I have begun a new project. Several months ago, I received a phone call from Sonny Seals. He was looking for a photographer to shoot old churches. He and George Hart have a website featuring historic rural churches in Georgia. The accompanying photos are from my first shoot, The Old Richland Church in Twiggs County. It was built in 1848, and is still an awesome sight.
To meet the criteria, a church must be over 100 years old, be in a rural area, and still be pretty much original.
The aim of the website is to research, document and preserve this special part of Georgia's history. Some of the churches are still in use, some abandoned, some see limited use. Old Richland has been restored and well maintained. Others need some TLC.
The photography is all HDR, done by a group of gifted photographers who are willing to give their time and talents to this worthy cause. And it is addictive, to me, anyway. I love to shoot, love to try new techniques, and love history.
Take a look at the website. http://hrcga.org/richland-baptist-twiggs-2/
Pretty cool stuff.
