Turkish Delights

12 commentsIstanbul,Photography

During a twelve-day vis­it to Istanbul, I col­lect­ed snap­shots of my favorite peo­ple, places, and sights. Since I had sworn off using my “prop­er” cam­era for street pho­tog­ra­phy (to avoid get­ting dis­tract­ed from a sto­ry I was work­ing on) I chose to use my phone instead.

So here they all are.

ISTANBUL IN 12 DAYS OR 120 SHOTS • Click on each snap­shot for a larg­er view.

Snapshots tak­en on my phone.

Apparently it has been incognito in that building for years and "came out" as it were a couple of month ago.

Excellent series! I was particularly taken with the portrait of the women framed in the upper left corner with the sea ahead of her. Unorthodox composition but works really well!

Yup! A cellphone with its fixed lens, sluggish responsiveness, and awful dynamic range lends itself to unconventional compositions, crooked horizon lines, and many other happy accidents. :)

Despite technical disadvantages there still needs to be an eye that says, "Now!" Well done.

Thanks again and glad you think so.

I also have another much more consistent and thought-out project I did solely on a cellphone. You're welcome to read the post here
