Doors

As a follow-up to our week of churches we decided to stay with the theme and go with church doors. I went with the decision to use my fish-eye lens for this week. I thought it would give me a unique perspective on the doors and also allow me to get in tight, removing quite a bit of the distractions around the doors. Not sure it worked but maybe I just need to pursue this theme longer and work out the bugs.

Using the fish-eye for architectural subjects is definitely harder than for a nice landscape. Position of the focal plane, orientation of the camera all come into play and when they are off it is really noticeable. I think the small inconsistencies with each image are what has me second guessing what I captured. OK, that seals it, I just need more practice… so you will have to put up with more church doors in the future. 😉
