JOURNEY TO THE NIMES
Kursus Fotografi – Here is the beautiful amphitheater in Nimes, a part of French. The city originates its name from that of a spring in the Roman village. The city was located on the Via Domitian, a Roman street built in 118 BC which linked Italy to Spain. Nimes is well known for its textiles. This amphitheatre is also known as the Arena of Nîmes, a Roman amphitheatre found in the French city of Nîmes. It was built around 70 AD and remodelled in 1863 to serve as a bull ring. The Arenas of Nimes is the site of two annual bull fights during the Feria de Nimes, and it is also used for other public events. The arena encircles an oval central space 133 meters long by 101 meters wide. It is ringed by 34 rows of seats supported by a curved structure. It has a capacity of 16,300 audiences and since 1989 has a portable cover and a heating system. I visited this place in 2011 and could never forget the arena. So many great architecture design in this country and I strongly recommend this place for your next holiday.
LANDSCAPE PHOTO TIPS
There are two interesting area to take a photo in the arena. The first is shooting the outside building and finally go to the highest row and take a photo of the whole arena. Make sure you use wide lens to cover all of the scenery. The best configuration is to use very small aperture such as f/16 to f/22 in order to get the sharpest photo of all building. And finally, do not forget to bring your tripod.
I took this photo with special HDDR (High Definition Dynamic Range) technique. This is my special photo technique to get the clearest and breathtaking image.
