Naturally Paris is my favorite cities to photograph – especially at night. Therefore, if you are going to shoot Paris remember that a Tripod is a must.
As to what shoot at night, well there are so many places, its hard to narrow them down to just a few.. basically they’re everywhere and everything is lit very nicely (not overly lit – but well done). However I would highly recommend going up Montparnasse Tower for panoramic views of Paris.
Also keep in mind with photography in Paris, or anywhere for that matter, whether its day or night, that a wide lens will make the background appear further away and a longer lens will bring the background closer. Try to use this to your advantage especially when shooting portrait shots.
Lastly – Makes sure you bring comfortable walking shoes and find a comfortable method to carry your gear with you.
