While countless photographers attempt to photograph churches, few succeed in capturing images that are as breathtaking as the churches themselves. The reason is photographing the inside of a church is hard. It takes an advanced skill set to capture the three-dimensional beauty, found in reality with such high dynamic range, and convey the same level of emotion in the two-dimensional plane of a photograph.
In this program, Padma Inguva showcases her portfolio of images of places of worship, the equipment she uses, how she plans her visits, the research she does, proper
etiquette to be observed while photographing, what settings to use when using a tripod vs shooting handheld, how to process the images after the capture to bring life to the images etc. Here is a link to her portfolio: https://www.padmasworld.com/religious-spaces
Padma Inguva’s passion for photography goes beyond her incredible love for photographing flowers. It extends and encompasses the architectural world and all its wonders which include photographing places of worship, especially interiors. As a photographer and a student of Civil Engineering, she has managed to incorporate the two disciplines into an art form. Her appreciation of Neoclassical Architecture has led her to capture some of the magnificent religious structures in the USA.
