As istanbulites say, "the best visits are the short visits" so I'll be brief.
Istanbul beats at a surreal tempo, and we have only seen bribes of it in our two weeks stay.
It is as big as its people's heart, friendly and welcoming, and always with a fresh tea.
Special thanks must be given to my patient girlfriend who seated through (almost) all the shots in this film. Love!
Also, a good word to our evening debriefers, Abdullah and Onat, who pointed us in the right direction so many times and introduced us to the music of Trio Joubran.
Shot in November 2012.
Canon 5D mark |I and 60D with 24-70mm, 50mm and 10-22mm Lens
I used a TB3 for a few shots but I botched them all for lack of proper timing with the sunlight (lesson 1)
Also, a bit of flicker remains in some shots even after trying to even them out frame by frame, I will never shoot a light transition in Av mode again. (lesson 2)
Trio Joubran for the music.
