TN, Silo




This one was a bit of physical and mental challenge to get. Had to do some scary climbing to get up here. I was nervous and shaking some here, couldn't relax. I packed light due to the climbing and tight squeezes, no tripod.

Canon 6D
24mm
f9.0
ISO - 100
shutter - 1/50

I like better with far right side cropped out.

Bump the ISO to 200, you'll be hard pressed to tell a difference but what you will get is faster shutter speed. Even ISO 400 is quite workable.
The sweet spot for this lense is probably f/5.6, anything higher increases lense blur plus slower shutter speed. That's the price you pay for increased field depth; make sure it's worth it.
Experiment with different set ups and compare.

No reason for a tripod to shoot this if you brace the cam on something, but it's much easier the faster the shutter speed. Any moving objects get dicey as you get this low unless you want motion blurring.




Just when I thought I was out... they pulled me back in.

Thanks for the critique. I also don't like the foreground element but its not too big a deal for me. Then again another small part of me likes it for some reason, a nice little imperfection. I figured you'd like the lack of tripod. I knew there was no way i could get it up there.

Dope shot! Love the yellow vibes.

Composition Thought: Might be more interesting if you isolated the chair (the subject) from the window a bit, or had it ENTIRELY swallowed up by the window. Basically you want the subject to not be partially overtaking overlapping with the frame of the window, it takes away focus on it. Unless you had less depth of field in which case the background window would be blurrier and highlight the chair more.

i love the shot but i would crop the left and forces a bit more on the chair or the yellow light.

As an average image viewer what first met my eye was the chair. But the infrastructure around the right side window was next. Add in the ladder. But the best was, how great how the view outside the two windows looked...

First off, I love how I know where this is and never thought of exploring it when I lived in TN.

So, two options here: frame out the wall on the right completely or step back a little and try and line it up to be on one of the lines when you use the rule of thirds, even better if you line the chair up on the opposite third line. Do that and you will have an image with a great focus, color, and even better framing! As is it's still a fantastic image.




no god! please no! nooooooooooooo
