This time I wanted to share with you my photo from Greece.
I was planning to stay in Greece for 3 weeks. It was supposed to be a very intensive photo trip. I didn’t have much time and I wanted to see a lot. Famous places, cities, seaside and maybe one island in addition.
But after getting off the ferry I got to this place and all my plans were put aside. I decided to stay there longer than initially planned. Each three days I extended my stay. Eventually I stayed there all three weeks.
I made friends with the hotel owners and spent evenings with local people in the small cosy bar. I got to know the region well. I used to have very tasty dinners in the small village in the mountains. With cats lying in the seats next to mine, waiting if I left something for them. And I spent a lot of time walking around.
This way of working is good for me. In accordance with the slow life concept.
Try to be flexible with your plans. If you like the view and there is no good weather condition – wait. The weather will eventually change.
It is not possible to take pictures of everything. Life is too short. Have you seen that quote from Ansel Adams?: “Twelve significant photographs in any one year is a good crop.” I believe that is a good suggestion. The world doesn’t need hundreds of new “postcard” views.
Slow down and work on the quality of your work.
Some of you know that I sell my prints. I mention that on my social media profiles, but it was not advertised in any way on my webpage. Starting March 2023 I’m going to start selling my prints with “Photo of the Month ” approach.
Do you know how it works?
A new picture is added to the Print of the Month Collection each month. When a new print of the month is announced it is priced 20% lower than regular price. This lower price is available for one month only. After that you can buy a print with a regular price. I will introduce the “Print of the Month” before the beginning of each month on webpage and social media profiles. In March 2023 my Photo of the Month will be the picture from Pitigliano. If you are interested, please let me know. The product will be added to my webpage on the 1st March.
