Winter elegance in Chania, Crete

lifestyle

For this session all I needed was a brief walk around some of the alleys of Chanias’ old town, and of course the presents of Yulia.

A not so complex scenario helps with the realistic look of a Lifestyle photo shoot, therefor creating an atmosphere I love to shoot in, and always makes my subjects fluid and natural.

The soft winter light of Chania Crete, combined with the timing and willingness to connect, guarantees that the portraits will be eye grabbing and emotional.

Narrow cobblestone streets, a variety of rough and mild textures, and props that simply rolled into the cameras frame, all blended into the vision I had imagined and wanted to pass on to my viewers.

That was my experience with Yulia.Her soft elegance perfectly matched with the winter light and Chania’s old town and backgrounds.

Finally the coloring of my images appeared to be a natural response to all those elements.
