Muhlenberg College Chapel

A couple of weeks ago my friend Dave Rehrig and I decided to head over to Muhenberg College and photograph the Chapel. I have never seen it before and I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised. It had a very gothic feel and as such, I thought the images would be best viewed in a black & white. In order to capture the glass windows behind me, I used the Olympus OM-D E-M1 MkII paired with the M.Zuiko Digital ED 8mm f1.8 fisheye PRO lens. Take notice to the light fixtures. The subsequent images of the fixtures were shot with the M. Zuiko ED 12-100mm PRO IS lens in order to give me some compression with the shot.

Washington Memorial Chapel

Last weekend during my visit to Valley Forge we stopped by the Washington Memorial Chapel which is located within the Valley Forge National Historical Park. The Images were shot with the Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II using the 7-14mm f2.8 PRO lens. The inside shots were handheld at 1/20 of a second at ISO 3200.

The Chapel was built in 1903 to serve two purposes. The first purpose is as a tribute to George Washington and his service to our country. It currently serves as a wayside chapel for the visitors of Valley Forge National Historical Park. The second purpose is as the home for the Episcopal parish that worships at the chapel.

The chapel is constructed in an impressive Gothic Revival style with a Bell Tower. The Bell Tower houses the Justice Bell, a replica of the Liberty Bell, which was used in the campaign to gain women’s voting rights. The Veterans Wall of Honor honors all veterans of the United States Armed Services.
