Photo Spot Details

While Istanbul is known for many famous sights, I was drawn to capture some of the non-iconic sights found through the city. Aside from the items found in every travel guide, the city itself had textures, colors, and graffiti that I hadn’t seen before. The above image was a locked door behind a building where many passerby have drawn and spray painted on. This door and others like it were quickly passed by others on their way to see a sight in the city.

 Photo Tips:

1. For a minimalist kit, I would recommend a fast aperture prime like a 35mm f/1.4, a normal zoom (24-70 or 24-105). Telephoto is probably optional.
2. Istanbul was very comfortable in late March. Night air was crisp while the days were warm and pleasant.
3. Wide angle lenses were my most used lenses 24mm-35mm range.
