I was given a guided tour of a disused office building. I really had no idea what to expect before we went in, but quite honestly I was blown away by the place.
I can really see why people enjoy that whole urban exploring thing, though I don’t have the guts for it myself. I could have spent a lot longer in there, it was treasure trove of photographic interest for me. The light was also wonderful too. It was sunny outside, but where the light was coming through windows they were dirty or covered in some sort of film. Where there was only artificial light it was from very old strip lights. The whole place felt a little like some sort of post-apocalyptic hideout.
All shots were taken on the Leica M9 and Zeiss 50mm Sonnar. In terms of process, I’ve been playing again with the RNI film emulators. But after tinkering with them have found that just setting the camera calibration profile in LR to RNI 4.0.0 give me the bit of added colour contrast I needed to suit what I am trying to achieve quite nicely.
Anyway, here are the images …
