Amorgos by SteliosKazazis
This is one of the users’ amazing pictures posted on the Hellenic Film Commission website.
- A cinematic shot looks as a frame that could be taken from a movie. The mood, lighting, atmosphere, characters are really important for this particular type of photography.
PS This wild beauty of Amorgos, this incredible mood captured by the camera lens, is so inspiring for write a book and shoot a film about the rough Greek ethics and morals in the 1950’s… #JustSaying…
The Photo Gallery of Greece is a wonderful project to have the opportunity to work on. I would be pleased to help with the promotion of south Crete as a spectacular unspoilt area of outstanding natural beauty, supremely suited as a film location.
🙂 drop a note when you submit a photo, we will post it here as well.
