Capadocia / Turquia

© Marcos Rivero

Photograph by Marcos Rivero, (portfolio)
Location: Cappadocia, Central Anatolia, Turkey (google maps) (wiki)
Date: August 3, 2008

Camera: Canon EOS 5D (Amazon)
Focal Length: 40mm
Aperture: f/7.1
ISO/Film: 100
Shutter Speed: 1/100 sec

Note: Marcos Rivero captured this photo from a balloon ride in Cappadocia, Turkey. Cappadocia is a popular tourist spot that defines a mountainous region in Turkey. Balloon rides are a popular event of the area due to the aerial views of the geological formations. Excellent composition.

Tip: Marcos used a slower shutter speed(wiki) of 1/100 of a second to allow more light into the camera due to the early morning lighting. Capturing multiple objects and not making them feel “cluttered” is about timing. Snap multiple shots of the subjects to have a few options. You may like the capture you just took, but the next one you may “love”.
