Le Manoir de la Guérinière

This year has been a year of snapshots and I am so happy there has been such a variety so far. To change it up yet again, this post showcases photos from my last concert and visit at Le Manoir de la Guérinière.

Le Manoir de la Guérinière

Based in Passais Villages of the Orne department (61), The Manoir is a building dating from the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries. The building first came about when the English left Normandy in the 1600s. The initial edifice was constructed out of red granite.

The house is referred to as a manoir, not the traditional assumption of a chateau. A chateau generally refers to the feudal castle, designed to defend the town and its population from its enemies, while the manoir is the large home of the landowner, and usually unfortified.

The Manoir is privately owned and available for tours on an appointment basis.

Equipment Used

Camera Body: Canon 6Dmarkii
Lenses: Canon 70-200mm f/4.0, Canon L 24-105mm f/4.0

Other Photography Notes

Taking photos outside on bright days may not seem challenging, but with strong direct sun, comes strong contrasting shadows. The contrast can be used for advantageous creative shots, but also can cause havoc for portraiture. Luckily, as this was only outside building and crowd shots, there was no real worry about exposure.

I am currently taking bookings for shoots. Feel free to get in touch for information!
