CHALLENGE MODE: SHOOT A CASTLE IN ONE HOUR
The challenge was to photograph a Castle, or Gentleman’s Folly, and to show the castle in its best light in just one hour.“Could it be done?” I asked myself when I arrived and saw the size of the place. I didnt know at the time but I was certainly going to try.
I got the gear out of the car and got stuck straight in, it was hard work. I haven’t touched any interior photography in quite a while but I do like to keep my hand in. Looking back I got too bogged down to start with trying to match the flash lighting with the outside ambience coming through the windows so I spent much of the time doing the ground floor realising I only had just short of twenty minutes to complete the upstairs and bedrooms. I had to work quickly!
Once done I finished by photographing the outside and gardens. It was tight, but I just about managed it.
Overall I was pleased with the results!
