Maybe she's born with it. Maybe it's methamphetamine.

These pictures spawned from a debate (see: http://www.uer.ca/...=1&threadid=131241). I work as a lighting technician and they were taken on the job from the top of a fly-rail about sixty feet in the air. Whether it's truly urbex or not, the lighting from the ground package was very unique.

My first pictures! Your opinions are always appreciated.

Those red lights against that skeletal structure do create a neat effect.

Take my suggestion as a grain of salt. I may not know what I'm talking about.

But if I were you, I would use pictures of cool lighting to enhance exploration photos. This is a poor example I made just now (using your picture over mine- I hope that's OK); I think it gets my idea across.



If you have it, blend modes like colour burn, screen, multiply and overlay, are fun to play with in photoshop. They can create a double exposer effect.

I really like that, actually. Thanks for the suggestion.

Looks like a fun job. Reminds me of an active theater I did one time.

The fun is about equal to the stress.

No problem, I like collecting shots of interesting lighting effects (ex. Christmas lights shining on snow) to use for this reason and as inspiration for drawings. When you said you were lighting tech my mind jumped to it.

It's great you can spend your breaks at work appreciating cool scenery! Even if they don't fit into a tidy definition "urban exploration" they are wicked industrial pictures.


That's surprisingly cool.


Thanks to UrbanDK

Up the rails. That "skeletal" structure is a rigging grid where all the chain motors hang. The red light is coming from the ground; I don't remember the band, but they had a set of deck lights that they used upstage. It was cool.

Yeah, I've been a nerd for lighting since before I knew it was someone's job to do it at concerts. It's the perfect career for me.
