Every trip I go on, I try and get some good architectural interior shots, sometimes with people, sometimes without, but usually in some sort of religious building (even though I'm a devout athiest…) Still, you can't beat a good landscape most of the time.


Uspenski Cathedral (Uspenskin katedraali / Успенский собор) is one of the few big landmarks that Helsinki has and is an Eastern Orthodox church built in a typical Russian style. When we arrived here, the inside was almost pitch black, but we asked the man in charge and he allowed us to use tripods.


Luckily near the end of our shoot, all the lights came on and there was a brilliant blue hour appearing through the windows. As you might have guessed from the title, there is a secret door in this cathedral, so see if you can find it. (Viewing it large will help).


You can see the behind the scenes from one of our other Helsinki photoshoots if you're interested in that:
