Filling in for Gary I’ll stick with his B&W theme. I’m however going to take two different angles with this challenge. For those of you who are ready for INFRARED PHOTOGRAPHY, we have the outdoor of a place or worship (CHURCH, TEMPLE, etc….) in INFRARED. I’ll even entertain some false infrared colors. Since I didn’t give you guys a warning ahead f time to get ready for INFRARED you can shoot this challenge like a regular B&W challenge.
I personally purchased an Opteka 6.5mm fisheye lens for my Full Spectrum Nikon D300s. I had a blast with this lens, a fantastic value for around $200. Not having a fisheye is not the end of the world as you can take several images to photograph your scene and then stitch them together.
Like the previous Church, this one is symbolic of Southern Quebec Parishes established at least one century ago. They’re actually from two neighbor towns, Varennes and Boucherville in the Province of Quebec, Canada
This is a much older church nestled in a small town in Ontario, Canada. It’s nestled on a little hillside and has an historical cemetery spread throughout the grounds.
You don’t need a close-up! Here’s the entire Parish of Saint-Vincent-de-Paul bordering the Montreal Back River in the City of Laval.
Things can get much older in Europe as this image of the Church of Font next to the Castle Ruins. Font is a small town in Switzerland located next to the Medieval town of Estavayer-le-Lac on Neuchâtel Lake.
For those adventurous enough, here’s a little chapel nestled atop a mountain in Auvergne, France. (Chapelle de Brionnet à Saurier Puy de dome – Le pic de Brionnet, pays d’Issoire en Auvergne)
Religious or not there’s plenty to photograph across the globe. Always show respect for a place of worship no matter your beliefs.
In infrared you will definitely need a tripod, I always use a tripod as it allows me to hold the camera in place, think and experiment.
(COVER IMAGE – The Church of the commune of Sorens in the Canton of Fribourg, Switzerland(CH)) You can see the Fribourg Pre-Alps in the background….
The rules are pretty simple:
- Post one original photograph (Your Image) shot each week per theme posted on this blog to Google+, Facebook, or Flickr (or all three). Tag the photo #photochallenge and #photochallenge2016
- The shot should be a new shot you took for the current weekly theme, not something from your back catalog or someone else’s image.
- The posted image should not be a Video.
- Don’t leave home without your camera. Participating in the 2016 PhotoChallenge is fun and easy.
