After the London trip 2 days ago, I had to fly to Greece for the Santorini pre-wedding photography shoot. This is probably my 8th time coming to this heavenly island. The first time when I went to Santorini was back in 2008. This island is full of colourful white houses surrounded by the beautiful Aegean sea which is great for wedding photos. Beautiful things are everywhere in this island. Taking landscape photos would be easier than portraits or weddings because there is so much light everywhere, and the white houses are everywhere acting like a white reflector. A lot of natural light is good, but Santorini has a lot of natural light + a lot of light reflectors! 🙂 Therefore as a photographers, we need to know how to capture our couple in the “right” light not losing details of their faces, dresses and the background. The key to this is knowing how to find a good light source 🙂
Another challenge was to deal with the super strong wind and it was cold on the day. Therefore, I always had to work and setup the shot in a very short time, i.e. pose the couple and apply simple lighting.
