The 24/10/2019 at 12:29

Let’s continue our Europe tour with the Spanish capital: Madrid. 

Madrid is without a doubt the most important touristic destination in Spain. Nothing surprising when we know the versatility of this wonderful Villa y Corte. 

Discover through its history, its architecture, and its flamboyant colors, a selection of original places to photograph if you go to the Spanish capital. 

 

Historic shots 

Debod Temple 

 

Gift from Egypt to Spain, this temple is an Egyptian wonder you shouldn’t miss photographing. 

This building, the most curious one in the Castilian city, is very photogenic with its spectacular view at sunset.

 

La Plaza de Oriente 

 

Make your photographs a work of art, thanks to this colorful and striking square. 

It offers you great shots during the day but it is more beautiful at night, when all lightened up. Our advice: Capture it with the Opera and the Palacio Real view. 

 

El Capricho 

 

This park is one of the most beautiful and unknown of Madrid. The perfect place to shoot landscape photos in macro. Change of scene, personalized and breathtaking shots assured. 

 

Gran Via

 

The most famous and maybe the most beautiful road of Spain. Its white buildings, juxtaposed and magnificent, are inviting to stroll. 

Take the Gran Via from the start to the end. The starting point is Metropolis House, unique in its style. 

Work on your perspective game thanks to the buildings and the surprising architecture. 

 

Get up high 

Circullo de Bellas Artes 

 

Take advantage of the city rooftops to capture the most beautiful view of the Gran Via. 

This lookout on the 7th floor of Madrid's gastronomic space of the Azotea del Círculo offers an incredible 360-degree view of the city. 

Cloudy weather or golden hour and a few applications of presets will allow you to get a shot worthy of a professional urban photograph.

 

Faro de Moncloa

 

Capture the panoramic view of Madrid from the Faro de Moncloa. This 92-metre lookout reveals a stunning view of a string of monuments - from Madrid al cielo-. Capture the beautiful architecture of Madrid: The Royal Palace, the Cathedral of Almudena or the building of Telefanica on the Gran Via... and capture the capital in panoramic photography.

Use a tripod to stabilize your shot in this high-rise location.

 

Mirador del Palacio Cibeles

 

This wonderful lookout crowns the great tower of the Cibeles Palace. From its summit, you can capture some of Madrid's most beautiful buildings, as well as panoramic views of the Paseo del Prado and Paseo Recoletos. 

Panning is about zooming and settings, once you've captured the item you want to put in town, take your time and capture. This lookout is an excellent playground to start the panoramas.

 

Estadio Santiago Bernabéu 

 

Enjoy a stay in the Spanish capital to support Real Madrid. 

It will be the opportunity to work your focal lengths and tame the focus on moving topics.

 These places as atypical as touristic will give your personal photos a special touch. Travel photos make wonderful decorative elements. Make this journey last with a professional gallery-quality print run.
