Photos from Sintra, Portugal and Moorish Castle

We are having a lot of fun here in Lisbon, Portugal this week working on our storytelling. We have taken some breaks like here where we went out to grab some snacks and on the way back stopped and got some photo of the landscape.

Here two of the students climbed on top of a van to shoot over the chainlink fence.

Here is one of the pastries we enjoyed while taking a break and learning more about the culture of Lisbon.

Later today we went over to Sintra, Portugal where we went to the Moorish Castle.  Here are some photos that I took while climbing around the castle.

Some of the tips I can tell you from our outing is to be sure you have your camera with you all the time and be ready for those special moments. I took with me on the excursion today the Fuji X-E2, 18-55mm and the 55-200mm. I also had two extra batteries which I did need one of them.

Most of the time I had the 18-55mm on the camera which let me shoot some semi wide-angle shots and then some portraits like of this lady in front of one of the shops.

I love using the 55-200mm to pick out some closeup shots of elements around the streets of Sintra, Portugal. You can isolate things from all the clutter of the streets.

I hope you enjoy some of the places we have been with our class on Storytelling this week. Later I hope to share some of the stories the student have put together this week. They are still interviewing people and editing their projects. Stay tuned.
