25/08/2018 – Bebelplatz – Architecture / Classical

Classical Berlin: Bebel Platz, Neue Wache, Gendarmenmarkt

Although much of it has been largely reconstructed due to the effects of WWII, the area still evokes a tremendous sense of period, particularly the Gendarmenmarkt, probably the most picturesque public square in Berlin with the Französische Dom, Das Konzerthaus und the Deutscher Dom all showing classical Berlin off at its finest.

There’s also the Neue Wache, a sombre memorial to the victims of war and tyranny and Bebelplatz itself, with the State Opera, Humboldt university buildings and Hedwig’s cathedral, a magnificent building with a domed roof.

Photo opportunities:

This is the ideal location to capture some postcard type images (hyperfocal distance) of some of Berlin’s most iconic classical buildings.

Public transport:

This is a bring a camera and shoot event, suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced photographer, in fact anyone who wishes to improve their photography skills through practice, the main emphasis is on developing creative compositional skills rather than technical expertise.

If possible please bring 2 prints of previous work to the event, so that we all have something to pass around, discuss and critique during the refreshment break.
This service is available in all branches of Rossmann and prints can easily be made there and then in approximately 5 minutes – 13cm x 18cm Premium Fotoabzüge mit weißem Rand = €0,23 per print.
A tablet or smart phone is unfortunately not a suitable alternative.

If you have problems with PayPal, or don’t have a PalPal account because you still live in the 19th century, please bring it in cash.
