Hanging Lamp - Day 105

ISO 400, f/11, 1/250th sec

 Though I enjoy photographing architecture in general it's the details that really draw my attention. Case in point with this hanging lamp on a local church. After a spending a bit of time working on photographing the church I kept coming back to this particular lamp. Though this is not a usual composition by placing the lamp in the center of the image I think it works well here. This is the 11th architecture image I have posted to date.

Early Spring Steeple - Day 104

ISO 400, f/11, 1/250th sec

 As you can tell from a few of my most recent posts I have been doing a lot of church photography. This steeple image was taken of the First Congregational Church of Pomfret. I liked the contrast between the high clouds, the bare trees and the church. This photo is number 24 of 100 churches I want to capture here in eastern Connecticut.

Church Details - Day 103

ISO 400, f/11, 1/60th sec

 One of the numerous reasons I am drawn to photographing churches in general is the details you find throughout the architectural design. This image was taken from the Most Holy Trinity church. The stain glass windows and lamp were located above the front doorway. I like the repeating elements in the image and the items that help frame the windows and lamp too. This is my 10th architecture image I have posted to date.

Steeple Scene - Day 102



ISO 400, f/11, 1/250th sec

 This steeple scene is from the Most Holy Trinity church in Pomfret. It sits at the intersection of routes 97 and 169 and is a quaint looking church. The sky was a nice backdrop that day with high wispy clouds breaking up the blue. This is the 23rd church I have photographed here in eastern Connecticut in my pursuit for 100.

Bell Tower Contrast - Day 101

ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/500th sec

 Besides trying different points and views and composition styles I have been expanding my techniques in my digital darkroom workflow. In this case I used a high contrast setting to draw the eye to the very bright face of the bell tower of the Federated Church of Christ. There is still enough details in the shadow side of the tower and the bare tree offers a good framing tool as well. This is the 22nd church of eastern Connecticut I have photographed to date.
