One of the windows at All Saints church in Hawnby
Nice shot Sam, I experimented with Church window shots last week at Wakefield Cathedral It's a real challenge to stop the highlights blowing out isn't it. I ended up having to shoot with 1 or 2 stops underexposure.
Thank you Stuart , you're right about the highlights they are what most people struggle with
for sure but over time I've found there are ways to make things a bit easier and I will add some tips under your own upoload to point you in the right direction.
Read your comments on stuarts photo with interest I,ll have to try out the flash on some and see how it goes, a nice set of window pictures you've uploaded Sam.
Cheers Ian,yes give it a whirl, it's just a case of finding the right balance between outside light and fill in flash.
Hi Clive I particularly like this one too.
The outside light was changeable but not excessive
and of course windows on various sides of the church were lit differently but my own findings are that intense sunlight outside makes it almost impossible to get total accuracy on exposure even with flash. A bright overcast day is much better and works best , as it does for waterfall shots too.
Thanks for the lovely comment.
kind regards, Sam
Thank you TvdB , I'm sure I will as and when I find them to photograph.
