Skipton Castle Photo Shoot


I went to Skipton with my friend Dawid for a casual photo shoot today. Nothing like a bit of photo fun on a Sunday!  He’s just got a new Nikon D300 (I know, Canon is better!) which he wanted to test out. We were planning to head for the woods but the British weather wouldn’t allow for an outdoors photo shoot. We therefore headed to Skipton to check out Skipton Castle. Below are some of the Skipton Castle photos – the rest are available here.

The castles window (or shooting vantage point) made a great cross. Depending on how you photograph the cross, you show allegiance to either good or evil. (or whatever)

A leaf was on the ledge outside a window. I thought the dirt on the window made a cool effect. Aperture: F22, Shutter: 1.3s, ISO 100

A rather unusual sight: a cannon with a spinning umbrella. Dawids idea of putting the umbrella in the cannon made a great shot by itself, and spinning it whilst the shutter was open made the photo something special. Aperture: F8, Shutter: 4s, ISO: 100

Who knew that thered be ghosts at Skipton Castle! The wonder was made possible with a combination of flash and long shutter speed. Aperture: F14, Shutter: 4s, ISO: 100

A great day out despite the weather. Will probably be more like it again soon!

Cherio!

    I guess the prisoner is escaping really slowly given the shutter speed of 4s😉
