Photo Spot Details

Jemaa El-Fnaa is the most magical place I have seen so far. Best moment to get there is just before the sunset and to stay long after it. To compensate bad lighting, take your tripod and fast lenses along. In Jemaa El-Fnaa you will see snake charmers, fire swallowers, all sorts of magicians and so on. Due to substantial crowd, I’d stick to one lens and camera always in my hand. It is a fantastic place for street photographers, so 23 – 35mm angles do the job there well.
