And now from something completely spooky! Ever wanted to explore and photograph an old, abandoned property but didn’t want to trespass? Come along with host, Brad Barton, for unique and legal access to the historic Nazareth Hospital in Mineral Wells, Texas.
The bottom two floors are being used by a Haunted House, but the upper four floors are in beautifully run down conditions.
We will have a model or two on hand in costume to photograph or you can just collect scenes.
In addition to the fun, participants will:
Enjoy hands-on photography of a derelict building without fear of trespassing
Learn off camera flash and reflected light techniques in this unique situation with models
Collect backgrounds and textures for use in your other work
