Mr Walker In the name of god
For our in the name of god project we went on a trip to the metropolitan cathedral and also the angelical cathedral, we visited the graveyards because gravestones are things that are associated with god. During this project we are showing peoples different views and therefore going to the cathedrals let us develop our skills and also our look at society.
Research of other photographers
These are the pictures that I have gathered whilst researching religious photography. I chose to have only cathedrals because they have a spiritual feel to them and I also like how the photographers have composed their shots. I especially like the picture with the gravestones as it gives an eerie atmosphere, I am going to try and use this work to influence my own images.
My initial fisheye photographs
My Initial photographs
This gallery is of my initial images before I edited them in Photoshop. In these pictures I have composed them so that I only have certain things in them such as candles and other religious objects. In the images of just the candles I have took the photo so that the image has a kind of spiritual feeling. when I was walking around the cathedral you can tell that its not like the outside world, its like an outcast because of how silent it is.

My personal choice:
Graveyards and Cathedrals
For my personal touch on this project I am going to carry on with the cathedral idea however I am also going to take images of graveyards I will also focus on stain glass windows so that I can bring out the true meaning of my photographs. I think that this will make my project look much better. I will have some images that will represent sorrow and death and also some which are going to be bit more upbeat.

My personal edited graveyard images
Here is a map to show where I took the photographs.
my own initial cathedral photos 2018
over the Christmas half term I traveled to Liverpool city centre so that I could take some more pictures of cathedrals and graveyards, this was so that I could boost my website. I took about 120 pictures with my cannon DSLR camera. This camera allows me to do things which other cameras can't for example I can now put effects on my pic without even photoshopping them. The above pictures are my initial photos. I feel that the composition is very good also I really like the bottom left hand picture because it is very saturated and looks spiritual.
my edited photos 2018
The above pictures are the pictures that I have edited I have used a couple of techniques that I have learned from my peers and mentors. when I was taking these pictures I used the rule of thirds on my camera this is so that the images look professional I then uploaded them and started editing them on photoshop, I used HDR toning, hue and saturation, levels and I also used Gaussian blur on one of the photos. I used Gaussian blur because it means that the viewer focuses on what you want them too. The full frame images are my best in my opinion.
My initial Anglican cathedral photos
The above pictures are of the Anglican cathedral which I visited on the 24th of February 2018 I went here because I wanted to improve my current grade of a B. I took these images with a cannon DSLR camera with a 55mm lens. With this camera I can manipulate the images with filters without even editing them in adobe Photoshop. I quite like the images of the stain glass windows because it gives the cathedral a spiritual feeling.
My edited Anglican cathedral images
These are my best images in my opinion that is why I have uploaded them as a full frame jpeg. These images were taken at the Anglican cathedral with a cannon DSLR 55mm zoom camera. For these images I have used the hue and saturation filters and I have also used the HDR toning adjustment on one of the images. I didn't really need to add many filters as the original photo was very sharp. This is because I used a tripod, the tripod allows for a more sharper image.
