You will have many different subjects to compose on and photograph. For a start, you will have a simple but rich colour scheme, which is pure white combined with yellow, blue or red. Most of the little houses are like this. Then you have the texture of the tiles that cover all the houses and they make a wonderful contrast with the white of their walls.
You will be composing with lines, mostly diagonals and verticals. The medieval wall itself is actually more interesting as a place to photograph than to be photographed. On the other hand, the medieval castle is one of the landmarks. If we are lucky enough to have some well defined clouds, we will end the tour with an even bigger smile.
Should you have a tripod and some ND filters, we can climb the wall and try some wide-angle photos with a long exposure, hoping to wipe out all the other visitors. Moving away from the main streets is also a good idea, because there is always a quiet corner to play around and try some new perspectives.
Obidos is normally full of flowers, so if you like macro photography, we can add that theme to your portfolio. There is also a bookstore that can be an exceptional challenge, almost like a workshop about b&w photography. We will see, we will improvise and do our best. Always.
Please go to PINTEREST which is organized by boards and check the Obidos one. You can also browse INSTAGRAM to check the overall quality of the photos we do, with a different perspective on how to approach photography.
