Night Photo Tour of Barcelona ★★★★★

i spent 3 incredible hours taking pictures under the tutelage of Gauvin. Besides getting some great photos, he taught me a lot about my camera which I didn't know about. Gauvin is very easy to spend time with. It was a highlight of my trip to Barcelona. I highly recommend taking a photo tour with Gayvin.

Discover Barcelona's beauty with the help of local knowledge ★★★★★

The experience started at a cafe next to the music conservatory, where we shared a cappuccino, reviewed my camera and discussed my knowledge of it and photography. I'm an amateur that hadn't practiced in some time. We had a quick refresher that covered everything that was needed for the tour to go over smoothly. Despite my rustiness, the whole experience felt very comfortable. My experience leaves me to believe that this would be appropriate for a wide range of photographers, from newbie to expert.

My guide was named Gauvin, a Barcelona local by way of France. I found him to be quite personable and easy to get along with. The two things I enjoyed most about Gauvin was that he had a particular style of photography (enjoying symmetry and dissymmetry that is found throughout the city) and that he had a knack for pointing out little details and places that I would have not noticed otherwise. On the first point, I would remiss not to mention that he did not impose this style on me, but I was very welcoming of it. I also enjoyed that he kept reminding me and quizzing me of my decision making throughout the tour, which helped to better learn some of the lessons learned.

All in all, this was a great experience and one that I recommend. Despite the weather being less than stellar, we were able to make the most of it, by working with reflections and such. One way in which this could be improved is by extending the tour to 4 hours rather than 3 hours. time flew by and we were a bit rushed to make it to the last area in which to take pictures. 3 hours totally works, and I suspect the average person would prefer 3 hours to 4 hours, but it would be a nice option to have.
