Munich Photo Walk Aug. 18th

Client Photos 1 Comment

I went on a photo walk with a pretty experienced client last week (admin of Dublin Information), and came up with some really good tips for him. Here are a few of the photos, taken with a Canon EOS 500D and two zoom lenses.

This first one is an example of using depth of field to emphasize the subject – in this case, some tasty summer cherries. Look at that nice bokeh! I especially like the blur effect as the eyes follow the long board making up the lower edge of the fruit stand.

Street signs are a great way to remember details about a city you’ve visited. This one would really bring back memories of walking along Kaufingerstraße, Munich’s pedestrian-zone shopping street. Nice composition helps make up for the cloudy day.

Finally, a great interior photo of the low-light Asamkirche, showing the value of a mini tripod.
Most churches don’t allow flash, and the flash wouldn’t illuminate such a big space anyway! You need some better techniques than “Auto” mode + flash to get this shot.

Thanks to my client for letting me use these photos on the site. Keep on shooting!
