PostSubject: Colditz episode 3. The gate..   Sat Aug 19, 2017 6:42 am

Spent a lot of time trying torches and different lights , to do this night time. Session , couldn't quite seem to get it right , it was either two dark or to light ,  I was a bit disappointed in the results they were taken on my iPad as always, maybe need a better camera ( or photographer) .
Got fed up of fumbling around shining torches in the dark, my neighbours probably thought I was burying a body with all the swearing and scraping about ..
But had to move the story on...here's the result..
Anyway .....


Our heroes are being led through colditz castle by willie ..
They have decided to avoid the front gate after the incident with Dawkins, and have gone to the west gate
So far so good , but now the ultimate test
The gate..


























Willie manages to talk his way through the guards at the gate,
He tells them he has to take them to the ss for interigation .
Nearly there..





















They are stopped by an officer who has been listening to them talking to the guards at the gate.
He draws his Luger And says , to willie ....I spent time in England in London before the war...   willie looks worried and says back in Officer.. yes sir ..
The officer says ...I have never heard a corporal in the German army with a cockney accent .....

Smithy draws his pistol.......   all hell is let loose..































Willies bit hit it doesn't look good..


Get away I'll try and hold them off..





























Poor willie ...he didn't last long..


Episode 4 ..coming soon

Another fantastic instalment Dean, I think you've got the lightning spot on! Dark enough to get the full effect of evening but just enough light to see all the action.

cheers cheers

Awesome stuff Dean, and I have to disagree mate, the photos came out spot on in my opinion. They look very gritty and real! Top work indeed!, really looking forward to part 4! bounce bounce bounce

They do look good , worth trawling ebay for a bargain camera and mini tripod though , these are good for a camera on a laptop , think what you could do with a better quality camera . bounce

Absolutely brilliant atmospheric photos with a great story!!! The slight grainy look really adds to the story, it gives it a kind of old war film look and makes the story look like it was filmed in October time with a slight fog hanging in the air, the lighting also adds to the tension. And remember, they never had HD DSLR cameras back in WW2...

Carry on with your photo set up sir!cheers

you could use a torch light as a search light and the glow would give you plenty of light

but I like what you did looks great
