    ...was partially filmed in the Manfield Reformatory, here in Ohio. I went on a field trip there, where, for a fee, we had complete free roam of the joint. What a fantastic, creepy experience it was! I had a real hard time finding what I thought were interesting shots partly because I was just soooo overwhelmed by the place, and partly because everything started looking the same. Peeling paint EVERYWHERE! I am talking the big long curls of paint. It made everything "fuzzy" and lose definition. I post a few now, and some more later.

    This was my "shot of the day". Taken with my new 100mm Macro lens. This lens is definately a step up from the kit lenses. Great focus and clarity.

    I'll post more later. Still processing and weeding out the better.

    #1 amnd #2 seem over clarified and have lost definition in the edges.

    i dont know if its just from the original or post work but maybe instead of upping clarity (if thats what was done) you can run some USM

    Oh man, what I wouldn't give to have 5 models, two days and my whole studio with me in that place.

    What a great location.

    Very Nice. I like #2 better on your second post of pictures. Gives it that rustic feel and goes with the theme of the place more.

    What type of lighting were they using for those 4 rooms to get the cross beam?

    Sunlight.
    Untouched, natural, as it occurs through the windows, sunlight.
    No tricks.

    What a fantastic location. And your images capture the solitude and decrepitude of the place. Really well done

    I absolutely love these! Being quite a depressing person, I can really 'feel' them if that makes sense! Great stuff xxx
