The tour starts from the entrance of La Pedrera (Casa Mila).
As you walk down Paseo de Gracia and Las Ramblas to Plaza Catalunya, you will photograph street performers, pet sellers, strolling locals and tourists. Barcelona is a city where people live outdoors.
One of Barcelona’s major attraction is its magnificent architecture. From Roman remains to its modernist buildings, you can see Barcelona’s history set in stone. In particular you will see the outstanding contribution of architect Antoni Gaudi as you photograph the outside of two of his masterpieces - La Pedrera (Casa Mila ), a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Casa Batlo. Casa Milà is an apartment building with a fanciful aura. Wavy walls made of rough-chipped stone suggest fossilized ocean waves, while doors and windows look like they are dug out of sand. The stone façade of Casa Batlo is decorated with coloured glass fragments, ceramic circles, and mask-shaped balconies, while the undulating, scaled roof is reminiscent of a dragon's back.
Another of Barcelona’s famous attractions is its gastronomy. You will experience the colours, taste and smells of La Boqueria, the best food market in Barcelona. Here, you have an ideal opportunity to learn and experiment in shooting in low light and metering for different subjects.
Arrive at the Barri Gotico, the old part of town and walk along the original Roman road between medieval walls to photograph the narrow streets and town squares.
Finally, at Paseo de Borne near Parque Ciudella, if you have brought a digital camera your guides will give you a critique of some of the photos that you have taken.
At the end of the session your photographer-guide will review some of the photos taken. You will have learnt the basics of composition, the importance of light in photography, how to take balanced and attractive images, and simple techniques to take "creative" images.
The tour ends at Paseo de Borne.
