No one would truly believe you went to Paris without capturing the iconic Eiffel Tower landmark.
One of the best spots to capture images of the Eiffel Tower is from Trocadéro. Here you’ll find a vast open square with stunning intricate patterns on the paving which you can use to border your image. Also, from this spot, you should head down the steps towards the Eiffel Tower, where you’ll find a prominent water feature to also use in your shots. It is a well worth getting up early and heading to Trocadéro in time for sunrise, not only for the spectacular views but also to avoid the crowds as it’s one of the most popular tourist locations in the city. Truly Instagram royalty upon your feed!
Streets of Montmartre
The streets of Montmartre are a pearl, and it’s a must-visit area when in Paris. The winding roads are magical, packed with striking architecture, cobbled pavement, funky shops and magnificent facades. To top it off, you have the superb Sacré-Cœur church, which you’ll see dominating the horizon as you explore the area. Montmartre is a top Instagram and photography spot and shouldn’t be missed on your visit to the city.
The Sinking House
While exploring the Montmartre neighbourhood, an essential destination to put on your agenda is “The Sinking House” (not an official name!). In truth, the building isn’t actually sinking-it’s just an incredible illusion where you angle your lens and use a vertical grass hill to make it appear that way. It’s super cool to photograph and certainly will catch your followers’ attention.
View from Arc de Triomphe
An ideal location for pictures is from the Arc de Triomphe, which offers you endless panoramic views such as towards La Défense, the Eiffel Tower and every other direction. Head to the landmark around sunset and see the lively night atmosphere unfold in front of your eyes.
Aside from substantial tourist attractions, pay attention to details in Paris, and you will not be disappointed. Throughout Paris are various indoor passageways with a favourite being the beautiful Galerie Vivienne. It certainly feels very French chic inside, and it makes for original pictures.
Last but not least head to the Louvre; one of the world’s most famous galleries and home to the Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci. It goes without saying, the exterior glass pyramid makes for the most photogenic reflective perspectives and it looks incredible both day and night. Here you can try perfecting your long exposure!
