Bonjour! Sorry I haven’t been able to post more. We’ve been shooting from morning until late at night, literally non-stop on the go, and by the time we make it back to our rooms we’re just falling down beat.

Here’s a quick shot taken during our shoot out at the palace of Versailles, hand-held with a 14-24mm lens. What an amazing place. Off to start today’s final day of shooting, so I gotta run. More on Monday. Have a great weekend everybody. :)

  1. First one! ;)
    Hey Scott, thanks for the great pictures from France, I hope we’ll see some more when you got back?
    But I’ve yet another question about Lightroom. When I use the Lens Correction in my LR3, I have only very few profiles for JPEGs, which is a big problem for me because my main lens is not supported (only in RAW mode, which I don’t use very often because my camera becomes so sloooow). There’s also no profile available in the Lens Profile Downloader. But when I go into PS CS5 (Filters -> Lens Correction), it uses the RAW-profiles to correct my JPEGs. Is there any way to make the RAW-profiles usable for JPEGs without switching to PS everytime which is quite annoying?
    I hope you or someone else around here can answer …

    Greatings from Germany!


  2. Have a fabulous weekend too and enjoy the quais de seine, montmartre & co. Can’t wait to see more of your shots!!! Greetings from the french part of Switzerland this time ;)

  3. Hello Scott,

    just one question. How the hell do you manage to haven’t any tourist on your photo.

    Great job !

    •  3 tips:

      1 – Yell ” Fire !” :-D
      2- Take multiple exposures on a tripod, import and stack the shots as layers, reveal part as each layer that is tourist-free
      3- Take an extra long exposure (some minutes) if they are moving in and out, it should work, if you still got a blur, let’s pretend it’s the Ghost of Versailles

  4. Scott, great interior shot at the palace. The detail in the workmanship is incredible and overwhelming and this is only a small portion of the building. I hope you will have more pics to share with NAPP members on your return. 

  5. Great shots, as usual, Scott.  Since you’re there “on assignment”, as it were, with Jay Maisel, what gear  did you bring on this trip?  And what did you pack it in?  Same as the India trip?

  6. Looks Zentangle inspired

  7. Tough duty, but someone has to do it. Thanks for taking one for the team, Scott. :-)

  8. Wow, that staircase looks awfully simile to the one which takes me to my bedroom!! ;-)
    Enjoy your weekend in Paris!

  9. I love my 14-24, go no where without it!
