You will be introduced to the Greek House of Parliament, the University of Athens, the Academy of Athens, and the National Library. You will find yourself surrounded by the night owls Athenians on the full-of-life Monastiraki square providing us with a variety of great photo opportunities to document Athenian nightlife under the lit Acropolis rock.
Ancient archaeological landmarks and modern urban city spots will give us the perfect material for some excellent night-long exposure photography!
We will discuss cityscape photography, composition, long exposure techniques, HDR, blue and golden hours and you will end up with astonishing, eye-catching photographs for your holiday album lit by the beautiful Mediterranean night light!
Depending on our pace and your mood we may stop for a while to enjoy a beverage and a snack!
A most enjoyable experience to see this gorgeous city and experience its culture under the magic night light.
What to bring
You will be photographing under low light conditions using long exposures, so a tripod is mandatory. We can provide one free of charge if necessary.
Owning a remote shutter release will be a bonus but not a necessity!
