here stands an empty house…

…it used to be full of life.

I had two different things on my mind when I shot and processed this photograph, and I listened to Loreena Mckennit’s Dante’s Prayer, as well as Alison Moyet’s This House, while post processing.  This particular photograph is actually a vertical panorama, or Vertorama as it is often called.  It is the product of 18 brackets (9 for the top half and 9 for the bottom half).  While stitching panoramas together sometimes in a need for extensive cropping, there was none of that in this particular piece because I used a tilt/shift lens to get my brackets, shooting one set of 9 brackets (the top half) with the lens shifted up, and the last 9 brackets (for the bottom half) with the lens shifted down.  This is one of the biggest reasons I love tilt/shift lenses.

This is just awesome! Love the textures on the walls and floor and the exposed brick…! Especially that one left-over piece of ceiling that keeps you looking for a few minutes more. The shot is even more impressive after watching your workflow on Vimeo – I can now see more clearly how your pieces come together. Thanks for sharing that.

Hey there, Eyal. Thanks so much for the great comments. Glad the video put the pieces into place a bit more. I find there are a lot of photogs out there who hoard their skills, which I think is insane, but more and more folks are opening up more, I think.

Outstanding. You are a true urbex master! Very inspired!!!
