Taksim Skies

Amidst the constant chaos of Istanbul's Taksim Square, I wanted to capture the people in solitude. So I decided to use the sky as their backdrop. All photos were shot completely candid using only the natural sunlight. There was no "shooting from the hip." When someone caught my eye, I quickly kneeled down and made the shot as they walked by, composing similarly to put focus on both the "character" and the sky.
