Conker Fighting – 16/10/2016
ISO 3200, f/5.6, 1/200
Its only fair I continue with my Autumn theme in this weeks photo, last time you saw our humongous collection on conkers and this week you get to see what we do with them. Yes, you got it, conker fighting!!!
This year brought a huge change in how we play conkers as Lewis has now grasped how to throw the conker perfectly thus making himself a perfect competitor. We had a fantastic family evening, with the kids Nanny, Uncle and Great Aunt & Uncle.

As you can tell Leah needs to perfect her technique.

Photographing a conker fight in the dark was pretty difficult, getting the focus right proved the most trickiest as the lighting was really helped by being sat under a white gazebo where I could use the flash directed above me to even out the lighting for the photographs. This is the only photograph I got of a smashing conker, at you can tell the focusing and shutter speed were both out but I was still pleased to press the trigger at just the right moment.
