Every once in a while... it happens. Not much, but In Some cases, I actually like my color photo better than black and white. I feel like the color shot in this case can convey the emotion better. It translates better, if you will. One good thing about photography is you can’t tell how scared I was in the moment. Lemme tell ya, I was pretty nervous. To paint a picture (no pun intended) this was taken in a wing of the school. I walked into a door with a long hall, take a hard left and you end up in here. My back was to a huge doorway. So? you say, right? Wrong! this means my back was turned, anything could happen. I’m vulnerable. This is not cool. Anyone who does urbex photography; ALONE knows that feeling or, they don’t go alone. I won’t try to express the dangers, everytime I post one of these I talk about it. I will say though, having your back to an open door is stupid, that’s rule number 1. Don’t make yourself vulnerable. For that reason, this one had me shaking in my chucks. When I saw this room though, there was no way I was leaving without this shot. My problem is I get all pumped and lose my head. I gotta learn how to sow down, take it easy and find the shot. I get all crazy and shoot first and ask questions later. Like some crazy 2nd amendment loving redneck. It’s one of my flaws with this. Plus, I was watching the clock, I had things to do. So, I framed this out and got the hell out! I wish I would have kept my head on my shoulders and shot more. I know where it is, I just hope I don’t lose the nerve to go back.
