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 :)

Vipassanã – Mindfulness IV
“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.” ― Criss Jami
Continuing my series of (en)Visionography self-portraits, which I mean as an act of performance art, based on my true emotions and experiences.
Like before, I won’t say more and just let the image speak to your imagination.

A Tale of the Past I - Keizersgracht Canal Amsterdam
4-shot long exposure Panorama shot during the trip I made to Amsterdam to record my video on Long Exposure, Creating (en)Visionography. You can find the video at http://bit.ly/LEvideotutorial
The funny story behind this shot is that it made me get soaked to the bone till I managed to get 4 long exposure shots that matched with each other well enough light wise so I can make a pano out of them. The weather was so changing that one moment it was sunny, the other raining cats and dogs. If you want my advice, never shoot a LE pano when the weather is changing. You’ll get stuck there (if you’re stubborn like me) for hours trying to win nature. If you still want to do it, make sure you have a good raincover for yourself and your camera. Or at least for your camera, you’ll get soaked anyway

Vipassanã – Mindfulness III
If I die tomorrow, I have no regrets. I’ve done everything I believed in and I’ve done it the best I could. I’ve loved the ones who loved me and let the others go. I’m happy about yesterday and I’m happy about today. I don’t know how tomorrow will be, but I’m happy about it too, no matter how it will look like.
“True change is within; leave the outside as it is.” – Dalai Lama

Continuing my series of self-portraits These portraits are meant as performance art and address to the imagination of the viewer. You can ignore that the subject is myself and put instead your own ideas and interpretations. If this process creates any kind of emotion in the viewer, then my job is done. This, for me, means fine art.

NEW FREE Tutorial on www.juliaannagospodarou.com
Complete Guide to Intentional Camera Movement ICM: Technique and Artistic Interpretation – Part 1
A new tutorial I wrote about a very interesting technique in photography about which you cannot find too much free information online or offline. A fascinating technique in my opinion, which I used in the past and at this moment I’m taking even further by making a series of panoramic ICM images. If you want to see how to create these images, I’m sharing my technique and ideas in this complete guide.
First part today about the artistic background and the essential technique, and the second part following soon with a more advanced approach and analysis.
PS. These days I’m working on revamping my website and I also had some issues with the uptime, so if some things don’t work perfectly, please bear with me for a little while till I get this done.

Vipassanā – Mindfulness II
“For there is never anything but the present, and if one cannot live there, one cannot live anywhere.” ― Alan W. Watts
Continuing the series of self-portraits I started recently. What I aim with this series is to use myself as a subject and express in images the things I cannot express in words, which is what I actually do in all my photography. I won’t say more and let you discover the meaning yourself.
