Behind The Lens

Location
Taken in the shadow of Snaefellsjokull glacier, just north of the Snaefellsjokull National park. This former parsonage and estate between the villages Hellissandur and Rif was the common assembly site of the parish in the past The present church was built in 1903 and is the oldest concrete church of the country, perhaps even the world. When it was built, it received a replica of the altarpiece of the Lutheran Cathedral of Reykjavik.
Time
Taken at midday, in early March. Not normally a good time to take photographs, but the light was flat and it could have been anytime.
Lighting
Flat lighting, dull day, so expose for high lights, keep the histogram towards the right and you will be alright.
Equipment
Used Olympus OM-D EM1 mk2, 40-150 f2.8, iso 200. focal length 90, 1/200 f8, hand held.
Inspiration
Seeing this church from the road as we drove past, it just stood out against the mountains behind.
Editing
A touch of Lightroom, clarity, dehaze, highlights,, and grad filter to get the mountains right.
In my camera bag
Olympus OM-D EM Mk2, 7-14 f2.8,12-40 F2.8, 40-150 F2.8. Grip and a few filters. Also good cleaning clothes and wipes.
Feedback
Keep your eyes open and be prepared to move around to get the best shot, leg work is usually whats needed. Also what you see from the road is not always what you get.
