I decided to dedicate this blogpost to anyone who loves Paris 🙂 and when you might visit one day, you’ll know where to go and take the most mesmerizing photos. Either for your memories or your blog! Paris is definitely one of the most photogenic cities I have ever seen and it takes years to discover it. I am not done yet myself:)
When I started my blog, I looked for some tips where to shoot in Paris but I didn’t find anything besides the usual overcrowded venues with tourist tips. Even though some are featured in my list, still – to find minimal yet eye catching back drops ain’t easy.
Now when I moved little further from Paris, I am a bit sentimental and I know when ever I am back, I will definitely come and get my inspiration dose here:
1.Palais Royal – it is my ultimate favourite, since I first walked in this magnificent space, I kept coming back ever since. I love the architecture, black and white stoops and pillars, the dominating bridge with such beautiful lamps and fence details. I can go on and on about it:)
2. Pont Alexandre III – This black and white bridge with gold details is the best to shoot itself, i think it is the most flattering for minimal backgrounds that draw a lot of attention at the same time.
3. Trocadero – there are numerous places to shoot the Eiffel Tower but my favourite is from the Trocadero. It is across the river from the Eiffel Tower and it offers a slightly elevated view (you can find few spots where you can get a good shot without any people even if it’s crowded). You can shoot the Eiffel Tower against the city skyline, and really get a feel for the scale of this construction.
4.Pont Neuf – This one is quite near to the Pont des Arts and for me it is one of the greatest locations where you can find view after view of the beauty of Paris.
5. The top of Montparnasse tower – In my opinion the best viewpoint of the city with Eiffel tower and also you get a great view of Montmartre.
6. Arc de Triomphe – it is a classic Parisian landmark, well worth taking the time to shoot there. My personal favourite location to do so is from the Champs Elysees but definitely go early morning if you don’t want many people in your shots.
7. The Montmartre stairs – one of the most famous locations in Paris to watch the sunset is on the steps and slope on the way to Sacre Coeur which is on top of Montmartre. The hill offers panoramic views but again – I would recommend avoid the weekend because it can get very jammed.
8. Musée d’Orsay – top floor gives you a great view of Montmartre and Sacre Coeur. Plus this cool giant clock? Probably not an outfit pic but definitely worth climbing up there:)
Et voilà – these are my tips and I hope you can use them one day when you come to this magical city!
