Slowly I started to make a start with Urbex photography. For those who do not know what that is:

Urban exploring, abbreviated urbex or UE, is the visiting and photographing and documenting of infrastructure made by humans, mostly abandoned buildings or locations that are not publicly accessible.

There are a number of things in this definition. It is about photographing old infrastructure, but that can be more like old buildings that have been abandoned. General characteristic is that they are abandoned and that you will find many old things or a poor state of repair.

First, I started with a number of photos of abandoned ships that have probably not seen any maintenance for a number of years. I have viewed many Urbex photos for this and what struck me was the high level of detail. Often HDR photography is used in abandoned buildings. Often you are not allowed in there, so you cannot flash unless you want to announce that you are there. So there remains, photography with the light that is there and then HDR is a solution to get all the details. I have therefore brought out as much detail as possible in the photos, which has a very deep effect on rust and corrosion in particular.

The contrast is often slightly higher than average to accentuate the details. In post-processing I do as much as possible to preserve the original color with as much detail as possible. In fact, you brush away as much of the side effects of HDR as possible, such as brighter colors, while retaining as much detail as possible.

Below as an example the Urbex photos that I have already taken. You can always ask questions about this in the comments on this website or on Flickr.

In The House

In the Urbex album all my Urbex work can be found. You can see the photos on Flickr. Here you can see the newest photo, if you click on it you can view the photos in bulk. You can switch back and forth between the photos with the arrows at the bottom on the side. You can also navigate with the arrow keys or swipe.
