  • Photographing Architecture - Interiors of Religious Places - January 10, 2020
    Presented by Padma Inguva 
    Run time: 1:00:56

    While countless photographers attempt to photograph churches, few succeed in capturing images that are as breathtaking as the churches themselves. The reason is - photographing the inside of a church is hard. It takes an advanced skill-set to capture the three-dimensional beauty, found in reality with such high dynamic range, and then to convey the same level of emotion in the two-dimensional plane of a photograph.

    In this program, Padma Inguva showcases her portfolio of images of places of worship, the equipment she uses, how she plans her visits, the research she does, proper etiquette while photographing, camera settings for both tripod and handheld capture, Image processing post-capture techniques that bring to life the images she captures.
    Here is a link to her portfolio: https://www.padmasworld.com/religious-spaces

    Padma Inguva is well known for her flower photography. However her passion for photography goes beyond her incredible love for photographing flowers. It extends and encompasses the architectural world and all its wonders that include photographing places of worship especially interiors. As a photographer and a student of Civil Engineering, she incorporates the two disciplines into an art form. Her appreciation of Neoclassical Architecture has led her to travel the world to capture some of its magnificent religious structures.
