Justin’s top tips

Amateur Photographer - - Technique -

1 Take ad­van­tage of the moat and shoot re­flec­tions of the cas­tle and the sur­round­ing land­scape. A cir­cu­lar po­lariser is use­ful here for mak­ing the most of the re­flec­tions, but be care­ful not to overdo it. Try shoot­ing the re­flec­tion and not the cas­tle it­self for a dif­fer­ent ap­proach. 2 Use side-light­ing to cap­ture the shape and tex­ture of the cas­tle, and to add a sense of depth and di­men­sion. The cas­tle it­self is a ruin so there are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties for shoot­ing crum­bling stonework. 3 Em­brace the sym­me­try of Bo­diam Cas­tle by com­pos­ing your im­age to cen­tre ev­ery­thing and cre­ate a sense of calm and tran­quil­lity.
