Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Villanova University June 12, 2008

On Sunday, when I met my friend Nicole to photograph her baby’s 8 month portraits, I ended up getting there a little bit early so that gave me some time to photograph the church on the Villanova University campus with my new wide angle Tokina 12-24.

I love photographing churches; especially ones with so much character like this one. I have an entire gallery dedicated to churches HERE if you’re interested.

I love how wide angle photography looks and I’m so excited about this new lens! Even with the distortion of the angles I still love it!

Each of the photos below are 3 exposures, merged to HDR, with Photomatrix:

I also photographed the interior of another chapel on the campus later that day that had some great wooden arches. As soon as I have some time to work with them in Photomatrix I’ll be sure to post some of them.

Regards,

Jen xoxo

    Jen,

    First – Congats on your new Blog – It looks great. The university photographs are simply stunning. Some of the best HDR I’ve ever seen and the compositions are perfect. This is right up my alley.

    Excellent job!

    So far I’m loving the new blog…still trying to work out the kinks of switching from blogger to wordpress…

    Wolf – wow, what a compliment! Thank you! *bowing*
    I truly *heart* HDR…it’s a my top favorite besides portraits! If I had more time in the world you’d see more of it!

    The Villanova images are spectacular – your Tokina and the HDR helped capture the majesty of the building.

    Love the look given by the ‘new’ lens and HDR, stunning.
    Found the ‘blog’ layout to be very modern and professional looking, keep up the good work (who needs sleep!!)
