Photography on the Water: How to Capture Stunning Images of Greece’s Coastline



Team Office

Photographers can’t resist the allure of Greece’s distinctive scenes, which include majesty ancient ruins, idyllic islands surrounded by azure waters, little settlements with whitewashed homes, and modest domed churches located on hilltops.

Greece’s countryside is particularly picturesque due to the Mediterranean’s brilliant southern light, and you definitely should bring your camera along and capture some of the most beautiful coastal landscapes of Greece.

The most excellent coastal photography advice for better photos will be covered in the following post, so keep reading!

Your image will have more depth if you include a point of interest. The underlying theme of all photography is this. For landscapes with coastlines, you must not only choose one but also make sure it is not obscured by other features.

This is essential to prevent ending up with a frame half full with a flat sea. or a sky that never ends.

The sea itself might catch your attention. However, attempt to concentrate on providing the viewer’s eye with a path to follow within the image.

For a smooth water effect, use long exposures. When it comes to taking seaside photos, the long exposure method is crucial. You may use it to capture the motion of the ocean along the shore.

Because seawater is always moving, it is also one of the simplest compositions to locate. Hence, even on a windy day with lovely waves and swift motions, you will still have a good subject.

Utilise various exposures while photographing the sunset. Consider taking many exposures of the same scene if you find yourself photographing while the light is changing quickly. Usually, while the sun is setting, utilize many exposures.

With one or two stops separating each photo, you can capture three pictures. As well as five or seven shots. By doing so, you can capture nearly all of the scene’s dynamic range in varying lighting circumstances.

Take close-up pictures to create more interesting compositions. It is simple to keep your attention fixed on the expansive view. on the largest perspective of the surroundings. especially with the ultra-wide lens becoming more and more common. But, all of this has the potential to dull our desire to find a suitable combination. You no longer need to worry because everything is contained within your frame.

Which places to photograph in Greece while being on the water:

Oia village, Santorini

Even amateur photographers may produce beautiful photographs on Santorini Island due to its breathtakingly beautiful scenery. Cobalt-domed churches and whitewashed homes are perched in the beautiful town of Oia on the caldera’s slopes, which drop into the Aegean Sea’s stunning deep blue waves. The stunning sunsets in Oia village are another reason for its fame.

Kokkari port, Samos 

​​Kokkari, a picturesque seaside village with a charming harbour, is located on Sámos Island and is surrounded by olive gardens, pine woods, and rolling hills covered in vines. The classic Greek boats anchored in the port serve as a reminder that Kokkari was once a modest fishing community.

Assos, Kefalonia

The beachside community of Assos is like something out of watercolour. Its charming fishing port is hidden in a serene cove surrounded by lush greenery and luscious pine trees. Beautiful homes in vibrant colours are perched on slopes above the bay, which is surrounded by seafood tavernas. The cliff-lined Myrtos Beach, one of Greece’s most popular tourist destinations, lies close by along the shore.


Parga has a picturesque shoreline surrounded by hills covered with colourful homes. The Venetian castle ruins on a hilltop and the white church in front of the town’s harbour are two other picturesque sites.
