    Shot this at the Greensboro Roundhouse on last day before demolition of the buildings- it was built in the late 1800's - abandoned in or around 1970 - due to the oil pits the interior was plant free but had lots of great graffiti -

    Was one of my fav shooting locations -

    2nd shot is the most abstract yet beautifully taken image.

    Love the first shot. The others fall shy for me due to lack of detail. What do the prints look like?

    I really like the series. What a shame to lose such a location. The lighting you used is great, very dramatic.

    Yes, a loss indeed. Great location.

    The second shot is my fave, due to its abstract quality. The lighting is very striking in that shot (the way it outlines her arm and leg), but I do wish there had been a bit more detail in the dancer.

    #2 looks great... Is it just me or does the third letter by the ballerina's head look like another head standing close beside her?

    I like the first one the most--it's got some really awesome contrast.

    What did you shoot these with? And how did you do the lighting?

    Nikon d80 - 17-55mm 2.8 Nikkor - 47" Octa

    I set the octa coming in from the side because I felt if I came in from the front she would have looked flat, I wanted to catch the textures as well as her movements.
