i love exploring these places...
Wow! Very nice shots. All composed real well. The first one....great contrast. Those are the type of shots I am looking for! Care to share what setting you used. Please tell me this wasn't digital.
thank you very much. they are all film, i'm afraid i didn't record the exposure settings though i'm sure the aperture was somewhere around f8 to allow for faster shutter speed but still get the shadows and detail. i have the printing settings written on the back of the prints that i can post when i get them back from my prof. can i ask why you want to know? thanks again
Anyone who has seen The Blair Witch Project will get a chill looking at those pictures.
Great shots, I think I like the first one the best. The black and white really adds to the mood of the picture.
these are stellar...me likey. i love these types of environments. the history, the stories, the things that may have happened and the effects of the years on these places makes them so interesting. great work. Love the lighting in all of them, the first one in particular.
I was going to include a link here to an amazing photographer that takes pictures in all these abandoned buildings in Denmark, but I can't find it to save my life. ugh. I'll try to track it down and pass it along, he has a ton of work and its phenominal.
Happy friday everyone...woo-hoo!
I must be the different one again... These shots are interesting but I really think that you could do better and hope that you will take this as a challenge.
I get the feeling that you aren't stepping back trying to look at this from an outside perspective and capture the total feeling. If you can go back and take some different angle. I really hate cliche's but become one with the house. Many times if you step back you will see things never seen before.
The whole concept of seeing something through a new set of eyes....
I think the second one is the best. I like the composition and the texture on the wall. I'm a big fan of B&W, and stark desolate images, so this one fills my cup. Nice job!
is it http://www.abandoned-places.com? that site is amazing! i like what you said about 'effect of the years' because that's what i was thinking about during this shoot. thank you for your comments.
i definitely plan on going back, this was for a project for school so i was pressured for time. thanks for your comments
Hedfire, the reason for my request was because I am trying really hard on my contrast. It seems I get so many greys, but not so many black and white. These photo's, again, are stellar. They are in my opinion, very nicely composed and balance out very nicely.
YES. that was it...thank you for posting. wicked cool stuff, great little stories to go along with them too, i think your "?" was part of that url that kept it from working, i think the link below should work. thanks again, ahhhh...now i'm going to get no work done.
man do i know what you mean! out of all the prints i made this semester these were the only ones i consider to be good quality prints. i don't know what troubles you're having exactly but for me it was exposure....if you get a great neg then printing is not a problem at all. other than that try using different filters on the enlarger....higher filter=higher contrast, but i'm sure you already knew that. that's again for the comments
