BIOGRAPHY
Photography By Cem Nesli “Photography is truth.” Jean-Luc Godard I am from Mersin in Turkey. For the last eight years I have had the great opportunity of living in Africa. Something in my soul was moved by this great continent and I had an urge to capture it with Photography. Thus I started slowly gaining knowledge and skill with each photo taken. This is one of my great passions in life. I find peace in my soul behind my camera. I especially enjoy wildlife photography. But I don’t limit myself to this. All aspects of photography are interesting to me. I have over the years built a portfolio and I do believe that I have created something special. I have made loads of trips to take the photos that I love. This includes Kruger Park, Marievale, Sabie Sands, Timbavati, Cape Town and many more places in Africa. We all have seen photos. We all know what they are. We have all been touched by good photos. We have all been moved by them. I love when I can make people stare at a great photo that I have taken. We all like to stare at these photos but we spend little time thinking how much hard work goes into creating a great photo. I love beautiful light. I get up well before sunrise to get to the destination to get the shots that I want. Mornings and evenings are my favourite times as the light is perfect. It moves my soul. It makes me feel great. Ordinary photos can become amazing pieces of art with the right light. It can take hours to get one great shot. It’s all about being at the right place at the right time and this takes a lot of careful planning. A lot of people think that this is too much work but it is worth every second when I get those special shots. That is not where it ends. It is so easy to set the Camera on Auto. And this is where most people don’t realize that a true photographer doesn’t just point and shoot like a tourist. There are a thousand different considerations running constantly in my mind. The frame, the shutter speed, aperture, lines, framing and so many more factors are important when I consider that perfect shot. I believe that you have to get to know your equipment before you can even start. Practice makes perfect. I learn a lot every time I take pictures and I love playing around with the settings. Capturing each moment at its best is very important to me. I am a perfectionist, It is important to carefully consider each element in the photo before just snapping away. Action shots are also another element of photography. Panning with the camera takes a great deal of concentration. I love it when I get that amazing shot of the Leopard jumping up the tree or a stunning bird flying over the trees. We all can take photos. The key is taking a photo that stands out from the crowd. Photographers paint in their minds a story they want to bring across and we forget that these are not just a point and shoot. There is a lot of thought that goes into the actual picture. Next time you look at a photo, spare a thought for all the artistic elements that go into it. Appreciate the photographer who spends hours thinking about the basics of photos so that we can enjoy these master piece’s. Photographers are true artists. It truly is not as easy as most people think. “Photography, as a powerful medium of expression and communications, offers an infinite variety of perception, interpretation and execution.” – Ansel Adams quotes
