I have had a few requests for different temples over the last year. I am still figuring out how to get the time to really be there when the light is just right and get what I want. With three young children my time is limited, and besides I like my wife a lot and want to be with her too.
I had a slightly different request recently though. Our local congregation is having a special craft night, and they asked me for several Sepia toned shots of our local temple to use. Not having much use for B&W of temples, let alone Sepia toned ones, I had to scramble a little, because of course, I said yes!
I set out to tone some of the shots I already had, and also tried to take a couple more as just for fun shots. Here are my just for fun ones. Taken on Successive days. The shot at the top of the post is the the one they chose to use, and is a toned HDR from the spring of 2009 before the open house, and is one of the first shots of the completed temple I took.
