What better way to welcome spring to Paris than as a photographic explorer. Whether you’re a newcomer or a long-time resident, there is always a unique adventure waiting just around the corner. This course will take us off the beaten path, from Belleville to Batignolles, from cemeteries to spring gardens, from traditional Paris to the 21st century. There are unique subjects to discover and secrets to unearth in every part of Paris

We’ll start each class in a café of our chosen quartier to discuss the photo tips of the day (exposure, composition, how to connect with our subjects). Then, we’ll explore the area, on a mission to really SEE the light, colors, characters, details, lines, forms, and shapes. You’ll get hands-on practice with your camera and have your technical questions answered on the spot. We’ll end each class (yes, at a café again!) reviewing the images from the previous week’s expedition to learn from our successes and challenges. Join us as we discover the REAL Paris via our own personal artistic perspective.

Instructor:  Meredith Mullins is an internationally exhibited photographer and popular photography instructor; a winner of the 2009 Grand Concours Photo sur Paris, 2010 PX3 Competition, and 2010 Worldwide Gala Photo Awards; a finalist for the 2010 Julia Margaret Cameron Award; and author of the award-winning book “In a Paris Moment.”
