Atomic GPS – Paris Locations

Many photographers don’t share their photo-shoot locations, but I’m really happy to – and after a few trips last year, many people have asked me the best places to shoot on location.  So in my Atomic GPS series, I’m going to share my shoot locations, image by image for you all.

In a Haze – Atomic Tips


I get asked a lot ‘how do you get that hazy summer look to images?’…  Here’s how to without post processing:

1.  Forget all the usual rules about the light facing your subject.

2. Check when the sun is rising or going down – and get yourself out around 40 mins before that time.

3. Place your subject between the sun rise / sunset and yourself, with the sun behind the subject.

4. Play around with your settings to achieve the type of haze you want – the above image was taken around 20 mins before sunset in Paris, with a shutter speed of 1/125, and f5.0 and no flash.  You could use flash to achieve a more halo effect around the subject, or increase your ISO to create a bright ethereal effect.

5.  Have fun breaking the rules!  Shoot using the settings YOU like the results from 🙂

Happy shooting!
