X-Rite Coloratti Jens Petersen was joined by Thomas Kunz for an XritePhotoWalk in the historical center city of Cologne. Here’s Jens talking with participants in front of historic Cologne Cathedral. This XritePhotoWalk was conducted in German language. Many beautiful and historic options were available to photograph in the late afternoon light.  It was  a beautiful day in Cologne as Jens and the walkers enjoyed the day and got some great shots.

X-Rite Coloratti Vincent Versace met walkers on two mornings for XritePhotoWalks along the Rhine River and in Rhinepark in the heart of Cologne.  The early morning light was a beautiful backdrop for the photos.  Here Vincent speaks to the group as one member sets up to photograph flowers.

Both Jens and Vincent spoke with participants about their own shooting style, equipment, and tips for special situations.  Participants had opportunities to shoot, talk with the leaders, get information on color management from Thomas Kunz and Chris Halford of X-Rite and just enjoy the beautiful city of Cologne.

Check out this cool video of Vincent during the first of his XritePhotoWalks as he talks with participants about techniques for hand holding your camera for sharp pictures at low shutter speeds. The video is © Joan Vendrell http://www.joanvendrell.com.
