RichFearon Photography | Couples on Bench (2 of 3) | Paris

Couples on Benches Photography Series

Couples on Bench Photography Series …. As I mentioned in my last post, I am trying out taking photographs in Black and White and I know that two of these are in colour…. but let me explain.

I shoot in Raw format with my Nikon D5300. I set the camera to take these shots in Monochrome Colour Profile … and went out to capture people enjoying the sunshine. When I returned home and opened these shots in Lightroom they previewed in Black and White and then changed to Colour when I opened them.

So I had both Colour and Black and White shots to choose from and I knew when I took the shot that there was something to it. So I have posted all three here, with different crops and one in Black and White.
I did ask the couple closest to the camera their permission to take these photographs, which isn’t always possible with street photography, but otherwise I don’t know their story except that they seem to be enjoying the sun and their lunch, in the Jardin des Champs-Élysées.

I am posting these on Twitter and Instagram and probably Reddit to get some feedback, so if you are on any of those social channels please let me know your thoughts. I am loving hearing what people think of my shots… good and bad.


RichFearon Photography | Ladies on Steps | Paris

Ladies on Steps Photography Series

Ladies on Steps Photography …. I took this series of photographs at La Defense, the financial district of Paris. I had just finished a photography session for a new client, Schlumberger, as I walked back towards the metro I noticed the steps and the shadows, so I sat down and watched. I hadn’t intended to take pictures but the scene just really interested me.

I’d like to say I got out my Nikon D5300 with lens here, but I had just packed it all away and I had my iphone in my hand. So these three shots are all taken with my old iphone 5c. Still a great little camera and more importantly it was in my hand and ready to capture the moment.

I posted these three shots on social media (Twitter and Instagram) and got some great comments and feedback, so check them out to see which one got the most votes, like and comments!

My editing and taking of photos has slowed recently with the French school holidays and having three children to manage. I love being able to spend time with my family but I am struggling to balance the two things at the moment. Also, we are embarking on moving out off Paris, so posts and photos may get a little sporadic, I will however try my best to keep the content coming on a regular basis.
