Hello James, thanks for your comment! It´s a panorama composed of 6 photos, with an 8mm fisheye. There´s a few other cathedrals on my profile made with a single shot too :)

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was takens inside the Alcobaça Monastery in Portugal, July/2018. I went on a travel with my family from Brazil to Portugal, spending a few hours on many cities from South to North in 10 days. The interior of this monastery gave me the idea to try this super wide-angle photo.
Time
It was around 11:00AM when we arrived in Alcobaça, on a very hot and sunny day. As many other monasteries and cathedrals, this one looks really incredible at this time with natural lights.
Lighting
All the lights were natural, with lots of interesting shadows and shapes coming from the vitrals.
Equipment
I used my Canon 80D with Samyang 8mm, no tripod and 6 shots to compose this wide angle later on Lightroom.
Inspiration
I always wanted to make a series of super wide-angle photos, but while here in Brazil is getting really complicated to photograph the interior of interesting public buildings due to some new anti-art laws, I saw in Portugal a great opportunity to make these experiments perfectly fine.
Editing
This picture combines around 6 to 8 photos to result on this huge wide-angle view. From lights to shapes corrections, everything was processed using Lightroom.
In my camera bag
A pair of DSLR, being one full frame and a crop-sensor. Most of the time, I carry a film camera too, usually for experimental stuff. For this travel I took almost 10kg of lenses, for multiple purposes, as the cities and the short-time were always offering surprising new photo-opportunities.
Feedback
One of the major rules for this kind of photo is to patiently analyze the place and calculate how many photos you´ll need to compose your panorama. I used a vertical one for this picture, so with a 8mm lens wasn´t a lot of photos but, in general, you´ll need 10 or even more pics using a 18-50mm kit lens to make a great wide view of a landscape or wide interiors.
