Photographing a photographer
… It’s always enriching for photographers to occasionally step in front of the lens.
Today, I had the delightful opportunity for a photoshoot with Efthimia, a fellow photographer from Greece.
It’s always enriching for photographers to occasionally step in front of the lens, gaining insight into what our models experience.
This practice, which I regularly engage in, involves having another photographer capture my portraits.
Portraits in nature
We met at the bustling Syntagma station.
The first part of our session unfolded in the serene ambiance of the National Gardens.
Amidst the lush greenery and stately trees, we captured a series of nature-inspired portraits, beautifully juxtaposing the natural world with the art of photography.
As the day progressed, we ventured to Plaka, a charming area nestled beneath the majestic shadow of the Acropolis.
Here, our focus shifted to street-style portraits. The eclectic backdrops of chic boutiques, vibrant graffiti, and historic buildings provided a diverse tapestry for our photographic exploration.
This experience not only strengthened our skills as photographers,
but also deepened our appreciation for the varied perspectives behind and in front of the camera.
