Finding New Perspectives to Photograph Antigua Guatemala

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; San Francisco El Grande Church in Antigua Guatemala

Believe it or not, this was one of the coldest mornings thus far during this Winter season, 8C/46F, yet one of the most beautiful morning with cloud-free skies and lots of spectacular light. You really ought to come to Antigua Guatemala during the Winter season, it’s quite possibly the most fabulous time to visit.

One the things I like to share during the Antigua Photo Walks and always, it is to look for new and unique perspectives, especially for places that are highly photographed. For instance, Antigua Guatemala has to be the most often photographed site in Central America, yet one can still find new perspectives or at least less common vistas of the most photographed places such as the Arco de Santa Catarina, La Merced Church or San Francisco El Grande church. If you would like to learn how to find new angles for the often-photographed sites, book a photo walk with next time you visit Antigua Guatemala.

“Learn about the city and photography”

I just thought Rudy was going to take us around La Antigua to take pictures. I was very impressed with his short presentation before we got started. I learned more about photography in that 15 minutes than I learned my whole life. For someone like myself that just enjoys taking pictures to document my travels, the simple tips he provided were extremely helpful. I also like learning about the history of the city and the buildings, Rudy Giron was very knowledgeable. The morning was well spent with Rudy. I also liked that he was not a camera snob. He worked with all of us, even someone like me who just has a simple point and shoot camera. I highly recommend this photo walk.
