Broadway Baptist Safari

  • Broadway Baptist 305 W. Broadway Avenue Fort Worth, TX, 76104 United States (map)

Since 1882, Broadway Baptist Church has been an extraordinary landmark for the city of Fort Worth.  It is located between South Main and South Jennings Streets in Fort Worth’s Near Southside. The Gothic style sanctuary inspires and uplifts with its high vaulted ceilings and beautiful stained glass windows. This will be a blessing for any photographer wanting to capture the perfect shot. Join us for this extraordinary event at a world class venue!

We teach you how (and how not) to photograph stained glass windows and church interiors without flash. We then move outdoors to catch exterior views of the Church, with special emphasis on maintaining straight verticals.

At each point on our safari we will review techniques of composition, exposure and lighting. Any camera will do but for the best results, we suggest you bring a wide angle lens equivalent to about 18 mm, a circular polarizing filter, a telephoto of at least 100mm, and enough film or digital media and batteries for about 72 exposures, 400 or 800 speed. For some of the interior shots, you will need a sturdy tripod.

Don’t get discouraged if it is cloudy or rainy that day. Cloudy is good and provides evenly lit scenes and rain gives us nice reflections on the sidewalks.

Specifically, you will leave more comfortable with:
Utilizing Your Camera’s “Manual” Mode
Setting White Balance
Tripods
Wide Angle Lens for Horizontal & Vertical Photos
Telephoto Lens for Architectural Details
Composition
Use of slow shutter speeds

The Broadway Baptist Church “Insider’s View” Photo Safari is part of our Capture Through The Lens Series. We will be joined by a special guest photographer from inside our very own community!
