Radial Trinity

With an active congregation and choir, Trinity Church also offers self guided tours for a very small fee. It is a living museum.

So what happens when three tripod-toting, bracket-firing, architecture-loving HDR photographers ask about unfurling their equipment and clicking away on sacred ground? Denied, because of security concerns? Or copyright infringement? Maybe safety and insurance issues?

How about none of the above? How about “Take all the photos you want, but no flash photography.” That we did. And for that we are very grateful.

Even before we went in, Brian and I both switched to our fisheye lenses, knowing that the architecture would be ideal for the ultra-wide treatment. While there were countless compositions to be had, there were a couple that we knew we would each get. This is one of them.

Although nearly identical in camera, our decisions in post processing make them two completely different images. I chose to retain the radial distortion offered by the fisheye. Brian had a different idea. It is a must-see.

  1. I love how this collaboration turned out. Your treatment of the scene is fantastic. I really enjoy how regal and cheery it turned out via your processing style. I went with more of a solemn feel to complement your take.

    Looking forward to more of these, my man!

  2. Very cool idea and execution.

    Its kind of neat to put the two sites up in different tabs, and flick back and forth between the two. I guess you guys forgot to get the same view… 🙂 – both are spectacular images.
