Excellent composition and great detail. I also am attracted to old building and decaying structure. You have a great eye and your gallery is full of beautiful shots. Keep up the good work.

Behind The Lens

Taken at the Hermitage Barn Complex at Glasgow park in Newark, Delaware. This is the center of the 4 main doors at the back of the hatchery barn. These barns were moved here to preserve them in the 1920s and we're recently partially restored and put back into use by the local park.
I think it was late afternoon. I prefer to shoot early morning or late afternoon on sunny days
The sun is often too direct here and bright here for what im looking for. I just set up and waited for the right clouds to come along and I used a golden reflector to light up the lower right corner
I didn't have my gear with me so I used my cell phone to take this shot, Samsung Galaxy S5. I did some minor tweaking in Snapseed. I didnt have a tripod so I used a tractor tire as a steady base
I he always been drawn to old barns and decaying architecture. I wanted to capture the texture I. The doors and the center showed all 4 doors including that green one.
Snapseed, all minor tweaks: Sharpening increase, structure decrease, ambiance increase, highlights decrease.
In my camera bag
Canon 70D with kit lens, wide angle and 50mm, ND filters, tripod, reflectors, etc... That being said, I don't always have my gear with me. In those cases, I use my cell. The best camera is the one you have with you.
Most importantly, a steady device for close up/macro shots. Keep reflectors on hand, aluminum foil, mylar, white or yellow paper, etc... Thin material like muslin can also lighten and soften your sunlight if its too harsh and you don't have any clouds overhead
