Another from the weekend abandoned cottage shoot. I really liked the textures and colour on this old door and the 50mm lens did a good job of capturing it. The plants behind the door were a bit distracting so I decided to desaturate them to keep the emphasis on the door. I think it works?
Went exploring some derelict cottages near Donadea Forest Park with my friends Tom and Damien this morning. When we arrived at our first location it was hard to know where to start as there was so much potential all around us. I remembered Brian Matiash`s sound advice from a post on his blog last year “get the gimme shots out of the way”. In other words, take all the obvious shots, before concentrating on details and angles.
With this in mind I decided to use only my 50mm 1.4 to force myself to move around a bit more and find the shot.
