MEXICO CITY PHOTO WALKS

These consist of 3-hour walks in a small group around some neighborhood of Mexico City, usually in the morning. We explore the area and learn about the history or culture, meet people, visit markets and taste the food and learn to see the photographic opportunities around us. To take more interesting photos, especially of well-known sites, we look for natural frames, vary our viewpoints, pay attention to foregrounds and backgrounds, fill the frame and use other ideas.
