Istanbul has a population of over 14 million people making it the sixth most populous city in the world. Taking photos during the day can be a bit of a challenge, so I decided to venture out in the evening to get a different perspective on the city. The day had been rainy, but the evening cleared up with no wind and made for ideal shooting conditions.
All the images were shot handheld with a Fuji X-E1 and 35mm f/1.4 lens between ISO 800-2000.
A collection of photos from my trip to Istanbul. Instead of adding a narrative, I’m just sharing the photos.
This was one of those magical moments in Istanbul. Right around noon, I said 1 in the video, but it was noon after I realized my watch was set incorrectly. I was in the Galata Tower with a fantastic view of the city, when all the mosques started their call to prayers simultaneously.
