Marc, Gerard, Peter and Enric got together in Barcelona to share a long weekend and improve their photography skills with us. All of them using different cameras joined us at Plaça Real on saturday after a nice lunch. They were ready for walking across the Gothic quarter and the Old Jewish neighborhood making all types of questions and pictures, to understand those concepts that gave them some trouble when shooting alone.
These guys had a lot of fun, joking around and competing for the best picture of the city. Old friends together enjoy twice as much and learn faster. Their photocircuit ended inside a very crowded cathedral where WB and color were the main topic for questions.
Erin contacted us trough our website a couple of weeks ago. She was interested in an activity related to photography for her daughters while they stayed in Barcelona. She has two teenage girls one into fashion and the other one into photography, really eager to explore the city and a thirteen year old son. They got a 4 hour Photocircuit for the whole family.
We picked them up at their hotel by the sea, and walked to reach the Ciutadella Park, one of the greener spots in town then we went into the Borne quarter and explored streets and for the first time many small shops.
As we walked along the city, from the beach to the historical walled area, we explained tips and concepts about the camera, composition, sequences, light and movement to the girls. both using good cameras , one of them a reflex and the other one a digital compact one, but both very handy at the time of shooting.
We certainly enjoyed the day sharing a great conversation and images under the barcelona sun.
Last Sunday we went out with friends for brunch and spare time and found a couple nice places. One is the very photogenic Juicy Jones, a vegetarian restaurant in Calle Hospital where sandwiches and natural fruit & veggie juices make a great breakfast. the place is handpainted with colorful flowers and graffiti all over so you feel somewhere between a higway and a the beatles yellow submarine movie.
Then we walked across the city to the Old Roman Temple hidden in an apartment building backyard, near plaça st jaume, this a very quiet and singular spot where modern and classic definitively meet. For late lunch Pizza del Borne was a budget and tasty option, not Italian but Argentinian a wide variety of combinations will make you take 2 or 3 slices…
heading back home amazing graffitis all over the place where begging for a picture which they had.
