"Olde" Style Houses

Hello! I visited a failed development full of "olde tyme" styled homes. I was trying to capture the charm of these ruins and would like some tips on my photography. These are all unedited (I have practically no editing experience) so any tips on that would be welcome as well!











Also I was having trouble getting the foreground and background to be in focus here.

Nice pictures. There are a few little things I would do differently but they're more concepts than specific things and would take way too long to explain. For the last one, you need to close down the aperture. You'll need to be in aperture or manual mode for this, and you just need to make the F value higher. Personally though, I think it would look best with just the foreground in focus.

Once you start editing your pictures, make sure you're shooting in RAW. This will give you the most flexibility in adjustments and help you save otherwise unusable shots.

Just keep shooting and learning new things and your pictures will get better every time.

Overall you're doing pretty well. As time goes on you'll get better and better at framing subjects. Don't be afraid to try different techniques and compositions which subjects. Do what feels right and you'll set your own path for it.

I shoot in RAW because I was told to despite all the space it takes up
My aperture was f13. I thought that was pretty high. How high do you usually need to go for that kind of foreground/background shot? If you want to share concepts that would be much appreciated too!

Thanks! I've been experimenting and hopefully will slowly improve.

So, I did some quick edits, I think might help. Best to get framing and exposure right when you're taking your shot. But, whatever.

If you aren't going to edit at all, no need to shoot raw. You can set up your jpegs to look kind of how you want in camera. But you won't have much left to work with if you did want to edit.

AT f13, you could focus on the skates, or at least closer to the skates, and the buildings would have been either in focus, or acceptably so.



watch your vertical lines. These edits aren't perfect, but making them straighter, and... isolating the subjects a bit more.
