Dasvant is a noncommercial showcase for us to exhibit the work we have shot/done/distorted. It's our turn to get behind the camera. Sorry for the the glitches and mistakes.


Dasvant is derived from the word das[u]vant in Hittite language. It means blind. We have chosen it as a title for its obvious irony and as a small tribute to the cultural heritage of the land on which we live.

cappadocia - star trails 

posted on 03.07.2012 

Our dream was a star trail shot at the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia. We did location scouting during the day to get the pole star in the frame and decided to that Pasabagi Zelve was the most appropriate spot. The moonlight was very helpful. A local dog accompanied us during the shooting and then fell asleep. It was still sleeping when we were leaving.
