ISTANBUL'S BLUE MOSQUE"

READ BELOW 
...BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE SERIOUS ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY !
 


EVEN BEFORE THE CURRENT POLITICAL RUCTIONS, SULTANAHMET SQUARE WAS FREE OF ALL BUT A FEW HARDY TOURISTS  - LIKE ME! HERE'S OUR REWARD...
 

THE BLUE MOSQUE: EVERYBODY HAS SEEN PHOTOS OF THE BLUE MOSQUE ON SULTANAHMET'S ANCIENT SQUARE, HAVEN'T THEY? LET'S FACE IT, SOME OF OUR GLOBAL LANDMARKS ARE PRETTY CLICHED THESE DAYS, THE MORE SO WITH BILLIONS OF SELFIES A MINUTE BEING TAKEN OF NEARLY EVERY ANIMATE, AND INANIMATE, OBJECT ON EARTH. BUT FROM THE MOMENT I WANDERED UP TO THE BLUE MOSQUE, I WAS SMITTEN!

AS I OBSERVED RECENTLY IN MUSLIM INDONESIA, THE MOSQUE CAN BE A BEAUTIFUL 
CELEBRATION OF ISLAMIC FAITH. THE COLOUR PALETE, THE MINERETS, THE FANTASICAL DOMES - EACH DIFFERENT - THE MUEZZINS SINGING OUT THE CALLS TO PRAYER. THERE'S SOMETHING COMPELLING THAT I FIND IRRESISTIBLE WITH MY CAMERA LENS...

ONCE AGAIN, I'VE USED A HUMAN, THIS TIME A WOMAN PHOTOGRAPHER, TO ADD
LIFE AND INTEREST - AND SCALE - TO THE PICTURE. IT'S ONE OF THE SIMPLEST TRICKS YOU CAN USE TO MAKE YOUR PHOTOS A MAGNET FOR VIEWERS.

ALWAYS KEEP YOUR CAMERA READY, INCLUDING NECESSARY ADJUSTMENTS TO YOUR ISO SPEED SETTINGS. GREAT PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES OFTEN EXIST - FOR JUST A HEARTBEAT!
