Midnight in Paris

I rarely take photos of Paris during nighttime, mostly because my camera is too heavy to lug around wherever I go but also because I might be the most paranoid person on this earth and don’t want to get anything stolen. So when my sister and dad (who thinks photography is just as much fun as I do) visited me here last week we decided to go for a little stroll all together before heading off to dinner. If our fingers and toes hadn’t died from the freezing cold I think we could have kept going all night long but instead we opted for Italian pizza and a few glasses of wine after and hour or two, which certainly wasn’t too shabby either.

If you think this city is pretty during daytime, you haven’t seen it during the evenings. I can never walk home during the night without falling in love with this city all over again. I think that’s when Paris’ magic really hits me.

    These are totally lovely. Are you using a 50mm for these shots? I always seem to struggle with B & W on non-film cameras.

      So funny that you said that because I struggled so hard with these actually (and I’m still not entirely happy). B&W is always so hard, if you don’t have a film camera as you say. Yes, I used the 50mm lens for these :)

    I think you just raised your photography to a new level. I encourage you to continue to shoot at night, these images have a elegant, mysterious quality that can only be captured at night.

    Your photos are so beautiful!!! It sounds and looks like a magical night. Did you happen to use a tripod to take these?

  • http://www.fleurishingblog.com Susan

    Lovely! I’m assuming you used a tripod? Just curious…I will be there in March and plan to do some night shooting! (and would love to meet)

    Love those night and black and white shots! Paris is beautiful, it doesn’t matter what time of the day or night, right?

    You should look into the Fuji X100s. That has quickly become my best friend in Paris, as I just can’t handle lugging my DSLR around everywhere (plus I worry it makes me a target for pickpockets). It’s really great in both low light and low DOF (goes to f2) and the photos are pretty great quality. And it’s small and light and cute!

  • Nhan

    I’ve recently joined the blogging world and discovered your blog. I’m sure you’ve been told thousands of times already but seriously, your photos are simply amazing, especially these ones.
    I look forward to many more!

    Beautiful shots! I agree w. another post.. takes me back to when I was there. Nothing beats wandering around Paris at night with a good group of friends. I remember walking one night around pont neuf when i saw the eiffel tower started to sparkle for the first time, literally took my breath away!

  • Paris, je t’aime
