Bolu Saraycık Lake – Photography

There is a wonderful lake and nature located at Bolu Saraycık which is very near to Kartalkaya Spor Center at Bolu. This place has amazing view and one of the popular place in the Bolu but local people always come here for picnic or fishing as we did. Also, this is very quiet place to rest on. Here is my photographs which are taken by different weather condition.



This photo took in the summer sunny day about 7 a.m



There was a terrible raining after this lovely moment and we could not go to down town.


These photos has a story and it was a bit challening with nature and man. Those photos taken in first light of the morning at frozing cold.

I haven’t been in this place recenlty but I hope I want to go as soon as possible. There are many wonderful places at Bolu such as Bolu-Abant, Bolu-Gölcük, Bolu-Yedigöller National Park etc. As a suggestion you should go to Bolu/Turkey and see an take photographs of those amazing views.

Practicing Architecture Photography

In the this work, we were practicing our photography skills and actually I am not good at this. We were expected take photographs and focused on some specific qualities. After couples of bad trying, I took a promosing photograph which is all about reflection and focus issue. In the draft submission, my photoshop skill was awful and I did not spend enough time to make this in proper way. This is draft submission of photo:

I did not achieve profer way of clearing the photo and it was bad submission. Also, the effect of the photo is not correct because it is relating itself with the focus area(black part). After critical discussion hours, I realized my mistakes and I worked on same photo with the same keywords and,tried to fix it in proper way. This is my final photo about reflection and focus:

Doğuş Can Kadıoğlu

In my opinion, final submission is much more giving the idea of reflection. An architect and a well-known architectural photographer that’s why I will be very patient and try to catch and take some good photos.

The Composition of Three Variable Objects

This is my first photography composition. I worked with three different variable objects which were frames,lighting conditions and positions. I chose Bera Hotel which is located in Kızılay/Ankara. It has a certain centre location between TED university and Kurtuluş Park which brings almost perceft for this work. Here is my composition:

ass05 horizontal viewFirst Variable Object; Frame:

In first photo, it’s taken by a certain angle for the best view and taken at approximately 12 a.m. Additionally there are some trees and traffic lambs which are breaking the whole composition because if you want to get rid of those objects, you have to zoom it or change the position of the camera but at both situation probably will lose of information. That’s why I chose this position and this building for the frame issue.

Second Issue; Light:

The second photo taken at 11 p.m. and gave me perceft light,ng condition because in the first photo there are no spot light and full of sun light but in this %100 opposite of it. Additionally, some unwanted elements do not completely interrupt the view. To sum up, this photo taken by lighgting condition and as a purpose it did bring the some differences.

Last object; Position:

Third photo is taken by that issue and taken by at the same lighting conditions in the first photo. I used about perpendicular angle for this case and I wanted to create a different view of the building.

Finally, it was very beatiful work for me and at the end of composition I felt almost examine the three different variable issues and that’s why I called the composition of threee different variable.
