We're going to explore the Citadel at Carcassonne, through your camera or smartphone lens! We'll kick things off by talking about the principles of great photography, but without any of the unnecessary jargon that comes with it, and we'll look at what we think makes a perfect photo. Our tour will work from the Pont Vieux (old bridge) through the Bastide, and up to the gorgeous Citadel, pausing at various points to reflect on a new aspect of photography, and then jumping behind the lens to try them out. We'll walk along the cobbles of 'les lines', finding spots to learn about black and white photography, landscape, portrait and action shots. The two-hour tour will move to the busier streets of the Citadel, and we'll move to the Porte Narbonnaise for a final view and summary. Our online community is accessible to all those taking part, and details of this will be offered to participants, at the end. We're Instagram friendly! Our tour is for photography beginners, for those with a real passion for taking snaps, and for those that know a thing or two about cameras. All welcome!
We'll visit Port Vieux, with the best overall views of the Citadel, and move up, along the cobbles, to Porte Aude, and into the oldest part of the structure. From there we will work along to the Basilica, and around to the parts of 'les lices' occupied by most tourists, before descending slightly into some hidden, quieter parts which present great views across the new town, and we will then to Port Narbonnaise, where our tour finishes.
Camera (SLR/mirrorless, etc) or Smartphone with built-in camera
