Translucent Memories_ Agora by Santiago Calatrava, Athens
Medium Format Fujifilm GFX 50s, 32mm (~25mm on full frame), f/9.0, 3-shot Vertorama – Photoshop & Photography Drawing™
Our memories are not real facts but only what we keep of those facts. It is our interpretation of those facts and sometimes they have nothing to do with reality. But as I was recently saying, does reality even matter? Especially in art and by extension in fine art photography, does reality matter? My opinion is that reality is just a canvas on which we can draw our own world like a draftsman draws on paper. We can draw on this canvas using as a tool our imagination and we can transform this reality into becoming our dreams. I think this is how people connect through art. They connect through the dreams they are relating to when interacting with an artefact. The artist creates the dream sometimes based on his own life, on his own dreams and memories, and the viewer connects to that dream relating it with his own life, his own dreams or his own memories. And this is what makes us one.
I will be shooting this structure again at my private exclusive workshop in Athens on October 5-8. If you want to join me there’s still a bit of room left, so let me know and we will dive into the secrets of photography and (en)Visionograph, from groundbreaking theories about photography to cutting edge methods of post-processing.

Threefold Mirror - London
Most people think that this view of St. Paul’s Cathedral in London is a happy coincidence but if you look at the blueprints and the design of the building where I shot the cathedral from you understand that the architect was well aware of what was happening and he planned everything meticulously. And it’s no wonder since the architect was Jean Nouvel, a French architect that has designed many of my favorite buildings all over the world.
When I encounter “happy coincidences” like this I regret I am not at the drawing board more these days to design architecture, but documenting the amazing pieces of architecture around the world is something I’m just as passionate about. Just as I always felt, I would need at least two lives to do all the things I want to do. But until my next life, I am living this one with passion for the things I love, and shooting and studying architecture will always be one of them.

Silent Storm - Westminster Bridge & Palace, London
There are some places in the world, and this is one of them, that show their most intense spirit in stormy weather. London generally is one of the cities I love in intense weather. It makes me think of a William Blake poem combined with an Edgar Alan Poe story. Not sure if you get the idea but this is what it creates in my mind.
I posted this image on Instagram a short while ago https://www.instagram.com/juliaannagospodarou/ (BTW, you can follow me while you’re there :) , and the app cropped it square without me noticing it until it was too late to change it. So I left it like this. I’m not saying I prefer it square (maybe you will, what do you think? ) but it was interesting to see it cropped while expecting it to be a 4:3. It was like seeing the image in a new light and seeing things I hadn’t noticed before. Which shows once more how important is to make a conscious decision when choosing the format of an image and why the same format doesn’t always work with everything. One of the reasons I stopped working exclusively with the square format a few years ago, after doing it for some time. It was too limiting, after a while. And then so many new possibilities opened up...

#HundredHeroines - Very proud to have been nominated!
http://www.rps100heroines.org/nominated-heroines/
The UK Royal Photographic Society is running a campaign to honor one hundred photographic heroines, one hundred contemporary women photographers who have brought a significant contribution to photography and who have inspired and challenged others in their photography quest. I’m very happy to be on the list and I want to thank all those who have nominated me.
The campaign aims to redefine and realign the status of women in photography today, something that I believe in and that needs to be done. Which is why I hope you will all support this campaign.

LONG EXPOSURE PHOTOGRAPHY EXTENSIVE TUTORIAL
My latest blog article is an extensive long exposure tutorial that was long overdue. I hope those who asked for it will find it useful and even those who didn’t ask for it will find inspiration in it too. I have put in it many years of experience in working with this technique and of winning many prestigious awards for my long exposure images.
If you are a subscriber to my website you already received my newsletter with a special 25% discount code for my video tutorial about long exposure that comes together with the e-book “Advanced B&W Processing”. The discount will be available until Friday, August 10. Periodically I will have special offers and exclusive material for my subscribers only, as a way to thank them for their trust and support and for not getting bored of what I have to say.
Even if you aren’t yet a subscriber, if you subscribe now at http://blog.juliaannagospodarou.com/subscribe/ you will still receive the newsletter with the discount code. I hope you’ll enjoy both the video and the written tutorial.
