Indulge in aphotographicjourney of discovery, learning & socializing, on the most spectacular island of Greece
Kerkyra, the town of Corfu packs so many visual delights in such a small area, it makes walking with a camera a very, very slow process. What better place to indulge discovering, capturing, learning and sharing than this picture perfect little town. Social media was the key to unlocking the full potential of photography as a means of instant and global communication. Its importance is undeniable, yet only a tiny percentage of people who use it every day know even the fundamentals of capturing and image.
It takes less than a day to learn the essentials of a camera such as the one on your smartphone, and for many that is all they will ever need to know. For others it may be the start of a lifetime affair of creativity, adventure, discovery and passion.
Whatever the need or driving force behind every camera, it has become almost essential to have, at the very least, the most elementary skills,
Taking Control of Your Images
It is fascinating how a fruit company took the mobile phone and transformed it to the most popular camera in the World. Apple put more cameras in peoples hands in less than a decade than Kodak ever did.
Unfortunately, it also took away the control away from your hands and into the mercy of a tiny electronic brain, sort of. The whole truth of course is that modern digital cameras do a reasonably good job all by themselves, which in turn has made us, including many professional, lazy.
But photography has become an integral part of our lives, be it for pleasure or business, a lot like driving, except there is no requirement to pass a test before taking a camera in your hand.
It is the only truly universal language, one that almost anyone can use, but very, very few know how. It really takes very little effort to master the essential skills of photography and gain control over your images.
After all, the very word photography, translated from its Greek origin literally means, writing with light. Don't you want to be in control of what you say ?
