I have to admit I do not much urbex photography. To be brutally honest, I’m too unfit to go clambering around old buildings that may crumble and fall at any time - I enjoy the use of all my limbs too much for these types of risks.
Truth be told, this was not really an urbex shoot per se. I have walked around Springburn Park countless times and for some bizarre reason I had never got round to photographing this wonderful building. Luckily for me, the previously padlocked gates and security fences had been prised open which meant I could walk the site.
There is something gloriously beautiful about this type of derelict building. I think it is the fact that it is so easy to visualise them in the former glory; beautiful iron work, blooming flowers, the visitors ambling around the interior, resting for tea and cake.
I decided to use a couple of vintage Canon nFD lenses on this shoot – the Canon nFD 24mm 2.8 and the Canon nFD 100mm 2.8. I have used the 100mm 2.8 on many occasions but this was my first outing with the 24mm 2.8 and which I have to say I found the lens handled very well and captured lovely colours.
These images are the first photographs I have processed using Capture One. I finally decided to give it a proper try out because Lightroom is just becoming turtle slow for me. It is early days but so far I am very happy with what I can achieve in Capture One. The speed difference alone makes the program worthy of consideration.
