Default Architecture - I am an internal architecture addict

I started photography about 3 years ago. As time went on I found that I had a strong preference for internal architecture. Here are some photographs that I have taken so far.

By the way if any of you want the full 18 megapixel jpegs, you can get them for free from my DA account here:

Fantastic images... I would hate to have to dust or paint interiors...

It has taken me about 3 years to get basic competence in photography. I wish I had the same skills in 3d modelling. I guess they will come the more I model. I just hope it doesn't take many years like photography!

I should model more but I am addicted to photography. I think what I need is a very small project to get me back into modelling. So far as my AT ST walker is concerned I have done the main head.

You couldn't tell from my photographs that I am atheist could you? Maybe there is a god and she creates these wonderful cathedrals, to lure atheist photographers in, knowing that once they visit one, they will be hooked for life. The cunning minx.

Stunning photos! I too really like elaborate interiors and they just don't build them like that any more.

I've been modelling since about 1997 I think. Just now I'm starting to think I might be okay at it. Certainly wouldn't call myself good. It's practice, practice, practice; same as photography.

I've been playing around with the idea of doing an cathedral interior modelling wise. I suppose once you've built one pillar and archway you could multiply them quite easily. Still got my AT ST project to finish off, not doing too badly just going slowly. I think the best thing for me to do is do something small and quick to get back into modelling.

I am in heaven! There was a place that I have wanted to photograph for over 3 years. I tried once or twice and it was closed and hard to get to. Today I finally managed to get inside and photograph the interior! The place in question was St Walburge Church, located in Preston, Lancashire, England, UK. Finally got it done! \o/

Great work!

I think my favourite interior is in the Natural History Museum, London.

Have you considered stitching images together? I notice you are already using strong wide-angle views, and I find stitched panoramas can be a great way to get a lot more into the shot.

Also check the current photo challenge - with a theme of "walls" you probably have a great entry waiting to be submitted!

Agreed starbase, NHM is fantastic, i almost used to live in that place when i was a kid. I was brought up in Earl's Court so it was a short walk for me.

I'm not really a religious man but when you see pictures like this, it speaks for why they need preserving at all costs. Some of these churches are 700/800/900 years old.

Try Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, built in 537, one hell of an achievement for the time...

Oh yes, there are many indeed. There are some great mosques around as well.

Here is a shot that I took a few days ago of Lytham Hall. Slowly moving away from internal architecture to exteriors.

I visited the Natural History Museum a few days ago and managed to get this shot:

This is 1200 x 800. You can see the full size 5182×3454 for free on here on my DA account : http://kippa2001.deviantart.com/art/...-HDR-401271208

Stunning, best shot I have ever seen of this beautiful building!

And it looks empty too!

It took me about 3 to 4 hours waiting. 20 minutes before the NHM was to close there was a 10 second gap were there was no on in the frame. I managed to get 3 shots for my hdr image. Basically a mixture of patience and luck, in this case more luck than anything else as this place was very busy.

It has been a few days and my legs are killing me from standing that long in one position, still it was worth it in the end.

To be honest I think this is the best photograph I have ever taken. NMH is a lovely place and would probably visit again, this time just to have a proper look around.

Towards the end of the year they host the wildlife photographer of the year - something I always try and catch.

Also just around the corner is the V&A - it doesn't have anything like the NHM's main hall, but it does have some great sections, my favourite being the hall of fakes where they have replicas of giant ancient monuments like Trajan's Column. I tried a couple of times but never git the great photo I wanted

Just visited Whitby Abbey on sunday. This is the shot that I took of the place. Famous for the place where Bram Stoker wrote the Dracula story. Located in Whitby, Yorkshire, England, UK.

If Rigel hasn't closed the September photo challenge, there's enough water in that shot to make it a valid entry I'd say, if you bung it in fast!

Years ago I shot York Minster. Back then it was when I was learning photography and was shot hand held. The photograph had an high iso and was noisy as hell. This time I have revisited this place and got a shot using a tripod with a low iso. )
