One needs a visa to enter Turkey. Visitors from Europe or the USA can obtain one at the border for 10 euro.
Turkey is an interesting country for photographers. With a wide angle, wonderful landscape pictures can be made. With a light tele lens, sunsets, details of columns without distracting background. A macro lens is great to record details of mosaics, faces of statues and decorations on columns.
Take a camera bag to protect your camera from the dust, which you'll find in great quantities, especially at archeological sites.
It's absolutely forbidden to take pictures of military object. In all other cases, ask permission to take pictures of people. Especially of veiled women.
