J’aime Paris en noir et blanc


I’ve been so extremely busy since my trip to Paris last month, that I never found the time to post pics on the blog. I missed the interaction with my blog followers 🙂 I’m back!

Here are a few stolen moments from the streets of Paris this Fall…

Which do you prefer?

  1. Bonjour Valérie
    Je viens de recevoir votre livre « street photograph » Dommage qu’il n’existe pas en français. je vais prendre le temps d’en extraire tous les trésors d’inspiration qu’il contient. On a dû vous demander 1000 fois : pour cette série, quels sont vos réglages ACROS sur le X100F ? Merci de nous faire partager votre vision de la photo. Je repars dans les méandres de votre blog.

    • Thanks Wolfgang. Interesting because actually I like my shadows to be deep and I don’t mind blown-out highlights, especially in silhouette or semi-silhouette situations. In street photography, what’s behind the subject can be just as distracting as what’s in front of it. I don’t believe that street photography should even aim at perfection, life on the streets is not perfect and it’s often the imperfections that make the photograph special. This is a snapshot taken through a tinted window from a dark room looking into the bright mid-day light, any processing would look very unnatural in my opinion. As I always tell my students “It’s not because you can bring details out of the shadows that you should. If too often breaks the mood of the photograph.” My two cents 😉 Thanks for stopping, please visit again!


  2. Can´t say which one is my Favorit. Every single pic is so beautiful and perfect related to storytelling and composition. There is so much to learn for me.


  3. I love your snaps! I just received a Fujifilm X100F for my birthday. I can’t wait. Looking at your photography gives me inspiration. Thank you for sharing.


  4. As always, simple beautifully captured moments! I was able to visit Paris for the first time ever this month. This time last week (give or take 9 hours) I was in the Jardin du Palais Royal people watching and capturing moments. The experience has given me greater appreciation for what you give us.

  5. When I see street photography like yours, I always say I should try it. Not that I think just anyone can do it. Well, they can, I guess. But not as well as you. I love so many of these. But I think my favorite is the silhouette! I think! 🙂
