Live Class – Paris Live Photo Editing and More!

Watch me edit this live

I decided to throw in a bonus for Day 2 of the online class that starts this weekend on the Midnight In Paris page! Each day you’ll learn a lot about photography from me and Miss Aniela. You’ll learn landscape, HDR, post-processing tricks, and even the special tricks that Miss Aniela employs with her models.

At the end of the Q&A session for day 2, I’ll be editing this photo below from beginning to end!

Time Lasts Forever in Paris Oh Paris! Le sigh…These were not the ideal shooting conditions, as idyllic as the scene might appear. This is all handheld, btw, no tripod, and here’s the rest of the sad tripod story.To get to this spot, you have to walk to the top of the Arc de Triomphe. My first few times there, I did not even know you could get to the top! I felt quite dumb when I found out you can walk up about 20,000 stairs to get here.Once I got up there, I staked out a position with my tripod, and then Frenchy McFrenchface came over and told me I could not use my tripod. I explained that I was an arteeeest, and surely he would in the 19th century no one asked the impressionists to put their easels away. This was a losing argument, although I still think it’s a pretty good one. It will work one day, and I won’t give up this line of persuasion.- Trey RatcliffClick here to read the rest of this post at the Stuck in Customs blog.

Daily Photo – The Colors of the Museum

Right before the in-person Midnight In Paris event, we took the class on a private photowalk to my favorite museum in the world! We ended up spending several hours here. I didn’t even get in trouble for my tripod this time!

I have soooooo many photos of this place. I’m trying to hold back and not post them all, even though I want to! 🙂 We’ll just both have to wait, I guess…

    Love the details of this – sooo awesome! The class sounds like a lot of fun!! 🙂

  • The photo from the top of the Arc de Triomphe is beautiful. I photographed from the same spot, but during the middle of the day. Your photo has really inspired me to try for an evening session. Thanks Trey!

  • This would be so cool, to see your editing in sequence. BY the way, it would be more awesome if you show us some easy 2 minute post processing tricks for Photos! Thanks

  • Great photo, Trey!! Makes me want to go there!! Enjoy your Wednesday 🙂

    I like that idea – 2-minute-tricks ! 🙂

  • Hey Big Trey – If I have to miss some of the class will there be files to view later in the club house?

  • Yes, we’ll get you the files – not likely in the Clubhouse, but you can email me at [email protected].

    The Museum is amazing, I spent a hole afternoon there strolling around and taking pictures. It has a kind of Jules Verne environment and the smell of old and wood is very cosy.

    I definitely recommend a visit there if you are in Paris.
