It was a bitter wind that worked it’s way through the abandoned asylum. A wind that chilled us to the the core. The light was constantly changing as the clouds and occasional sunlight raced by. I was nursing a blank unthinking state that I inherited from the Christmas bash I’d been to the night before. My Canon seemed overkil for what I wanted to shoot so I opted to shoot with my Fuji X100 instead. There are a couple of Canon shots here but like the Quadra kit my 5D seemed to invasive for the moment.
I was joined on the shoot by my friend and fellow photographer Brett Symes. Between us we managed to direct and construct several scenarios. Chloe Jasmine provided the level headed thinking and the fabulous palette of emotion that I’ll never tire of shooting. This really is the result of a team effort. Enjoy
Shooting in locations like this is more of an ordeal at this time of the year but as these buildings will have probably been flattened by the Spring we decided to shoot now anyway. Never ignore the need to feed the soul with ideas and inspiration. We often spend so many hours shooting for our customers we neglect to make the time to shoot for ourselves.
