Photographing Holy Hill
Perched atop 435 acres in southeast Wisconsin, you’ll find Holy Hill, a church that looks like it’s been shipped in from Europe. The Gothic architecture seems oddly out of place among the rural farming landscape, its sharp spires towering above the trees.
I’ve been wanting to see this church in person for a while now and yesterday, Sean and I were finally able to do so. Here are a few of my tips for photographing Holy Hill.
