Cathedral Sitting Room

National Cathedral Sitting Room?

I really need to get out and shoot. Why? Because I'm starting to run out of things to post and plus I haven't been out in a while to get anything worthwhile. The problem is I can't think of a good place to go. Not to mention, I have some other projects around the house going on and those have focused my attention. But, maybe soon I'll get some inspiration from somewhere. With that being said, this is one of the last shots from DC that I have. I have quite a few more, but they really aren't very good. Maybe someday I'll come back to them and try to make something of them.

Anyway, this is another shot from inside the National Cathedral. I'm not sure what the room is for, but it has some beautiful mosaics on the walls and I really like the gothic architecture of it all. I call it "The Sitting Room" because of all the chairs, but I bet it has something to do with either Bible study or Sunday school or something along those lines.

I used the old standard processing for this one.

Some of the specs for this shot are as follows:

Camera: Nikon D90
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6D EX DC HSM Autofocus Zoom Lens
ISO: 200
Aperture: f11
Mode: Aperture Priority
Tripod: Induro AB0
Nikon MC-DC2 Remote Release Cord


  1. Beautiful photo, Evan. Here's hoping you find your mojo again real soon.

  2. I don't know if Dr Evil has it or not, but I'll get it back. I just got to get out there, but the other reason is because it's so friggin' hot! But, soon I may just grin and bear it. Hope you get yours back soon as well!

  3. whoa!!! the amount of Detail is just incredible and the color and lighting are perfect. Great Job!!

  4. I love your photos....Hi Evan, you didn't happen to catch any shots of a wedding that day at the cathedral, did you?

  5. fabulous shot Evan, really excellent details. Go wander around downtown, early on a Sunday morning (6am or so). I did that 2 weeks ago and it really helps, plus there's no tourists in your photos that way!

  6. Hi Rachel,

    Thanks for the compliments! No, the staff there wouldn't allow photographers to shoot any of the nave while a wedding was taking place. They wanted it to remain a private affair and not make any of the wedding party feel uncomfortable, understandably.
