How to Take the Best Jerusalem Photos

Jerusalem is a very photogenic city.  Whether you like taking picture of people, monuments, action, scenery or architecture, there is something here for everyone.

Since the city is built of Jerusalem stone, it is particularly beautiful at day break and at sunset, when the white stones glow to gold. (It's how the famous song, Jerusalem of Gold got it's name.)

If you enjoy taking photos off the beaten track and would like some professional advice and tips while you're at it, consider taking a guided photography walk.  An experienced photojournalist will lead you and your family through picturesque neighborhoods or hidden nature trails to provide you with some stunning photo ops. You'll go home with the best pictures of Jerusalem and some lovely memories.
