Saints Volodymyr and Olha Church

SVOC Colors & Curves

Saints Volodymyr and Olha Church is a beautiful church in Chicago’s Ukranian Village.  I was allowed to photograph from the choir loft.  I wanted to create a composition that would capture the dramatic curve of the choir loft railing and still include the beautiful view of the church windows, arches, and a huge radiant chandelier.

This image was developed using HDR software in order to balance the bright light of the stained glass windows and the darker church interior.

You can view more photos of this impressive church in my flickr album for this church.

    • Thanks, Mary. I’ve photographed 3 churches now and each one is unique. They are like humankind’s offering of a giant architectural flower up to God. I’m sure I will be shooting more of them in the future. And it’s quite a symbol that I shot this on my BIRTHDAY!
