On Fine Art Photography

Often, I find I become bored with showing things they way they appear in real life, rather than the way I see them.  So, rather than a purely documentary capture and treatment of the final image, I tend more towards what many would call fine art photography.  To me, abandoned environments lend themselves quite well to more of an artistic approach, though I know many out there are more purist when it comes to such things.

Who would you call…

… if you knew you had only one hour left on this earth?  Why not call them before that time comes to tell them how much you love them?

Remnants…

I always love coming across abandoned military gear during my explorations. I’ve discovered some really cool stuff, which I almost always leave where I found it. There’s only one thing I’ve kept from all my URBEX adventures, had it framed and get to appreciate it every time I look up at my wall.  What you see here is NOT that, by the way, but it’s still a cool bit of kit!

Just a hole in the wall…

This was one of my favorite abandoned locations to shoot in former East Germany, and getting there early was always key.  For one, sunrises were spectacular.  And another benefit? No security guards impeding the ingress!! By the way, this abandoned WWII German and Russian Cold War military base has hosted countless movie shoots, including Inglorious Basterds and Resident Evil!

 

Music to my ears…

Here’s another shot I edited with my new workflow, which as I noted previously involves merging HDR brackets in Aurora HDR 2018, followed my finishing touches in Luminar.  Once I’ve got a solid workflow down, I’ll see if I can record a quick video tutorial to post on my YouTube channel for those who might be ijterested.
