It is quite difficult to take ‘interesting’ but true photographs of a church. Colour? Black and white? Odd angles? Details or the broader picture? And how can I convey the sense of age, beauty, and the mix of originality and convention? In the end these are religious buildings – can I communicate the atmosphere in the particular building? I have decided to photograph the Church of St Mélar in mono. Quite a challenge!
The Church of St Mélar in Mono
The previous post was ‘photographs of record’ and it was some time ago because I have been working hard on some photographic ideas. This time I am going to try some new approaches to Locmélar and I would love to know what you think.
Should I have a dark background instead?
Maybe black and white for the exterior, sometimes, and colour inside? I feel that the Church of St Mélar in mono captures the exterior convincingly.
