Paris when it Sizzles

Our adventure in Paris continued. After brunch at a nice little French café we continued walking along the river Seine, heading towards the Louvre. We stopped at many beautiful locations on the way, but we also found a few, should I say, more unconventional places for tourists to linger. This is the second part of the Paris blog posts, you can find the first part “Paris is always a good idea” here.

Annie Magee under a bridge in Paris
Annie Magee under Pont Alexandre III. This bridge provided some beautiful light, and with a white dress Annie stands out in the photo. When we arrived there was no-one there taking photos, but after a while people started stopping to take photos.

Lucy McMahon doing a ballet pose on a bridge in Paris
Lucy McMahon on Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor which is a walk bridge over the river Seine. The bridge provided some strong compositional lines for us to play with and by shooting from the lower level Lucy’s pose is clearly visible against the blue sky.
Beautiful portrait of Genevieve McMahon

Annie Magee on point in Paris
After crossing the Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor we started to make our way towards the Louvre, but there were so many distractions on the way, like this beautiful alley of trees.

Annie made a new friend. This is Marlowe, part Border Collie and part Czech Wolf. He and his owners were walking past us and we asked if it would be alright for him to join our photoshoot for a bit.
Genevieve and Lucy doing a two person pose
Genevieve and Lucy McMahon. We really liked this alley of trees, so played around with several poses.

Annie Magee on Pont des Artes. Here I have switched to a larger aperture which gave a shallower depth of field. I ended up enhancing the blur a bit in photoshop as well.
Photo with all there in front of Notre Dame
We made it to Notre Dame. The longest photoshoot I have done was coming to an end.
