Potential Shoot Locations – St Mary’s Church

St Mary’s Church

I previously photographed at St Mary’s Church in Tintern for a college project. The overgrown ruins and graveyard makes the perfect spot for creating image’s with an uncomfortable feeling to them. Although I do not necessarily want the whole church within the background as there are no need for religious connotations within my work, I feel the stone walls with its overgrown weeds, and stone floor within the ruins would be perfect for the unsettling images I want to create. The church does not get many visitors as it is not well known, which makes it great for creating images without getting disturbed.

As I previously shot here my familiarity would help plan a shoot, unlike the other locations I have spoke about that I have not worked in before. I know that the lighting would be great to shoot in as it pours in through the windows. I want to use a smoke bomb within the church to give the work an atmospheric feeling.
