TITANICA BY ROWAN GILLESPIE

TITANICA BY ROWAN GILLESPIE PHOTOGRAPHED USING A ZEISS BATIS 135mm LENS

This was my biggest photographic project ever and it involved me spending five days in Belfast during what I believed would be the week that the UK. including Northern Ireland, left the European Union but while I was there it became clear that the 29th. of March would not be the day of exit and that April 12 might be the date if things did not go well for the British PM.

I brought three lenses [Batis 25mm, Batis 135mm and a Voigtlander 40mm] on the one that I liked best was was the Batis 135.

In front of the Titanic Belfast building is Titanica, a sculpture by Rowan Gillespie depicting a diving female figure. Made of bronze, it is mounted on a brass base, evoking the design of figureheads on ships' prows, and is meant to represent hope and positivity. The figure was dedicated by representatives of the Anglican, Catholic, Methodist and Presbyterian churches on 27 March 2012, a few days before the opening of Titanic Belfast.

MY MAIN CAMERA

SONY a7RIV

The camera has a full-frame 61MP BSI-CMOS sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. Personally I find it to be much better than my A7RIII
