In his presentation, Jeff will cover the preparation and planning necessary for a successful shoot, some thoughts on safety and security, as well as some tips on the equipment needed to assure a great outing. He will also cover strategies that will help photographers get the most out of the often limited time available to them in shooting these locations. Finally, Jeff will offer suggestions for photographic techniques, including the use of HDR post-processing that will help overcome the often-difficult lighting conditions found in old and abandoned spaces.

Come hear and learn techniques of photographing abandoned buildings. He will share what equipment to use along with lighting techniques to get the best photographs in typically low light situations. He will also share tips on post-processing those photos.
