SAINT PATRICK’S CHURCH AND HALL IN GALWAY

Don’t worry, I am not becoming religious but here in Ireland there are so many churches that it is impossible not to photograph them.

As it is not mentioned in any tourist guides or listings I found the modern St. Patrick’s church by accident. During my last visit in 2015 I did notice the old church but as the gates were locked I could not gain access and was therefore unaware that there was a new modern church beside it. This time I noticed a small narrow lane off Eyre Square [St. Patrick’s Avenue] and at the end of the lane I discovered an open gateway which provide access the church grounds and then I discovered that there were two buildings. There is also a third entrance at Foster street.

This time I paid two visits to the church in order to experiment with two different lenses. For this the second visit I used a Voigtlander 15mm ultra-wide-angle lens. The other lens was a Zeiss Batis 25mm.

The original church was built in 1842 but later modified making it less ornate. More recently This former church has been modified to provide two floors of accommodation for its present use as a hall, a change of use which continues a social and community function. The ashlar limestone front elevation to this simple structure displays finely detailed Gothic Revival features and gives it an imposing presence. The high quality of carved and cut-stone details in the various elevations and window and door openings adds interest to the building.

Committed to highest quality Lenses that support latest camera technologies with high precision mechanics the brand new Voigtlander Super Wide-Heliar 15mm f/4.5 Aspherical III Lens for Sony E can be used on Sony E-Mount cameras without an adapter. This new line is covering an extreme wide angle range and is perfect for landscape and architecture photographers as this extreme wide lens is creating a fast and smooth communication between lens, camera and photographer. If enabled the camera changes automatically in magnifying mode during focusing which allows highest accuracy and all lens-relevant data such as focal length, aperture and focal distance are transmitted to the camera. This data is shown in the viewfinder/display and used for metering and image stabilization.The selective aperture control system for full frame is used for the first time in this lens - a vital feature for filmmakers as it allows a stepless and soundless aperture control. Voigtlander Sony FE lenses offer EXIF info, Lens Menu Correction, Manual Focus Assist, Manual Focus Distance indication, Electronic Front Curtain Shutter capability, and 5 Axis Image stabilization. One aspherical element is also used in the 11 elements, 9 groups design, and helps to reduce spherical aberrations throughout the aperture range. The manual focus design affords fine-tuned control over focus placement, along with a minimum focusing distance of 11.8", and a Selective Aperture Control System allows you to de-click the manual aperture ring for smooth, silent exposure adjustment to benefit filmmaking applications.Features: Voigtlander's popular 15mm f/4.5 III Leica M-Mount now in Sony FE-MountUltra Sharp, Wide Angle ActionAbility to de-click the apeture built into the lensAbility to have in-camera corrections, auto magnification and EXIF dataManual Focus
