General Photography

Post by Octan on 4/30/2011, 9:07 pm

It was about time for a General Photography topic! Grin Try to keep all photos here G-Rated, please. Photography, as being a major hobby of mine [Possibly bigger then Lego®️], I was thinking it would be interesting to let others share their photographs!

This morning I was able to sneak into a old warehouse, all of the shots can been seen on my Flickr, but here are some better ones. Smile 2

Yeah... I had a rather fun time. Grin And to anyone who is reading this, I highly recommend visiting a old warehouse or any other old building, you can really get some nice photographs.

A Nikon D300s with a remote flash, and for a lenses I either use a Quick-Change 35 MM, 30-40 MM, and a 100-250 for really close up stuff. I started out with a D3000 and most of these shots could be taken with a D3000 or even a D5000 with one or two lenses. For my gear bag, I always carry this
•Knife [Swiss Army] to remove plants in a shot
• Light Jacket
• Black T-shirt [Sometimes put like this] for dust and if there is high Police activity
• Lens cloth
• Second T-shirt [green] if I need to hide in vegetation it is great camo.
• Water
• Water shoes

If I am doing any other shot, I pack a lot lighter... But for something high-risk like this, I have to pack heavy.


Remember, this thread is not just for me. Share your photos, also.

Haha... I try to do everything within the law, this site [Warehouse] was not marked so I was not breaking any laws... I hardly ever need to use the camo, but the mask is often used if I am entering a dusty room. Grin Once I explain what I am doing, the Police nine out of ten times will let me back in, but explaining takes time. Grin It is dangerous, but mostly legal. Classic Smile

Just the kind of stuff that makes you think of ghosts and paranormal activity. (I watch too much "Ghost Adventures") I just find it fascinating, how much buildings reflect on it's history and past...it's freaky.

I am also fan of Ghost Adventures. Grin I am fascinated with abandoned buildings, and history. I live in a house that is aprox. 300 years old [Built in 1690] and I am always finding new things on the land, making shoots like this are sort of "In my blood". This building will be gone is less then half a year, Sad they are going to explode it with TNT to build self storage... It is a sin to knock-down buildings like this, I will be visiting it again this weekend to get more photos before the dreaded day.

So your house is being destroyed? How much did they pay you to leave it? I would just have a hard time leaving my home for any amount of money even more so if it's 300 years old.

That's a shame though. I do like Ghost Adventures too but Zack bugs me a bit.

Sorry, I mistyped... The warehouse is being destroyed, not my house. Classic Smile My mind often jumbles, I know what I want to say but I comes in the wrong order. Grin

Oh, that's still sad. What do you know about the building? What was stored there? I'm just curious. I like old buildings too.

From what I was able to figure out from locals it was a papermill, the mill itself has burnt and I did not have a chance to enter what was left of it... It appears the mill was for:
http://www.sonoco.com/productsservices/tubescores/papermill.aspx
The area that I was able to get into was the Truck-Bay and storage areas, in the back there are roads leading into the woods onto a Highway and there are what appears to be very large reams of paper still in a basement area, the stair was filled with trash but I was able to take a peak through a small hole on the floor. I mine as well try to get into the mill when I go this weekend... Classic Smile

My general photography mainly is based on LEGO and SW figures. I'll show you some of my favourite SW figure pictures:




I also took a picture of a deer in JCC's backyard this morning, it'll be posted later.

Octan, you have made me worried! i am now wondering if the old RAF base behind my dad's house will be destroyed!

I will have to get a decent camera, and take some pics. There is no police to worry about up there so I'll need only about half of your gear, plus I own the road its on, so technically we own it...

EDIT- Octan, do you think I should get this?-Clickey
