Back in the day, when I opened my first portrait studio in Lima, this Pavilion was where we would bring the brides & grooms for their outdoor outdoor session. A lot has changed in professional photography since those days. But, I bet that the local pros still use this area in the same way we did. The technology may change (a lot), but the basics of a good image remain the same, Subject, Light & Location…..and the technical skill to render them effectively. The Arches remain. If I was still in town, I am sure that I would have the children / grandchildren of the original families and brides asking to be photographed at this location. Ah, the benefits of a studio background.
If you are interested in learning the skills necessary to become a professional photographer, remember that I give lessons. The next term starts the first week in August.
