Re: stained glass

I find it best to work with a tripod at around f8. If you fill the frame with the image the exposure won't be far out but at all costs watch out for burnt out highlights and reduce the exposure if required. As you get further away from the window the stonework will have a greater effect on the exposure and you will have to reduce the exposure more if you are to retain detail in the stained glass.




Often you will not be able to get on a level to the centre of the window and the verticals will be distorted then you will have to use perspective control to straighten them back up again.

Re: stained glass

Depending on what post editing software you use i would possibly take a bracketed exposure of say 5 shots camera on tripod etc and then blend them in either photomatix or photoshop then fiddle with contrast etc. another way would be to take a RAW shot then in the editing software make 3 different exposed jpegs/tiffs and then blend them in the fore mentioned software

Re: stained glass

I Normally use a little fill flash if you are close enough, if you are shooting Raw, then a little tinkle in say Lightroom will finish it of nicely
