Santorini - First impressions

Monday, April 10, 2017

The time has come to let my photos from Santorini surface. No comment about the timing (a few months have passed since September) but I figured, what is the point of bringing your beloved camera almost everywhere and never publishing anything. Karina logic. There are so many memories behind these photos which makes me really like them. Hopefully you will, too. 

I decided to post them as a series. Let's start with a throwback to when we first landed on the island. This was my first family vacation ever. So... Where can you spend a vacay with your siblings better than on top of a volcano? My thought exactly. 

At the end of this post you will find my gear and camera settings. Usually the whole set is shot in a similar manner.

We arrived in the late afternoon. The first sunset was spent in Fira, the capital of the island.
