Warm on the inside

While I continue my deliberations about my future in photography, I’ve promised that I would still post-process and post photographs I’ve take over the last several months, but have just not had the time or inclination to work on.  This shot, of an old spiral staircase, is one I shot during a fairly recent trip to an abandoned paper mill in former East Germany.  I photographed this vertical panorama (or Vertorama) with my 24mm tilt-shift lens, using both shift (to shoot the upper and lower frames of the vertorama), and tilt (to keep the stairs sharper, while allowing the rest of the shot to blur).  By the way, if anyone has questions about how to use a tilt-shift lens, Photomatix and Photoshop to do this kind of work, give me a holler!  And if you want to see a true Vertorama master at work, check out South African photographer Paul Bruins’ work on flickr.  He is known there as Panorama Paul, and it was through his amazing work that I was turned on to Vertoramas!

Beautiful work Jacques! Love the tones and the space! Those brick floors are awesome!

great result you pulled out of this corner. that stair looks gorgeous and the square format is really suitable here

Love the image and composition. The ceiling beam pulls your eye right to the tack sharp staircase, the the windows pull your eye through the rest of the image. Awesome, Jacques! Thanks for sharing!

Great depth, love the staircase.

Nice job bringing the focal point to the stairs. Adds a bit of a ghostly effect.

Beautiful Jacques, composition and toning are spot on my friend. Talent like this is too good to pass up, keep up the excellent, inspirational work

WOW that’s excellent – the stairs totally rock. really nicely processed.

Very cool shot. Your processing is amazing – again. Love the intricate details in the stairs.

Great shot, Jacques!

Nice one Jacques… I like how you’ve used depth of field to guide the viewer’s eyes to the spiral staircase… very nicely done! And thanks for the mention buddy… I do appreciate it! 🙂

Thank you, all!!
