Cendrine Marrouat Photography: Pisa, Italy - YouTube

From www.youtube.com

Pisa is the capital city of the Province of Pisa and is nested in the beautiful region of Tuscany. Once a Roman colony and then a Christian bishopric, it became a flourishing commercial center in the 11th century and a center of woolen manufacturing two centuries later.

 

While it is famous worldwide for its leaning tower, it also has many historic churches and medieval palaces, as well as a 14th-century university and a Square of Miracles. And scientist Galileo Galilei was born there.

 

The origins of the city's name remains a mystery until today. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "Pisa lay by the sea until the 15th century, by which time accumulated silt deposited by the Arno River had completely cut the city off from the receding shoreline."

A visit to France - Angers - Cendrine Marrouat Photography

We chose Angers because it was rather close to all the areas we visited. Angers is located about 300 kilometres of Paris, in the Maine-et-Loire department, and at …

Don't Even Try Using These Banned Instagram Hashtags

From www.huffingtonpost.com

We don't care how "#hardcore" you are.
Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

Apparently, Instagram has banned a list of hashtags. If you use them, your posts won't show up on the result pages for them.

That makes sense to me. Many in that list have probably been used for sexual or pornographic content.

Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

The numbers game continues. People are so obsessed with looking good on paper that they don't understand the impact their short-sighted strategy has on their entire field. This is disgusting!

 

Photographers, please stop buying followers and engagement. Focus on your stories, the quality of your images. Seek to show what makes you unique.

Cendrine Marrouat - cendrinemarrouat.com:

Common sense at its best, if you ask me. This is especially important for photographers. Beyond watermarking your photos, make sure that you have a plan in place to contact culprits. DMCA takedowns are also very effective. 

I did it with Tumblr several times and found the company really quick to act.
