Night Photography – Quintessentially Paris
Night Photography – Quintessentially Paris. Whenever I think about Paris, I think about standing in this very spot. Over the years, this Café, “Le Recrutement” has become inextricably linked with my memories of photographing the city. On the first night that I arrived in 2014, I headed out in the rain to take photos of the Eiffel Tower. On my way over, I happened to walk down this very street. I noticed how the Eiffel Tower was perfectly framed by the café and the architecture that surrounds, so I took this shot. Now, this spot has become a bit of nostalgia moment for me. Every year when we visit, we make sure to come back to this very spot to grab another photo and enjoy a glass of champagne at Le Recrutement.

To capture this image, I took a single exposure with Canon 5D MK II and I used the Creative Flow Lightroom Presets and Brushes (Nightscape Collection). Finally, I combined the RAW file and my Lightroom version in Photoshop to finalize the shot.
