Can I ask why such a high ISO? Were you trying to see how the E-3 would cope with such a high ISO?

Just curious...

I agree it really shows off the mason's skill in modeling these faces. How high are they?

Well the simple answer is that the interior of churches can be quite dull - and in places 'dark'. Without a light rig and the ability to place spots you need the iso to keep the shutter speed up.

Yes - on the first I could have dropped it a crank, but for most of the internal shots I needed that speed to shoot details handheld.

(Flash - well the camera flash would have been pushed - more likely to cut contrast and give inconvenient highlights)

Those - not very - they are actually the detailing supporting memorials - so around eye height.

Thank you

Nick

I was just wondering how you got to shoot them, so that is simple at head height.

Being a part of a memorial explains why they are on such high quality stone, I presume marble.

I do like the first pair (less keen on the second) although I find the lack of eye detail a bit spooky. I tend to prefer the hole in the centre approach.

I must go and see your new site. See the full set.

PS marble sheep would be good...

Re: Suffer The

They're good.

Interesting the way the second one looks as if it's been whitewashed at some point.

As I work my Church collection towards Avebury (which is the direction this campaign is going) I'll keep a special eye open for carved/marble sheep.

I shoot a church, then research it (albeit quite lightly), because I want to first 'see it as it is'. I'm actually a bit intrigued by adjacent monuments (but in different stone/styles), having 'blind eyes'.

It'll be a couple of days before this church appears on my 'church' site.

Thank you Ellie - there is something in the chubby blandness of the 2'nd image I find compelling, I think I'll have to go back and look at again when the light is different,

Don't know about whitewashed - there are certainly (to my untutored eyes) impurities in the stone bleeding through - is that a whitewash effect (honest question)
