Today I was in Worcestershire just outside Bromsgrove visiting the Avoncroft Museum. The museum is home to over 30 different historic buildings that have been rescued, dismantled and debuilt in 19 acres of countryside.
I took the D800 and the 50mm f/1.8 standard lens with me today, as I thought that I would need the speed of the 50mm lens. I wasn’t wrong.
The shot below was taken in the medieval townhouse, in which tables were set out for dinner and a volunteer in costume was making pottage over an open fire. The light was through large windows covered in a gauze which gave a nice soft light over the scene. The photograph was taken on manual at 1100 ISO, 1/100 second at f/1.8 and +1/3 stop.
