Castleography: Intro 1

9 Sep

The other day, while doing my random daily internet browsing, I happened upon two great articles on ephotozine.com & Photographymad.com. They each offer a nice concise guide and some nifty tips on how to photograph castles, from capturing minute details on gargoyles to covering grand castle landscapes.

Check them out:

And just cuz I’m a Merlin fan: the castle they use for the show is downright breathtaking: “château de pierrefonds.” I’ll have to do an analysis of how castles are filmed in shows like this…but that is, of course, for another blog post.

I love all things ancient, specifically castles. As a budding photographer – my goal is to combine both my love of photography and all things old as I learn. I currently live in the fairly peaceful yet dull suburbs of NJ but, when circumstances allow for it, I fully plan on venturing out to see and photograph all and any ancient sites of interest. For now, while living through the internet, I hope to collect enough research to take with me one day when I do set forth. In the meantime, having not come across any blogs on the subject of castles/ancient sites & photography (feel free to correct me if I’m wrong and send any links my way), I look forward to sharing my ideas and thoughts with anyone else out there who’s interested! Keep an eye on this space – more to come soon!
