About this activity
The Forbidden City and Tian'anmen Square
Photograph the heart of Beijing during an afternoon of infinite (photographic) richness... Infinite as the Forbidden City and its labyrinth of palaces, inhabited by 24 Chinese emperors throughout history. Its 72 hectares are very popular for an obvious reason that you will discover! On the other hand, I will be able to guide you into his less "obvious" corners and find more original photo angles.
In front of the Forbidden City is the famous Tian'anmen Square. The late afternoon will be dedicated to the Square of the Gate of Heavenly Peace - its literal name. You can photograph the particular event of the flag ceremony; a fascinating spectacle, to be photographed at least once in your life!
The photo opportunities on the square will be many and varied; between reporting, architecture and street photography. I am responsible for guiding you and sharing his or her experience of the place with you.
While many photographic opportunities will arise, I will be there to help you succeed with your images; I will advise you on technique, composition, and light; I will also provide you with my personal shooting tips!
IMPORTANT: price does not include tickets to enter the Forbidden city.
