Enlightenment III – Sacré-Coeur Basilica, Paris
One of my most beloved places in Paris, from the time I was just a kid. I’m always trying in my images to depict subjects that move me, and look at them from this prism and not necessarily because they are well-known subjects or recognizable structures. I think making a photograph of a well-known place is a much harder task than just shooting a random subject because you have to deal with all the symbolism that place carries within, and find a way to integrate that in the story you’re making of that place for yourself, in the emotion you feel. There’s always a combination of deeply personal and universal experiences in these cases and I find that so fascinating.
What’s behind this series, and behind this image too, is the idea that everything we experience is intertwined and is creating who we are, little by little, experience by experience, till the moment we reach the truth and understand our true mission in the world. And that is Enlightenment.
‘Nuff said. Not boring you more :) If you want to hear more, I’m saying much more in my video Creating (en)Visionography http://bit.ly/LEvideotutorial

A Tale of the Past III – Armbrug Canal Amsterdam
I really loved to work with reflections in Amsterdam, and the canals are the best playground for working with reflections.
I shot a long exposure too in this area but I like so much the quality of the contrast in the light and the movement in the water here, and especially what it does to the reflections, that I eventually went with the short exposure. It is a 3-shot panorama just like the long exposure I shot but the long exposure is from a slightly different point of view where the water is more still. I will probably work on the long exposure too but I think this image has in it more of the surprise photography can give you. Something like the surprise we were feeling when shooting with film and finally developing it, after just imagining how the images would look like. No need to wonder much now with digital but you can still feel some of this surprise when you shoot a panorama, since it’s not done until you put the images together in post.
I think surprise is one of the most important things we all search as artists and this is why playing and experimenting is so important in photography. I’m all for it and I advise everyone who cares about my advice to try it. Just go out and play! :)

Enlightenment II – Notre Dame Cathedral, Paris
Back from Paris after a great workshop with many new photos and even more new ideas. You’ll find out about the new ideas very soon.
This is an image I shot last year and is another motion bur image in my Enlightenment series. Shot with an exposure of 270 sec with the 24mm tilt-shift lens. I have shot many motion blur images over time, I think it’s time for them to see the light of day.
You can find limited edition prints of this image and more at http://www.juliaannagospodarou.com/Pages/Fine-Art-Prints

Enlightenment I - Eiffel Tower Motion Blur
New series shot in Paris and France. An image I wanted to shoot for a couple of years till I finally got the right conditions and light. Add to this a few months till I started and finished processing, and this is Enlightenment I. It is all about (en)Visionography and taking it one step further and in a rather different direction than my usual work, if not necessarily as for the subject or treatment, surely as for the meaning. It will become clearer as the series unfolds.
Looking forward to shooting again in Paris at my upcoming workshop. Always inspiring to shoot with my students in the City of Light.

A Tale of the Past II - Singel Canal Amsterdam
Second in my Amsterdam canals panoramic series shot last year. I'm quite fond of panoramic images these days. They break away from the standard formats and there's nothing I like more than breaking the standards :)
This is a canal I really like and wanted to shoot for quite some time but anything else than a panorama image didn’t satisfy me so far. So this is a 3-shot panorama taken at sunset when the light was truly sweet and subtle. It is a quite peaceful place, a little outside of the noisy areas and the beaten paths, and somewhere I always like to go for a stroll when I’m in Amsterdam.
PS. You need a 3 meter wide screen to see this image as I intended it to be seen, so don't bother to look at it on a phone. Better come see the 3 meter long print :)
