Today’s featured photo of the day! The feature is: Architecture – Churches

Here is today’s featured photo. Continued ongoing in the winter months, I am featuring fine photos of great architecture. I am starting out with our beauty of churches, to symbolize faith and hope, to brighten up these days, because we have to look at the brighter side of life. So, I am starting off with a really great photo of the Pilgrim Faith Church in Oak Lawn, IL!

Photo taken with a tripod mounted Nikon EM-through a Nikon 26 mm lens, filter=NONE, Aperture=2.8 f/stop, shutter-speed 1 second, loaded with Kodak Tri-X Black & White 135 Negative Film ISO (ASA) 400 (raw grain) processed with D-76 Processing Chemicals, and a fiber paper print using the Kodak Professional “warm-tone” enlargement paper developed with Kodak Dektol chemicals onto a 3½x5″ matte-gloss print. Date – March 1981.

A work of art!! I first exposed the shot onto the normal exposure. Instead of developing the print, I re-exposed the print with clear light exposure for 1/8 of a second. I then processed the print with the normal black-and-white process finish. You can really see the outline of posterization taking place with this shot. How lovely!! The print is on fiber paper print using the Kodak Professional “warm-tone” enlargement paper developed with Kodak Dektol chemicals onto a 8X10″ matte-gloss RC print. Date – August 1981.

The second print I exposed the shot onto same way as the first photo, except I saturated the photo with twice as much light by re-exposing it this time with 1/4 of a second. You can see that more light, in this case was not the answer, and that I lost the posterization effect by over-saturating, yielding more contrast and darker skies. Date – August 1981.

  1. What a beautiful picture of some really nice architecture! I have never been to Illinois but this is such a beautiful church. Thank you so much for sharing!

  2. These are really cool pictures. I lived in the southwest suburbs most of my life and I haven’t been out that way in a while. It’s nice to know that some things do stay the same.
