Having the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop is the first thing Donald and Maria asked me when we first met on Skype.
But sunrise in winter in France happens around 8:00AM. From that time until sunset, a lot of tourists enjoy most of the iconic spots. And having people hanging around on the photos background is something that I always try to avoid on our pictures!
This is where experience and Photoshop skills make a big difference between photographers. We do master guidance with clients AND editing with Photoshop 😉
I first asked Donald and Maria to pretend they were great dancers (which is not absolutely true but that was fun).
Then Maria’s two daughters joined them for a more classic pose.
It’s important to take advantage of all the combinations of people when photo-shooting a family.
