A Seat Among Shambles by tfavretto A Seat Among Shambles by tfavretto
This is a shot from the interior of an abandoned house located roughly 4 km east of Iron Bridge, ON. The house made for a great setting, but it didn't have much that I could single in on as a subject, so I brought this chair along with me to use in the photo.

Photo details:

Camera: Nikon F50
Shutter Speed: ~5 seconds
Aperture: F/22
Film Speed: 100 ASA
Date Picture Taken: April 18, 2006

Scanned from 4x6" print, processed in Photoshop.

wow amazing picture! I'm assuming there is a window behind the camera also to light the chair or did you use any other way of bounceing the light on the chair! Again all I can say is amazing!

Thank you, and thanks for the :+fav:. This is all natural light. I was standing in an open doorway when I took this photo, and there was a large window off to my right as well.

The chair looks comfy, very much at odds with its decaying surroundings. I like the partly desaturated tones in this one!

How'd you bring the chair along with you?? It must be really bulky... ^^ And it looks really nice to sit in!

It's a pretty small chair, it's actually built for a child. It fit easily in the back seat of my car.

So... what do you usually do with that chair?

Not much, it's just been sitting in storage since I was a kid.

I'm relieved you say you brought the chair along... I would have found it decidedly creepy if you'd found it there, perfect among the ruins.

Evocative image!

beautiful shot. have you got an under-exposed shot ? I think that would work VERY well also.

Thanks. And I think you're right. I have already replaced this with a slightly underexposed version.
