Street Photography in Paris : le Marais,Odeon, Notre-Dame, St Michel, St Germain

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.

Vintage cars Citroen 2 CV in Paris at Notre Dame Cathedral

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.

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.
