Historic Architectural Photography:
1859 St. Joseph’s Church

April 15 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

This historic location gives us a lovely location to learn and practice architectural photography and low-light photography.  The class will begin outside as we photography the church from sunset to twilight.  Then we’ll move inside the church for a chance to photograph inside in low-light.  We’ll work with the church’s lighting plus special lights inside.  Bring your camera with a wide-angle lens and tripod.  A shutter release and flash are helpful but not mandatory.  Travel light.

 1859 St. Joseph’s Church: St. Joseph’s Church is the oldest German Catholic Church in Texas and the oldest wooden church building in Galveston. It was built by German immigrants in 1859. Now de-sanctified and managed by Galveston Historical Foundation, the gothic revival church is distinguished by its elaborately detailed coffered wooden ceiling, delicately painted wooden sanctuary, original pews and hand-carved altars. GHF preserves the building as a museum and makes it available as an event venue.
