Taken in Natonal Trust Blickling Hall, Norfolk UK March 2012

Well what do I capture straight away as I walk into the rooms of the hall. A lamp shade LOL I just loved the tassle bits and the light filtering through it I just loved the simple beauty of it.

Nikon D90 & 50mm prime lens first proper outing for the lens trying to understand how it works : )

FL 50mm
Exps 1/25 sec
ISo 200
WB Auto
Hand held, very low internal light window blind pulled down to protect interior. A setting, No flash , trial and error

Slight levels changed in CS3 only

A Magpie when it comes to photography I capture anything and everything that captures my eye and lens. A beginner in this field I love how the ordinary becomes less ordinary.

  • Hi Georgie Well trying to get my head round my 50mm prime lens not got the hang of it yet and so massive learning curve. But loved the tassled edges.
