May was a wet month 

Rain after rain, with some breaks of sun and 35 C degrees. These words can describe the whole month. I hope that June will be less complicated, weather-wise ☺️   Advertisements

Just some black and whites

I have been extremely active on instagram in the last weeks and this is nice for me, because I enjoy the daily engagement with you. The problem is that I haven’t been as active as I would like to be, here, in this site. It’s not that I cannot find time to drop some lines […]

Spring has sprung. Time for a refresh.

The weather is getting warmer and the sunny days are more than the gray ones. The air smells like blooming flowers! Springtime is for fresh starts. It’s time for decluttering: in our closets, in our relationships, in our to-do lists. We feel the need of doing this important inventory and simplify our lives. Choose the […]

March 25th is a national holiday in Greece

“Don’t forget to look up”. This is a common advice that is given to street and urban photographers: look for stories, shoot from unusual perspective, don’t forget to look up! So, I did. On a Saturday of March, on the Independence Day for Greece, I looked up and saw the birds of prey flying in […]

All in the mall

The heavy, non-stop rain forced many athenians to find refuge under the enclosed and watertight buildings of the city’s shopping centers, this Saturday. It was like having a meeting at the same place, same time with 1000 strangers. And I like these “meetings”, when people are in a good mood and I have my camera […]

Autumn colors

Deep, warm and muted. An overall rich and golden color pallet, signals to our brain that those hot summer days of endless sunshine belong to the past. They fade away to cold, dark gray days that are rushing in. Autumn -for me- is the beginning of a new year. The first season and not the last, […]

ACROS in Fujifilm X70

Fujifilm has done a remarkable work with ACROS film simulation in its latest cameras. The result is so good that many photographers choose the camera jpegs over RAW. ACROS film simulation uses extra noise reduction for the highlights and edges, and it leaves the grain untouched in the shadow areas. This graduated noise reduction/addition is performed inside […]

September in the city

I spent some evenings of the first two weeks of September walking in the streets of Thiseio, a neighbourhood in downtown Athens. Streets are full of people, mostly tourists, a very interesting area for shooting street photos. The weather is still hot in Greece at this season and the days are long. This place has […]

iPhone 7 shoots Raw and supports wide color DCI-P3

Adding Raw capture to the iPhone gives photographers a lot more creative freedom. Post processing will be better with greater levels of brightness and more accurate white balance. As you process your photos in Lightroom or any other software on PC, colors in filters and presets will show their true potential on RAW files, rather […]
