Harpers Ferry Church

Environmental portrait of a man who was volunteering his time to share history of the St. Peter’s Catholic Church, in Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia.

The original church, built with a pseudo-Gothic architecture style in 1833, was the only church in Harpers Ferry to survive the destruction of the Civil War. In 1896 the church was remodeled in Neo-Gothic architecture. (Wikipedia) Harpers Ferry sits at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers, the point where West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland meet. There’s a lot of history in this town and if you are nearby, it’s worth a visit.

I went to Harpers Ferry to shoot a wedding and I’m glad I had the chance to check it out. This picture is shot with a 15mm Canon Fisheye lens. It is made from 6 different exposures with the same aperture (f 5.6) and various shutter speeds, which are then blended together in Photoshop with brushes on layer masks. This style of digital photography allows the artist to add his or her own “hand” to a picture.

Shot with a 15mm fisheye lens to add perspective to a unique location.

The only product I am currently offering are prints on PVC. You may not have heard of prints on PVC because they are new, but they are BEAUTIFUL! They have all the detail of a paper print without the glare of glass or additional cost of framing. They arrive ready to hang with a mount that puts the image 3/4” from the wall for a modern “floating” look. The finish is a metallic luster that I feel compliments my style.

Why not canvas? Personally, I do not like the texture that comes with a canvas print. I don't feel that they are as detailed as a PVC print and I have been unhappy with the overall printing of canvas prints that I've ordered in the past. To be fair, I have seen canvas prints that look good but I don't know where they were printed and until I find one I'm happy with, I don't want to offer them. Furthermore, canvas prints are much more expensive.

That said, if you'd still prefer a canvas or a paper print, please use the form to the right to message me and I can put together something custom for you.
