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.

*Vipassanā – Mindfulness I *
First in a series of self-portraits I am working on, in an attempt to create (en)Visionography portraiture.
Vipassanā in the Buddhist tradition means insight into the true nature of reality, namely as the Three marks of existence: Impermanence, Suffering or Unsatisfactoriness, and the realization of non-self. In Vipassanā meditation, mindfulness of breathing and of thoughts, feelings and actions are being used to gain insight into the true nature of reality and of self. This awareness leads us to accept more fully the pleasure and pain, fear and joy, sadness and happiness that life inevitably brings. Vipassanā is the perfect expression of Socrates' dictum, "know thyself."

Blue Matrix II
It may seem like new aesthetics for me but I had this series on the backburner for a few years and it slowly came to life and now I am ready to reveal it. The reason of existence of this series is that I needed to abstract my way of expression in order to be able to look at the world in a different way. This series is my intention of interpreting life in a subliminal way without resorting to known shapes or objects to express my ideas but looking mostly for symbolic connections and interactions between basic geometrical forms and color. This gave me the freedom to distance myself from conventions and (self)censorship and be able to reach deeper into my subconscious and bring it to the surface. I could say this is the inside of my subconscious world or at least a part of it where formal reality is not present.

Blue Matrix I
First in a new series of photographs. Pennzoil Place, Houston TX – Interior
Continuing my exploration of the duo-chromatic concept I started working on a few years ago in blue-yellow tones, like in Manhattan Blues http://bit.ly/2o00mXg or Ancient Glow http://bit.ly/2omt5HD , now in a more subtle rendition aimed to evoke a different state of mind. I started the work on this series in 2014 but finished it in 2017. Many things happened in the meanwhile and they are all recorded here.
