Influenced by the Magnum photographers, documentary group member Bulent Acar LRPS talks us through his recent entry for the June round of the bi-monthly competition.

What equipment did you use to capture this shot?

It was taken with Leica Q

What was your plan for the day?

To visit and explore the Muslim Quarter in the Old City 

What’s your routine just before heading out with your camera?

Just to make sure the camera is set up properly, ISO, focus, exposure compensation, single or continues shoot. Ready for the day.

While you’re out what makes you press the shutter release?

I always look for something which tells a story.

Where can we find more of your work?

I have some galleries posted at You can also find me on Flickr and Instagram

And finally, which camera has been your all time favourite and why?

I have been a Canon user until I purchased the Leica Q couple of years ago.

Thanks Bulent, we look forward to seeing more of your work.
