Through her photography, workshops and seminars, she encourages others to connect with the fascinating people, beautiful places and diverse subjects that surround us. See more of her work at Santorini By Deborah Sandidge “In daytime, the village of Santorini, Greece, is serene and beautiful,” Deborah Sandidge observes. “However, just after sunset, the city lights begin to come to life with a warm glow, and the sky takes a softer light as it presents its most impressive colors to create a ‘time to come home’ feeling. To intensify the natural gold and blue colors that I was seeing, I used a color-enhancing polarizer to accentuate the golden colors for a more expressive…
