Leica Street Portrait Istanbul


New Member
Hi all:

this is my first contribution to the group: just came back from a trip to Istanbul and used my new leica M with 50 mm lens : passed this elderly man at the old spice market who was waiting on his son to pick him up : he kindly agreed for me to take his photo : wish I had the leica monochrome ... maybe my next leica ;)

Would love to hear your advice

How did you managed to be in Istanbul and make one portrait only! You should have came back with 1 hundred :)
The fact that you approached your subject and asked for a picture that means you had the time to think your framing options. This pictures would have been much stronger with a different composition. I also wished the lines on his polo match the flow of those on the wall!

Hi, and welcome! If you could have turned to look up or down the street with your subject, it would likely have been a stronger photo. As is, a bit of crop would help, and b/w conversion in post would be good to try.
