Today’s iCandy – Old Church in Sydney

This old church in Sydney is marvellous! It has so much character and you are free to wander around and soak it all in… as you can see, no one else was in the church. There was this funny podium thing, and it was roped off, it took me a while, but I decided to just move the rope and climb to the top so I could get this shot… I am glad I did!

Sagacity

My 2012 Photojourney

Here is a selection of my Photojourney for 2012. It was a year of learning, up until this year I never had worked out what kind of photography I loved, I now have discovered Landscape and what I call HDR Plus – The music is from around 1995 when I was in a band called ‘Sagacity’, I wrote the music and played guitar on the track, My cousin Darrin wrote and sang lyrics, his brother Matt played Bass and and another cousin, Brad played drums… a bit of a family affair! It was a lot of fun so I thought I would share it along with my photojourney for 2012… enjoy!

today’s iCandy – Armidale Catholic Church

Whenever I am travelling I like to check out each destination to see what may be there to capture. On my recent road trip up to the Gold Coast I knew I would be stopping at Armidale for the night. I found out about this old church and wanted to get inside to capture it. I was up early Sunday morning and before anyone had arrived I found a lovely lady that gave me permission to go inside and snap away. I love the detail and architecture of these old churches and whenever I get the chance I try to shoot them, they make really great HDR subjects too!

I went to Church!

If you know me, I am not religious and I am unlikely to head into a church for any other reason than a friends wedding, christening, a funeral or as in this case… to take a photo. The one thing I love about churches is the Architecture, this church is a classic example, it is not ornate, it has been kept simple, and as a result is actually quite a striking church! This church is located at Hunter Valley Gardens.

I was in the Hunter Valley a month or so ago and quickly peered into this church, and wanted to take a pic, but there was someone praying, and whilst I may not be religious I don’t believe in disturbing those that are, so I moved on without my pic. I just happened to be back in the Hunter Valley on Business, and when my meeting had finished, I popped into the Church to find it empty, so I took the opportunity to take this pic!

Besides the architecture, I was also interested in shooting this church to try out my HDR and photoshop skills. You see, to get everything exposed properly, took a lot of work. In fact, I took 7 photos, merged 4 of them together, then spent about an hour (or maybe two!) layer masking to remove the colour cast from the longer exposures.

I am pretty happy with the result. Let me know what you think!
