Video: Reviewing the city shoot

Male: So, it has been three days now, and this neighborhood in North Beach in San Francisco continuously amazed me. We were everywhere in those three days. We went to the top of Coit tower, we've been down alleys, we have been in restaurants, we have been in tiny shops. So no, I can't wait to get home, open up the computer and start editing. I got a lot of work, a lot of editing to do. A lot of post processing. All those people I met on the streets I promised them copies of the images, too.

Viewers: in countries Watching now:

When you're traveling, you sometimes want to spend a day or two exploring the neighborhood where you're staying—just walking around with your camera, absorbing the neighborhood's personality, and assembling a collection of photos that, together, form a portrait of the neighborhood. These photos are a great way to bring your experiences home to share.

In this course, photographer and teacher Mikkel Aaland explores one of the oldest and most beautiful neighborhoods of San Francisco: North Beach, home to iconic architecture, beautiful vistas, delicious food, and more than a few interesting people. He explores the area on foot over a three-day period, taking you up hills, inside restaurants and shops, and into encounters with people on the street. Along the way, learn how to take advantage of natural light, shoot a city at night, pack and prep for travel shoots, and enhance your images in post-production.

Reviewing the city shoot

Male: So, it has been three days now, and this neighborhood in North Beach in San Francisco continuously amazed me. We were everywhere in those three days. We went to the top of Coit tower, we've been down alleys, we have been in restaurants, we have been in tiny shops. So no, I can't wait to get home, open up the computer and start editing. I got a lot of work, a lot of editing to do. A lot of post processing. All those people I met on the streets I promised them copies of the images, too.

So I've got some emailing to do. and then I can, when I'm really excited about is taking all my work, all these pictures and showing them to my friends. And, and hey giving them the experience that I had, giving them a taste for this wonderful neighborhood. And it's going to be so satisfying to see their faces as they see the pictures that we took on the streets, and shops, and top of Coit Tower. it, it, it's really been a great three days and I'm really happy with what we ended up with.
