all comments welcome. I hope I did the upload right. I think I selected 1200 pixels on the long side.

Seems you like auto ISO? Get off auto ISO.

Also the white balance needs work. Itís way too warm now. Even if you just sample white off her robe itíll make it just cold enough for it not to hurt your eyes.

I think itís great youíre sitting in church taking photos of your kids lighting candles with this







😅 Awesome

many thanks for the feedback. I am hooked into AutoISO as during ceremonies they walk through different lights, often very dark often by a window. indeed lately I find myself going for warm tones, but I will reconsider something more pleasing.
thanks again.

I like them. The white balance is warm, but it looks pretty reflective of the scene to me. In response to the prior post, I think the silent shutter of this camera makes all the difference vs. a DSLR in a setting like this.

I think the warm tones are very pleasing and capture the essence of candle light. It gives me a feeling of a friendly and inviting church and ceremony. Great job!

As a very old altar boy, when females were not allowed, I find your images bringing back many memories over those years. I loved the Latin Mass and still do but haven't been to one in at least 25 years.
Well done!

Nice captures of something you should be very proud of as a father.
Numbers 2 & 3 are my favorites, but they all tell an important story, and preserve special memories.

There's nothing wrong with Auto ISO in the right situations, and the White Balance in these images look very natural to me, having shot many weddings in the past -- they are not overly warm, but realistic.

+1 for all of this ^

A common issue in churches is developing the white balance to appear consistent among all the frames. That takes a lot of time, and you did it here. I think you have every reason to be proud of everything you've posted here, both from a father's perspective and a technical perspective.

Wonderful set of photos! It can be very intimidating to shoot during a church service so well done. I also think the WB is spot on for how the church probably looked. I especially love the first two.

I agree with most of the posts and disagree with the first post. White balance is warm, but it's a stylistic choice and I think a cooler white balance would make the setting feel "cold" and isolating. Your WB was also very consistent, so I think it works all around. Also, I don't get the comment about not using AutoISO. Why not? You appear to be using a perfectly appropriate shutter speed, bottoming out on the lowest you could probably work with consistently, while also working at max aperture. I'm not exactly sure what you would have gained by not using it?! If anything, you would have probably struggled by either choosing ISO 3200 or 2200 and jacking up your shutter speeds or exposures on either one of the pictures that used the other.

If I have to criticize at all, I'd say the crops are all a little tight. Maybe wider would have allowed a little more atmosphere and more pleasing aspect ratios? Maybe not, though. The first one is quite a nice image, compositionally.

Congratulations Your photos have "Soul" and the first poster does not. I went to Catholic school and the colors look accurate to me.

My "brother" Frank and I attended Catholic schools also. Me from K-12.

Congrats! These bring back many memories!

Dan

PS I find the lighting fine....warm? Yes..... but that is how it appears in many Catholic Churches with the lighting.

I think you did a great job with the pictures.
I to was raised a Catholic, Kindergarten thru 10 grade was a Catholic school and after that, had enough and went to public schools the last two years. I remember being an alter boy although I didn't do it much, my bother did a lot and would do some of the readings as well, he was good at it. Other than a few funerals and weddings, haven't gone back to church since I turned 17.

Excellent white balance.

IĎm no fan of the culture to drag every white balance to some neutral field. Natural light can have every hue from bluish before sunrise to red just before sunset. The same indoors: depending on the light source the light can appear quite reddish (even much more than you allowed). You appear to go for something around or slightly above 3000 Kelvin. I imagine that the actual situation could have been redder (possibly 2800k and in some areas with dominant candle light even less, so most likely you did compensate a bit).

Why use white balance to change the hue to appear as if everything has just been blasted by a battery of 6500 Kelvin flashlights? ItĎs just not natural.

I like your white balance. It appears authentic to the light situation you encountered. It is very consistent. And it reflects the mood of the situation. So what not to like and to enjoy?
