Street Shot Sundays Story & Stats
This Sunday’s Street Shot of the Week was taken in Eminönü by the Galata Bridge in Istanbul. In the evening, just outside of the tunnel walkway that goes under the Galata Bridge, you can get this great lighting that highlights the people against the shadow of the tunnel. The sunlight hits the opening of the tunnel perfectly and creates this natural effect. I love what natural light can do and it’s a great spot to play around with it to see what you can capture. I just make sure I expose for the highlights and wait for opportunities where it’s not too crowded so I can create some separation with the shadow. Here’s a recent shot from this spot that also shows what this type of light does to bring out color.
