I take some pleasure in shooting interiors of beautiful churches and cathedrals. Often, they are architectural marvels, with sometimes sublime details. The St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans may not be the grandest place I’ve been in, but it does have a light and airy feel that’s worth documenting.
Most of the details appear to be carved out of wood and painted. Not nearly as impressive as the stone counterparts in Europe, but I’m sure this place impressed the less urbane settlers of the new world.
The first and last photos are courtesy of the Olympus PEN-F with the 9-18mm wide-angle. I made the middle photo with the OM-D E-M5 Mark II with the 14-150mm zoom. Both lenses are exceeding slow, aperture wise, with a minimum range of f4 to f5.6. As usual, I leaned heavily on the excellent in-body image stabilization to shoot low ISO photos in a not very bright place. Shutter speeds ranged from 1/8 to 1/13 of a second.
