Departure to Cassis and its surroundings
We left for the “Crêtes” road, which is located between Cassis and La Ciotat, I’am delighted, I haven’t been there for many years . We arrive at a parking lot which luckily is not very busy which is not the case in high season. We are almost alone ! We equip ourselves with our photography equipment or our smartphone and walk a few meters on the dirt road … and here, surprise, a breathtaking view is offered to us, it is magic! We overlook the city of Cassis and its entire bay. At this height ( beware of vertigo!) we can see the Calanques massif in the distance. Each participant is invited to walk around and take pictures as they wish. Patrico is there to advise us and explain the settings on our respective cameras.
After a long time admiring this incredible landscape, we leave and continue our journey. This time, it is towards the village of Castellet, a few kilometres away, a typical village of the region where colours and Provençal atmosphere are mixed. After strolling around the village for a while, we head back to Cassis where we stop for lunch in a restaurant located on the port. Patrico takes the opportunity to give us technical advice, framing, speed, light, colorimetry or depth of field, nothing is left to chance!
After lunch everyone is free to walk the streets of this pretty little town and we try to put into pratice all the precious tips given by our photographer. When we get back, he takes the time to look at our shots and tells us what goes well and what doesn’t. Each of us benefits from personalized advice during this debriefing.
