Manti Temple pictures by Dane Shakespeare

Historic Architecture

The LDS Manti Temple in Manti, UT after a rainstorm. After doing a shoot for a client in Salt Lake City, I decided to take the scenic back roads to St. George (the long way) and was lucky enough to get a shot of this beautiful structure built in 1888.  Interestingly enough, the picture was taken hand held with a relatively poor lens – Canon EOS 70D with 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens.  The lens a stock lens or a kit lens and is rarely used, but I left my best lenses in Salt Lake City to be cleaned and calibrated so I was happy that it turned out.

The most common question I get is whether or not these Manti Temple pictures are real or not.  Some say it looks like a painting when printed on canvas, others wonder if it is a composite or if the clouds were added.  Actually it is a single shot and the clouds are real.  It’s amazing how the rain brightens up everything, especially when the sun comes out and lights it all up.

What’s in my bag?
