Over the past few years, the e-booklet that we use during our photography tours has continuously been evolving. We keep coming back and refining it, changing out old photos and improving the descriptions and text based on the demands of the guests we have on our tours. We initially made the notes only for ourselves as a reference material to use during the tours, but since then they have developed into so much more. Guests asked for a copy, and as a result, we kept adding more descriptive material until it became a fully fledged e-booklet, a mini manual to photography where we keep you abreast of all of the technical and creative aspects of photography. While we can not fit everything we know into a single PDF document, we do think we have managed to pack quite a punch into our 122-page booklet. We know it will serve as a useful memory jogger for what we learnt during the tour.
We’ve updated the e-booklet again, replacing images with more relevant and easy to understand instructions and tips. New chapter on ND filters and the difference between RAW and Jpeg. The entire booklet has been condenced and refined to make sure that you get all the information a modern photographer needs without the excess. It is compiled with insightful text, easy to understand graphics and real-world photography in Paris and the world to make sure you nail how to get the best bokeh or the sharpest images.
For those of you who have taken our tours, you should be familiar with the notes, and we hope this new improved version will serve you well. For those who are interested in taking a tour in Amsterdam, Berlin, Hong Kong, Lisbon, London, Melbourne, Milan, Prague, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo, Venice, Verona and of course Paris, it will give you a good indication about some of the topics we cover in our tours. And if you are just a photographer with no intentions of taking a tour, I hope you can learn a trick or two to keep you shooting straight.
