Shooting in Abandoned Buildings Part 3

Welcome to the third and final post on shooting in abandoned buildings – at least until I find another one…

These were all taken at the same location, which is a house miles from anywhere, falling into serious decay. Some kids had obviously been smashing thing up in there, so we didn’t linger too long. All shots on a Canon 60D and 15-85mm.

There was stuff left everywhere by the last occupants, including this typewriter on an old bench – this really was exactly as it was found. Processed with a light green and a cloudy blue layer in Photoshop.

This book (along with quite a few others) were thrown around the overgrown garden. The battered paintwork made a grim background. I was surprised how well these paperback books survived outside.

More abandoned stuff – I wonder where this suitcase has been in the past.

This empty frame against the bashed up wallpaper and plasterboard made a ‘frame within a frame’ shot.

These must be the handprints of some other visitors – strange how they wanted to leave their mark somewhere.

This single page of a book blowing around in the garden had just escaped a fire judging by the burned edge. This was underexposed but RAW saved the day!

Finally a chair in the vandalised kitchen – Lensbaby ‘cheat’ effect down each side using the ‘miniature’ image processing filter on the 60D.

As always these shots are taken for the book cover market, and all comments, critiques and questions are welcome.

Thanks for looking – hope you like them and they give you some creative ideas for your photography. If you do go shooting in abandoned buildings take care and don’t go alone.
