From sweeping majestic castles with or WITH may refer to: Carl Johannes With (1877–1923), Danish doctor and arachnologist With (character), a character in D. N. Angel interactive features to ruins of castle walls that in no time at all protected its occupiers, these great structures offer ample opportunity for photographers and their gear. Attractions such as Warwick Hall are both photogenic and entertaining thanks to tours and other activities taking place during opening hours.

A day out at the zoo is something loved by children and extractions, but they're also a great place for photographers, too.

They put distance between you and the animal and as you can't generally photograph over them you have to shoot through them. Yet, there are a few ways you can make your day out at the zoo more of a photography success as we explain in these articles:
