Frequently Asked Questions

What camera/lens do you use?

Sony A7rii, Minolta X-700
Mitakon 85mm f/1.2, Nikkor 55m f/1.2, Sigma ART 35mm f/1.4, Helios 58mm f/2, Minolta 58mm f/1.4

What editing software do you use?

Adobe Lightroom for color toning, Adobe Photoshop for selective editing (removing things in the background, etc).

After using Dropbox to bring the images to my phone, I'll usually color correct and touch-up the images for social media in various IOS apps such as Google's Snapseed and Mextures.

How do you find all these abandoned places?

I live in Northern New Jersey. New Jersey is the nation's most moved out of state.

Hop in your car, and drive around. You'll find something. Have a passenger keep an eye open for houses that look like they might be abandoned. Usually I'll just close my eyes and point to a town on the map and spend the day exporing all the back roads of the area like I'm playing Pacman and collection all the dots.
