St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Fredericksburg, one of the painted churches of Texas.
This photo reminds me of one I took with my father. We set up a Deardorff 8×10 camera at the National Cathedral and photographed three different alters using Kodak T-Max black and white film. I remember one particular shot where the exposure was several minutes long and how we used a Metz flash with a zoom attachment to add light to the upper corners of the frame; it was so dark there. Adjusting the shift and tilt of the camera so that EVERYTHING was in focus and all the columns and arches appeared straight took forever. Thank goodness we were there on a weekday in the late afternoon and the church was empty. That is one of the few negatives, I’ll never forget.
Sounds like a neat shot. Do you have a digital version of it you can share?
No such luck.
