It is mid-December and it had been a while since my last photo shooting. You might not get it, but for us photographers (and by the term I don’t mean the business-oriented fellows with no fantasy that only raise their camera just for money) this is far too long. I was in the mood for a good photo and I would do almost anything to get one. I did my research and had a couple of locations in my mind. Being mostly a landscape photographer I had some difficulty in finding something “nice” in the city. I know that it was almost Christmas and the city was decorated with all the lights the economic crisis allowed to glow, but I found it ordinary and overused. At last I decided to head for Mikrolimano in Piraeus, a little marina full of light and opportunities.

Christmas time has come and now it's the time to create great images using your creativity. All type of lenses can be used for these shots, your imagination is the only barrier. There are many ways and tutorials out there and I have selected my favorite ones and when done right the results will amaze you.

It was asked and here it is: The link for my other blog for Neohori Ithomis (near Meligala). It will be a permanent link under About me section.
The blog is scheduled to feature photographs and articles about the area and people there. I am responsible for the photographic part and also writing some words when it is needed.

Exposing to the right (often referred to as ETTR) is a technique that seems to polarize opinions across the internet so you can find plenty of examples of people supporting its use and an equal number of people claiming it adds no value. The principles of the technique however do hold value and are valid to consider when out taking images. As it is a technique that I regularly employ when photographing landscapes I wanted to share the reasoning behind it, and show an example of the benefit it can bring.
