I have been spending a little time in Belfast Cathedral compiling a body of work and on my last visit my attention was drawn to a small detail. So often when you work to a brief you tend to overlook that little detail. The lesson therefore is to slow down and take the time to look around properly, in so doing you can be richly rewarded.
Here is one example, the silver cross that sits on the communion table was photographed from behind showing the reflection of the stained glass window on the east wall. I used a shallow depth of field to throw the background out of focus, but not too much as to render two of the three ‘great lights’ unrecognisable, the third ‘great light’ being hidden by the silver cross. To emphasise the key subject the background was kept dark.
