Re: Re: Cityscapes – Istanbul, Beirut

Thanks Duncan, you are so right about many things, and here I was thinking I could get away with it. 😉

I don’t actually like the Beirut corniche picture, the position from which I was shooting was very difficult, there was this wall in front of me and I had to tilt the camera to get a shot, and the weather was not great either. I did however like the sunset in Istanbul, although it is mostly out of focus. The fish market is also my absolute favourite. I love the atmosphere.

My weakest point is shooting people, I don’t know how to do it without troubling anyone or taking their time for my silly hobby. I can do it with time and in a new place where I don’t know anyone but I find it difficult to shoot people I know, and when I am not relaxed or am short of time. Usually people don’t like to have their pictures taken, right?

I have been super busy lately too so that doesn’t make photography easier. So I need practice. Bear with me, I have a feeling this course will take me a bit longer to complete.

Thanks again for the encouragement!
