Photographing Places of Worship
I fell in love with religious architecture after visiting Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal in 2013. Now I am on a mission to showcase the beauty of churches, cathedrals, mosques, temples or any other places of worship around the world.
While countless photographers attempt to photograph churches, few succeed in capturing images that are as breathtaking as the churches themselves. The reason is photographing the inside of a church is hard. It takes an advanced skill-set to capture the three-dimensional beauty, found in reality with such high dynamic range, and convey the same level of emotion in the two-dimensional plane of a photograph.
In this program, Padma showcases her portfolio of images of places of worship, the equipment she uses, how she plans her visits, the research she does, proper etiquette to be observed while photographing, what settings to use when using a tripod vs shooting handheld, and how to process the images after the capture to bring the images to life.
