34 Photographs of Cathedral and Church Interiors That Rock


Some subjects just lend themselves to amazing imagery. The interiors of religious structures like cathedrals are one of those subjects. We think that this collection brings that through beautifully. Some might break the occasional photographic “rule” like converging verticals or overcooking the saturation – it's just that we're having one of those days where we don't really care. Sometimes it's just great to look at gorgeous subjects taken for the pure pleasure of it. Enjoy, and share yours in the comments!

Here is a capture inside one of the beautiful Meteora monasteries in Greece that you will seldom see. The gilt edges on the carvings and intricate ceiling paintings are riveting to behold.

Been photographing church interiors for years and I have quite a collection. Some are on my website (attached) under “Places of Worship”. Feel free to check them out and comment.

Totally awesome photo’s. Love everyone of them and wish there was those type of church’s here in Kansas City to shoot.

These are beautiful stuctures. I make it a point to shoot the local religious venues when I travel. Great subject Rob!
