The Templar Knights of Cressing

18 Sep 2018 11:23AM   Views : 821 Unique : 378

It's great to stumble upon something that inspires the Inner Photographer and such a place is Cressing Temple Barns in Essex. Great barns from the times of the Templar Knights that show a fascinating style of architecture in wood. Fantastic, plus all the other buildings on the site as well. Entry is free, although we always leave a donation, and it's definitely worth a couple of hours to shoot images or just to explore. A thoughtful viewing platform enables us to get right up into the roof space, and no doubt it is also a great vantage point for wedding photographers.

Kit used here was the Pentax K-3 II with 10-17mm Fisheye Zoom and the 28-105mm zoom, plus the 43mm f/1.9 Limited in the darkest corners. Some corners were very dark indeed and the use of ISO settings up to ISO 25,600 saved the day with rather impessively low noise.

Historic Tyldesley - The Technical College

Always Carry a Camera

I make a point of always carrying a camera, just to capture anything and everything that catches my eye as we carry on with the minutiae of life. I was in Atherton and just heading for the shop that sells fuses and passed a small alleyway that used t...
