Study - Church 002 by BenoitAubry Study - Church 002 by BenoitAubry
Last fall, I had just gotten a new 18mm-35mm Sigma lens for my FD series Canon kit. It was replacing my Tamiron 28mm - 135mm Zoom which wasn't giving me enough oomph in the angle.

I needed a building to shoot and I found a beauty. Built in the 1910s, this is the inside of a massive stone structure.

I love old architecture as much as the next person and though I'm not religious sort (what is called a "roaming catholic"), I can still appreciate the craftsmanship, engineering and art involved in building a church.

This is a part of a study with time exposures in Erskine Presbyterian Church (now, the Peace Tower church) in Ottawa. I can't remember the apertures for every shot but they were all different. I used a lightmeter to measure every hotspot from every light source on every shot. The aperture changed from shot to shot as the afternoon wore on.

WARNING: Just use a light meter when you try this. A spot meter doesn't cut it.

I only had one afternoon for the session. No coming back for a re-shoot. I saw the shots for the first time this week, 3 months later.

Please don't use any part of these photographs for whatever reason.
