I find photographing stained glass interesting for many reasons. Firstly, it’s beautiful. Secondly, it’s technically and environmentally challenging. The lighting is usually terrible, strong backlight [through the window itself] and little to no foreground lighting in the dim churches. Compound this with the fact that if you are allowed to photograph inside the church, you probably cannot use a tripod. I also don’t like the distortion that you get when you tilt your camera upwards. Despite all that, this image turned out nicely. I decided to focus only on the glass and to let the frame fade to black. I also tried this angle to minimize the distortion and I think it works quite nicely.
