WELCOME
Hi! Thanks for visiting my profile. From the very first time when I came in touch with digital photography it was my aim to get as best as possible the whole light range (highlights, midtones and shadows) controlled - especially during the nights. So most of the time you will see photos during the blue hour or even later. I also love landscape photography.

CRITISISM and REFLECTION
I am not participating in this "give me a like to get back a like" - mentality. If I write a comment, than I mean it. If I liked a photo, than I like it. And if I write a negative comment, than this is NOT to offend the photographer or the skills of him/her, it is just because I have a different opinion unlike the others, who liked the photo. I also expect your constructive critisism. You can be harsh with your comment, but always based on the issue "photography". I do the same. I am also not following people here just because they have a big audience and a big amount of followers and likes, that does not mean a lot to me. I follow people if their photography is "talking to me" or if there is a basic sympathy in the bilateral communication, even after I have written a negative comment on their photo. This shows me, that they can cope with a different opinion to those softly rinsed mainstreamers! But this is how it works here ...

ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY in general
Photography is more than a passion to me. It is my relaxing point. Whenever I work out a photo I calm down and forget the daily stress we all have. And I am also an accredited hotel photographer for a huge hotel chain.

MY WORK OUT METHOD
I like the 16:9 format instead of the 3:2 or 4:3 - so most of the time my photos are cropped to this format. I blend all my images with different exposures manually in photoshop and use a method, which is a mix of DRI, LM and painting on masks...

MY GEAR
I am currently using a Nikon D810.

MY NICKNAME
Saki is the nick name of Athanasios, my name and Makedon means Macedonian (=Hellenic/Greek). I am living in the beautiful town of Hamburg, Germany.

Best wishes

Athanasios Panagiotopoulos aka Saki Makedon or simply Atha
