Have a Glimps of Paradise

Used my 10-18 mm lens in order to capture this beautiful scenery of upper Duden waterfalls in a wide angle. It was a cloudy afternoon, and the sunlight sometimes passed through the clouds and created such a beautiful sunbeam and atmosphere.

Blue Number 71

For a change, I'm sharing this time a street photo that I shot during a hike in a village last weekend. Ilkay was my model.

Eye of the Night
Have you ever heard of “hyperfocal distance”? It plays a large part in landscape photography. Understanding “hyperfocal distance” and knowing how to use it to your advantage can actually change the quality of shots for any photographer. In a nutshell, hyperfocal distance is the point of focus where everything in the frame from half the hyperfocal distance to infinity would be sharp, or in focus. That is if you set your camera's focus to the hyperfocal distance, your depth of field will extend from half of the hyperfocal distance to infinity—a much deeper depth of field. You should check it out on the Internet!

Follow the Boat
Adrasan is one of the relatively less known places in Antalya coastline where you can join the cruises or enjoy a boat tour like in a tropical island to experience the magnificent sites of the clear blue Mediterranean and swim in the clear waters in natural heavenly secret bays.  I like the beautiful light and hazy beam over mountains in this shot. The white foam trail on water the boat I was in left behind filled the dark empty space in the composition.

The Power of Patterns
Using patterns, both natural and manmade forms, is one of the keys to good composition in photography and, when used effectively, can create visual interest and transform an otherwise bland image into something dramatic and eye catching...

Morning in Seaside
Worked to capture the early light of foggy morning in Beldibi, Antalya as it streams through with sparkling reflections, and subtle rays of violet and gray.

Blue Hour
Shooting during the blue (or golden or magic) hour can make a big difference in outdoor photography. These last hours of light before sunset, the sun is low in the sky, the sunlight travelling through a greater depth of atmosphere, produces less contrast, a soft, diffused light. The light then is much more flattering compared to the harsh midday sun with strong shadows or blown-out highlights. While the warm glow adds a pleasing feel to the scene, the long shadows also add a depth to the image.

Photographer | Mountain Skier | Folk Musician / Feel free to be yourself!
Introduction
Photographer | Mountain Skier | Folk Musician 

Welcome! I mostly share my photography here on Google+ which is often about capturing the beauty of nature, landscape, people and travel related, but extends to just about everything else. I love to show people both the beauties they miss around themeselves in daily lives and also getting 'out there' far off the beaten path and showing people the wonders of nature as much as I possibly can. The images of 'human condition and experience' within different social, cultural, urban and rural environments inspire me most, and I am also fascinated with mountain photos.
I love learning photography and exploring the visual imagination of great photographers, and I think my passion provides me with the best ground for learning. I appreciate your feedback and it serves as a good starting point to get to know and follow you.
You can find me always with the same username "BakiKaracay" also on Facebook, Twitter, 500px, Instagram, Your Shot National Geographic, Fine Art America, and Redbubble .

Miscellaneous
My first camera was a Zenit TTL 35 mm SLR that I had in 1984 and my experiences were since through self-study. My last camera is my second digital and a Canon EOS 60D DSLR that I had in 2012. 
The world becomes a different place when you look through the lens,  –a great tool to help me see the world from an optimistic perspective where things are right, properly placed and beautiful as is :) 
As well as seeing Turkey, I am lucky to have been able to travel to USA, England, Greece, Macedonia, Austria, Slovakia, Italy, Finland, Sweden, Germany, Belgium, France, Spain, Syria, S. Arabia, China, Hong Kong and Singapore.
