Marbleous Altar Ego.
Martyrs Basilica (Lisbon, Portugal) — V of XI
another series that commands full screen view

Usually, in a church the High Choir provides great views over the nave. It also provides an interesting view through its balustrade, when the latter exists and is particularly photogenic.

After making the shot that I posted before this one I looked for an alternative, creative, view of the altar. One that might not be so common and hence not often photographed. Carefully framing it between two balusters was the answer.

The next decision was dof: should I use a shallow setting and blur the balusters, or go long and have them in focus as well? The answer to that question was quickly obvious: I wanted the marble detail coming through in the photograph; complementing the detail of the rest of the place. The scene was then ready for the making.

The reason why the image is off-center is because I wanted to play with the light from the left altar: blocking the excessive light I was getting through the lens (read: glare) while keeping the (very natural) starburst from the leftmost lamp. I was limited to how far back I could move; so in short this was the composition this scene commanded.

The image
Few words are needed for this series. Same pointers as with last one: it’s my personal style — unapologetically so and regardless of anyone’s like or dislike of the fact. As always, I capture the entire dynamic range of the scene, and edit to my heart’s content to realize my particular vision for the photograph. Exactly as I achieve these two is a matter of personal preference(s), the details of which are best kept under the lock and key that such concoctions command.

[Be responsible. Consume photography in moderation.]

The tech stuff
Canon 7D + Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM @ ~10mm
Exposure: couple of seconds, between the brackets
Aperture: f/8 (for lens sharpness optimization)
ISO: 160 (for sensor noise optimization)
Three brackets, circa 3EV around the 0 mark

Atelier Wilfried Senoner woodcarving

Our family-run Art studio is located in Ortisei, a small village in the Dolomites, which is a well known mountain range in the Northern part of Italy. In this region, called Val Gardena, the tradition of woodcarving dates back to the 16th century! This art has been passed on from father to son for many generations and still is the main industry of the valley. A handful of master artisans who work for us hand carve the statues using the same tools as 400 years ago: the chisel and the wooden hammer.
We create original designs and also work with our customers' ideas. Bear in mind that we never carve the same statue twice, in order to grant you a unique piece of original art.
