Entering the Blue Mosque – Stuck in Customs

Entering the Blue Mosque

Photo Tip: Include People!

My first instinct when taking photos of incredible places like the Blue Mosque is to try to get a “clean” shot without anyone in it. I still do that as my “main” photo, but I also try to get shots with some or even a bunch of people in it. I think we shy away from this because it feels like a shot that all the “tourists” get too, but it can still be quite interesting.

Daily Photo – Entering the Blue Mosque

After I took off my shoes and walked inside, this is what I saw. It was majestic! It’s fun to be in a place like this where you know 99% of people are seeing it for the first time too. There’s kind of this collective “awe” energy that is very fun. Everyone is in there depositing good vibes and it makes the whole spectacle more spectacular! 🙂
