I shot these pictures in Paris in November 2016, with a telephoto lens : My Sony A7R2 and a Sony G Master 70-300mm . It was a very interesting experience because usually I shoot street photography with a 50mm lens or a 24-70mm. A long lens gives you a different perspective and you can shoot with a different state of mind. You see things that you would not see otherwise. I edited them in Lightroom, and I choose black and white because it helps to focus on the subject, there is less distraction.
Paris in black and white has a unique look and it enhances the romantic aspect of the city.

I was walking around l’Ile-Saint-Louis in Paris, coming from Notre-Dame Cathedral when I saw this amazing procession of vintage Citroen 2 CV. This car is an emblem, a mythical vehicule that french people love and represent a period of our history. It is no longer produced, some collectors still drive them, and apparently you can rent them from this company, Paris Authentic. This day a group of tourists were enjoying a ride in Paris with these beautiful cars which seemed to be in a good shape and well maintained. I’m glad to see that this company is carrying on our tradition and maintaining our cultural heritage in this field.
I shot these pictures with a Sony A7R2 and a Sony G lens FE2470mmF2.8GM, edited in Lightroom.
Paris is beautiful in April, the beginning of spring. The weather is usually nice, sometimes rainy which gives to the city a romantic mood. Street Photography in black and white seems the best way to show the atmosphere and the beauty of the capital of France.
I shot most of the pictures in the Quartier Latin (Saint-Germain, Saint-Michel, Odeon, Ile-Saint-Louis) and Le Marais . I used a Sony A7R2 and the prime Zeiss lens FE55mmF1.8 and edited the pictures in Lightroom.
Montmartre and Place des Tertres are the most typical places in Paris. This is were you can see and live the real Parisian way of life, with the cafés, the restaurants, the artists, the long stairs with the lamps, amazing views etc…
Not far from there, are the Basilic of the Sacré Coeur and Place des Abesses with the Saint-Jean-de-Montmartre church.
Enjoy the visit!
