Tewkesbury Abbey interior

Yesterday Hannah and I spent the day in Tewkesbury. She was singing at choral Evensong at Tewkesbury Abbey and was in rehearsal for most of the day, so I spent a few hours walking around armed with a pair of cameras and a bag of lenses.

I’ve only finished one of the two films, which is exclusively interior shots of the abbey. I knew the inside would be dark so I loaded up my Canon AE-1 Program with a roll of Fuji Neopan 1600 which I pushed to ISO 3200. The result is a set of pictures that are filthy with delicious grain.

These pictures were taken using a Canon 50mm f/1.4, a Canon 28mm f/2.8 and a Cosina 19-35mm f/3.5-4.5. The latter is not a great lens, but it is a lot of fun for this kind of thing.

  1. Nice! I think my favourites are probably the altar candle, the organ, the choir stalls and the angel.

    Also I had a puerile little snigger at the phrase “lady chapel”

  2. Mate, these photos are stunning! I especially like the lone chap sat in among the chairs, and the photo of the organ!
