I visited Coughton Hall with family today, and since it was the first time I visited a National Trust location, I was shocked at the entrance fee, compared to what it offered. Perhaps it’s suited more for the older generations, I do not know. However, it was quite interesting.
I used the opportunity to be able to properly test out my camera, a Nikon D3300. It’s an entry level DSLR, but it’s a good starting place to get into it.
Whilst there was a lot I would have liked to have photographed within the building, it was too busy to be able to be comfortable to take a decent photograph. However, one thing that caught my eye was a bookcase.
After which, we decided to explore the grounds a bit more, and see what else the garden has to offer, to which I got a few snaps of some rather nice flowers.
The rest of my family spotted a butterfly that was not moving too much, so I decided to have a go with my bigger lens.
Not exactly sure what I was doing, but I took a lot of photos, hoping one would come out. Thankfully a few did.
After the day was done, I was happy with what I had achieved. I still have a long way to go to become a decent photographer, but I can see why people get the photography bug.
