Radovljica - Church of Saint Peter

Beautiful frescoes on the vaulted ceiling of Saint Peter's Church in Radovljica, Slovenia.
It’s often believed that photography is easy: just turn up and click the shutter, right? But 99% of the time that couldn’t be further from the truth. However, on this occasion it is hard to deny. For this photo, in which I was demonstrating how to photograph the beautiful vaulted ceiling at the Church of Saint Peter in Radovljica for students on my recent workshop, I had to lie down on the floor and setup my tripod in such a way that I could point the camera directly upwards. As we were indoors working in low light conditions a tripod was essential, and the best way to do it was to lie down. The perfect excuse!
