Photography Portfolio Image Number 7 – an architectural detail picture – Chideock Church Roof Tiles
Yesterday I posted the picture of Chideock Catholic Church and the new domed roof. Today is the close up of the tiles on the roof. Yes, if you go back to yesterday’s post you can see just how detailed this shot is.
This is another of my favourite architectural photography images. I was commissioned by the architect to photograph the new dome. The architect is Andrew Stone, who I have worked for before and since.
This image will be the link between the exterior and interior images in my portfolio. You will see exactly how tomorrow.
This image is a single RAW file edited in Lightroom only. I have boosted the colours and contrast from the client issue image and no more. To the rightis the RAW image.
This picture was taken on my Canon 6D with Canon 100-400mm lens. Not bad detail for such an old and much aligned lens! (Shame I got rid of mine). And I have cropped in from the tight shot, taken at the 400mm end of the lens range.
People talk about new photography equipment all the time – don’t get hung up on this – just buy the gear you need to do the job and don’t worry about it too much. It is about capturing the moment and telling the story, not how expensive your latest lens is!!
Sorry quick rant there.
Tomorrow I will be posting the first interior photography image from my Portfolio.
I have been looking at the images I have produced so far, and am liking the set of images that is emerging. The collection is beginning to make sense, and has a coherent feel.
I was going to complete the exterior images before starting on the interior images, but I wanted to get the middle point and the link between the two sorted. Which I have nearly done now.
Join me tomorrow for one of my favourite interior photographs I have ever taken here on my blog at www.rickmcevoyphotography.co.uk/blog
