I was a little apprehensive about this tour given the bad weather the day of my tour and the fact that I was not a DSLR enthusiast (my wife is the generally the photographer of the family) coming into the tour, my experience was absolutely fantastic and I could not recommend it more to those interested in getting great photos of Paris and learning how to take better photos back at home. My guide and instructor, Brian Jannsen, was friendly and personable and an artist both with his camera and his ability to assess the knowledge of his student and provide instructions and guidance to quickly move you up the learning curve. While I entered not knowing much beyond the basics of aperture, shutter speed, etc., Brian quickly explained crucial concepts of focal length, walked me through many of my Canon 50D's settings, and taught me a great deal about framing the shot, using leading lines and the rule of 1/3's. By the end of the tour, I was looking at the picturesque landscapes, buildings and people of Paris completely differently, and trying to take what I had learned from Brian and share it with others. I hope to return to Paris again soon and bring my wife, and we will definitely sign up for another Better Paris Photos tour!
