What are the most visual tourist locations in Istanbul?
Posted October 11th, 2012 - 9:46 am by from London, England (Permalink)
Next month I'm coming to Istanbul to film a conference. Our first day involves travelling around Istanbul getting shots of all the main tourist attractions for the opening sequence.

I was just wondering if anyone knew any of the best spots to film? I don't want to go to any and find out they are really bad for filming. And I don't want to miss out anything really nice.

Does anyone know a good spot for filming a wide shot of the city?

Also is there anything I should know about the best time of day to film places. And filters / lighting, does anyone have any tips?

I've never been to Turkey and I've only just found out about the trip but I'm trying to start preparing. If you've filmed or photographed in turkey I'd love to know anything you learned!

Any tips or info would be great! Thanks,
Lydia.

Thanks so much for your help!

NERVUSVAGUS78, where did you take this picture from. I would love to film from there. http://www.flickr.com/photos/loamt/6296447342/in/set-72157627892947471

It's an oil company conference which I don't like, but its just a job for me

Thanks so much!

I think, you should definitely draw a picture from `dogan apartment` and ~dogan apartment in taksim~

you can see from here, topkapi palace, karakoy, eminonu... the upshot, summary of istanbul ;)
