There are many old and historic churches in the Milwaukee area. I had the opportunity to photograph St. Lucas Church in Bay View WI right after if was decorated for Christmas. http://www.saintlucas.org/ Beautifully done with a blue colored theme this year.
I am drawn to the architecture and of course the stained glass windows.
I am always up for photographing different settings even if it might be out of my comfort zone. Over this past year I have been shooting more in manual mode. I try to achieve the best photo I can in camera. I feel there is always more to learn and more to improve on. When creativity is a passion it’s also important to reflect on how far you have come. I appreciated this particular opportunity because it allowed me to realize I do have my own style which actually made me smile. I enjoy looking though other photographer’s work in admiration. Sometime I think “I wish I could do that” It is a pretty normal observation. However I have never felt the the need to try and copy other’s work, and for that I am happy.
This time of year means similar yet different things to each individual. Whether you are religious or not, I hope you see the beauty of the season. Whether you celebrate or not I hope you keep in mind all that is important.
Wishing you and your families Happy Holidays & Merry Christmas
