Santorini Photographic Tour 7-14 October 2017.
Lead by Chris Upton ARPS & Peter Jones ARPS DPAGB.
With its dazzling white houses, blue-domed churches, twisting alleyways and hilltop windmills, Santorini is Greece at its traditional best. Famous for its stunning sunsets, sweeping wide vistas across the caldera and beautiful simple architectural detail, it’s no wonder that this island is on the bucket list for so many photographers.
Join us for a wonderful photography tour to this enchanting, magical island.Our tour is timed for late summer/very early autumn when we will benefit from fewer tourists, cooler temperatures and have a better chance of some interesting skies. We will stay in a lovely, small hotel in the bustling village of Fira. An ideal location in the centre of the island and within walking distance of fantastic viewpoints across the dramatic caldera.
During the tour we will be spending much of our time in the four very different towns and villages of Fira, Firostephani, Imerovigli and Oia as well as visiting other interesting locations on this stunning island. We will explore quaint traditional villages, hilltop churches, striking black sand beaches and ancient archaeological sites.
We will be out photographing at both dawn and dusk, making the most of the beautiful sunrises, sunsets and blue hours.
We will also have some free time to allow you to relax and enjoy the delights of the island. The atmosphere will be informal and friendly and in the evenings we’ll enjoy traditional Greek food and excellent local wines in cozy tavernas.
In addition to great photographic opportunities we will have time for image sharing, critiques, and will be providing help on topics including:
Depth of Field calculation
Use of filters
Long exposure photography
Blue Hour Photography
Post processing in Lightroom, Photoshop and Nik software (if time permits or if the weather turns bad)
Our time together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas and great fun. We cannot think of a better location to express your creativity than the breath-taking island of Santorini.
