can only imagine the injuries!

Paris at Dusk

Daily Photo – Paris at Dusk

It’s a fun challenge to walk around the Eiffel Tower and try to get photos without tourists in them. I mean, getting some tourists in the shot is not a bad thing at all, since it kind of goes with the territory. In most cases, I would recommend finding some shrubbery and trees and getting the camera down quite low to the ground with a wide-angle lens.

Daily Photo – The Louvre on a Summer Day

I took this one with quite a wide-angle lens, but I like how everything is a bit warped and strange. I believe I took this back in the Nikon days with my 14-24mm lens. Man… that still is one of my favorite lenses of all time and I wish I had the equivalent on the Sony!

Here’s the above piece hanging in the home of one of my collector’s homes in Beverly Hills. He actually has two pieces hanging in here and another two in two more of his homes. As with all collectors, I am very thankful to him!

A Classic Street Scene in Paris

Midnight in Paris

I just rewatched this movie on the plane for the fifth time and it still holds up. It’s easily in my top 3 Woody Allen movies and if you haven’t seen it, get it way up there on your list. Plus, I found the whole thing to be super funny… my favorite character is definitely Hemingway.

Daily Photo – A Classic Street Scene in Paris

In that same romantic sense, I like to roam the streets of Paris at night in search of scenes like this. They are all over the place, but it’s best to find the narrow streets like here in Montmartre. I wait around for nice color combinations in the background and with the characters walking around.

Another Angle on the Museum

The Parisian Museum of Evolution

Today, I thought I’d show you the same place from two different perspectives. This is one of the works from our Fine Art Series 1 that has been sold out (thanks awesome collectors – glad you are happy!).

Daily Photo – Another Angle on the Museum

I just can’t get enough of this museum! I took hundreds and hundreds of photos in here. Choosing the best was a labor of love. I must admit that I like the one above much better, but it is still interesting to get a slightly different perspective on the same place.

Midnight at the Chateau

Midnight in Paris Tutorial

Want to get the whole tutorial for Midnight in Paris? It’s a great and full collab I did. Here’s the video preview!

Daily Photo – Midnight at the Chateau

What a cool idea this was, if I do say so myself! I decided to do a workshop right outside of Paris and we rented this whole chateau for a few days. It wasn’t actually as expensive as you might think. It was a little weird for a few reasons. One is that a family was living in one of the corner rooms, but we never saw them. Also, about half of the rooms were abandoned and there was all kinds of creepy stuff inside. It made it even more creepy when we pictured that the family was living in one of those creepy rooms.

Be sure to visit our workshops page to find out what’s happening next. In this little promo video below, you’ll see quite a bit of footage from Africa!

A Street Scene From Paris

I’ve had a ton of fun going back into my unprocessed back catalog and re-processing them with some of these latest tools. In today’s adventure, you’ll see a fairly “harsh” (maybe that is too harsh of a word) treatment of this street scene from Paris.

Daily Photo – The Lonely Dunes

Here’s one of my favorite (and rather simple) photos from Namibia. The deserts there are so beautiful, and it is a little confusing to figure out where to shoot. It all sort of looks the same, in a strange, flowing way. So, I found this all to be a particularly interesting challenge… actually I think everyone at our Africa workshop did!

Art Unveiling Partay!

Becoming An Artist Episode 4

I hope you’re enjoying these! They were a lot of fun to make.

Daily Photo – Art Unveiling Partay!

A few weeks ago, one of my collectors had a fun party at her house so people could experience her new art! This is a quick mobile-phone shot I got with my Pixel 3 (not bad, eh)? That shows off how massive this piece is. You should see it at night! I’ll have to go back and get a photo of it then. Anyway, this particular one is now sold out, so that’s pretty cool. All 3 are gone… one was purchased by an NFL player, and I think we’ll have a party there soon too! See more about the fine art at www.TreyRatcliff.com.
