Capturing the less scenic

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

Sometimes, I feel compelled to photograph the less scenic areas I encounter. Sarah and I used to do more of this kind of urban decay photography, particularly when we lived in the Chicago area.

Yesterday, I was itching to get out, and a walk sounded nice. So, I decided to walk through downtown Edwardsville, a neighboring town that is quite run down. It’s sad to see the state of this place, but it makes for some interesting photography. It’s a weird combination of abandoned buildings and buildings that look abandoned, but aren’t. It’s hard to tell, walking around, what is abandoned and what isn’t. Here are some of my photos from this outing.

First, the map:

A few photos and HDR experiments

Monday, July 14th, 2008

Sarah and I did some photography in town yesterday. For me at least, it was mostly a study in texture. I made a few attempts at HDR (High Dynamic Range) images. This isn’t my favorite look but it’s an interesting tool to add to the toolbox. I need to try it on some more varied subjects.
