Photo Project 24 #6 – The Accidental Ghost Town
Unfortunately there is a chain link fence surrounding this structure and while we could have shot through it at pointblank range and it would basically disappear, we really wanted a clean view, although this meant getting fairly close. In order to capture the complete building from the short distance required a wider lens so we threw a 24-70 on the camera and pulled it back to 24mm. We were still at ISO 50 and f/5.6 would give us a decent depth of fieldÂ which left is with a 1/250th shutter speed. The fast shutter was needed since Chris was holding the camera over his head to avoid the fence and a fast shutter would help avoid camera shake.
