What an amazingly colourful church.

Your encounter with the priest reminds me of a similar encounter I had with a priest in a small church I photographed once. I had come back with "proper gear" to re photograph the church and he had somehow seen my pictures I shot the first time on my Blog. He removed some distracting stuff and after a pleasant conversation left me to carry on.

I have had caretakers of minor monuments turn on the lights and stuff, as they are happy sombody is taking an interest in their cherished place.

I have similar experiences at a number of churches and theaters. One time I was photographing an old theater in Louisville and my contact at the theater was directing employees to move rather large pieces of furniture to improve the compositions. They also adjusted the lighting to my liking and let me shoot interior shots with and without the curtains closed in front of the stage.

I photographed the Great Hall at the University of Illinois and they rolled out a grand piano on the stage to help with those compositions!

Often times, it's a matter of getting in contact with the right people...treating them right...and providing them with free high resolution photographs from the session. Some of the theaters used the photos in their marketing--website and brochures.

That is a stunning church. Unbelievable job by the painter, must have had divine support! What a great place to test out the sharpness and color rendering of your new gear.
Thanks John...I mentioned to the priest that I was testing new gear (and that I had photographed the interior several times before). It's a lot more fun testing the lens in the church than shooting a brick wall!

WOW! These are beautiful images. Outstanding composition, and the colors are beautiful!
Thank you, Dave

Wonderful work! You seem to have a knack for photographing structures devoted to religion. I remember those amazing images you took on the Conference Centre in Salt Lake City a few years ago...
