We had such a good time yesterday shooting in the center of Athens. It was great to meet you all and have fun. We have to do this again soon!!
For those who don't know, this group shot was taken on the Areopagus, the ancient high Court of Appeal  of Athens, the most symbolic and well known rock of  the city. It has been so visited and so many people  have climbed up there over the years that the stone has become slippery from their walking on its surface. I also have a color version of this, if you want I can post it. Sorry for the  grainy look but  it was quite late and I couldn't get away with less than ISO 1600 and keep you all sharp.
Bonus: I'll post in a little while my personal interpretation of the group shot ...all I can say about it is that it was shot at ISO 100 ….whoever was there knows what I'm talking about... :)
Please tag yourself and the ones you know, I don't trust my name memory  and I don't want to make mistakes. I'll just tag the ones I'm sure of.
PS. I'll post some more photos from the walk later.

Athens Worldwide Photowalk 2012

I'm totally fascinated by the motion blur photography. It leaves so much to the imagination and I love that. I can find endless meanings in an image that captures the pass of time, I feel like I'm watching history being created in front of me and there's nothing more enticing and captivating than that.
The idea of taking such a group shot came to me already from May, when we were at the  +GPlus Euro Photowalk  in Berlin,  but back then I wasn't quick enough to set my tripod before everyone got lined up for the group shot (and not moving), so I had to wait  for my next occasion.  This occasion came on Saturday with the Athens Photowalk and happily  this time I was quick enough. What was more difficult was to get the people to move enough for me to capture the motion blur. Everyone was chatting and admiring the view (we are here on the Areopagus, a hill facing Acropolis and  overlooking Athens, a place full of history and myths) and things were somehow static. So I had to experiment with different shutter speeds and this one was what I ended up with, 82 sec,  the highest number I got and the one that finally brought me enough movement to create the feel  I had in mind.
I think this time it  would be safe for me to tag everyone, since you won't even notice the mistakes :)) But I like mystery so  I'm going to leave you guess who's who... :)
