I’ve posted photos of this old schoolhouse before but I had a chance recently to explore it a little more. Plus I had my Eos M camera with the 11-22 lens on me and I wanted the chance to shoot at a wider angle than I have in the past. Beyond that there’s not much else to say. The interior of the building is as simple as it can get, basically one big room. The collapsing floorboards kind of limited where I dared to tread so I stuck to the outskirts.
The first shot of the exterior is a bit of a bummer. I know the dynamic range of the sensor on the Canon is limited in the highlights and I usually work around that. I should have exposed for the super bright sky behind the building but I never paid any attention to it. The one time where chimping would have helped me. Instead I have a too bright, burned out sky and there’s not much I can do about it. I usually do alternate takes in tricky lighting situations but for some reason I only took this one shot, at least from this angle. Other shots of the exterior from different angles turned out better technically but I liked this angle best so I just have to live with it.
Nice to see a schoolhouse even one in disrepair!
Thank you, and they’re fun to explore!
