Brisbane City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

Massive props to +Rhys Flux for escorting me through this no-longer-used tenancy. The fittings on this floor are partially dismantled.

The camera & lens:

Camera: Canon EOS 400D DIGITAL
Lens: Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 II @ 25mm
Filters: 0.42x fisheye filter (fisheye mode)
Exposure: 0.4" @ f/4, ISO 1600 ((10.5mm equiv))

Post processing:

Lightroom -

  1. Curves: highlights +90, lights +40, darks -5
  2. Clarity +100
  3. I played with lens correction to try to correct the the perspective (I'd prefer to have stood more to the left) and with the angle of view, but it didn't look quite right, so left it as it was.

The wash-up:

I would have brought my tripod! All the sites talking about photographing abandoned places (although they talk about places not touched for 20 years) talk about bringing a tripod.

I also would have corrected the flare - maybe even to the point of encouraging it.

What would you do?
