Behind The Lens

Location
It's a former soviet tractor factory that happens to be sitting right in the middle of the city. It exemplifies the phrase 'urban decay'. It stood for 60 odd years before collapse of the Soviet Union, and it was deserted ever since. No guards, no fences - just a huge building that takes the whole street block. Graffiti, goths, junkies... and photographers.
Time
It was closer to the afternoon, just before teilight. It was October and the day turned out misty.
Lighting
I went inside the dome roof so that I get all of these splintering pieces of glass ferlecting the light from the cloudy sky. We tried some shots, where I stood beside, but they weren't dramatic enough.
Equipment
I used my beloved Canon EOS 5D camera with EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS lens, at 70mm. I knew I had to catch all that glass, so I bumped up the ISO to 800 and shot at 1/500s. No flash was used in this case, but it's not that I wasn't wishing it was there.
Inspiration
I love watching at raw emotion people in the streets express. I wanted to emulate that at one place I knew we could get away with breaking into.
Editing
Just plain b&w conversion and a wee bit of sharpening mask to the shattered glass.
In my camera bag
I usually carry only my iPhone, unless I know exactly what and where and who I will take picture of.
Feedback
Urban decay has become the standard of street photography. You have interesting interiors and motley walls and all the stuff you can break. Don't let such an opportunity pass!
