Photo Friday Destruction Winner Gav
What camera did you use? This shot was taken with a Nikon D7000 and a Samyang 8mm Fisheye Lens
What settings did you use? ISO-100, f 11, 20 second exposure, Aperture priority
I bracketed 3 shots (+2,-2) and edited them in Photomatix, then CS5 to add some contrast and sharpen a little.
What inspired this shot? This shot was inspired by the work of my favourite artist, Andrea Govia. His urban exploration shots are some of the most incredible images I’ve ever seen and he almost exclusively shoots in abandoned asylums, hospitals, hotels etc.
Did you edit this image, if so what did you do and with what program? I use Photoshop for all my images, even if it’s just for minor contrast, saturation tweaks, or full on manipulation. It’s the second most useful tool a photographer has on offer (second only to your camera), if you’re serious about creating great images, take some time to learn Photoshop!
Do you have any advice for our community of photographers? My advice to other photographers is to get out there and take lots of photos, explore new and interesting locations and don’t be scared to get outside your comfort zone! There are some amazing places out there that are just waiting to be photographed, you just have to be motivated enough to go find them 🙂
Where was this photo taken? This pic was taken inside the old Larundel Mental Asylum in Bundoora. As you can see it’s been destroyed by vandals but there are still plenty of things interesting enough to photograph, the bath in particular.
