    Hallo MrCupcakes, and welcome to ThePhotoForum.
    These are quite many and very interesting Urban Exploration pics, which are so "urban" in fact that I will move them from the Landscape and Nature Gallery over to the General Gallery, ok? :D
    And you use an SLR camera for these and later scan your prints?
    They look like "film photos" to me (as opposed to digital).
    You venture into the eeriest, creepiest rooms... whoa!

    Yes, I still shoot film, im only 19, but i'm oldschool. I learned with a AE1 and than cut my teeth on a T50, and with my refund this year, i bought a Rebel T2
    The first two pictures are from a burned out dress factory in New Bedford mass, all shot with my T2.
    Pictures three and four are from a old nike missile base that has had about 20 diffrent companies in it, and soon avalon bay will build condos on it, i hear. shot with my T50
    Pictures 5 and 6 are from Northampton State Hospital, a old kirkbride mental asylum that over 120 years old, and will be torn down to put up condos. Shot with my T50
    Pictures 7 and 8 are from a County Jail put in springfield, shot with my T50
    9,10,11,12 and 13 are from metropolitan state hospital in waltham, shot with my T2.
    I hear about the places through word of mouth and simply driving around. Industial places you find in industrial towns, usually near rail road tracks, state hospitals are usually situated on top of hills and such.

    Oh yea, i forgot to mention, I dont condone these activities by other people, cause half the time its tresspassing, and the other half the buildings are condemed/unsafe floors and such. Im not trying to be a badass with that statement, im protecting myself from getting sued

    Hey, nice work. :thumbup: I had them pegged as film shots, as well - wonderful look and feel to them.

    I especially love the exposure in #7.

    #10 just gives me the creeps. I mean, the paper is still on the table. :pale:

    I love having reactions like this to images, so I must say you did a good job. :lol:

    Keep 'em coming. And, you know, be careful. ;)

    Welcome to the forum!

    I really like #2, if only the barrel wasn't there. I also like #5 and #13. I love the red on the wall of #13 and the DOF of #5, but I do think you could add some contrast on #5.
